216 Possible Causes for Adenoid Hypertrophy, Headache

  • Sinusitis

    Recent upper respiratory infection Non-infectious inflammation and swelling: allergy, tobacco smoke exposure Adenoid hypertrophy, nasal polyposis What laboratory studies should[] "Headache and fever" is a common presentation to the urgent care and emergency department setting and can have many etiologies.[] Choanal atresia Adenoid hypertrophy Hormonal conditions (e.g., progesterone-induced congestion of pregnancy, rhinitis of hypothyroidism) Gastroesophageal reflux Primary immune[]

  • Patulous Eustachian Tube

    Adenoid hypertrophy can block the torus tubarius (proximal opening of the ET).[] The patient complained of sudden onset of ear fullness and nasal voice as well as typical orthostatic headache.[] Preventive measures may include removal of eustachian tube obstruction, such as hypertrophied adenoids, if present.[]

  • Otitis Media

    The aim of this study was to investigate the roles of T follicular helper (Tfh) cells in secretory otitis media (SOM) combined with adenoidal hypertrophy (AH).Patients with[] The patient was a 55-year-old man who presented to our ENT clinic for evaluation of severe headaches and right-sided otorrhea.[] There is no standardized scheme for preoperative evaluation of adenoid hypertrophy or a consensus on surgical indications for adenoidectomy in children with otitis media with[]

  • Pharyngitis

    Adenoidectomy indications: OSA due to adenotonsillar hypertrophy Chronic adenoiditis Chronic sinusitis Repeat surgery for recurrent otitis media with effusion (OME) References[] In patients from Turkey, symptom onset was at a younger age, fever attacks were of shorter duration, and pharyngitis was more frequent, whereas adenitis, headache, and nausea[] Take paracetamol, ibuprofen or aspirin to ease any pain and other symptoms such as a headache. Do NOT give aspirin to children under 16.[]

  • Bacterial Meningitis

    Although not previously reported, radiofrequency diathermy for adenoid hypertrophy can be considered a risk factor for bacteremia and meningitis.[] A 48 year-old healthy female visited our hospital with strong headache, fever, bilateral hyperemia, and blurred vision in both eyes.[] The patient presented with back pain and urinary retention and this was followed by the development of headache, photophobia and a left VIth nerve palsy.[]

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    The patient was diagnosed with tonsil hypertrophy and nasopharyngeal adenoid hypertrophy and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS).[] The patient was noted to be taking amitriptyline for migraine headache prevention.[] The aim of this study was to evaluate whether pediatric obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) secondary to adenoid hypertrophy causes systemic microvascular dysfunction.[]

  • Maxillary Sinusitis

    Mechanical obstruction of the ostium of the Maxillary sinus results in improper drainage of the sinuses Deviated nasal septum Hypertrophied turbinates Adenoid hypertrophy[] When asked about sinusitis, the patient mentioned occasional episodes of pus taste and intermittent crises of headache lasting for one week.[] Choanal atresia Adenoid hypertrophy Hormonal conditions (e.g., progesterone-induced congestion of pregnancy, rhinitis of hypothyroidism) Gastroesophageal reflux Primary immune[]

  • Allergic Rhinitis

    hypertrophy and asthma.[] After the onset of headache leading to the suspicion of paranasal sinusitis, a computed tomography scan discovered an osteodural defect in the sphenoid sinus roof and a magnetic[] Other symptoms are headache, earache, red eyes, itchy eyes, drowsiness, fatigue and a general feeling of unwell.[]

  • Cortical Blindness

    Severe hypertrophy of the adenoid tissue can cause hypercapnia and acidosis secondary to upper airway obstruction.[] It associates, to varying extents, neurological symptoms such as headaches, confusion, seizures and visual alterations from haemianopsia to cortical blindness.[] Patients with carbon monoxide (CO) intoxication may show neurological signs such as headache, seizures, extrapyramidal findings, and coma.[]

  • Tonsillectomy

    However, this may be due to the presence of biofilms rather than obstructive adenoid hypertrophy, given the lack of a significant (p   0.05) correlation between adenoid hypertrophy[] Four weeks after the surgery the patient was readmitted because of progressive swallowing, trismus, and worsening headache.[] At about one week in the postoperative period, she developed sudden onset severe ("thunderclap"), recurrent headaches and focal neurological signs including visual disturbances[]
