559 Possible Causes for Fever, Pleurisy, Tachycardia

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Pulmonary embolism (PE) represents a clinical challenge for clinicians because of nonspecific presentations, including dyspnea, chest pain, and tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It can mimic pneumonia, congestive heart failure, and a viral illness known as pleurisy.[vascularcures.org] High grade fever is a rare presentation of thromboembolic phenomenon. A middle aged woman presented with high grade fevers.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumonia

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Bidirectional ventricular tachycardia (BVT) is a rare ventricular tachyarrhythmia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) is a rare but lethal multisystem disease characterized by peripheral thrombocytopenia, microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, fever,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Signs Cardiovascular examination findings can vary enormously: Low-grade fever, pale and cool, clammy skin.[patient.info]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    […] pregnancy and older age Small infarcts usually have minimal symptoms; if bronchial circulation is inadequate (so reduced collateral circulation), then have shortness of breath, tachycardia[pathologyoutlines.com] […] of PE-related fever are similar to postoperative fever.[circ.ahajournals.org] . - Overlying pleura shows patches of fibrinous pleurisy due to irritation. - With time the center of the infarct becomes brown and eventually pale as the hemorrhage breaks[histopathology-india.net]

  • Acute Pancreatitis

    […] pain Classically radiating towards the back Worse after meals and when supine Improves on leaning forwards Nausea, vomiting General physical examination Signs of shock : tachycardia[amboss.com] This is a very infrequently reported complication of dengue hemorrhagic fever.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The differential diagnosis includes: Perforated peptic ulcer Biliary colic Acute cholecystitis Pneumonia Pleuritic pain Myocardial infarction Elevated serum amylase and lipase[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    One week after admission, she developed fever, dyspnea, hypoxemia, tachycardia, and increased serum C-reactive protein level.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is the most common hereditary auto-inflammatory (periodic fever) syndrome, and usually successfully treated with colchicine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] variety of symptoms, including: general weakness or a feeling of malaise dry mouth dry, itchy, or inflamed eyes eye discharge difficulty sleeping chest pain when you breathe ( pleurisy[healthline.com]

  • Pericarditis

    BACKGROUND: Pericardial adhesions can prevent epicardial access and restrict catheter movement during mapping and ablation of ventricular tachycardia (VT).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The pain is typically relieved by leaning forwards The differentials for this type of pain are basically pleurisy and pericarditis Fever – a low grade fever may be present[almostadoctor.co.uk] […] previously healthy 71-year-old immunocompetent woman from Arizona who presented with a 5-day history of progressive shortness of breath and chest tightness, and subjective fever[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Pericarditis

    On physical examination, she had tachycardia, hepatomegaly, and muffled heart sounds.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This pericarditis is due to dengue fever.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The pain is typically relieved by leaning forwards The differentials for this type of pain are basically pleurisy and pericarditis Fever – a low grade fever may be present[almostadoctor.co.uk]

  • Dressler Syndrome

    Dressler beat - presence of Dressler beats strongly supporting the diagnosis of ventricular tachycardia by interruption of it.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Complications Pleuritic pain may be associated with pleurisy and pleural effusion . Significant pericardial effusion can cause cardiac tamponade .[patient.info] […] thallium-201 perfusion studies enabled a retroactive diagnosis of myocardial infarction, showed it to be in the right ventricle, and clarified the aetiology of the unexplained fever[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Legionnaires' Disease

    On admission, he was febrile, toxic looking, dehydrated with hypotension and tachycardia. No clinical signs of respiratory infection were detected on admission.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A milder infection, also caused by Legionella, is called Pontiac fever.[web.archive.org] Coughing, shortness of breath, pleurisy -like pain, and abdominal distress are common, and occasionally some mental confusion is present.[web.archive.org]
