5,197 Possible Causes for Edema, Hypotension

  • Influenza

    The older child recovered fully and was discharged 2 weeks after illness onset, but the younger sibling developed severe brainstem edema and cerebellar tonsillar herniation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There can also be tachycardia and dyspnea but with hypotension. Vomiting and diarrhea may also occur, but are rare findings associated with the disorder.[symptoma.com]

  • Pneumonia

    In addition, the accumulation of plasma proteins results in a fluid build-up in the lungs, called pulmonary edema.[bumc.bu.edu] Consider administering IV fluids to suspected pneumonia patients who are hypotensive, feel weak, have dry mucus membranes or poor skin turgor. 3.[ems1.com] Fluid management is critical to minimize the risk of pulmonary edema.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Both twins developed late-onset adrenal insufficiency with oliguria, hypotension, hyponatremia, and pulmonary edema at a postnatal age of 24 days and 51 days, respectively[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Unexplained hypotension may be a manifestation of an adrenal insufficient state in patients with a history of corticosteroid therapy on hemodialysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 65-year-old male with liver cirrhosis of alcoholic etiology was admitted to hospital with bilateral leg edema, ascites, and marked weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Insect Bite

    Vesicular lesions were characterized by marked spongiosis and intraepidermal spongiotic vesicles containing eosinophils, or marked subepidermal edema occasionally leading[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] cell sensitization, an insect bite may trigger a type I hypersensitivity reaction manifesting in severe urticaria, pruritus, vomiting, respiratory symptoms, tachycardia, hypotension[symptoma.com] The histopathology ranges from a typical bite-like reaction to massive dermal edema and eosinophil degranulation with flame figures (Wells syndrome).[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Patulous Eustachian Tube

    Estrogen (Premarin) nasal drops or saturated potassium iodide have been used to induce edema of the eustachian tube opening.[en.wikipedia.org] A 48-year-old slender woman presented with a rare case of spontaneous intracranial hypotension syndrome manifesting as patulous Eustachian tube.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Infection of static fluid causes edema and release of inflammatory mediators, exacerbating the cycle of inflammation and obstruction.[unboundmedicine.com]

  • Streptococcal Infection

    Magnetic resonance imaging showed diffuse symmetrical swelling and edema of the cerebellum resulting in compression of the fourth ventricle and hydrocephalus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The characteristics of an invasive streptococcal disease include systemic toxicity, hypotension, shock, multiple organ failure, rapid necrosis, and gangrene.[symptoma.com] Hypotension: systolic blood pressure 90 mm Hg or lower in adults or lower than the 5% percentile for age in children B.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Skin Infection

    […] of the upper airways or skin is a kidney disease usually caused by streptococcal nephritogenic strains and may present with sudden onset of gross hematuria, hypertension, edema[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Moderate to severe skin infections may thus be associated with fever, chills, hypotension and tachycardia.[symptoma.com] Redness, heat, edema, and streaking lymphangitis are hallmarks of the more acute, toxic forms of streptococcal skin and wound infections.[atsu.edu]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    All clinicians evaluating a "sore throat" should consider neck edema or gas on neck radiograms as evidence of cervical abscess, and subsequent widening of the mediastinum[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The risk of mortality is significant in patients who progress to streptococcal toxic shock syndrome, which is characterized by multiorgan failure and hypotension.[emedicine.medscape.com] In persons with diphtheria, submandibular and anterior cervical edema may be present along with adenopathy.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Pharyngitis

    Laryngeal fiberscopy revealed bilateral vocal cords almost fixed at the median position, with mucosal redness, swelling, and edema at the hypopharyngeal area.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, hypoxemia, hypotension and\or significant tachypnea are not and suggests another process may be present.[cdemcurriculum.com] The edema is most pronounced in the head and neck. Epiglottitis causes fever, difficulty swallowing, drooling, and stridor.[aafp.org]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Peripheral edema: Edema develops in the feet in ambulatory patients and sacral edema in bed bound patients.[symptoma.com] After cardioversion, refractory hypotension and cardiopulmonary arrest occurred. An arterial blood gas analysis showed marked lactic acidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, the patient's renal function and hyperkalemia worsened, and the blood eosinophil count increased without signs of dehydration or hypotension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
