Critical illnesses and debilitated patients. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).[healthhype.com] An 80-year-old man was admitted to the hospital with recurrent right-sided aspiration pneumonia, found on barium swallow to be due to diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Wolf Hirschhorn Syndrome

    About one third die within the first two years of life, usually due to a heart defect, aspiration pneumonia, other severe infection or resulting from a seizure.[patient.info] We present a 5-year-old girl with severe delay in growth and development, microcephaly, mild facial dismorphy and epilepsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome is defined by a collection of core characteristics that include mental retardation, epilepsy, growth delay, and craniofacial dysgenesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy Type 2

    Pneumonia or recurrent pneumonias are a frequent, often unrecognized, sign of aspiration.[medicalhomeportal.org] The text also describes the neuropathological findings and classification; progressive encephalopathies; and epilepsy.

  • Wolfram Syndrome

    Life-threatening complications, including central apnea (due to bulbar dysfunction) are frequent and may lead to recurrent aspiration pneumonia.[orpha.net] All four of the cases described developed grand mal epilepsy in their second and third decades. Two of the cases developed progressive ataxia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Additional neurologic manifestations include truncal ataxia, myoclonus, epilepsy, nystagmus, and hyposmia.(1,2.)[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
