144 Possible Causes for Cough, Thickening of the Mitral Valve Leaflets

  • 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] Mitral stenosis is characterized by thickening and immobility of the mitral valve leaflets.[symptoma.com] In severe cases, fluid can build up in the lungs, leading to coughing and breathing problems.[fairview.org]

  • Streptococcal Infection

    Different types of streptococcal bacteria are spread in different ways including coughing or sneezing, through contact with infected wounds or sores, or during vaginal delivery[netdoctor.co.uk] Chronic rheumatic heart disease mostly affects the mitral valve, which can become thickened with calcification of the leaflets, often causing fusion of the commissures and[en.wikipedia.org] Wash your hands especially after coughing or sneezing and before preparing foods or eating. Coughs and sneezes should be covered. All wounds should be kept clean.[simcoemuskokahealth.org]

  • Mitral Valve Insufficiency

    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] Abstract Mitral valve insufficiency in rheumatic heart disease is often due to retracted posterior chordae and posterior leaflet thickening.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This may produce symptoms ranging from shortness of breath during exertion, coughing, congestion around the heart and lungs, swelling of the legs and feet.[heart.org]

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease

    Echocardiography evaluation showed thickened aortic and mitral valve leaflets with mild to moderate degree of mitral regurgitation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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] The mitral valve can be thickened, calcified, have restricted movement and the mitral valve leaflets fused together. The aortic valve may also be thickened.[myheart.net]

  • Infective Endocarditis

    […] history of endocarditis history of illegal drug use mitral valve prolapse and valve regurgitation (leaking) and/or thickened valve leaflets The risk of infective endocarditis[healthline.com] […] 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] Along with the general symptoms of infective endocarditis, there may be coughing or pain in the chest, abdomen, fingers and toes.[rarediseases.org]

  • Congenital Mitral Stenosis

    […] double-orifice mitral valve permits adult survival when the mitral apparatus functions normally or is purely regurgitant. 5, 14 Orthopnea, dyspnea, tachypnea, and paroxysmal cough[clinicalgate.com] Definition (CSP) rheumatic disease causing diffuse thickening of the mitral valve leaflets by fibrous tissue or calcific deposits.[fpnotebook.com] Mitral Stenosis Symptoms Symptoms of mitral valve stenosis can include: Coughing up of blood Fatigue Fluid retention and swelling in the legs and abdomen (symptoms of right-sided[utswmedicine.org]

  • Bacterial Endocarditis

    Other symptoms include a cough, skin changes, and swelling in the arms, legs, or abdomen.

You passed out. You have symptoms of a stroke.[myhealth.alberta.ca]

  • Mitral Valve Prolapse

    Two days before hospitalisation he developed fever, cough, shortness of breath. He had past history of such episode.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Two groups of patients were compared: those with thickening of the mitral-valve leaflets and redundancy (designated the classic form; n 319) and those without leaflet thickening[oadoi.org] This can cause Palpitations (feelings that your heart is skipping a beat, fluttering, or beating too hard or too fast) Shortness of breath Cough Fatigue, dizziness, or anxiety[medlineplus.gov]

  • Fabry Disease

    Other organs and systems: widespread involvement produces many other manifestations of the disease, including cough, breathlessness, wheeze, etc.[patient.info] […] without significant luminal occlusion. c Section through the mitral valve apparatus demonstrating mild mitral valve leaflet thickening and ballooning of the anterior and[doi.org] Effects: Common side effects reported in 20% or more of Fabrazyme treated patients in clinical studies compared to placebo were upper respiratory tract infection, headache, cough[fabrazyme.com]

  • Rheumatic Fever

    […] regurgitation and/or significant aortic regurgitation AND a thickened mitral valve and/or elbow deformity of the anterior mitral leaflet Probable Comes from a population[doi.org] 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] So remember when coughing and sneezing cover your mouth and wash and dry your hands often, especially after coughing and sneezing.[health.govt.nz]
