39 Possible Causes for Asymmetric Thorax

  • Rib Fracture

    Relative fixation of one side of the thorax during labour provides a mechanical advantage to the other side, resulting in an asymmetrical fracture pattern, as in most patients[link.springer.com]

  • Familial Angiolipomatosis

    His thorax was dysmorphic with dropped shoulders, anomalous orientated scapulae, scoliosis and stiff spine (Fig. 1B).[medicaljournals.se] Clinical examination revealed the presence of an asymmetric face, dysmorphic skull with frontal-parietal hyperostosis, hypertelorism, strabismus, long neck and low-set anteverted[medicaljournals.se]

  • Idiopathic Interstitial Pneumonia

  • Pneumopericardium

    In particular, no asymmetrical pulmonary auscultation, subcutaneous emphysema or abnormal heart sounds were present.[doi.org] Other than fractures of the left clavicle and superficial haematomas, there were no abnormalities on physical examination of the thorax.[doi.org]

  • Kyphoscoliosis

    […] was asymmetric with dorsolumbar kyphoscoliosis with a scar over the thoracolumbar spines extending from T3 to L2 and a scar over the right hip.[joacp.org] […] this admission revealed a lateral curvature of the dorsal spine with rotation of the heart, Luque rods present in situ, and a Cobb's angle curvature of 60 [Figure 1] .The thorax[joacp.org]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    NCS revealed a more severe asymmetrical motor polyneuropathy with multiple, segmental demyelination including conduction blocks.[jscimedcentral.com] Thorax CT showed infiltration consistent with pneumonia. Respiratory function tests showed an obstructive and restrictive type of respiratory insufficiency.[jscimedcentral.com]

  • Skeletal Dysplasia

    Some common symptoms of skeletal dysplasias include: Shortening in the bones of the legs and/or arms Bowed or fractured bones A small thorax Abnormal ribs Absence of a limb[chop.edu] Asymmetric bone growth (e.g., one leg is longer than the other) Duplication of fingers or toes Irregular, thickened or thin bones Demineralization A 3-D view of upper skeletal[chop.edu]

  • Microphthalmia with Linear Skin Defects Syndrome

    Bilateral microphthalmia with blepharophimosis, linear lesions of dermal aplasia involving the face, and microcephaly were present in a newborn girl who died at age 9 months from cardiomyopathy resulting in ventricular fibrillation. Autopsy showed an atrial septum defect, persistent gross trabeculation of the left[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Gingival Fibromatosis-Progressive Deafness Syndrome

    Asymmetric growth Hemihypertrophy Myelomeningocele Impaired pain sensation Skeletal muscle hypertrophy Facial asymmetry Inguinal hernia Narrow nail Patchy alopecia Apocrine[mendelian.co] Cardiac rhabdomyoma Orbital cyst Esophageal stenosis Breast carcinoma Short distal phalanx of the thumb Intellectual disability, mild Embryonal neoplasm Asymmetry of the thorax[mendelian.co]

  • Pulmonary Contusion

    In particular, no asymmetrical pulmonary auscultation, subcutaneous emphysema or abnormal heart sounds were present.[doi.org] Other than fractures of the left clavicle and superficial haematomas, there were no abnormalities on physical examination of the thorax.[doi.org]
