99 Possible Causes for Increased Susceptibility to Infections, Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia, Recurrent Otitis Media

  • Common Variable Immunodeficiency

    susceptibility to infections.[] HIM presents with recurrent sinopulmonary infections and Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP).[] Antibody immunodeficiencies are marked by hypo- or dysgammaglobulinemia, recurrent bacterial otitis media, and sinopulmonary infections.[]

  • Severe Combined Immunodeficiency

    Primary immunodeficiencies (PIDs) represent a large group of disorders with an increased susceptibility to infections.[] We present a case of a 2-month-old boy with partially treated meningitis and suspected Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia. A full blood count revealed profound lymphopenia.[] He has also experienced recurrent episodes of otitis media from repeat Streptoccous pneumoniae. He notably has reduced T and B cell counts.[]

Am J Med Sci 321 : 56–65 27.[] otitis media otalgia lower respiratory symptoms hemoptysis renal symptoms hematuria skin leukocytoclastic angiitis Imaging Radiography indication should be performed in all[]

  • Primary Immune Deficiency Disorder

    The most common symptom of PIDD is an increased susceptibility to infection.[] In some patients with CVID, uncommon infectious agents such as Pneumocystis carinii and Mycoplasma pneumoniae may be detected first.[] Scarred tympanic membranes or chronic perforation due to recurrent otitis media is commonly seen in patients with antibody deficiencies.[]

  • HIV-2 Infection

    Susceptibility to infection does not need to increase with age to reproduce higher HIV-2 prevalence amongst older individuals.[] carinii pneumonia (PCP), tuberculosis, meningitis, and herpes simplex infections.[] […] of IL-2-producing CD4 T-cells is found to decline ( 42 ), which in turn relates to the reduced renewal capacity and increased susceptibility of these populations of cells[]

  • Congenital Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome

    KEY TERMS Agammaglobulinemia —The lack of gamma globulins in the blood, associated with an increased susceptibility to infection.[] Patients with AIDS are especially susceptible to opportunistic infections (usually pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections, tuberculosis, candida[] Antibody immunodeficiencies are marked by hypo- or dysgammaglobulinemia, recurrent bacterial otitis media, and sinopulmonary infections.[]

  • Wiskott Aldrich Syndrome

    Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS) is an X-linked recessive disorder characterized by thrombocytopenia, small platelets, eczema, increased susceptibility to infection, and immunodeficiency[] (including Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia), meningitis, sepsis, and recurrent herpes simplex infection.[] otitis media infections.[]

  • Hypogammaglobulinemia

    susceptibility to pyogenic infections.[] CARINII PNEUMONITIS IN A PATIENT WITH CONGENITAL HYPOGAMMAGLOBULINEMIA. ( 14261461 ) ROBBINS JB...PEARSON HA 1965 13 PNEUMOCYSTIS CARINII PNEUMONIA AND CONGENITAL HYPOGAMMAGLOBULINAEMIA[] Case description: A 41-year-old female with TS, hypothyroidism, and recurrent otitis media as a child presents with severe vitamin deficiencies including: iron, vitamin B12[]

  • Otitis Media

    Whilst this is often accompanied by a feeling of relief as the pressure inside the ear is released, this can lead to excessive draining of the ear and increases susceptibility[] Otitis media may also be caused by other disease organisms, including Bordetella pertussis, the causative agent of whooping cough, and Pneumocystis carinii, which often causes[] Recurrent otitis media:Patients with recurrent otitis media may be placed on daily doses of an antibiotic such as sulfisoxazole or amoxicillin prophylaxis for 3 to 6 months[]
