2,527 Possible Causes for Acute Respiratory Failure, Muscle Biopsy showing Variation In Fiber Size, Onset between 6 and 14 Years

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    The resultant respiratory failure can easily occur from the underlying progressive nocturnal hypoventilation and hypoxia or from an acute cardiac insufficiency.[] […] disease in which death usually occurs by the third decade of life (mostly from cardiopulmonary compromise), despite steroid treatment. [13] The most common inciting event is a respiratory[]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    ., respiratory failure, cardiac disease), or to both. CONCLUSIONS: Use of succinylcholine in children with dystrophinopathy is contraindicated.[] The muscle biopsy was myopathic with increased fiber size variation and many internal nuclei, but no dystrophy. No comorbidity was found.[] Muscle biopsy revealed mild myopathic features including variation in fiber size and a few necrotic and regenerating muscle fibers.[]

    Acute respiratory failure due to diaphragmatic weakness revealing a polymyositis. Eur J Intern Med. 2002;13(3):203-205.[] The muscle biopsy showed loss of fascicular architecture, variation in fiber size with atrophic fibers, and degenerating and regenerating fibers with adipose tissue infiltration[] Causes of death among the 27 patients who died during the follow-up period were cardiac in 22% (4 acute myocardial infarction and 2 congestive heart failure), respiratory[]

  • Dermatomyositis

    ECMO was giving when the patient suffered acute respiratory failure.[] Muscle biopsy from a patient with polymyositis showing endomysial inflammatory cells (arrows) and variations of fiber size without a specific pattern (C, H&E 40 ).[] METHODS: We retrospectively enrolled 14 patients with CADM-associated RPIPs and acute respiratory failure treated with PMX-DHP, corticosteroids, and immunosuppressive agents[]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Muscle MRI revealed marked atrophy in the serratus anterior muscle in both patients. Muscle biopsy findings showed central nuclei and variations in fiber size.[] One of the patients showed ragged red fibers in muscles of the biceps brachii. To our knowledge, this is the first report of typical winged scapula in DM1.[]

  • Alcohol Abuse

    Sex differences in patterns of drinking and rates of alcohol abuse and dependence begin to emerge during the transition from late puberty to young adulthood. Increases in pubertal hormones, including gonadal and stress hormones, are a prominent developmental feature of adolescence and could contribute to the[…][]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    Muscle biopsy can show diffuse variation in fiber size, necrosis, regeneration and fibrosis.[] Early motor milestones: Most normal; Toe walking common Range: 2 to 45 years; Median 14 to 20 years; 71% between 6 to 18 years Weakness: Proximal legs; Rectus abdominus No[] Muscle biopsy shows evidence of a dystrophy with random variation in fiber size and evidence of degeneration and regeneration. Type one fibers may predominate.[]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    The prognosis of acute respiratory failure requiring invasive mechanical ventilation is believed to be grim in this population.[] Acute respiratory failure with diffuse pulmonary opacities is an unusual manifestation following influenza vaccination.[] There is a need for a clear discussion about decision making earlier than when acute respiratory failure ensues.[]
