22 Possible Causes for Atelectasis, Lumbar Spinal Cord Tumor

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

  • Small Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    TNM classification TX Positive cytology only T1 3 cm T1a 2 cm T1b 2–3 cm T2 Main bronchus 2 cm from carina, invades visceral pleura, partial atelectasis T2a 3–5 cm T2b 5–7[annonc.oxfordjournals.org] […] or pericardial effusion M1b Distant metastasis TX Positive cytology only T1 3 cm T1a 2 cm T1b 2–3 cm T2 Main bronchus 2 cm from carina, invades visceral pleura, partial atelectasis[annonc.oxfordjournals.org]

  • Relapsed Small Cell Lung Cancer

    31.4 Conclusion Patients with a treatment-free interval of less than 3 months after first-line treatment, failing first-line treatment, with poor performance status or major comorbidities, or with low tolerance to first-line chemotherapy should in general not receive second-line chemotherapy because of very low[…][link.springer.com]

  • Pulmonary Tumor Embolism

    Pleural effusions that cause sufficient compressive atelectasis may lead to a mismatch between ventilation and perfusion that can be manifested as dyspnea.[blogs.nejm.org] A chest x-ray was obtained which revealed bilateral atelectasis.[wjso.biomedcentral.com] The endobronchial lesion, as well as the consequences (eg, lobar atelectasis or, less commonly, complete collapse of a unilateral lung) can be identified on CT scans.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Cauda Equina Syndrome

    Chest radiographs showed atelectasis or infiltration in the left lower lobe. Radiographs of the spine showed narrowing of the L3–4 and L4–5 disk spaces.[nejm.org] Causes of cauda equina syndrome include herniation of lumbar intervertebral discs, abnormal growths ( tumor or cancer ) adjacent to the lower spinal cord, localized infection[medicinenet.com] The most common causes of caudal equina syndrome include acute disc herniation or traumatic injury at the terminal portion of the spinal cord, tumors (malign or benign), or[symptoma.com]

  • Periureteritis

    Pleural effusion, lobar atelectasis, and mediastinal adenopathy can accompany any cell types.[dreb.info] Lobar atelectasis: pneumonia, TB, chronic inflammatory disease, allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis 2.[dreb.info]

  • Bronchial Adenoma

    May be associated with obstructive pulmonary emphysema, atelectasis, obstructive pneumonia, and even lung abscess, the tumor is sometimes covered.[healthfrom.com] CORD INJURY BRAIN TUMORS SPINE TUMORS CHAPTER 42 ORTHOPAEDICS LOWER EXTREMITY NERVES LUMBAR DISC HERNIATION CERVICAL RADICULOPATHY UPPER EXTREMITY LOWER EXTREMITY LEG COMPARTMENTS[books.google.com] The chest x-ray showed an atelectasis in the right lower lung field, and a tumor was recognized in the right lower bronchus by bronchoscopy and bronchography.[jstage.jst.go.jp]

  • Basal Ganglia Mass Lesion

    Nerves that branch off the spinal cord to the legs, bowel, and bladder arise in the back (thoracic and lumbar spine).[cancer.org] Most tumors of the spinal cord start in the neck and can cause symptoms in the arms and legs, as well as affect bowel and bladder function.[cancer.org] The nerves that reach the arms begin in the spinal cord at the level of the neck (cervical spine).[cancer.org]

  • Lumbar Spinal Cord Tumor

    Extradural spinal cord tumors are encountered in more than 50% of cases . In descending order of frequency, they are found in the thoracic and lumbar areas.[healio.com] Cervical spinal cord tumors can lead to weakness and sensory changes of both arms and legs whereas thoracic or lumbar spinal tumors do not affect arm function.[pacificneuroscienceinstitute.org] Spinal tumors are also referred to by the part of the spine in which they occur: Cervical Thoracic Lumbar Sacrum Clinically, spinal cord tumors are divided into three major[stfranciscare.org]

  • Thoracic Neuroblastoma

    Some passive atelectasis in both lungs due to mass effect of the tumor. 5. Small subpleural infiltration in both lower lungs, may due to chronic inflammatory process.[mypacs.net] Tumor calcification ( arrow ) is noted in the spinal cord.[oncohemakey.com] Intraspinal tumor extends from the lower thoracic level through the lumbar level. The patient underwent emergent resection of the intraspinal tumor ( arrows ).[oncohemakey.com]
