682 Possible Causes for Aphagia, Hypersalivation, 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).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In our case, we illustrate a giant right-sided Zenker's diverticulum responsible for complete aphagia in a 78-year-old male patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] dysphagia associated with solids amongst the adult population.[symptoma.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] Four of five patients had episodic nonexertional midchest pain; two patients experienced intermittent dysphagia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The usual presentation is intermittent dysphagia with occasional chest pain.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Pseudobulbar Palsy

    A case of left atrial (LA) myxoma presenting as pseudobulbar palsy, due to multiple cerebral infarcts, without any cardiac manifestations, is presented. LA myxoma is rare cause of embolization to CNS causing ischemic infarcts. Due to multiple CNS infarcts patient can present with varied clinical picture and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Foreign Body in the Esophagus

    BACKGROUND: The use of either flexible endoscopy (FE) or rigid endoscopy (RE) for removal of ingested foreign bodies (FBs) impacted in the esophagus is still discussed controversially. METHODS: We report a consecutive series of 139 patients with FB impaction in the esophagus. During a 6-year period, 69 men and 70[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Phlegmonous Esophagitis

    We report a woman presenting with unrelenting odynophagia and chest pain. Computed tomography identified a deep neck infection with acute phlegmonous esophagitis. However, esophageal intramural dissection with mucosal rupture occurred after routine nasogastric-tube insertion, and pus was vomited thereafter. The[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rabies

    The diagnosis is easy when a non-immunised patient presents with hydrophobia and hypersalivation after a bite by a known rabid animal but more difficult when a patient presents[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms As the disease progresses, neurological symptoms appear and may include: Insomnia Anxiety Confusion Slight or partial paralysis Excitation Hallucinations Agitation Hypersalivation[rabies.emedtv.com] As the disease progresses, more specific symptoms appear and may include insomnia, anxiety, confusion, slight or partial paralysis, excitation, hallucinations, agitation, hypersalivation[cdc.gov]

  • Botulism

    This disease is notifiable in the UK. Botulism is caused by botulinum toxin which is a poison produced by the obligate anaerobic bacteria Clostridium botulinum, Clostridium baratii and Clostridium butyricum. The organism is common in the soil and can survive in this environment in the form of a resistant spore. There are[…][patient.info]

  • 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] Hypersalivation (water brash).[medsask.usask.ca] Intermittent non-progressive dysphagia was the main presenting complaint, while one also had an acute food impaction.[web.archive.org]
