11 Possible Causes for Asthenia, CT Scan showing Adrenal Mass, Ventricular Fibrillation

  • Hypokalemia

    Adrenal imaging with computerized tomography (CT) scan showed a low-density mass measuring 2.1 cm in diameter in the left adrenal (Figure 2 ).[] To report a case of ventricular fibrillation caused by severe hypokalemia probably associated with sertraline use.[] Abstract We report the case of a perioperative cardiac arrest (ventricular fibrillation) of a patient undergoing elective orthopedic surgery due to moderate hypokalemia (serum[]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Answers QUESTION 1 The CT scan (figure 2 ) shows a large mass (arrow) arising from the region of the right adrenal gland.[] Excess or deficiency of the acidic ions results in increased respiratory rate, breathing trouble, sweating and asthenia.[] Here, a young woman with prior episodes of auditory stimulus-induced syncope presented with LQTS and ventricular fibrillation (VF) with hypomagnesaemia and hypocalcaemia after[]

  • Pheochromocytoma

    If imaging with MRI or CT scans of the adrenal glands shows a mass in the gland (or outside it), surgery may be done.[] Most frequent all grade IFN-α-related toxicities were asthenia (n 10), lymphopenia (n 7), thrombopenia (n 6), and anemia (n 5).[] Cardiac arrhythmias, such as atrial and ventricular fibrillation, may occur because of excessive plasma catecholamine levels.[]

  • Hypercalcemia

    The thoracic-abdominal CT scan showed a retroesophageal mass measuring 5.6 3.2 6.8 cm, which was suspicious for parathyroid tumour, in addition to bilateral hypodense adrenal[] : ventricular fibrillation ) and muscle/smooth muscle weakness.[] […] arrhythmias (ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation) and sudden cardiac death.[]

  • Acromegaly

    […] clinical symptoms of acromegaly: acral enlargement; headache or visual field defects; facial changes; widely spaced teeth; diabetes; hyperhidrosis; arthralgia and/or arthritis; asthenia[] , supraventricular tachycardia, and ventricular arrhythmias) is also more common, especially during exercise 35. • In a more recent study, cardiovascular risk factors were[] […] which is initially characterized by cardiac hypertrophy, followed by diastolic dysfunction and ultimately failure of systolic function • The presence of arrhythmias (atrial fibrillation[]

  • Hyperaldosteronism

    […] years old female patient, with history of diabetes mellitus and hypertension, receiving metformin (500 mg BID) and atenolol (50 mg BID), presented to the Emergency Room with asthenia[] Symptoms: High blood pressure Headache Muscle weakness Fatigue Intermittent paralysis Numbness Signs and tests: Low serum potassium level Abdominal CT scan that shows adrenal[] Ventricular fibrillation occurred, and severe hypokalemia was found.[]

  • Periodic Paralysis

    A computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen showed a nodular mass on the left adrenal gland, although laboratory examination revealed the patient had not developed primary[] Patient O.R, aged 19, presented marked asthenia and lower limbs paralysis, following high carbohydrate meal.[] Missing the diagnosis can result in possible fatal complications such as hypercapneic respiratory failure and ventricular fibrillation.[]

  • VIPoma

    CT: 5cm mass tail & body of pancreas, no hepatic or adrenal lesions. Octreotide treatment started. Bowel frequency improved, hypokalaemia corrected.[] During the previous 6 weeks, she had had untreated profuse diarrhea ( 10 watery stools per day), a 10‐kg loss of weight, and severe asthenia.[] fibrillation resulting from electrolyte imbalance reveals vipoma in MEN1 syndrome Tiziana Cavalli,Francesco Giudici,Raffaella Santi,Gabriella Nesi,Maria Luisa Brandi,Francesco[]

  • ACTH-Dependent Cushing Syndrome

    Surprisingly, in our patient CT scan and PET denied tumoral nodules in the most common sites of ectopic ACTH secrection [4], but showed a large adrenal mass suggestive for[] Her main complaint was a severe asthenia associated with impaired night rest, weight gain, nocturia, and decreased of libido.[] fibrillation Ventricular premature beats Ventricular tachycardia Vertebral column Vertebral fractures Vesicoureteral reflux Vestibular neuritis Virtual histology slide box[]

  • Acquired Adrenogenital Syndrome

    The CT scan on the right shows a large right adrenal mass outlined in yellow under the normal sized liver (in red ).[] Arthritis, Ascites, Aspartate Aminotransferase Decreased, Aspartate Aminotransferase Increased, Aspiration, Aspiration Tracheal, Aspiration Tracheal Abnormal, Asterixis, Asthenia[] Arrhythmia, Ventricular Dysfunction, Ventricular Extrasystoles, Ventricular Fibrillation, Ventricular Hypertrophy, Ventricular Hypokinesia, Ventricular Hypoplasia, Ventricular[]
