287 Possible Causes for Arthralgia, Progressive Contractures, X-Ray Abnormal

  • Polyarthritis

    The characteristic rapid progression of palmar contracture is a key finding that suggests the potential existence of a malignancy. [Indexed for MEDLINE] Free full text[] When suspicion for a particular diagnosis is achieved, medical imaging in the form of X-rays or CT may prove useful in providing evidence to support the diagnosis.[] Although bisphosphonates are safety drugs, they have numerous side-effects such as arthralgia, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein, gastrointestinal[]

  • Erythema Nodosum

    Subsequently the patient developed progressive skin and joints contracture. A repeated skin biopsy done three months later confirmed the diagnosis of NSF.[] The x-ray is done to look for one or more enlarged lymph nodes in the chest and abnormal markings in the lungs.[] In this case report, we suggest arthralgia, EN, and Achilles tendinitis could coexist with AGPB.[]

  • Mixed Connective Tissue Disease

    Progressive contracture may result in deformity and loss of function of the hand.[] Sullivan et al . described chest X-ray abnormalities in 10/34 MCTD patients [ 29 ].[] Raynaud's phenomenon was the most common initial symptoms (50%), followed by arthralgia (30%) and swollen hands (16%).[]

  • CINCA Syndrome

    It can lead to progressive contracture of the knees and elbows with joint deformity due to patella or epiphysis overgrowth.[] It is diagnosed by blood and spinal fluid tests together with X-rays to identify the bone effects of the condition and genetic tests can confirm diagnosis in some people.[] In terms of joint involvement, recurrent flares that may be accompanied with overgrowth of the patella are most frequently reported, together with arthralgia that can be severe[]

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis

    These deformities are excessive dorsal kyphosis with compensatory cervical lordosis and hip flexion contracture.[] Diagnosis requires showing sacroiliitis on x-ray.[] Symptoms Approximate number of patients (when available) Abnormal form of the vertebral bodies 90% Abnormality of the oral cavity 90% Abnormality of the sacroiliac joint 90% Arthralgia[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    ; hip containment surgeries; corrective osteotomy for progressive valgus deformity at the knee; posterior spinal fusion Multispecialty care is mandatory for these patients[] Most people with the severe form of the disorder also have dysostosis multiplex, which refers to multiple skeletal abnormalities seen on x-ray.[] The most frequently reported adverse reactions included: chills, vomiting, nausea, arthralgia, diarrhea, tachycardia, abdominal pain, blood pressure increased, and oxygen[]

  • Internal Joint Prosthesis Broken

    As one progresses distally to the midthigh level, it is increasingly difficult to compensate prosthetically for a hip flexion contracture.[] At the short transfemoral level, flexion contracture of up to 25 degrees may be accommodated by prosthetic alignment, but hip extensor power, needed for good prosthetic knee[]

  • Angioimmunoblastic Lymphadenopathy

    Ann Rheum Dis 2008 The P.F.A. syndrome (Palmar fasciitis with polyarthritis) Rapidly progressive flexion contractures of both hands Nodular thickening of fascia of the palms[] She reported no night sweats, loss of weight, or arthralgia.[] […] lymphadenopathy (stage III or IV disease), hepatosplenomegaly, and skin rash B symptoms: fever, night sweats, weight loss ( Hsi: Hematopathology, Second Edition, 2012 ) Less common: arthralgias[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 6

    , hirsutism, joint contractures, hepatosplenomegaly, short stature, and skeletal, respiratory, and cardiac abnormalities, with a characteristic pattern of a chronic and progressive[] Individuals with Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome may be described as having ‘dysostosis multiplex’ a group of skeletal abnormalities that can be seen on x-ray examination.[] Individuals with this condition may also have dysostosis multiplex, which refers to multiple skeletal abnormalities seen on x-ray.[]

  • Arthritis

    Flexion contractures may require intensive exercise, casting, or immobilization (eg, splinting) in progressively more stretched-open positions.[] Tests may include: blood tests – to help make a diagnosis, or to monitor the condition or the drug treatments offered x-rays – which can show bone abnormalities or damage,[] The characteristics present are chronic synovitis, arthralgia, impaired joint mobility in at least one joint, and erosion with destruction of cartilage and subchondral bone[]
