37 Possible Causes for Goiter, Increased Jugular Venous Pressure

  • Hereditary ATTR Amyloidosis

    Rarely: Kidneys Thyroid gland Adrenal glands Blood vessels Local symptoms related to the organ affected: blurred vision, blindness, protein loss in the urine, kidney failure, goiter[]

  • Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma

    General physical examination was remarkable for increased jugular venous pressure and enlarged cervical lymph nodes.[] We present a case report of a 55-year-old male with colloid goiter who presented with a recent increase in his long-standing anterior neck swelling.[] History of presenting illness revealed that the neck swelling was present for 14 years and diagnosed previously as colloid goiter by fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC)[]

  • Cardiomegaly

    venous congestion related to congestive cardiac failure results in increased jugular venous pressure [1] Cardiomegaly [3] [7] As a result of enlargement of the heart, the[] Overproduction of the thyroid hormone leads to most thyroid disorders such as goiter, which is the enlargement of a gland.[] […] congestion related to congestive cardiac failure results in increased jugular venous pressure [1] Ascitis [1] [3] This is due to increased fluid accumulation which occurs[]

  • Superior Vena Cava Syndrome

    Zoom Symptoms The clinical signs are related to the increase in venous pressure upstream from the SVC obstacle and the development of venous shunts ( Figure 13 ).[] CTA chest showed pulmonary embolus and incidental goiter with mild tracheal compression.[] The condition can also be a result of non-cancerous causes , like infection, vein inflammation, goiters, aneurysm of the aorta or blood clots, according to the A.D.A.M.[]

  • Right Ventricular Outflow Obstruction

    Examination findings were suggestive of multi nodular goiter. In view of her symptoms of dysphagia and hoarseness of voice, she underwent right hemithyroidectomy.[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Pulmonary Edema (POPE) Type I POPE Postextubation laryngospasm Epiglottitis Croup Choking/foreign body Strangulation Hanging Endotracheal tube obstruction Laryngeal tumor Goiter[]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    Physical findings are increased jugular venous pressure, tachycardia usually with a third heart sound, bilateral bibasilar crackles and a wide pulse pressure.[] She had a small goiter and typical signs of thyrotoxicosis including warm, moist skin and a fine tremor. There was an audible S3 on cardiac auscultation.[] Patients may present with the usual signs of high-output heart failure including tachycardia, elevated pulse pressure, hyperkinetic precordium, and jugular venous distension[]

  • Ligation of the Internal Jugular Vein

    The venous congestion, however, may be resolved within a few minutes since IJV ligation in swine did not lead to increased jugular venous pressure in five minutes [ 7 ].[] Incidental Detection of Internal Jugular Vein Thrombosis Secondary to Undiagnosed Benign Substernal Goiter.[] 50-7 A goiter is a non-neoplastic and non-inflammatory enlargement of the thyroid gland.[]

  • Persistent Left Superior Vena Cava

    Physical examination revealed mild increase of jugular venous pressure and mild hepatomegaly.[] A scintigraphy was performed and a thyroid goiter was diagnosed.[] During the neck examination a right lymphadenopathy was palpable and goiter thyroid was observed on the left side.[]

  • Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

    RV stiffness) and V waves (due to tricuspid regurgitation [TR]); Kussmaul’s sign (increased jugular venous pressure with inspiration, due to a noncompliant RV or significant[] Hashimoto's thyroiditis was also diagnosed because she had a diffuse goiter and a mild hypothyroidism (TSH 8.20 μU/mL, and FT4 0.80 ng/mL) with positive autoantibodies for[] Physical examination findings sometimes observed in PH and right ventricular (RV) dysfunction include: an elevated jugular venous pressure with prominent A waves (due to increased[]
