251 Possible Causes for Clubbed Finger, Cushing's Disease, Hemoptysis, Pneumothorax

  • Small Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    The clinical presentation encompasses cough, hemoptysis, chest pain, and systemic signs of weight loss and fatigue in patients who reached the later stages of the disease.[] Usually computed tomographic (CT) guidance is used for the procedure, thus enabling needle placement and permitting evaluation of complications such as pneumothorax and bleeding[] The diagnosis of small cell carcinoma was based on repeated hemoptysis and cytologic finding of a rapidly growing mass over the forehead.[] Precursor lesion - uncommonly seen: Pulmonary neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia. [1] Clinical: /-Hemoptysis. Gross Central location (close to large airways) - typical.[]

  • Relapsed Small Cell Lung Cancer

    The local tumor growth process may be represented by a cough, dyspnea, and hemoptysis.[] For the patients with limited disease and who submitted in treatment the median survival is 15-20 months and for those with extensive disease the survival reduced in 7-11[] Hemoptysis.[] […] months. [ 6 ] Not very often, patients with SCLC may develop paraneoplastic syndromes like Cushing syndrome from secretion of adrenocorticotropic hormone, inappropriate antidiuretic[]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    Finger clubbing (hypertrophic osteoarthropathy) can be found in all types of bronchogenic carcinoma.[] Symptoms may include cough, dyspnea, hemoptysis and chest pain and the diagnosis is made using clinical, imaging and histopathologic criteria.[] No complications such as a pneumothorax or bleeding occurred.[] […] syndrome ): carcinoid and small-cell subtypes carcinoid syndrome gynaecomastia adrenal insufficiency (Addison disease): from bilateral metastases 7 hyperparathyroidism: NSCLC[]

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    Finger clubbing and changes in the bronchial circulation.[] The bronchial arteries are the culprit vessels in over 90% of cases of hemoptysis.[] Pneumothorax is a serious but common complication in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF).[] The recurrence of a pneumothorax is defined as one that occurs on the same side seven days after a pneumothorax has resolved ( Flume 2005 ).[]

  • Bronchiectasis

    fingers, fever, and anemia in more advanced cases Prevention of Bronchiectasis Be sure children have been properly vaccinated against childhood diseases.[] After treatment, the patient no longer had hemoptysis.[] Surgery is indicated in unsuccessful medical treatment and complications of bronchiectasis e.g. haemoptysis, lung abscess, lung masses and pneumothorax.[] Other complications that can arise from bronchiectasis include recurrent pneumonia, lung abscesses, and pneumothorax, the leakage of air into the pleural space.[]

  • Lung Abscess

    Finger clubbing is present in one third of patients. Dental decay is common especially in alcoholics and children.[] Clinicians should consider the possibility of PAA/PAP in the differential diagnosis of hemoptysis during the treatment of patients with lung abscess.[] We present a case of acute empyema with intractable pneumothorax associated with ruptured lung abscess caused by Mycobacterium avium in an immunocompromised patient.[] […] of the fingers Fatigue Bluish discoloration of the skin Lung Abscess Prevention Thorough dental hygiene should be pursued.[]

  • Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis

    Other symptoms include: - fatigue - weight loss - low-grade fever - non-productive cough - clubbing of fingers (advanced stages) - cyanosis (bluish tinge) of fingernails Diagnosis[] The only variable capable of predicting treatment failure was the history of hemoptysis.[] Active pleural drainage of the pneumothorax was unsuccessful and after two months, surgical suture of the lung was performed under general anaesthesia.[] There was no clubbing of the fingers and no adenopathy. The chest was clear and expanded normally.[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Massive hemoptysis is a life-threatening complication of pulmonary tuberculosis.[] The patient developed a large left-sided iatrogenic pneumothorax, which recurred and failed to resolve despite the successful insertion of both Seldinger and surgical chest[] This may show: Clubbing of the fingers or toes (in people with advanced disease) Swollen or tender lymph nodes in the neck or other areas Fluid around a lung (pleural effusion[] Unlike the common PLCH cases, this PLCH case has cervical lymph node involvement and right pneumothorax.[]

  • Bronchioloalveolar Carcinoma

    CONCLUSIONS: Karnofsky performance status, pN, TNM stage and hemoptysis appear to have significant impact on predicting patient survival in cases of BAC.[] Lobar or segmental atelectasis rarely occurs, although intraairway spread can create a check valve obstruction, causing localized hyperinflation and pneumothorax.[] Teruo Iwasaki, Akihide Matsumura, Satoru Yamamoto, Hirofumi Sueki, Takashi Mori and Keiji Iuchi, Unsuspected lung cancer accompanied by catamenial pneumothorax, The Japanese[] The most frequent symptoms and signs are cough, sputum, shortness of breath, weight loss, hemoptysis, and fever. Bronchorrhea is unusual and a late manifestation.[]

  • Benign Fibrous Mesothelioma of the Pleura

    Other symptoms include chronic cough, chest pain, fever, but perhaps the most distinguishing symptom is the presence of clubbed fingers.[] […] are 50 years old Most occur in the inferior portions of the hemithoraces Clinical Findings May be asymptomatic and found incidentally May produce chest wall pain, cough, hemoptysis[] Waller DA, Morritt GN (1999) Video-assisted thoracoscopy in the management of spontaneous pneumothorax. In: Walker WS (ed) Video-assisted thoracic surgery.[] If there is obstruction of the airway, also hemoptysis and pneumonia [2,10] could be seen.[]
