1,374 Possible Causes for Hemochromatosis, Pulmonary Hypertension

  • Thalassemia

    The latter are linked to a high prevalence of thromboembolic and cerebrovascular events, as well as leg ulcers and pulmonary hypertension.[] Abstract The authors present a unique case of torsades de pointes in a β-thalassemia patient with early iron overload in the absence of any structural abnormalities as seen in hemochromatosis[] Pulmonary hypertension in beta-thalassemia major and the role of L-carnitine therapy. Pediatr Hematol Oncol. 2008 Dec. 25(8):734-43. [Medline].[]

  • Schistosomiasis

    The diagnosis was restrictive cardiomyopathy and pulmonary hypertension due to schistosomiasis.[] ECG can show pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale. CXR may indicate pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale.[] Medical treatment was started with antiparasitic therapy, diuretics, and systemic and pulmonary vasodilators, but there was no apparent response.[]

  • Hemosiderosis

    During the follow-up the patient developed a severe episode of pulmonary infection and pulmonary hypertension which responded well to medical treatment.[] The present case was considered IgA nephropathy and renal hemosiderosis secondary to primary hemochromatosis.[] The incidence of dry lung syndrome and persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN) was significantly higher in the DCH group than in the CAM (P 0.001) and non-DCH-non-CAM[]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    We review the evolution of a 32-year-old woman with restrictive cardiomyopathy, moderate pulmonary hypertension, and severe biventricular systo-diastolic dysfunction in whom[] Clinical clues to promote recognition of cardiac amyloidosis, cardiac sarcoidosis, and cardiac hemochromatosis and imaging techniques used to facilitate diagnosis are discussed[] RESULTS: The clinical presentation of restrictive cardiomyopathy can be highly variable, ranging from asymptomatic to overt signs of heart failure with pulmonary hypertension[]

  • Liver Failure

    Other clinically relevant associations with patients with liver disease includes Portopulmonary hypertension (POPH) is a pulmonary hypertension syndrome with vascular obstruction[] Relation of hemochromatosis with hepatocellular carcinoma: epidemiology, natural history, pathophysiology, screening, treatment, and prevention.[] Many physical examination signs overlap with alcoholic cirrhosis reflecting portal hypertension and complications of cirrhosis.[]

  • Left Cardiac Ventricle Disorder

    pulmonary arterial hypertension; CTEPH: chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension; DPG: diastolic pressure gradient.[] For patients with cardiac enlargement, all underlying causes - such as high blood pressure, hemochromatosis, thyroid problems, pulmonary blood clots, sleep apnea, emphysema[] Known causes of RCM are build-up of proteins in the heart muscle (amyloidosis), excess iron in the heart (hemochromatosis), scarring of the heart from illness or open-heart[]

  • Cardiac Cirrhosis

    Signs of pulmonary hypertension include a closely split S 2 with a loud pulmonic component.[] It has a higher incidence in postnecrotic cirrhosis and hemochromatosis than in Laennec's cirrhosis 坏死后肝硬变及血色素沉着症引起的肝癌比门脉性肝硬变所引起者为多。[] Thus, the diagnosis of a cardiac hemochromatosis was made.[]

  • Congenital Dyserythropoietic Anemia

    We report 3 siblings from a family known to have CDA type I who presented with persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN).[] The initial diagnosis was hereditary hemochromatosis.[] We report a CDA1 patient who as a newborn presented with macrocytic anemia and persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN) requiring mechanical ventilation.[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    A 42-year-old diabetic man was admitted with systolic heart failure and pulmonary hypertension being treated with sildenafil for the previous year.[] […] cardiomyopathy valvular disease congenital heart disease diastolic dysfunction hypertension with left ventricular hypertrophy hypertrophic cardiomyopathy amyloidosis sarcoidosis hemochromatosis[] Chronic diseases — such as diabetes, HIV, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, or a buildup of iron (hemochromatosis) or protein (amyloidosis) — also may contribute to heart failure[]

  • Hemochromatosis

    She had systolic heart failure with a left ventricular ejection fraction of 15%, severe pulmonary hypertension, mitral insufficiency, a history of ventricular tachycardia,[] Hemochromatosis usually occurs in men above the age of 50 years.[] Pulmonary hypertension and right heart failure in patients with ß- thalassemia intermedia. Chest 107, 50-53.[]
