181 Possible Causes for Chest X-Ray Abnormal, Progressive Contractures

  • Scoliosis

    CEREBRAL PALSY SCOLIOSIS • Most often thoracolumbar curve • Pelvic obliquity & hip contracture present INDICATIONS • Progressive curve of any degree • Normal mortality 92.[slideshare.net]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Acute renal failure secondary to progressively decreasing renal blood flow (hepatorenal syndrome) may develop.[merckmanuals.com] Chronic alcoholism, rather than liver disease, causes Dupuytren contracture of the palmar fascia (see Figure: Dupuytren Contracture ), vascular spiders, myopathy, and peripheral[merckmanuals.com]

  • Erythema Nodosum

    The x-ray is done to look for one or more enlarged lymph nodes in the chest and abnormal markings in the lungs.[sharecare.com] Subsequently the patient developed progressive skin and joints contracture. A repeated skin biopsy done three months later confirmed the diagnosis of NSF.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Factors favouring secondary EN were as follows: prolonged fever, cough, sore throat, not relapsing EN, abnormal chest X-ray, leukocytosis, an erythrocyte sedimentation rate[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    Progressive scoliosis and contracture formation may require surgical intervention.[emedicine.com] Ankle contractures may be corrected with appropriate heel cord release and lengthening.[emedicine.com] Spinal fusion to correct scoliosis may be scheduled based on the progression of spinal deformity and the age of the patient.[emedicine.com]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    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] , skeletal myopathy and wasting EMD, LMNA Myotonic dystrophy Myotonia, weakness, baldness and cataracts ZNF9, DMPK1 Duchenne/Becker Progressive X-linked proximal myopathy[ahajournals.org] The next one is a chest x-ray which I'll just abbreviate CXR and this is going to show something called cardiomegaly. This just means enlarged heart.[khanacademy.org]

  • Marfan Syndrome

    Diagnosis Clinical criteria Genetic testing Echocardiography/MRI (measurement of the aortic root, detection of valve prolapse) Slit-lamp examination (lens abnormalities) X-rays[merckmanuals.com] Contractures usually improve with time. Kyphosis/scoliosis is present in about half of all affected individuals.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chest X-ray revealed osseous deformities previously mentioned and a heart size that encompassed almost entire left hemi-thorax.[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com]

  • Kyphoscoliosis

    Chest X-ray showed severe kyphoscoliosis with a Cobb's angle of 120 0 [Figure 1] and patchy infiltrates.[joacc.com] Muscle weakness Pain Flexion contracture SOURCES: ORPHANET OMIM MESH MENDELIAN More info about PROGRESSIVE PSEUDORHEUMATOID ARTHROPATHY OF CHILDHOOD Other less relevant matches[mendelian.co] […] limbs, associated with joint contractures.[uniprot.org]

  • Mixed Connective Tissue Disease

    Sullivan et al . described chest X-ray abnormalities in 10/34 MCTD patients [ 29 ].[academic.oup.com] Progressive contracture may result in deformity and loss of function of the hand.[dartmouth-hitchcock.org] Dyspnoea, tachycardia and bibasilar crackles were significantly associated with the existence of active ILD ( P Radiological investigations Chest X-rays showed abnormalities[academic.oup.com]

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis

    Further clues to the diagnosis are suggested by X-ray abnormalities of the spine and the presence of the genetic marker HLA-B27 identified by a blood test.[medicinenet.com] These deformities are excessive dorsal kyphosis with compensatory cervical lordosis and hip flexion contracture.[physio-pedia.com] Young patients need a great deal of encouragement and support as self-worth understandably diminishes with the progression of postural deformity.

  • Funnel Chest

    Physicians use chest X-rays or CT scans to create images of the internal structures of the chest. These help measure the severity of the curvature.[healthline.com] Progresses to weakness of all 4 limbs, facial spasm, severe extensor contracture and atrophy of muscles.[messybeast.com] X-ray The right heart border is not visible on this X-ray In patients with pectus excavatum the sternum is located abnormally posteriorly and consequently the heart is displaced[radiologymasterclass.co.uk]
