5,609 Possible Causes for Aphagia, Esophagitis, 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.[] To better define the relationship between the lower esophageal ring and esophageal reflux, we analyzed, retrospectively, the records of 18 hospitalized patients with radiologically[] Between 1970 and 1978, we saw 24 patients with lower esophageal rings and complaints of episodic aphagia or progressive dysphagia.[]

  • Esophageal Spasm

    We present a 43-year-old female with paroxysmal chest and abdominal pain, nausea, salivation, and intermittent dysphagia.[] Diffuse esophageal spasm, will have is 20 percent premature contractions on esophageal pressure topography.[] Four of five patients had episodic nonexertional midchest pain; two patients experienced intermittent dysphagia.[]

  • Esophageal Obstruction

    Dysphagia scores (mean SD) were 3.37 0.52 before and 0.90 0.43 after stent implantation (P 0.002).[] ) and esophageal webs which can be congenital or acquired.[] 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[]

  • 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[] Some of the common forms of esophagitis include infectious esophagitis, eosinophilic esophagitis, pill esophagitis, reflux esophagitis and candida esophagitis.[] 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[]

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

    The case of a patient with intermittent dysphagia and suspected GERD is discussed. Pharyngoesophageal scintigraphy was performed. Reflux test was negative.[] […] and 25 (34.72%) grade B esophagitis.[] Intermittent non-progressive dysphagia was the main presenting complaint, while one also had an acute food impaction.[]

  • Zenker Diverticulum

    A watch-and-wait approach should be used for patients with mild symptoms (ie, mild or intermittent dysphagia) and minor functional limitations.[] An uncommon disorder, an esophageal diverticulum is an outpouching that develops in a weakened area of the esophagus.[] In our case, we illustrate a giant right-sided Zenker's diverticulum responsible for complete aphagia in a 78-year-old male patient.[]

  • Nutcracker Esophagus

    An 87-year-old woman with severe retrosternal pain and intermittent dysphagia was referred to the clinic for further evaluation.[] The aim of this study was to analyze patients with NE and determine the relationship between distal esophageal contraction amplitude and lower esophageal sphincter (LES) pressure[] The usual presentation is intermittent dysphagia with occasional chest pain.[]

    Missing: Aphagia
  • Plummer-Vinson Syndrome

    The clinical features include intermittent dysphagia for solid foods (rarely or never for liquid).[] Plummer-Vinson Syndrome is a condition where iron deficiency is associated with difficulty swallowing due to the presence of an esophageal web.[] Presentation [ 3, 4 ] The presentation is usually with painless, intermittent dysphagia.[]

  • Foreign Body in the Esophagus

    RESULTS: Four patients with esophageal perforation with associated mediastinitis secondary to retained esophageal foreign bodies were identified.[] Foreign body-induced perforation is one of the common etiologies of benign esophageal perforations.[] OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to validate the usefulness of MDCT for diagnosis of a sharp or pointed esophageal foreign body according to esophageal level.[]

  • Phlegmonous Esophagitis

    […] eventually alleviated the acute phlegmonous esophagitis in our patient.[] (C) Endoscopy revealed an esophageal double lumen, compatible with esophageal intramural dissection.[] Computed tomography identified a deep neck infection with acute phlegmonous esophagitis.[]
