287 Possible Causes for Cardiomegaly, Macroglossia

  • Multiple Myeloma

    Cardiovascular system examination may reveal cardiomegaly secondary to immunoglobulin deposition. Amyloidosis may develop in some patients with MM.[] The aim of this report is to describe a clinical case of an elderly patient with dysphagia related to macroglossia and enlargement caused by primary amyloidosis associated[] […] corresponding to a spinal cord compression), neuropathy, myopathy, positive Tinel sign, or positive Phalen sign Abdominal examination: Hepatosplenomegaly Cardiovascular evaluation: Cardiomegaly[]

  • Amyloidosis

    The chest radiograph did not show any evidence of acute disease or cardiomegaly.[] The patient then received oral melphalan therapy and surgical intervention for macroglossia.[] Common symptoms of heart involvement include: an enlarged heart (cardiomegaly); an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmias); and abnormalities of the heart seen on electrocardiograms[]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    Firstly, the hepatomegaly and cardiomegaly were diagnosed. Then an infantile form of Pompe disease was found.[] Infantile GSDII presents during the first weeks or months of life with poor feeding, failure to thrive, macroglossia, severe hypotonia, cardiomegaly, mild hepatomegaly, and[] Patients have also organomegaly (hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, macroglossia) and feeding difficulties.[]

  • Myxedema

    Cardiomegaly is common, and is thought to be due to either pericardial effusion or underlying heart disease and not to ventricular dilation induced by hypothyroidism.[] Macroglossia is classified as true macroglossia, which exhibits abnormal histology with clinical findings, and relative macroglossia, in which normal histology does not correlate[] If cardiomegaly is present, an echocardiogram should be obtained to rule out a pericardial effusion.[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    However, access to secure the airway and for conventional surgery can be challenging, due to limited neck extension, macroglossia and reduced mouth opening.[] […] hydrocephalus), heart valve abnormalities, distinctive-looking facial features that are described as "coarse," an enlarged liver and spleen (hepatosplenomegaly), and a large tongue (macroglossia[] Beyond neurological, orthopedic, and ophthalmological findings, macroglossia, tonsillar hypertrophy, otitis media and conductive hearing loss, upper airway obstruction, valvular[]

  • Acromegaly

    […] muscle pain, often misdiagnosed as fibromyalgia joint pain arthritis vertebral fractures with or without loss of bone mineral density carpal tunnel syndrome cardiovascular cardiomegaly[] Inspection of the soft tissue revealed only macroglossia, although external palpation indicated a subcutaneous stiffness of the submandibular area.[] […] sweating Tiredness, fatigue, depression Impotence, loss of libido Interrupted menstrual cycle (amenorrhea) Lactation (galactorrhea) Heart disease and heart enlargement (cardiomegaly[]

  • Fucosidosis

    Fucosidosis is a rare lysosomal storage disorder with the clinical features of mental retardation, cardiomegaly, dysostosis multiplex, progressive neurologic deterioration[] […] features psychomotor deterioration, MUSCLE SPASTICITY, coarse facial features, growth retardation, skeletal abnormalities, visceromegaly, SEIZURES, recurrent infections, and MACROGLOSSIA[] […] of fucosidase and resulting in accumulation of fucose in all tissues; marked by progressive cerebral degeneration, muscle weakness with eventual spasticity, emaciation, cardiomegaly[]

  • Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome

    Although cardiomegaly is common, it usually resolves on its own. Childhood malignancies and renal anomalies pose large health threats and mortality risks.[] Its most common feature is macroglossia, being present in most cases. Clinically macroglossia can compromise the airway, cause dysphagia, drooling and poor cosmesis.[] Beckwith Wiedemann syndrome (BWS) is a rare, congenital overgrowth disorder that is characterized by macroglossia, anterior abdominal wall defects, visceromegaly, gigantism[]
