518 Possible Causes for Aphagia, Esophageal Motility Disorder, Intermittent Dysphagia

  • Lower Esophageal Ring

    These rings cause intermittent dysphagia for solids. Symptoms can begin at any age but usually do not begin until after age 25.[merckmanuals.com] Between 1970 and 1978, we saw 24 patients with lower esophageal rings and complaints of episodic aphagia or progressive dysphagia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Spasm By G WANTRAPPEN and J HELLEMANs With 3 Figures 355 Related Conditions 361 Gastroesophageal Sphincter 375 750 377 Related Syndromes 390 Myasthenia Gravis 398 Extrapyramidal[books.google.com]

  • Esophageal Spasm

    We present a 43-year-old female with paroxysmal chest and abdominal pain, nausea, salivation, and intermittent dysphagia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Esophageal motility disorders: medical therapy. J Clin Gastroenterol. 2008 May-Jun. 42(5):652-8. [Medline].[emedicine.medscape.com] Four of five patients had episodic nonexertional midchest pain; two patients experienced intermittent dysphagia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Esophageal Obstruction

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

    The case of a patient with intermittent dysphagia and suspected GERD is discussed. Pharyngoesophageal scintigraphy was performed. Reflux test was negative.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Motility Disorders Deglutition Disorders Esophageal Diseases Gastrointestinal Diseases Digestive System Diseases Signs and Symptoms, Digestive Signs and Symptoms[clinicaltrials.gov] Intermittent non-progressive dysphagia was the main presenting complaint, while one also had an acute food impaction.[web.archive.org]

  • Esophagitis

    In adults, the most common presenting symptoms are intermittent dysphagia and dyspepsia. 4, 5 In children, the presentation is more variable with symptoms such as regurgitation[bjgp.org] […] stasis caused by severe motility disorders such as scleroderma and achalasia.[radiopaedia.org] However there are many types of dysphagia and the one that occurs in EoE is a feeling of food travelling more slowly down or (usually) sticking in the chest, often intermittently[gutscharity.org.uk]

  • Progressive Bulbar Palsy

    Abstract Our objective was to study the clinical course of patients diagnosed with progressive bulbar palsy (PBP). We reviewed all 392 medical records of ALS patients seen between 1 January 2000 and 31 July 2007. Patients with isolated PBP at presentation were selected and classified into those with normal EMG of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pseudobulbar Palsy

    Pseudobulbar palsy is a symptom featuring a failure to control basic movements of the face and occasional abnormal emotional responses. It is not a distinct condition itself, but rather a result of various neurodegenerative conditions. An individual displaying pseudobulbar palsy gradually loses their ability to regulate[…][symptoma.com]
