5,194 Possible Causes for Hypertension, Tachycardia

  • Pneumonia

    A 23-month-old girl visited the emergency department with high fever, cough, first wheezing episode, chest retraction and tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] One week after admission, she developed fever, dyspnea, hypoxemia, tachycardia, and increased serum C-reactive protein level.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The following may also occur: dyspnoea sharp chest pain worsening cough fever/chills Tachycardia pleuritic chest pain headaches malaise muscle pains cyanosis due to poorly[physio-pedia.com]

  • Appendicitis

    This is a case of a 53-year-old male patient with a history of hypertension who developed sudden onset of right lower quadrant pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fever is usually low-grade with mild tachycardia. Less then 50% of children will have a classic presentation of appendicitis, despite having appendicitis.[sages.org] Other indications of peritonitis include increasing abdominal distension, acute abdomen, tachycardia, rapid and shallow breathing, and restlessness.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • 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).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The present article reports the case of a 50-year-old male acromegalic patient who presented symptoms of syncope induced by ventricular tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] by cardiac hypertrophy, followed by diastolic dysfunction and ultimately failure of systolic function • The presence of arrhythmias (atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia[slideshare.net]

  • Influenza

    Disease Growth and Development Gynecologic Oncology H Head Trauma Health Care Delivery Health IT Health Law Health Policy Heart Failure Hematology/Oncology General HIV/AIDS Hypertension[nejm.org] There can also be tachycardia and dyspnea but with hypotension. Vomiting and diarrhea may also occur, but are rare findings associated with the disorder.[symptoma.com] Upon examination, patients may have some or all of the following findings: Fever of 100-104 F; fever is generally lower in elderly patients than in young adults Tachycardia[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    He had episodes of hypertensive crises, for which he was thoroughly investigated and it was found to be due to autonomic instability.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] adrenal insufficiency, but there are few reports of isolated adrenocorticotropic hormone deficiency without any electrolytes imbalance that showed polymorphic ventricular tachycardia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] several AI patients are frequently exposed to relative glucocorticoid excess potentially leading to develop chronic complications, such as diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, hypertension[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningitis

    Cerebrospinal fluid analysis revealed a high opening pressure but no biochemical parameters to suggest TBM, hence she was treated as idiopathic intracranial hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Some factors have however been identified that could worsen the prognosis and they include: Advanced age Low Glasgow Coma Scale Tachycardia Reduced CSF leucocyte count Presence[symptoma.com] The patients with ischemic zone infarction were older and had stroke risk factors such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension and hyperlipidemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    A 34-year-old woman who had been using oral contraceptives for 10 years developed hypertensive crisis with papilloedema after an upper respiratory infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Respiratory compromise manifests as tachypnea, tachycardia, and the use of accessory muscles of respiration.[emedicine.medscape.com] Therefore, decongestants are not recommended for use in children under 12 years of age with the common cold. [15] Oral decongestants are also contraindicated in patients with hypertension[en.m.wikipedia.org]

  • Pheochromocytoma

    We report a 36-year-old woman, previously diagnosed with essential hypertension, who developed severe hypertension in pregnancy complicated by insulin-dependent gestational[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Five days later, the patient had ventricular tachycardia, and severe hypertension, remarkable blood pressure fluctuation between 224/76 and 70/50 mm Hg.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe the case of a 67-year-old man presenting with ventricular tachycardia (VT) and systolic heart failure secondary to a left adrenal phaeochromocytoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Japanese Encephalitis

    Eclampsia is one of the hypertensive disorders of pregnancy causing considerable maternal morbidity and mortality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] poliomyelitis was initially considered due to the clinical features of aseptic meningitis, respiratory paralysis, pharyngeal paralysis with pooling secretions in the pharynx, tachycardia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] failure , eosinophilia , and pulmonary effusion and infiltrate; respiratory and renal failure in a patient with acid fast bacilli in sputum and pulmonary infiltrate; and hypertension[drugs.com]

  • Scorpion Sting

    Stroke following scorpion sting is a rare complication and can occur by various mechanisms such as hypertension, hypotension, DIC, myocarditis and venom-induced vasculitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In view of persistent tachycardia (heart rate 160/min), catecholamine storm was suspected and prazosin was added. However, shock was refractory.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Though uncommon, scorpion stings can cause cerebrovascular accidents by various mechanisms such as venom induced autonomic storm leading to hypertension, hypotension, myocarditis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
