212 Possible Causes for Exertional Dyspnea, Immunodeficiency Is Progressive

  • Acute Bronchitis

    […] on exertion wheezing, rhonchi, or other signs of obstruction may have accompanying URI symptoms (for example, fever, sore throat, nasal congestion, runny nose) Past medical[] These patients need careful periodic monitoring to minimize further lung damage and progression to chronic irreversible lung disease.[] CHF Patients with CHF may cough but also have other symptoms and signs such as dyspnea on exertion, orthopnea, rales on lung examination, peripheral edema, raised jugular[]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    Appropriate antimicrobial therapy and close follow-up may be appropriate, because a simple URI may quickly progress to a systemic illness in immunocompromised patients.[] Lack of a spleen: Lowers resistance to infection with encapsulated bacteria HIV infection Cancer or cancer therapy Dialysis Stem cell or organ transplantation Congenital immunodeficiency[]

    Here we present an 80-year-old Asian woman complaining of progressive exertional dyspnea.[] […] virus (HIV)–associated cardiomyopathy generally progresses to death within 100 days of diagnosis in patients who are not treated with antiretroviral drugs.[] dyspnea The principal difference between exertional dyspnea in patients who are healthy and exertional dyspnea in patients with heart failure is the degree of activity necessary[]

  • Pneumonia

    She was emergently admitted to our hospital due to the worsening exertional dyspnea and severe hypoxemia.[] Common symptoms of PCP include progressive shortness of breath, nonproductive cough, and low‐grade fever.[] The main symptoms usually include exertional dyspnea, dry cough, and subfebrile temperature or fever. Lactate dehydrogenase may be elevated.[]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    A 51-yr-old man presented exertional dyspnea as a consequence of iliocaval fistula combined with paradoxical pulmonary embolism and high-output heart failure.[] […] virus (HIV)–associated cardiomyopathy generally progresses to death within 100 days of diagnosis in patients who are not treated with antiretroviral drugs.[] A 64-year-old woman was admitted with systemic edema and exertional dyspnea.[]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    A 71-year-old man developed exertional dyspnea and was diagnosed with IPF.[] […] with mice receiving fibroblasts from slowly progressing patients.[] A man in his mid-60's with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and hepatitis B-related liver cirrhosis developed exertional dyspnea and a dry cough lasting for three months.[]

  • Lymphocytic Interstitial Pneumonia

    Exertional dyspnea, x-ray infiltrates, and pulmonary physiologic abnormalities decreased or increased during 3 1/2 years of follow-up in parallel with the administered dose[] Lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia is a rare, slowly progressive pulmonary disorder associated with autoimmune diseases, dysgammaglobulinemia, human immunodeficiency virus[] Chest radiograph of lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia in an adult who is HIV positive and has exertional dyspnea, demonstrating characteristic fine bibasilar interstitial[]

  • Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma

    (fatigue, dyspnea on exertion); (2) arrhythmias and/or conduction system disease; (3) thromboembolic disease (from left ventricular mural thrombus) including stroke.[] Possible causes The cause remains unknown; however, can be a progression from other CLL/SLL. Underlying immunodeficiency may be a risk factor as well as EBV.[] The initial therapy and therapeutic response, details of remission, progression, or relapse, and subsequent therapies and follow-up were tabulated in each case.[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis
