2,441 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Compound Muscle Action Potential with Low Amplitude, Muscle Biopsy showing Inflammatory Changes

  • Dermatomyositis

    Representative muscle biopsy micrograph (from another patient) shows inflammatory myopathic changes seen in dermatomyositis. (From Reference 3 , with permission.)[rc.rcjournal.com] Pulmonary manifestations range from aspiration pneumonia to interstitial lung disease (ILD), sometimes with complications such as pulmonary arterial hypertension (see these[orpha.net] Low compound muscle action potentials (CMAP) amplitudes may not necessarily indicate a neuropathic process, as it may reflect muscle atrophy and fibrosis.[doi.org]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    Muscle biopsy shows inflammatory reaction in association with degenerative changes of the muscle fibers.[scielo.br] The incidence of dysphagia, rate of aspirations, rate of aspiration pneumonias and treatment results of dysphagia were analyzed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, the low compound muscle action potential amplitudes could be explained by the loss of excitable muscle tissue that occurs in myopathies.[jamanetwork.com]

  • Polymyositis

    Muscle biopsy shows chronic inflammatory changes consistent with polymyositis.[emedicine.com] As the patients were at high risk of "aspiration pneumonia", tracheostomy and PEG tubes were placed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pulmonary involvement in polymyositis includes respiratory muscle weakness, aspiration pneumonia, interstitial lung disease, infection and drug-induced pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Childhood Dermatomyositis

    Subclinical abnormalities on modified barium swallow examination may be seen in up to 80% of JDM patients. 41 Such patients are at risk for aspiration pneumonia.[obgynkey.com] pneumonia, or respiratory muscle involvement.[ijpd.in] Aspiration pneumonia. Difficulty swallowing can also cause you to breathe food or liquids, including saliva, into your lungs (aspiration). Breathing problems.[mayoclinic.org]

  • Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy

    The first muscle biopsy appeared normal except for some round-cell collections, whereas the second one, 5 years later, showed marked dystrophic changes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of OPMD-related deaths are attributed to aspiration pneumonia.[symptoma.com] OPMD and the resulting dysphagia contributed to multiple intubations, tracheostomy, aspiration pneumonia, and a prolonged hospital course.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Thromboembolism, pneumonia, skin breakdown. Cardiac arrhythmia. Ileus. Aspiration pneumonia. Urinary retention. Psychiatric problems - eg, depression, anxiety.[patient.info] muscle action potentials reduced amplitude with relatively preserved conduction velocity implicates axonal neuropathy delayed/absent F waves implicates nerve root involvement[step2.medbullets.com] GBS mortality, estimated at about 5 percent, results from respiratory distress syndrome, aspiration pneumonia, sepsis, pulmonary embolism, and arrhythmias [9].[journalofethics.ama-assn.org]

  • Tropical Myositis

    Sixteen showed changes of suppurative myositis i.e. non-specific acute inflammatory reaction, muscle necrosis with myocytolysis, vacuolation of cytoplasm and loss of striations[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Culture of the aspirate showed Staphylococcus aureus in nine patients (75%), Klebsiella pneumonia in one patient (8.33%) and no growth in two patients (16.67%) even after[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Twenty four muscle biopsies were taken.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    Complications Aspiration pneumonia due to throat muscle weakness. Acute respiratory failure during an exacerbation.[patient.info] Distinguishing features of the RNS test in LEMS and MG are confirmed in this direct comparison study: the low compound muscle action potential amplitude, decrement at LRS,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with pneumonia should be admitted because they often are taking immunosuppressant medications and are at a high risk for aspiration pneumonia.

    Culture of the aspirate showed Staphylococcus aureus in nine patients (75%), Klebsiella pneumonia in one patient (8.33%) and no growth in two patients (16.67%) even after[najms.org] The child underwent CT-guided aspiration of the abscesses. Cultures yielded S. aureus .[journals.lww.com] The child underwent CT-guided aspiration of the abscesses. Cultures yielded S. aureus.[journals.lww.com]
