2,061 Possible Causes for Complete Blood Count Abnormal, Pulsus Paradoxus, Superior Vena Cava Syndrome

  • Bronchial Adenocarcinoma

    Growing tumors may place pressure on the superior vena cava, resulting in its obstruction and symptoms of superior vena cava syndrome.[pathwaymedicine.org] .: Searching for pulsus paradoxus and correlates in cardiac tamponade. Int. J. Cardiol ., 145, 127-1288, 2010. 13. Theologides A.: Neoplastic cardiac tamponade.[degruyter.com] vena cava syndrome ( SVC syndrome ): Compression of the superior vena cava impairs the venous backflow to the right atrium, resulting in venous congestion in the head, neck[amboss.com]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Pericardial : initially nonspecific; may be signs of pericardial effusion (pulsus paradoxus, elevated JVP) or constrictive pericarditis.[patient.info]

  • Asthma

    Severe airflow obstruction may be predicted by accessory muscle use, pulsus paradoxus, refusal to recline below 30 , a pulse 120 beats/min, and decreased breath sounds.[doi.org] Extrathoracic respiratory signs should also be systematically looked for, including cyanosis, finger deformation, pulsus paradoxus, and pursed lips breathing.[erj.ersjournals.com] Pulsus paradoxus noted earlier may be absent; this finding suggests respiratory muscle fatigue.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Rationale: Studies evaluating corticosteroid (CS) dosing for patients hospitalized with an acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD) have largely excluded patients admitted directly to the intensive care unit (ICU), and none have evaluated the effect of CS dosing regimens on mortality.[…][doi.org]

  • Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

    Lymphoblastic lymphoma: high-grade lymphoma, which often manifests with a mediastinal mass, superior vena cava syndrome and meningeal disease with cranial nerve palsies.[patient.info] Mediastinal tumors may cause compression of the great vessels ( superior vena cava syndrome ), with swelling of the neck, face, and upper extremities.[emedicine.com]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    Growing tumors may place pressure on the superior vena cava, resulting in its obstruction and symptoms of superior vena cava syndrome.[pathwaymedicine.org] Symptoms of mediastinal invasion: • e.g. superior vena cava syndrome (dilated anterior chest wall veins).[slideshare.net]

  • Adenocarcinoma of the Breast

    Breast adenocarcinoma continues to be the most frequently diagnosed tumor entity. Despite established therapy options, mortality for breast cancer remains to be as high as 40,000 patients in the US annually. Thus, a need to develop a patient-oriented, targeted therapy exists. In this study, we investigated the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Arch Intern Med 153 (3): 384-7, 1993.[cancer.gov] vena cava syndrome, trouble swallowing, large amounts of mucus, weakness, fatigue, and hoarseness. [15] Cause [ edit ] Smoking is by far the leading risk factor for lung[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Small Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    Growth of the tumor can cause compression of the superior vena cava leading to superior vena cava syndrome, characterized by swelling of the face and upper limbs, cough and[pathologyoutlines.com] Indications are: pain due to chest mass, bone metastases or neural compression; haemoptysis; cough and dyspnoea due to local obstruction of airways; superior vena cava syndrome[annonc.oxfordjournals.org] vena cava syndrome Obstruction of superior vena cava by the tumour More common in SCLC (central tumour) 2-4% of lung cancer patients develop it at some point See Oncologic[pathophys.org]

  • Sarcoidosis

    All patients with suspected sarcoidosis should have a complete blood count (CBC), serum chemistries, including calcium, alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase[clinicaladvisor.com] Of these, the most common abnormalities include a mild anemia of chronic disease (4 to 20 percent of patients), leukopenia (up to 40 percent), an elevated alkaline phosphatase[clinicaladvisor.com]
