280 Possible Causes for Cyanosis, Red Nose

  • Malignant Carcinoid Syndrome

    Bronchoconstriction is usually intermittent and patients claim asthma attacks during which wheezing, dyspnea, cyanosis and tachycardia can be observed.[] […] right side of the heart (pulmonary stenosis and tricuspid regurgitation without septal defects), peripheral vasomotor symptoms, bronchoconstriction, and an unusual type of cyanosis[]

  • Raynaud Phenomenon

    When the blood vessels relax and blood flow resumes, the skin can turn red.[] Methemoglobinemia and sulfhemoglobinemia are rare causes of cyanosis that can be medication-induced. Both are known complications of therapy with phenazopyridine.[] These can either be triphasic (pallor, cyanosis, and hyperemia), biphasic (cyanosis and erythema), or uni-phasic (either pallor or cyanosis) in nature.[]

  • Raynaud's Disease

    Your hands, toes, nose and earlobes may turn white, blue or red due to fluctuations in blood flow.[] In some patients only pallor or cyanosis occurs.[] With Raynaud’s, the tips of the fingers or toes turn red, white, blue or purple. This may be accompanied by pain, numbness, or tingling.[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Air enters the lungs through the mouth and nose, traveling through the trachea (windpipe) into the bronchial tubes.[] In severe degrees of edema the breathing is that of suffocation, there is cyanosis, and there exudes or is expectorated from the mouth a thin serous frothy fluid often tinged[] The accumulation of fluids in the lungs fill in the air sacs and manifest externally dyspnea, chest pain, and cyanosis.[]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    Redness inside the nose and mouth. Pinkeye ( conjunctivitis ). Scaling, peeling skin, especially on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet.[] The symptoms usually appear shortly after birth and may include tachypnea, tachycardia, chest wall retractions (recession), expiratory grunting, nasal flaring and cyanosis[] The skin may become mottled or blue ( cyanosis ) because of low oxygen levels in the blood.[]

  • Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    Tell your child's pediatrician if his nose gets dry or if he has redness or sores on his skin.[] A condition of the newborn marked by dyspnea with cyanosis, heralded by such prodromal signs as dilatation of the alae nasi, expiratory grunt, and retraction of the suprasternal[] […] neonatal respiratory distress syndrome a condition of the newborn marked by dyspnea with cyanosis, preceded by symptoms such as dilatation of the nostrils, grunting on exhalation[]

  • Bronchiolitis

    When the machine is on, a small red light can be seen in the sensor. The sensor is painless and the red light does not get hot.[] Symptoms: Symptoms of bronchiolitis include cough, wheezing, cyanosis, fatigue, fever and rapid breathing.[] Cyanosis is caused by lack of oxygen. Pauses in breathing (apnea). Apnea is most likely to occur in premature infants and in infants within the first two months of life.[]

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away: nausea vomiting constipation diarrhea headache yawning runny nose weakness paleness flushing bone or[] In acute conditions, oxygen is given to the patient to reduce hypoxemia and to reverse cyanosis.[] Other signs on examination may include tachypnoea, cyanosis and also signs of cor pulmonale and right heart failure in the later stages.[]

  • Pulmonary Arteriovenous Malformation

    Both telangiectasias of the skin and nose have a tendency to become more numerous with increased age. However, not all red spots are telangiectasias.[] We report a 12-year-old girl who presented with exertional dyspnoea, cyanosis and clubbing since the age of five years, and multiple pulmonary arteriovenous malformations.[] His mother related a history of orthodeoxia with an increase in cyanosis when her infant is embraced and decrease in cyanosis when lying on the back.[]

  • Tetralogy of Fallot

    At the Winter X Games, Shaun wore an improvised red bandanna over his nose because he ran out of sunscreen. Now kids in Tokyo wear red bandannas too.[] Cyanosis is an important sign of tetralogy of Fallot. Cyanosis is a bluish tint to the skin, lips, and fingernails. Low oxygen levels in the blood cause cyanosis.[] This leads to cyanosis (a bluish-purple color to the skin).[]
