382 Possible Causes for Ectopia Lentis, Sudden Death, X-Ray Abnormal

  • Marfan Syndrome

    We present a case of Marfan syndrome with lens coloboma in one eye and ectopia lentis in the other. A 14-year-old girl reported decreased vision in the left eye.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These aneurysms upon rupture may lead to sudden deaths.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Diagnosis Clinical criteria Genetic testing Echocardiography/MRI (measurement of the aortic root, detection of valve prolapse) Slit-lamp examination (lens abnormalities) X-rays[merckmanuals.com]

  • Mesenteric Cyst

    Comparison of 20 patients from North America with patients from Hawaii and Japan. ‎ 896 ページ - Genetic linkage of the Marfan syndrome, ectopia lentis, and congenital contractural[books.google.com] Two cases of sudden death in young female children due to small intestinal volvulus are reported, which involved a mesenteric defect and a mesenteric cyst.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A plain abdominal X-ray film revealed displacement of colonic gas from the right lower abdomen, and abdominal ultrasonography and computed tomography revealed a smooth cystic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aortic Disease

    lentis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sudden death that seems "heart related" may sometimes actually have been caused by thoracic aortic disease.[bicuspidfoundation.com] On an infrequent basis additional diagnostic tests such as venogram (injection of dye into the vein supplemented by X-ray imaging), or CT-scanning are required.[vasc-solutions.com]

  • Mesenteric Infarction

    Ocular abnormalities are microcornea, corneal opacification, corectopia, ectopia lentis, aniridia, cataract, persistent fetal vasculature and/or retinal dysplasia.[eyewiki.aao.org] Over a mean of 15.3 months, no recurrent micturition syncope or sudden death occurred in the entire group.[jamanetwork.com] Plain abdominal X-ray may show abnormal segment outlined with gas. However, the findings may be nonspecific for 12-18 hours after onset.[patient.info]

  • Primary Cardiac Sarcoma

    lentis[L] 【辺縁角膜炎】*marginal keratitis 【変形細胞症】*poikilocytosis 変形赤血球症 【変形性骨炎】*osteitis deformans[L]/*ostitis deformans[L] 【変形性骨関節炎】*osteoarthritis deformans[L] 【変形性膝関節症】*gonarthrosis[medo.jp] The pathogenesis of this sudden infant death was postulated as being owing to a fatal ventricular fibrillation combined with a tumor-related restrictive cardiomyopathy obstructing[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This is like an x-ray, but this procedure will provide us with more details than X-ray because it can reveal the abnormal portion of the bone.[cancerwall.com]

  • Intestinal Infarction

    الصفحة 896 - Genetic linkage of the Marfan syndrome, ectopia lentis, and congenital contractural arachnodactyly to the fibrillin genes on chromosomes 15 and 5.[books.google.com] A case of sudden death due to massive small intestinal infarction is reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A CT scan (special x-ray) of the abdomen may show abnormalities of the intestine. An angiogram may be obtained.[webmd.com]

  • Mitral Valve Prolapse

    The overlapping and more common mitral valve prolapse syndrome is precluded by ectopia lentis or aortic dilatation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As a consequence, sudden death might occur in these patients, thought to be caused by an arrhythmogenic event.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The physician injects a contrast solution into the artery and takes X-rays to check for blockage and other abnormalities.[wexnermedical.osu.edu]

  • Stroke

    Patients have a marfanoid habitus, ectopia lentis, and myopia and generally have intellectual disability. [29] Thromboembolic events are the most common cause of death for[emedicine.com] A very severe stroke can cause sudden death.[who.int] Routine Screening Tests Chest x-ray (CXR) An x-ray of the heart and lungs is a standard test for patients with acute medical problems.[strokecenter.org]

  • Aortic Dissection

    Ocular features An important distinguishing feature between LDS and MFS is the lack of ectopia lentis in LDS ( 28 ).[dx.doi.org] We report sudden death in a patient diagnosed with AAAD and in whom critical care ultrasound highly indicated hemorrhagic cardiac tamponade.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] findings on chest X-ray.[medicinenet.com]

  • Duodenal Stenosis

    Seite 896 - Genetic linkage of the Marfan syndrome, ectopia lentis, and congenital contractural arachnodactyly to the fibrillin genes on chromosomes 15 and 5.[books.google.de] Fetal duodenal obstructions: increased risk of prenatal sudden death. Ultrasound Obstet Gynecol 2002; 20: 439[fetalultrasound.com] Anal examination was very painful, but no abnormalities were palpable. Laboratory and faeces examination as well as abdominal and chest X-rays revealed no abnormalities.[link.springer.com]
