493 Possible Causes for Aphagia, Intermittent Dysphagia, Pyrosis

  • 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.[] […] including at least one of the following was present: overt esophagitis noted at endoscopy or surgery (14 cases), histologic evidence of esophagitis (3 cases), and/or symptoms of pyrosis[] Between 1970 and 1978, we saw 24 patients with lower esophageal rings and complaints of episodic aphagia or progressive dysphagia.[]

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

    The case of a patient with intermittent dysphagia and suspected GERD is discussed. Pharyngoesophageal scintigraphy was performed. Reflux test was negative.[] The report presents a case of a 46-year-old male patient, previously treated because of dysphagia, pyrosis, vertigo while standing up and impotency.[] Intermittent non-progressive dysphagia was the main presenting complaint, while one also had an acute food impaction.[]

  • 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[] Description Symptoms The most common symptoms are: dysphagia food impaction thoracic pain heartburn (pyrosis) If the inflammation of the oesophagus and related symptoms are[] 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[]

  • Esophageal Spasm

    We present a 43-year-old female with paroxysmal chest and abdominal pain, nausea, salivation, and intermittent dysphagia.[] Four of five patients had episodic nonexertional midchest pain; two patients experienced intermittent dysphagia.[] The usual presentation is intermittent dysphagia with occasional chest pain.[]

  • 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[…][]

  • Pyrosis

    For both forms of esophageal spasms, periods of contractions often occur intermittently.[] For example, pyrosis is popularly known in French as brûlure epigastrique and in Spanish as ardor de estómago. Pyrosis is the Greek word meaning burning.[] R12 R10.9 Unspecified abdominal pain R11 Nausea and vomiting R11.12 Projectile vomiting R11.13 …… of fecal matter R11.2 Nausea with vomiting, unspecified R12 Heartburn R13 Aphagia[]

  • Zenker Diverticulum

    A watch-and-wait approach should be used for patients with mild symptoms (ie, mild or intermittent dysphagia) and minor functional limitations.[] […] a subdiverticular or Heller myotomy plus a Nissen procedure, 2 pre- sented fair results: one because of intermittent dysphagia, the other due to occasional retrosternal pyrosis[] In our case, we illustrate a giant right-sided Zenker's diverticulum responsible for complete aphagia in a 78-year-old male patient.[]

  • Peptic Esophagitis

    Intermittent dysphagia, separated by long periods of no symptoms, is most probably suggestive of a Schatzki's ring.[] Typical symptoms include pyrosis, dysphagia and regurgitation.[] Intermittent esophageal dilation, typically in an “on-demand” fashion for recurrent symptoms of dysphagia, is also a possible maintenance strategy.[]

  • Esophageal Obstruction

    Dysphagia scores (mean SD) were 3.37 0.52 before and 0.90 0.43 after stent implantation (P 0.002).[] 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[] In our case, we illustrate a giant right-sided Zenker's diverticulum responsible for complete aphagia in a 78-year-old male patient.[]

    Missing: Pyrosis
  • Esophageal Ulcer

    Left: 68 year-old man with dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) to solids, and intermittent odynophagia (pain with swallowing).[] The intermittent reflux of gastric contents produces discomfort in swallowing resulting in dysphagia, odynophagia and ultimately weight loss.[] One week later, the patient began to complain of dysphagia and odynophagia, accompanied by pyrosis.[]
