  • Esophagitis

    […] stasis caused by severe motility disorders such as scleroderma and achalasia.[radiopaedia.org] Chest pain may be relieved with nitrates if esophageal spasm is involved, further confounding the diagnostic evaluation.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] separated by normal mucosa and small ( It occurs as an opportunistic infection in immunocompromised patients, particularly those with AIDS, but it can also result from local esophageal[radiopaedia.org]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    The concept of "structural plasticity" has emerged as a potential mechanism in neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases such as drug abuse, depression, and dementia. Chronic alcoholism is a progressive neurodegenerative disease while the person continues to abuse alcohol, though clinical and imaging studies show[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Raynaud's Disease

    Abstract Raynaud's disease is a peripheral vascular system disorder characterized by episodes of vasoconstriction in the hands and feet resulting in a lowering of skin temperature and pain. Recent studies are reviewed that focus on the behavioral treatment of Raynaud's disease--in particular, biofeedback and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Lipodystrophies are a group of heterogeneous disorders characterized by varying degrees of body fat loss and predisposition to insulin resistance and its metabolic complications. Lipodystrophy associated metabolic abnormalities include insulin resistance, that often lead to diabetes mellitus and its complications,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Depression

    A depression in geology is a landform sunken or depressed below the surrounding area. Depressions form by various mechanisms. Erosion-related: Blowout: a depression created by wind erosion typically in either a partially vegetated sand dune ecosystem or dry soils (such as a post-glacial loess environment). Glacial[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy

    (disordered peristalsis, abnormal lower esophageal sphincter function) Gastroparesis diabeticorum (nonobstructive impairment of gastric propulsive activity; brady/tachygastria[care.diabetesjournals.org] , pylorospasm) Diarrhea (impaired motility of the small bowel [bacterial overgrowth syndrome], increased motility and secretory activity [pseudocholeretic diarrhea]) Constipation[care.diabetesjournals.org] GI manifestations of DAN are diverse, and symptoms and pathogenic mechanisms have been categorized according to which section of the GI tract is affected: Esophageal enteropathy[care.diabetesjournals.org]

  • Stroke

    Your doctor will diagnose a stroke based on your signs and symptoms, your medical history, a physical exam, and test results. Your doctor will want to find out the type of stroke you’ve had, its cause, the part of the brain that's affected, and whether you have bleeding in the brain.

  • Endogenous Depression

    Abstract We assessed the 8:00 AM ratio of free cortisol/18-hydroxy-11-deoxycorticosterone (18-OH-DOC) in 56 endogenous depressive inpatients and in 22 normal volunteers. A ratio higher than 40 was associated with a diagnostic sensitivity for endogenous depression of 75%, a specificity of 95.5%, and a diagnostic[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
