34 Possible Causes for Aphagia, Dysphagia

  • Esophageal Obstruction

    86-year-old man in a very poor general condition with a 10-year history of a Zenker's diverticulum as a cause of a complete obstruction of the esophagus with subsequent aphagia[] […] palliation of dysphagia.[] In our case, we illustrate a giant right-sided Zenker's diverticulum responsible for complete aphagia in a 78-year-old male patient.[]

  • Lower Esophageal Ring

    Between 1970 and 1978, we saw 24 patients with lower esophageal rings and complaints of episodic aphagia or progressive dysphagia.[] One patient had recurrence of dysphagia that occurred 6 months after initial electrocautery incision.[] Episodic aphagia results from impaction of food at the site of the ring. Since 1970, 88 patients have been seen with either dysphagia or episodic aphagia.[]

  • Pseudobulbar Palsy

    A 28-year-old, previously healthy, normotensive woman suddenly developed an acute pseudobulbar palsy with dysarthria, dysphagia, hypernasal voice and mild right arm paresis[] The outstanding clinical features were severe dysarthria and dysphagia compared to minimal limb involvement.[] The patient presented with sudden onset of dysphagia, anarthria, and glossplegia.[]

  • Foreign Body in the Esophagus

    The better patient comfort with FE was also reflected in a significantly lower rate of dysphagia (15%) compared to RE (48%; p 0.0001).[] She became symptomatic 2 years before presentation, but presented for treatment when dysphagia to both solids and liquids developed.[] CASE REPORT: The patient was an 80-year-old man with a history of dysphagia and swallowed dentures.[]

  • Esophageal Spasm

    Four of five patients had episodic nonexertional midchest pain; two patients experienced intermittent dysphagia.[] Finally, an esophagectomy was performed because of sever dysphagia accompanied by persisting weight loss.[] Dysphagia was the major complaint (89%), while 44% of patients complained of chest pain and 33% of both symptoms.[]

  • Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

    The dysphagia presented earlier in PSP and MSA groups as compared to PD groups.[] Both the time to development of dysphagia and that from dysphagia to death are shorter in PSP than in Parkinson disease (PD) [ 5 ].[] […] clinical criteria for idiopathic PD and did not have supranuclear ophthalmoplegia, she had several atypical features, including early postural instability with falls, early dysphagia[]

  • Progressive Bulbar Palsy

    Inclusion Body Myositis Associated with Progressive Dysphagia: Treatment with Cricopharyngeal Myotomy.[] Evaluation of dysphagia is conducted through fiber endoscopy and videofluoroscopy.[] Mechanism of dysphagia in the individual patient The dominant mechanism causing neurogenic dysphagia (table 1 ) may differ in two patients with the same disease and can clearly[]

  • Botulism

    Botulism is a rare disease caused by intoxication leading to muscle weakness and rapidly progressive dysphagia.[] Therefore, the classical diagnostic pentad of botulism (dry mouth, nausea, vomiting, dysphagia, diplopia, fixed dilated pupils) may be of limited sensitivity in single cases[] Iatrogenic botulism that presents with generalized weakness, dysphagia, and respiratory distress is a rare but significant complication in BT/A treatment.[]

  • Esophageal Burn

    ) Gastroenterology consultation; endoscopy Consider surgery (Persistent daily and nightly regurgitation, odynophagia, dysphagia, poor response to drugs) Maximum dosage of[] Clinical signs such as abdominal pain, dysphagia, or aglutition were observed in 21.6% of the study group and 40% of the control group.[] Often, a narrowing of the esophagus (esophageal stricture) leads to trouble swallowing or dysphagia. Bleeding.[]

  • Bulbar Poliomyelitis

    […] poliomyelitis is a specific type of an extremely rare viral paralytic disease in which the typical findings of acute flaccid paralysis are accompanied by bulbar symptoms - dysphagia[] […] which control the respiratory system of the body as a result of which a child affected with Bulbar Polio is likely to experience severe breathing difficulties along with dysphagia[] It can lead to respiratory muscle failure, distress of respiratory control, dysphagia, dysphonia and dysarthria.[]
