609 Possible Causes for Cough, Endocarditis, Rheumatic Heart Disease

  • Heart Failure

    A 23-month-old girl visited the emergency department with high fever, cough, first wheezing episode, chest retraction and tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Your opinion or preference If heart failure is caused by a congenital (present at birth) heart defect or an acquired heart problem such as rheumatic valve disease, surgical[stanfordchildrens.org] Our case illustrated the CardioMEMS-assisted early diagnosis of infective endocarditis prior to clinical deterioration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    The patient's cough and shortness of breath were slightly relieved. He still experienced pleural effusion and had symptoms of cough and shortness of breath.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] thromboembolism, migratory superficial thrombophlebitis, arterial thrombosis, disseminated intravascular coagulation, thrombotic microangiopathy and rarely non-bacterial thrombotic endocarditis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Alternative diagnoses for culture-negative endocarditis were considered, and a full set of rheumatological workup was done.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mitral Valve Stenosis

    […] or having trouble breathing Heart palpitations (irregular, pounding or skipped heartbeats) Fatigue Coughing, possibly with blood in the mucous that is coughed up Swollen[rush.edu] In addition she had severe aortic stenosis with mild to moderate aortic valve regurgitation, which was thought to be rheumatic heart disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There are only 15 reported cases in the literature of mitral prosthetic valve bacterial endocarditis causing stenosis by obstruction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rheumatic Fever

    Abstract We present a case of heterogeneous and strongly increased myocardial and valvular 18F-FDG uptake on 18F-FDG PET/CT in an HIV-positive patient with productive cough[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] November 2001 to update the WHO Technical Report 764 on Rheumatic Fever and Rheumatic Heart Disease.[web.archive.org] Pediatric Cardiology, 29, 619-623. [ 3 ] Brusch, J.L. (2007) Infective Endocarditis and Its Mimics in the Critical Care Unit.[dx.doi.org]

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease

    She coughed throughout the day. Her heart – weakened and scarred from an infection – could not effectively pump blood to the rest of her body.[pih.org] Rheumatic heart disease refers to a group of heart disorders that develop as a complication of rheumatic fever.[symptoma.com] Rheumatic myocarditis and endocarditis and old rheumatic mitral valve deformities were also present.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Infective Endocarditis

    […] involvement is very uncommon - only about 0.01-2% of all cases.4,5 In most cases, the cysts develop asymptomatically, but heart cysts could manifest with chest pain, dyspnea, cough[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Rheumatic heart disease was the commonest (30.9%) underlying cardiac lesion followed by mitral valve prolapse with mitral regurgitation (23.7%), degenerative valvular disease[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The aim of this fact sheet is to provide information and advice on infective endocarditis. What is infective endocarditis?[chfed.org.uk]

  • Mitral Valve Insufficiency

    Abstract Mitral valve insufficiency in rheumatic heart disease is often due to retracted posterior chordae and posterior leaflet thickening.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In acute endocarditis, the first aim of the surgeon is debridement of all the infected tissue.[scielo.br] Symptoms of mitral valve stenosis may include: Shortness of breath Cough due to fluid on the lungs (pulmonary edema) A rapid, fluttering heartbeat (palpitations) Dizziness[heartvalvedisease.nm.org]

  • Bacterial Endocarditis

    Other symptoms include a cough, skin changes, and swelling in the arms, legs, or abdomen. Bacterial endocarditis is treated with antibiotics.[urmc.rochester.edu] Previously, the main risk factor for IE was rheumatic heart disease, but research has since shown that other risk factors have gained prominence, including injection drug[sharecare.com] The presentation of bacterial endocarditis is classified as subacute or acute.[symptoma.com]

  • Endocarditis

    […] department of Peking Union Medical College Hospital (Beijing) in August 2013, with a 7-week history of fevers, chills, sore throat, muscular soreness, occasional joint pain, and cough[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Previously, the main risk factor for IE was rheumatic heart disease, but research has since shown that other risk factors have gained prominence, including injection drug[sharecare.com] Another type of endocarditis known as native valve endocarditis (NVP) also occurs post surgery.[symptoma.com]

  • Right Heart Endocarditis

    A 23-year-old woman comes to the hospital due to fever, chills, dyspnea, and cough for the past several days.[quizlet.com] It is less encountered due to lower rates of congenital and rheumatic heart disease affecting right side valves, lower right heart pressure and reduced stress to tricuspid[scopemed.org] Right heart endocarditis makes up 5-10% of all infective endocarditis involving valvular, congenital and artificial structures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
