215 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Tongue Weakness, Vacuolization

  • Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy

    In contrast, patients with distal myopathy with rimmed vacuoles revealed many rimmed vacuoles, on average in 20% of the fibers, and their oculopharyngeal muscles were spared[] Symptoms may include: difficulty swallowing (dysphagia) tongue weakness and atrophy weakness in the proximal muscles drooping eyelids (ptosis) difficulty gazing upwards and[] […] of OPMD-related deaths are attributed to aspiration pneumonia.[]

  • Oculo-Pharyngo-Distal Myopathy

    Muscular dystrophy changes with rimmed vacuoles were the main histopathological changes.[] […] muscles Bulbar Dysphagia: Oropharyngeal Dysarthria: Hoarse & Nasal voice Tongue weakness Limbs Legs Arms Distal: Anterior tibial; Finger extensors Onset: 5 years after disease[] Aspiration pneumonia and malnutrition are the leading cause of death in patients with OPMD, but do not shorten life expectancy because these tend to occur late in the disease[]

  • Progressive Bulbar Palsy

    IVIg) Myopathies, including inclusion body myositis, which is characterized by wasting and weakness of deep finger flexors and the quadriceps femoris with typical rimmed vacuoles[] Clinical manifestations include dysarthria, dysphagia, facial weakness, tongue weakness, and fasciculations of the tongue and facial muscles.[] pneumonia Diagnosis There is no special test for PBP.[]

  • Stroke

    Microscopic evaluation during the first 24 to 48 hours discloses anoxic neurons, vacuolization of the white matter due to disentanglement of swellings of myelin and axon.[] All patients had dysarthria, with only one having mild tongue weakness and only four having facial weakness.[] pneumonia, pressure ulcers, etc.).[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Cytoplasmic vacuoles were found in the remaining anterior horn motor neurons of the lumbar spinal cord.[] […] movement of the facial muscles and tongue; and weak palatal movement.[] A frequent complication is aspiration pneumonia due to insufficient swallowing and breathing.[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Incorporation of sucrose into lysosomes causes swelling of epithelial cells and cytoplasmic vacuolization of the tubules, especially in the proximal tubules.[] Lofaso , Tongue weakness is associated with respiratory failure in patients with severe Guillain‐Barré syndrome , Acta Neurologica Scandinavica , 119 , 6 , (364-370) , (2008[] Thromboembolism, pneumonia, skin breakdown. Cardiac arrhythmia. Ileus. Aspiration pneumonia. Urinary retention. Psychiatric problems - eg, depression, anxiety.[]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    At higher magnifications, numerous GFAP‐positive astrocytic cell debris and “clasmatodendrosis,” defined as cytoplasmic swelling and vacuolation of astrocytes with beading[] Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away: nausea vomiting diarrhea constipation heartburn loss of appetite sores on the mouth and tongue runny[] Dysphagia management is collaborative and can enhance nutrition and hydration goals as well as reduce the risk of aspiration pneumonia.[]

  • Occipital Lobe Tumor

    Diffuse vacuolization (spongiosis) and arteriolosclerosis in the frontal white matter occurs in vascular dementia. Arch Neurol 1996 ; 53 : 325 –332 Hommel M, Gray F.[] In this case dysphagia can results from weak neuromotor functioning with impairment of the tongue and pharyngeal function and/or from antiretroviral therapy.[] ) one made up of tissue resembling that in which it grows. lipoid cell tumor of ovary a usually benign ovarian tumor composed of eosinophilic cells or cells with lipoid vacuoles[]

  • Tay-Sachs Disease

    Cerebrospinal fluid analyses revealed vacuolated macrophages that contained long parallel needle-like intracytoplasmic inclusions.[] Infants appear to be normal until about 3-6 months of age when neurological development slows and muscles become weak.[] Death generally occurs by age 5, due usually to cachexia (wasting away) or aspiration pneumonia. There are several forms of TSD.[]

  • Distal Myopathy Type 3

    Tubulofilamentous inclusion, myeloid bodies, and autophagic vacuoles in the area corresponding to rimmed vacuoles ( d ; bar 1 μm).[] (ie, tongue and pharyngeal weakness) is manifested by symptoms of dysarthria and dysphagia.[] pneumonia.[]
