34 Possible Causes for Discoloration of the Lower Extremity, Gangrene, Pulmonary Infarction

  • Phlegmasia Cerulea Dolens

    PE should be distinguished from pulmonary infarction.[web.archive.org] OBJECTIVE: Phlegmasia cerulea dolens (PCD) and venous gangrene are limb and life-threatening conditions of iliofemoral acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient returned to the Emergency Department a week later for worsening pain and bluish discoloration of her bilateral lower extremities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Deep Vein Thrombosis

  • Thrombosis

    The condition is often detected after complications such as myocardial infarction, pulmonary embolism, and stroke.[symptoma.com] Examinations after death have shown that thrombosis exists for some distance around the gangrenous mass.[thesaurus.com] Patients with venous thrombosis may have variable discoloration of the lower extremity.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Raynaud's Disease

    However, pulmonary events have rarely been reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of the toes Gangrene of the fingertips Extreme constriction of blood vessels (peripheral) Tissue hypoxia Skin, muscle, and tissue atrophy Ulceration Ischemic gangrene Raynaud[disability-benefits-help.org] An examination revealed venous changes, chronic ulceration, and digit discoloration in upper and lower extremities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Phlegmasia Alba Dolens

    In the few patients of this kind whom I have seen, pulmonary infarctions have been rather common.[kundoc.com] Ischemia with progression to gangrene are potential consequences.[en.wikipedia.org] PCD is the term used to describe lower-extremity DVT that causes limb ischemia, and is characterized by severe swelling and blue discoloration of the extremity.[ebmedicine.net]

  • Paraplegia

    The authors present a case of delayed-onset spinal cord infarction after repeated tumor excision surgeries of the thoracic spine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In addition, gangrene was observed in both ear helices, both index fingers, and several toes.[ekjm.org] A 49-year-old man had undergone a left nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma, 2 pulmonary metastasectomies, and excision of a left sixth rib metastasis before referral to the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Venous Thrombosis

    This increases the likelihood of the thrombus becoming lodged in these vessels, thus causing a potentially fatal pulmonary embolism, pulmonary infarction or chronic thromboembolic[symptoma.com] Although surgery may be required when venous gangrene of the intestine occurs, early diagnosis may allow successful conservative management with anticoagulation.[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com] […] of the lower extremity Blanched appearance of the leg because of edema (relatively rare) Potential complications of DVT include the following: As many as 40% of patients[edu.lom.hr]

  • Thromboangiitis Obliterans

  • Calcinosis Cutis

    Patients may develop cardiac valve or electrical conduction dysfunction, myocardial, pulmonary, or cerebrovascular infarction ( 80, 81 ), myositis, muscle weakness, and bowel[cjasn.asnjournals.org] In very rare cases, Calcinosis Cutis can cause gangrene due to blockage of blood flow.[epainassist.com] […] especially when there is secondary or tertiary hyperparathyroidism Painful violaceous lesions, most common on the trunk and extremities, which may progress to form ulcers and gangrene[dermpedia.org]

  • Cryoglobulinemia

    […] abdominal pain, general malaise, fever, and/or bloody bowel movements; vasculitis-driven pulmonary disturbances (e.g., coughing up blood, acute respiratory failure, X-ray[en.wikipedia.org] The development of gangrene after elective digital surgery is a rare complication.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She presented with generalized purplish net-like discoloration (livedo reticularis), which was more prominent in the lower extremities.[dbpia.co.kr]
