298 Possible Causes for Cataract, Livedo Reticularis, Pulmonary Embolism

  • Anticardiolipin Antibody Syndrome

    Clots that travel to the lungs can cause a blockage in one of the pulmonary arteries ( pulmonary embolism ).[webmd.com] reticularis, is sometimes known as Sneddon syndrome cutaneous manifestations (e.g. livedo reticularis, livedo racemosa) thoracic manifestations pulmonary manifestations ([radiopaedia.org] If a blood clot forms in the arms or legs, it may travel to the lungs ( pulmonary embolism ), brain (stroke) or heart ( heart attack ).[cedars-sinai.edu]

  • Churg-Strauss Syndrome

    Side effects of corticosteroids include bone loss, high blood sugar, weight gain, cataracts and hard-to-treat infections. Other immunosuppressive drugs.[drugs.com] In our patient, pulmonary embolism was totally asymptomatic and was unexpectedly diagnosed on a thoracic CT scan.[err.ersjournals.com] reticularis, urticaria, necrotic bullae and digital ischaemia.[patient.info]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Surgically induced scleritis is a rare complication following ophthalmologic surgery such as cataract surgery, pterygium excision, strabismus surgery, and retinal detachment[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] embolism would be appropriate in the care of hospitalized patients with RA. 12 Other factors may contribute to accelerated atherosclerosis and a higher incidence of ischemic[web.archive.org] Since she had manifestations of livedo reticularis, and liver dysfunction which was atypical for RA patients, a percutaneous needle liver biopsy was performed revealing arteritis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

    We conducted a 3-year study of siblings of AAA probands and siblings of a control group (cataract surgery patients) of the same age.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Multiple pulmonary artery embolisms were also noted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Atheroemboli from small abdominal aortic aneurysms produce livedo reticularis of feet (ie, blue toe syndrome).[emedicine.com]
