19 Possible Causes for Chest X-Ray Abnormal, Systemic Autoinflammation

  • Erythema Nodosum

    Ahmet Gül, Behçet Disease, Textbook of Autoinflammation, 10.1007/978-3-319-98605-0_35, (647-665), (2019).[doi.org] 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] 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]

  • Pericarditis

    More recently, there has been evidence that the innate immune system and autoinflammation contribute to acute and recurrent pericarditis. [6, 7] Chronic idiopathic pericarditis[emedicine.com] Chest X-rays may be normal, but if there is a significant pericardial effusion, the heart shape may be abnormal. It is sometimes described as globular or flask shaped.[emedicinehealth.com] Then doctors look for signs of pericardial effusion by doing a chest x-ray and echocardiography (a procedure that uses ultrasound waves to produce an image of the heart).[msdmanuals.com]

  • Acute Pericarditis

    More recently, there has been evidence that the innate immune system and autoinflammation contribute to acute and recurrent pericarditis. [6, 7] Chronic idiopathic pericarditis[emedicine.com] Chest X-ray showed normal findings, and mild elevation of C-reactive protein was observed in the blood chemistry data.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] X-ray.[en.my-ekg.com]

  • Vasculitis

    To date, several cases of systemic lupus erythematosus, Aicardi-Goutieres syndrome, familial chilblain lupus, retinal vasculopathy-cerebral leukodystrophy have been reported[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] pain Coughing up blood Abnormal chest x-ray or CT scan Heart Symptoms: Heart attack Angina Stomach and colon Symptoms: Bleeding from stomach or bowels Abdominal pain or cramping[upmc.com] These include the primary systemic vasculitides, monogenic autoinflammatory diseases and neuroinflammatory diseases.[ucl.ac.uk]

  • Uveitis

    Autoinflammation may simply be defined as self-directed tissue inflammation, where local factors at disease-prone sites determine activation of the innate immune system.[doi.org] LAB INVESTIGATIONS • Baseline invs- CBC, ESR, RFT,LFT, • PPD test - exclude tuberculosis/sarcoidosis • Chest X-ray-- findings indicative of sarcoidosis or tuberculosis. •[slideshare.net] […] signals emanate [ 34 ]; this hypothesis is closely allied with the proposed generic definition of autoinflammation.[doi.org]

  • Systemic Scleroderma

    Lupus erythematosus, vasculopathy, instead of autoinflammation, appears to be clinically important in systemic scleroderma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The laboratory abnormalities included raised ESR in 87.8%, ANA positive in 89.1%, proteinuria in 6.0%, abnormal chest X-ray in 65.3%, abnormal barium swallow in 70.2% and[dx.doi.org] The fact that autoinflammation does not represent the major role in the maintenance of the disease is also evident by the lack of therapeutic effects of classical systemic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Constrictive Pericarditis

    More recently, there has been evidence that the innate immune system and autoinflammation contribute to acute and recurrent pericarditis. [6, 7] Chronic idiopathic pericarditis[emedicine.medscape.com] Pericardial calcification was defined as calcification seen either with fluoroscopy or on chest x-ray.[content.onlinejacc.org] In most cases of uncomplicated pericarditis, a chest X-ray is usually normal.[medicinenet.com]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    More recently, there has been evidence that the innate immune system and autoinflammation contribute to acute and recurrent pericarditis. [6, 7] Chronic idiopathic pericarditis[emedicine.com] A 48-year-old man was referred for an abnormal shadow in his chest x-ray.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She was tachycardic and hypotensive with cardiomegaly on a chest X-ray.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pyoderma

    The dominant hypothesis is that altered innate immunity leads to systemic autoinflammation ( 5 ).[frontiersin.org] Other diagnostic tests such as chest X-ray, abdominal ultrasound and a double contrast barium enema, performed in order to exclude any underling diseases, revealed no abnormalities[worldwidewounds.com] Chest X-ray Abdominal ultrasound. If digestive symptoms are present: upper digestive tract endoscopy and colonoscopy.[scielo.br]

  • Acute Pleuropericarditis

    Autoimmunity, Autoinflammation, or a Distinct Explanation?[omicsonline.org] The patient’s chest x-ray ( Figure 1 ) showed an abnormal “globular”-appearing heart with a left-sided pleural effusion.[jucm.com] X-ray.[en.my-ekg.com]
