623 Possible Causes for Chest X-Ray Abnormal, Increased Susceptibility to Infections

  • Viral Lower Respiratory Infection

    Contrary to what people may think, other factors, such as becoming chilled, wet, or tired, do not cause colds or increase a child's susceptibility to infection.[msdmanuals.com] X-ray together with cough, sputum production, dyspnea, fever ( 38.0 C), auscultatory abnormal breath sounds and rales.[karger.com] We here show that some IFIH1 alleles increase susceptibility to viral respiratory infections, but the same LoF variants are known to be protective against type 1 diabetes[pnas.org]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Symptoms include labored breathing, the inability to forcefully blow air out of the lungs, and an increased susceptibility to respiratory tract infections.[encyclopedia.com] Tests may include: Chest x-ray, if your provider suspects pneumonia Pulse oximetry, a painless test that helps determine the amount of oxygen in your blood by using a device[nlm.nih.gov] Your breathing may sound abnormal or rough.[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypersensitivity

    Physiologically relevant temperature increases, such as may occur in the context of a fever or bacterial infection, may also permeabilize epithelial monolayers by increasing[dx.doi.org] X-ray.[cedars-sinai.edu] […] paracellular flux [ 108 ], thereby rendering the intestine conditionally susceptible to opportunistic invasion by gluten peptides.[dx.doi.org]

  • Shwachman Syndrome

    Affected individuals with neutropenia may also have additional abnormalities believed to result from an increased susceptibility to infections.[rarediseases.org] These may include increased tooth decay (dental caries), mouth ulcers, and/or disease of the tissues that surround and support the teeth (periodontal disease).[rarediseases.org] […] repeated bacterial infections, such susceptibility may vary from case to case, depending upon the degree of neutropenia and other immune factors that help the body to fight off infections[rarediseases.org]

  • Adenovirus Infection

    Increasingly potent immunosuppressive agents have reduced the incidence of rejection of transplanted organs while increasing patient susceptibility to opportunistic infections[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Both TSA and MG-132 pretreatments could increase the CAR expression in the two cell lines, but the drug pretreatments could only make A549 cells more susceptible to adenovirus[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] infectivity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Asthma

    susceptibility to and morbidity from respiratory infection.[doi.org] (a) The chest x-ray shows an abnormal distension of the fundus of the stomach.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Furthermore, numerous epidemiological and experimental studies suggest an association between exposure to NO 2, O 3, PM and combustion products of biomass fuels and an increased[doi.org]

  • Pneumonia

    susceptibility to infection have caused concern. 5 Of special interest is the possibility that acid-suppressive drugs could increase susceptibility to respiratory infections[doi.org] During the first wheezing episode in children with abnormal vital signs, heart failure should be considered in the differential diagnosis, and a chest X-ray should be performed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In this syndrome, the chest X-ray shows diffuse abnormalities, yet the patient does not appear severely ill.[emedicinehealth.com]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    A pathological condition of the lungs marked by an abnormal increase in the size of the air spaces, resulting in labored breathing and an increased susceptibility to infection[web.archive.org] Chest CT may reveal abnormalities that are not apparent on the chest x-ray and may also suggest coexisting or complicating disorders, such as pneumonia, pneumoconiosis, or[merckmanuals.com] susceptibility to chest infections.[betterhealth.vic.gov.au]

  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection

    We tested the hypothesis that exposure to TiO 2 -NP results in increased susceptibility to RSV infection and exacerbation of airway inflammation via NGF-mediated induction[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] consistent with lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) on a chest X-ray relative to the most recent chest X-ray, as determined by the local radiologist.[clinicaltrials.gov] Increased local IL-10 production is associated with decreased production of type I and type 2 interferons, leaving patients susceptible to respiratory viral infections.[journals.plos.org]

  • Scoliosis

    […] to chest infections such as pneumonia Problems with pregnancy because of the increased load on the already compromised spine Increased risk of bone loss Physical disability[betterhealth.vic.gov.au] […] back pain Inflammation of the back bones (vertebrae) Breathing difficulties as the ribcage is compressed Injury to the heart and lungs caused by deformities of the ribcage Susceptibility[betterhealth.vic.gov.au]
