195 Possible Causes for Facial Swelling, Pituitary Adenoma

  • Acromegaly

    BACKGROUND: In more than 98% of cases, acromegaly is due to a GH-secreting pituitary adenoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This leads to coarse facial features, soft tissue swelling (including the tongue), enlargement of the hands and feet, respiratory problems, hypertension, diabetes mellitus[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms may include: swelling of the hands and feet facial features become coarse as bones grow body hair becomes coarse as the skin thickens and/or darkens increased perspiration[hopkinsmedicine.org]

  • Cushing Syndrome

    […] and treatment of pituitary adenomas should have far‐reaching benefits.[doi.org] This tumor, called a pituitary adenoma, is by far the most common tumor linked to Cushing’s syndrome.[web.archive.org] This tumor, called a pituitary adenoma, is by far the most common tumor linked to Cushing syndrome.[nichd.nih.gov]

  • Cushing's Disease

    On pituitary MRI with spoiled gradient recalled acquisition in the steady-state and T1-weighted spin echo protocols, a 5mm hypoenhancing region typical for a pituitary adenoma[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ., 04-141 Warszawa 44, Warsaw, Poland. gzielinski@wim.mil.pl Abstract Double pituitary adenomas are very rare and present up to 1 % of pituitary adenomas in unselected autopsy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSION: Ectopic pituitary adenoma tissue causing Cushing's disease is extremely rare but a potential cause for surgical failure or re-evaluation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    After the successful transsphenoidal resection of the pituitary adenoma, the level of GH was normalized.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] adenoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] juvenile acromegaly who was diagnosed with severe cardiac failure at the time of diagnosis and failed to recover cardiac function even after the successful resection of the pituitary[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Islet Cell Tumor

    It can be concluded that the pathogenesis of pituitary adenoma formation is primarily mediated by other factors than hypothalamic hormone.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient was a 41-year-old woman who had a past history of thyroid cancer (papillary carcinoma) and hyperparathyroidism due to parathyroid adenoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 下垂体〔性〕の pituitary adenoma下垂体腺腫 pituitary hormone下垂体ホルモン polyphagia (polyphagy)多食[症]、過食[症] polyuria多尿 posterior pituitary(neurohypophysis)下垂体後葉 postprandial blood glucose食後血糖[tokyo-med.ac.jp]

  • Gigantism

    AIP mutations are rare in sporadic acromegaly but they are seen at a higher frequency among certain specific populations of pituitary adenoma patients (pituitary gigantism[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When GH hypersecretion begins after epiphyseal closure, the earliest clinical manifestations are coarsening of the facial features and soft-tissue swelling of the hands and[merckmanuals.com] Other symptoms, like increasingly apparent facial features (thickened lips and protruding brows, for example), don’t appear until the diseases have progressed.[medicaldaily.com]

  • Hypopituitarism

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of the pituitary function of 90 patients who underwent GKRS for pituitary adenoma at the University Hospital Centre[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other symptoms and signs include weakness , headache , abdominal pain , low blood pressure , vision problems, facial swelling, hoarseness , joint stiffness , and loss of pubic[medicinenet.com] Additional symptoms that may be associated with this disease: Weight gain (unintentional) Joint stiffness Hoarseness or changing voice Hair loss Facial swelling Signs and[uclahealth.org]

  • Pituitary Adenoma

    […] cells in the pituitary gland gives rise to the condition known as pituitary adenomas.[symptoma.com] (soft tissue enlargement) coarsening of facial features change in ring or shoe size spreading teeth, bite difficulties (overbite/underbite) Bell's palsy (facial paralysis[pituitary.mgh.harvard.edu] The person's facial features become coarse, and the hands and feet swell. Larger rings, gloves, shoes, and hats are needed.[merck.com]

  • Functioning Gonadotropic Adenoma

    Pituitary adenomas are tumors that occur in the pituitary gland.[en.wikipedia.org] Ask whether the patient or their family have noticed any change in their facial appearance.[endobible.com] Nonfunctional pituitary adenomas do not secrete hormones.[innerbody.com]

  • T-Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma

    adenoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The latter comprises distension of neck veins and raised jugular venous pressure as well as facial edema.[symptoma.com] Radiologically, these findings were thought to represent an invasive pituitary adenoma. Pterional craniotomy was performed with subtotal tumor resection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
