160 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Failure to Thrive, Risk of Cancer Possibly Increased

  • Tyrosinemia Type 1

    These cases highlight TT1 as a treatable cause of cardiomyopathy in children.[] The medication lessens the risk for liver cancer. Your child should start taking Nitisinone as soon as possible.[] Although failure to thrive is one of the typical features in HT1, our proband, similar to the reported Scandinavian patients, had normal growth and development.[]

  • Hypothyroidism

    Overt hypothyroidism may exacerbate underlying cardiac disease, but cardiomyopathy severe enough to cause heart failure is rare ( Kahaly 2005 ).[] There is an association between chronic thyroiditis and thyroid nodules, but whether this association is related to an increased risk of thyroid cancer is controversial. 7[] Infants and children may present more often with lethargy and failure to thrive. Women who have hypothyroidism may present with menstrual irregularities and infertility.[]

  • Vitamin B Deficiency

    risk of fracture Mild diarrhea or constipation Impaired vision Possible increased risk of cardiovascular disease Possible increased risk of cancer Lightheadedness or fainting[] […] to thrive and delayed development in infants.[] All the infants were exclusively breast fed and they presented with severe nonspecific manifestations, such as weakness, failure to thrive, refusal to wean, vomiting, developmental[]

  • Myocarditis due to Radiation

    Idiopathic Dilated Cardiomyopathy The term idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy is applied to most patients with nonischemic cardiomyopathy.[] […] that there is no increased cancer risk due to this exposure cannot be excluded.[] Fred Ferri’s popular "5 books in 1" format provides quick guidance on menorrhagia, Failure to Thrive (FTT), Cogan’s syndrome, and much more.[]

  • Gaucher Disease

    The inability to catabolize GL-3 can lead to renal failure, cardiomyopathy, and cerebrovascular accidents. The estimated incidence of Fabry disease is 1 in 40,000 males.[] As enzyme replacement and substrate reduction therapies are expensive and still associated with inflammation, increased risk of cancer and Parkinson disease, targeting C5aR1[] The various symptoms and the age when they are most likely to present are as follows: [4] Newborn Congenital ichthyosis Organomegaly Failure to thrive Brain stem dysfunction[]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    […] was on hemodialysis due to the stage 5 chronic kidney failure and had various comorbid conditions: arterial hypertension, history of acute myocardial infarction, dilative cardiomyopathy[] Pioglitazone has been shown to potentially have a modest beneficial impact on cardiovascular disease but has also been associated with a possible increase in the incidence[] Hyperglycemia, failure to thrive and, in some cases, dehydration occur after birth.[]

  • Sarcosinemia

    Symptoms include visual impairment, blindness, cardiomyopathy, cranial synostosis, growth and mental retardation.[] Whether dietary or supplemental choline is beneficial or harmful to humans is undefined, possible dangers include increased risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer, while[] Clinical manifestations include poor feeding in an infant with failure to thrive and developmental delays; however, no consistent clinical syndrome has been reported.[]

  • Tyrosinemia

    The chronic form presents after the first year of life with chronic liver disease, renal disease, rickets, cardiomyopathy and/or neurologic crises similar to porphyria.[] The medication lessens the risk for liver cancer. Your child should start taking Nitisinone as soon as possible.[] Similarities include failure to thrive with hypoproteinemia, micronodular cirrhosis, alpha-fetoprotein positive hepatocellular carcinoma, renal Fanconi syndrome with renal[]

  • Heart Disease

    METHODS: Seventy seven patients with impaired LV ejection fraction (EF) (37.1 9.4), suspected to have PVCs cardiomyopathy (PVC-CM) ( 10% PVCs burden), referred for RF ablation[] , and in the American Heart Association journal, Circulation, reveals that androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT), a type of prostate cancer treatment, can increase heart risk[] Myocarditis is also a common cause of dilated cardiomyopathy and other cardiomyopathies.[]

  • Fabry Disease

    KEYWORDS: Fabry disease; cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic; gadolinium; magnetic resonance; mutation; phenotype; stroke[] CONCLUSION: Greater knowledge and awareness of cancer in patients with Fabry disease may help identify at-risk individuals and elucidate cancer mechanisms in this rare inherited[] Failure to thrive, swallowing abnormalities, oculomotor apraxia, hepatosplenomegaly, and stridor due to laryngospasm are typical in infants with type 2 disease.[]
