19 Possible Causes for Acute Respiratory Failure, Severely Disproportionate Short Stature

  • Kyphoscoliosis

    This article reports a case study of 'Sue', a 37 year old female who was transferred to a metropolitan hospital's intensive care unit in acute respiratory failure secondary[] short-limb short stature Hydrops fetalis Short palm Enlargement of the proximal femoral epiphysis Decreased cervical spine mobility Osteopenia Sloping forehead Skeletal dysplasia[] While its role in chronic respiratory failure is well documented, its use in acute respiratory failure is less well defined.[]

  • Growth Failure

    […] accidental trauma, or respiratory failure)—Growth hormone use has not been studied in patients with these serious illnesses.[] A distinctive autosomal recessive syndrome of severe disproportionate short stature with short long bones, brachydactyly, and hypotrichosis in two consanguineous arab families[] Make sure you tell your doctor if you have any other medical problems, especially: Acute critical illnesses (e.g., complications following open heart or abdominal surgery,[]

  • Chondrodystrophy

    […] pericarditis【急性心膜炎】 *acute renal failure【急性腎不全】(acute renal insufficiency) *acute renal insufficiency【急性腎不全】(acute renal failure) *acute respiratory distress syndrome 【急性呼吸窮迫症候群[] Pseudoachondroplasia usually manifests in the 2 nd year of life with ligamentous laxity and tends to develop severe disproportionate short stature.[] It’s distinguished by a moderate to severe form of disproportionate short-limb short stature.[]

  • Osteogenesis Imperfecta

    […] cases where life expectancy may be decreased, largely as a result of respiratory failure OI does not discriminate — it is found in males, females, and children of all ethnicities[] Pseudoachondroplasia usually manifests in the 2 nd year of life with ligamentous laxity and tends to develop severe disproportionate short stature.[] […] especially in adulthood The symptoms and severity of OI vary greatly from: Mild cases that may go undetected Moderate cases with multiple symptoms and more fragile bones Acute[]

  • Acro-Pectoral Syndrome

    Montipora White Syndrome Miscellaneous Unclassified PAWS Means Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome Miscellaneous Unclassified AHFS Means Acute Heart Failure Syndrome Miscellaneous[] […] coxa vara and disproportionate short stature, abnormal epiphyses and vertebra plana Femoral head ossification not until 5 years Vertebrae are flattened throughout and pear[] Unclassified SARS Means Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Medical ARDS Means Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Medical Physiology eARDS Means Experimental Acute Respiratory[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 6

    (requiring additional BMT) in 4 patients, acute respiratory distress syndrome in 3 patients, and death in 4 patients.[] Short stature is described as disproportionate because the trunk may be shorter than the legs. In severe cases, final height may be less than 4 feet (120 centimeters).[] […] infections (including sepsis) in 7 patients, Epstein-Barr virus lymphoproliferative disorder in 1 patient, myasthenia gravis in 1 patient, hemolytic anemia in 1 patient, graft failure[]

  • Dyschondrosteosis-Nephritis Syndrome

    Lung infections with acute respiratory failure occur throughout the first decade of life because of the thoracic cage abnormalities ( 206, 207 ).[] It often goes unrecognized in childhood and is diagnosed in adult life when disproportionate short stature becomes obvious [ 87 ].[] Avoid contact with infectious patients, reduce the risk of developing acute respiratory infections. It is necessary to sanitize foci of chronic infection.[]

  • Pipecolic Acidemia

    Affected infants often have recurrence of acute illness with metabolic acidosis, vomiting, failure to thrive, lethargy, hypotonia, hepatomegaly, seizures and respiratory distress[] RCDP types II and III are characterized by variable severity of clinical manifestations and by disproportionately short stature that primarily affects the proximal parts of[]

  • Spondylo-Megaepiphyseal-Metaphyseal Dysplasia

    […] heart failure High blood pressure Respiratory diseases Lung diseases Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome Alveolar capillary dysplasia with misalignment of pulmonary veins (ACD/MPV) Cutis[] short stature with short, stiff neck and trunk and relatively long limbs, fingers and toes (which may present flexion contractures), severe vertebral body ossification delay[] Skeletal malformations affect the bones of the arms, legs and spines eventually resulting in disproportionate short stature. Hearing loss is often severe.[]

  • Thoracomelic Dysplasia

    Eosinophilic Pneumonia with Respiratory Failure Induced by Bonzai (Synthetic Cannabinoid) Inhalation P359 9:30 am - 4:15 pm A1504 Acute Fibrinous and Organizing Pneumonia[] short-limb short stature Hypoplastic ilia Severe short stature Hyperlordosis Limb undergrowth Irregular capital femoral epiphysis Abnormal facial shape High myopia Severe[] Lung Injury Due to Ceftaroline C51: Toxic Ingestions and Exposures P875 9:30 am - 4:15 pm A4596 Dabble with Danger: A Case of Severe Respiratory Failure Following Inhalation[]
