112 Possible Causes for Chvostek Sign, Hypomagnesemia

  • Hypoparathyroidism

    The following are signs of hypocalcemia: Chvostek's sign (watch video) is the twitching of the facial muscles in response to tapping over the area of the facial nerve.[smartypance.com] Blood laboratory study results indicated serum hypocalcemia, hypomagnesemia, and hyperphosphatemia associated with a low parathyroid hormone level.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] awareness among physicians worldwide of this often unknown association, as life-threatening cardiac and neuromuscular complications can arise with unrecognized hypocalcemia and hypomagnesemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bartter's Disease

    Hypotension - may be symptomatic or asymptomatic based on volume status Tetany - positive Chvostek's and Trouseau's signs may be present in the setting of hypomagnesemia and[clinicaladvisor.com] In addition, some affected patients may have neuromuscular irritability as manifested by a positive Chvostek /or Trousseau sign or frank tetany due to alkalosis and hypomagnesemia[madeasy.de] […] type of genetic inheritance, manifested hypokalemia, metabolic alkalosis, hyperreninemia, hyperplasia juxtaglomerular apparatus (JGA), hyperaldosteronism, in some patients, hypomagnesemia[adc.bmj.com]

  • Hypomagnesemia

    signs.[derangedphysiology.com] Hypomagnesemia was defined by serum magnesium concentration 0.74mmol/L.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chvostek sign is an involuntary twitching of the facial muscles elicited by a light tapping of the facial nerve just anterior to the exterior auditory meatus.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Hypocalcemia

    His examination demonstrated a slight resting tremor, normal strength, and negative Chvostek sign.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] General incidence of hypomagnesemia was 23.36%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] sign: Twitching of the ipsilateral facial musculature (perioral, nasal, and eye muscles) by tapping over cranial nerve VII at the ear Chvostek's sign is neither sensitive[medicine.uiowa.edu]

  • Gitelman Syndrome

    Chvostek's and Trousseau's signs were positive. Her clinical and neurological examinations revealed Grade 3 quadriparesis without sensory loss.[sjkdt.org] Following her admission, intravenous potassium and magnesium supplementation was commenced to counter the observed hypokalemia and hypomagnesemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Laboratory tests showed hypokalemia, metabolic alkalosis, hypocalciuria, and hypomagnesemia related to genetically proven GS.[jrheum.org]

  • Magnesium Deficiency

    Chvostek’s Sign and Trousseau’s Sign are both clinical tests for involuntary muscle movements, and both may indicate either calcium or magnesium deficiency, or both.[ancient-minerals.com] A fourth of the patients who are diagnosed with diabetes have a concurrent hypomagnesemia.[symptoma.com] Among 111 patients with a positive EMG or Chvostek's sign, the frequency of MVP on M-mode echocardiography was 36%.[mdheal.org]

  • EAST Syndrome

    The possibility of calcium metabolism disorder was considered and corroborated by the presence of positive Chvostek's sign, a latent sign of tetany.[ijcpjournal.org] […] localizes to the basolateral membrane of the renal distal convoluted tubule, and its loss of function mimics renal features of Gitelman syndrome, with hypokalemic alkalosis, hypomagnesemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Individuals also demonstrated significant hypomagnesemia and hypocalciuria.[renalfellow.blogspot.com]

  • Conn Syndrome

    May also be a metabolic alkalosis, hypomagnesemia and mild hypernatraemia.[myvmc.com]

  • Autosomal Dominant Hypocalcemia Type 1

    The physical findings which classically demonstrate increased neuromuscular irritability due to hypocalcemia are Trousseau's sign and Chvostek's sign.[endocrinologyadvisor.com] Hypomagnesemia Magnesium is essential for PTH release.[clinicaladvisor.com] General physical examination revealed positive Chvostek and Trousseau signs [Figure 1] . She was oriented to time, place, and person with no focal neurological deficit.[ijpm.info]

  • Hypokalemia

    sign ipsilateral facial muscle contraction caused by tapping the facial nerve Trousseau sign carpopedal spasms by inflating the sphygmomanometer above systolic blood pressure[step2.medbullets.com] Hypophosphatemia, hypokalemia, and hypomagnesemia were frequent in hospitalized pediatric patients before and during the first 4 days of PN infusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hypomagnesemia is common in GS, but some types of BS can also present with such a phenotype.[clinchem.aaccjnls.org]
