509 Possible Causes for Hypertension, Secondary Amenorrhea

  • Acromegaly

    Prevalence of hypertension at the initial visit was much higher in those with MI or stroke than those without (94 vs. 43%, p   0.001).[] References: [1] [4] Clinical features Tumor mass effects Headache , vision loss ( bitemporal hemianopsia ) , cranial nerve palsies : Oligomenorrhea , secondary amenorrhea[] Amenorrhea, the stopping of menstruation, is often a secondary condition associated with acromegaly in women.[]

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

    Polycystic ovary syndrome is associated with hypertensive disorders in pregnancy.[] She was advised to visit the endocrinology department for secondary amenorrhea and endocrine survey.[] Patient 4 had prepubertal overgrowth that evolved into pseudo-acromegaly, insulin resistance, secondary amenorrhea, and androgen excess at 15.6 years.[]

  • Endocrine Dysfunction

    Plasmapheresis was associated with the appearance of amenorrhea and galactorrhea; also hypertension and proliferative retinopathy developed during this therapy.[] Amenorrhea may be classified as primary or secondary.[] ;19:94-8 The prevalence of cerebrovascular accident (CVA) or stroke is increasing in frequency amongst the general population due to increased prevalence of diabetes and hypertension[]

  • Empty Sella Syndrome

    The combination of the empty sella syndrome (ESS) and benign intracranial hypertension (BIH) is illustrated by two case histories.[] The case of a 37-year-old woman with secondary amenorrhea and clear signs of hyperandrogenism is reported.[] The intracranial pressure was monitored continuously for at least 48 hours in five patients with empty sella syndrome, who did not have clinical benign intracranial hypertension[]

  • Anorectic

    A 39-year-old woman developed pulmonary hypertension after using an orally administered anorectic drug, propylhexedrine hydrochloride, over a period of eight years.[] In sixteen adolescent anorectic inpatients with secondary amenorrhea pelvic ultrasound examination of the ovaries was performed at lowest weight and after weight recovery.[] The use of aminorex, an amphetamine analog that increases norepinephrine levels in the central nervous system, led to an epidemic of primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) in[]

  • Cushing's Disease

    Several studies have reported an association between idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) and deficits of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis.[] , hypertrichosis (abnormal hair growth), underdevelopment of secondary sexual characteristics, hydrocephalus and cerebral tension.[] This is a longitudinal study performed in 10 patients with active CD matched with 10 hypertensive and 10 healthy controls.[]

  • Hyperthyroidism

    We present a case of a 30-year-old woman diagnosed with arterial hypertension in the 25th week of pregnancy.[] Previous studies have reported conflicting results regarding the mechanisms underlying the pathophysiology of pulmonary hypertension (PHT) in patients with hyperthyroidism[] Graves' hyperthyroidism commonly causes tachycardia and may result in pulmonary hypertension and high output cardiac failure.[]

  • Tuberous Sclerosis

    […] of secondary hypertension revealed typical proteinuric hypertensive nephropathy, hypertensive retinopathy, and sleep-apnea syndrome.[] To determine the impact of everolimus on female fertility, including menstrual irregularities, secondary amenorrhea, and luteinizing and follicle stimulating hormone levels[] Pulmonary hypertension, cor pulmonale, and worsening hypoxia/hypercapnia eventually supervene.[]

  • Adrenocortical Carcinoma

    Hyperaldosteronism is a cause of secondary hypertension and its diagnosis is usually benign.[] A Chinese adolescent girl presented with secondary amenorrhea. During follow-up, she gradually developed Cushingoid features and virilization.[] A 65-year-old seemingly well male patient was referred to our clinic under the suspicion of hyperaldosteronism due to hypertension combined with hypokalemia.[]

  • Adrenogenital Syndrome

    Deficiency of 17-hydroxylase leads to deficiency of estrogens and androgens and to excess deoxycorticosterone, causing sexual infantilism and hypertension.[] Thus, infants with 11-beta-hydroxylase deficiency will present with hypertension, differentiating this disorder from classical CAH.[] Deficiency of 11-hydroxylase, an enzyme that catalyzes the last step in the synthesis of cortisol, leads to virilization and hypertension, the latter of which is caused by[]
