944 Possible Causes for Cardiac Conduction Abnormalities

  • MELAS Syndrome

    Palpitations and shortness of breath may be present in some patients with MELAS secondary to cardiac conduction abnormalities such as Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.[] Another cause of high mortality is the less common feature of cardiac involvement, which can include hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, hypertension, and conduction abnormalities[] Causes can be a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and conduction abnormalities, such as atrioventricular blocks or Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.[]

  • Traumatic Heart Rupture

    Patients with conduction abnormalities or arrhythmias require cardiac monitoring.

  • Cardiac Metastasis

    Thus, cardiac metastasis should be considered in a patient with SCC who develops new cardiovascular symptoms or conduction abnormalities.[] They can compress or invade the cardiac conduction system, causing arrhythmias and sudden death.[] Sometimes they may cause symptoms related to compression, arrhythmias and conduction abnormalities [ 2 ] .[]

  • Taxus Poisoning

    Taxus baccata is a widely distributed yew often associated with cases of fatal intoxication, which is related to the high amounts of cardiotoxic alkaloids, taxine A and taxine B, contained in its leaves. In this paper, a case of Taxus fatal poisoning, hypothesized by the forensic autopsy, has been confirmed by the[…][]

  • Hypereosinophilic Syndrome

    Hypereosinophilic syndrome is defined as persistent eosinophilia ( 1500/µL for more than six months) associated with organ involvement, excluding secondary causes. It is a rare, potentially lethal disease that should be considered in cutaneous conditions associated with hypereosinophilia. We report a case of[…][]

  • Kearns-Sayre Syndrome

    Neuromuscular and cardiac conduction abnormalities are most commonly involved in these patients, which may have subtle presenting signs.[] Kearns-Sayre syndrome (KSS) is a rare mitochondrial myopathy and often involves cardiac conduction abnormality and muscle weakness.[] Several other features are frequently encountered, one of the most common being cardiac conduction abnormalities - left anterior fascicular block (with or without right bundle[]
