  • Diffuse Scleroderma

    Twelve patients (35% of the total cohort) had pulmonary hypertension defined as PAs of 30 mm Hg or greater.[] A case of severe hypertension and acute renal failure developing in a 56 year old woman affected by diffuse scleroderma is reported.[] […] thickening - Stable or slow regression Organs affected - Raynaud's, ulcers of digit tips, calinosis, oesophageal stricture, small bowel malabsorption, pulmonary arterial hypertension[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Diabetes requiring insulin was significantly more common and hypertension less common with corticosteroids.[] muscle weakness of the lower extremities.[] Subsequently, the patient developed severe constipation and hypertension with tachycardia. Nerve conduction studies revealed demyelinating polyneuropathy.[]

  • Cushing's Disease

    He was diagnosed with ocular hypertension (OHT) and the management plan was for monitoring without treatment.[] The following signs and symptoms are common: Weight gain Skin changes Hirsutism Menstrual disorders Progressive proximal muscle weakness Infertility Impotence Moodiness, irritability[] Several studies have reported an association between idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) and deficits of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis.[]

  • Mixed Connective Tissue Disease

    Pulmonary hypertension is the major cause of death in MCTD. We report an autopsy case of MCTD with pulmonary hypertension.[] We present the case of a 50-year-old black woman whose inaugural presentation of MCDT was oropharyngeal dysphagia, symmetrical proximal muscle weakness, tongue atrophy and[] Proximal muscle weakness with or without tenderness is common, typically among people who have elevated levels of muscle enzymes (eg, CK).[]

  • Vitamin D Deficiency

    The prevalence of VDD was significantly associated with education, high body mass index (BMI), hypertension (HT) and metabolic syndrome (MS).[] We report a four-year-old African boy referred for proximal muscle weakness, fatigability and episodic limb pain.[] A young woman with severe vitamin D deficiency presented with proximal muscle weakness, fragility fracture and pseudoarthrosis.[]

  • Cushing Syndrome

    At 18 weeks of gestation, severe hypertension developed. Medical history was significant for chronic hypertension, nephrolithiasis, and an atrial myxoma excised in 2011.[] We report a case of a 74-year-old male patient who presented with severe hypokalemia, proximal muscle weakness, peripheral edema, metabolic alkalosis, and worsening hyperglycemia[] In addition to classical features of glucocorticoid excess, such as proximal muscle weakness and wide purple striae, patients may present with the associated comorbidities[]

  • Bartter's Disease

    Patients have high levels of plasma renin concentration which is not associated with hypertension.[] Clinical findings Proximal muscle weakness, failure to thrive, short stature, convulsions, tetany, cramps, ileus, gout, mental retardation, enuresis, nocturia, polyuria, salt[] RESEARCH Jan 5, 2018 07:06 am In a patient with Bartter's syndrome (increased plasma renin, juxtaglomerular-cell hyperplasia, hyperaldosteronism and hypokalemia, but no hypertension[]

  • Overlap Syndrome

    Pulmonary hypertension is the commonest disease-related cause of death in patients with MCTD.[] SSc patients with serum CK more than 2 times upper limit, myalgia, and proximal muscle weakness were analyzed for the presence of polymyositis with electromyography (EMG)[] August 02, 2018 Patients with SSc-SLE overlap syndrome were younger, had higher rates of pulmonary arterial hypertension, and less frequently had SSc cutaneous manifestations[]

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

    Among patients with only one PNS, hypertension (p 0.012) and hypercalcemia (p 0.000) were related to advanced stage.[] weakness.[] Typically, proximal muscle weakness is progressive with pathologically demonstrable muscle inflammation and necrosis.[]

  • Hypertension

    Hypertensive urgencies frequently present with headache (22%), epistaxis (17%), faintness, and psychomotor agitation (10%) and hypertensive emergencies frequently present[] muscle weakness Lid lag; fine tremor of the outstretched hands; warm, moist skin Thyroid-stimulating hormone; free thyroxine Radioactive iodine uptake and scan Aortic coarctation[] Thyroid-stimulating hormone; free thyroxine None Hyperthyroidism S5.4-10 Warm, moist skin; heat intolerance; nervousness; tremulousness; insomnia; weight loss; diarrhea; proximal[]
