4,773 Possible Causes for Calcifications

  • Tendinitis

    We present a case of acute retropharyngeal calcific tendinitis with an unusual location of calcification anterior to the C5-C6 disc.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] KEYWORDS: acute calcific tendinitis of the longus colli muscle; acute prevertebral calcific tendinitis; calcific retropharyngeal tendinitis; computed tomography of the neck[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When involving the wrist, acute calcific tendinitis is often misdiagnosed and mistaken for infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Medial Sclerosis

  • Pseudoxanthoma Elasticum

    […] cardiovascular system, exemplifying a model for conditions characterized by soft tissue calcification.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lower limb arterial calcification (LLAC) was determined by non-contrast enhanced helicoidal CT-scan.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A selective and orally bioavailable TNAP inhibitor prevented calcification in ABCC6 mutant cells in vitro and attenuated both the development and progression of calcification[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Therefore, we hypothesized that Gal-3 could mediate valve calcification in AS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There was also a negative correlation between the presence of macrophages/T cells and calcification.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Calcium tissue deposition observed in dilaysis patients have been linked to low level of Fetuin-A, a powerful inhibitor of ectopic calcification.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pleural Calcification

    Abstract Pulmonary calcifications associated with chronic renal failure are rare conditions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Mass miniature radiography in 1969 detected a high prevalence of pleural calcification in three villages in northwest Greece.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Three cases of pleural calcification associated with pancreatitis are reported, each of which showed bilateral basal curvilinear calcification.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pilomatrixoma

    Therefore, when a giant tumour with abundant inner calcification is present in a young patient, the possibility of a pilomatrixoma should be considered.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These tumors may contain calcification, which, when present, is helpful in suggesting the diagnosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other diagnoses included sebaceous and dermoid cysts, foreign body reaction, calcification in lymph gland, and fat necrosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tropical Pancreatitis

    Plain radiographs (Panel A) and computed tomographic images (Panel B, coronal view) of the abdomen revealed coarse, well-defined, and dense calcifications within the body[nejm.org] Tropical calcific pancreatitis. Ceylon Medical Journal , 53(1), pp.4–6. DOI: Published on 09 Dec 2008. Downloads PDF (EN)[cmj.sljol.info] The pattern is typical of the large intraductal calculi of tropical calcific pancreatitis, which has been increasingly recognized as a cause of early-onset, nonalcoholic,[nejm.org]

  • Aortic Stenosis with Bicuspid Valve

    Abstract Percutaneous aortic balloon valvuloplasty failed to relieve the obstruction in 2 elderly patients with calcific aortic stenosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cardiac CASE NUMBER 4,555 Added December 10, 2013 Diagnosis Bicuspid Valve With Extensive Calcification and Aortic Stenosis Diagnosis Hidden - Click to View Pearls Cardiac[ctisus.com] […] edges of the valve which represents a specific additional cause of obstruction in calcific bicuspid aortic valve of the elderly. 1989 S.[karger.com]

  • Calcific Tendinitis of the Shoulder

    […] the radiologic changes over time of calcific deposits.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Calcific tendinitis of the shoulder is a process involving calcium deposition commonly in the rotator cuff tendons.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The pathogenesis of calcific tendinitis and the optimum management of patients presenting with acute symptoms are unclear.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Constrictive Pericarditis

    KEYWORDS: calcification; pericardium; porphyria[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] calcification PA and lateral close-ups show thick pericardial calcification around apex of heart from patient with history of tuberculous pericarditis Calcification is seen[learningradiology.com] In this report, we present the case of a 46-year-old man with Churg-Strauss syndrome, in whom we were able to document the development of symptomatic calcific constrictive[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
