1,784 Possible Causes for Dysphagia, Scoliosis

  • Tuberculosis

    Tuberculous (TB) oesophagitis is a rare manifestation of dysphagia occurring in 0.3% of all gastro-intestinal tract TB infections as well as 0.15% of all cases of dysphagia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe a rare presentation of a patient with grade IV dysphagia due to an oesophageal stricture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There needs to be an increased index of suspicion among patients with dysphagia in TB endemic regions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    This case series highlights important surgical strategies that can be utilized to treat scoliosis in patients with SMA.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Dysphagia may be present. Most children are confined to a wheelchair by age 2 to 3 yr.[merckmanuals.com] Patients with SMA also have significant difficulty with physical activities such as walking, crawling, and I coordination, neck and had control and dysphagia ( trouble swallowing[stemcellthailand.org]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    He had a bifid uvula, bilaterally duplicated thumbs and scoliosis. Additionally, he had hypertelorism, a wide forehead and flattening of mid-face.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We screened 30 patients by using the 10-item DYsphagia in MUltiple Sclerosis (DYMUS) questionnaire, and patients at risk for dysphagia underwent a clinical and fiberoptic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The Dysphagia in Multiple Sclerosis (DYMUS) questionnaire is the first dysphagia questionnaire developed specifically for patients with MS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    The natural history of scoliosis, respiratory function and walking ability in UCMD patients were characterised.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mechanical insufflation-exsufflation (MI-E) interventions were also employed in six patients with serious dysphagia and were well-tolerated in all cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Complications from dysphagia.[neurology.org]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1

    Scoliosis occurs as a child with type 2 grows and gets bigger. There is no specific life span.[stopsma.org] Feeding problems and dysphagia are common, but the underlying mechanisms of these problems are not well defined.[smartspeechtherapy.com] Kids with SMA can develop scoliosis (a curved spine) if the back muscles are weak.[kidshealth.org]

  • Poliomyelitis

    Owing to unequal muscle tension joints can become distorted, scoliosis and other deformations.[paravan.de] The classical symptoms of this third stage include hyper- or hypotension, respiratory failure, dysphagia and dysphonia.[symptoma.com] In two percent of paralytic cases, infection damages cranial nerves and the reticular formation in the brain stem resulting in a variety of problems: inability to spit, dysphagia[microbewiki.kenyon.edu]

  • Arnold Chiari Malformation

    Common associated radiological problems included syringomyelia (60%), scoliosis (25%), and basilarinvagination (12%), increased cervical lordosis 5 (8.5%), and Klippel Feil[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The most important mechanism of recurrent aspiration pneumonia was dysphagia[ 14 ].[mrmjournal.biomedcentral.com] […] diagnosis has not kept me from experiencing several chronic conditions including Arnold Chiari malformation , an aortic aneurysm, several skeletal issues(fused bones and scoliosis[globalgenes.org]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

Mol Genet Metab, 2011. 104(4): p. 574-82.[rarediseases.org] Oropharyngeal dysphagia in infants and children with infantile Pompe disease. Dysphagia . 2009 Sep 10. [Medline] .

  • Osteoporosis

    (H673fs)) in a 15-year-old patient whose SATB2-associated syndrome phenotype is accompanied by osteoporosis, fractures, progressive tibial bowing, and scoliosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Caution often is advised for people with dysphagia (trouble swallowing) because the dysphagia may be a manifestation of a problem in the esophagus that will cause the bisphosphonate[medicinenet.com] His scoliosis remains stable, but a minor progression of kyphosis has been noted in the last year.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Syringomyelia

    However, a subset of CMI patients with scoliosis may not have a concomitant syrinx. Scoliosis in these patients has been very poorly documented in the literature.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Figure 1 A 24-year-old man had a three-year history of progressive muscle wasting and sensory loss in his arms, dysphonia, and dysphagia.[nejm.org] Patient 2 was a 49-year-old man, who was admitted to the hospital with headache, diplopia, hoarseness, dysphagia and ataxia five months after SAH.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
