184 Possible Causes for Late Onset Dysphagia

  • Dysphagia Lusoria

    Symptomatic vascular rings causing late-onset dysphagia (dysphagia lusoria) are quite unusual in adults.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Our report describes a case of late-onset dysphagia secondary to a right aortic arch with an aberrant left subclavian artery, which represents a rare variant of dysphagia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Manometric abnormalities are variable, but age-related manometric changes may contribute to clinically relevant dysphagia lusoria in patients who present later in life.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Esophagitis

  • Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy

    In the presence of a positive family history and late-onset ptosis, dysphagia, and proximal muscle weakness (its cardinal features), we suggest that PABPN1 gene analysis should[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Their major clinical manifestations were late-onset bilateral ptosis and dysphagia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (OPMD) is a rare inherited muscular disorder, clinically characterized by late-onset, slowly progressive bilateral ptosis, dysphagia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Radiculomyelopathy

    Dysphagia (usually a late feature with significant speech difficulties).[patient.info] Bulbar onset: The first sign is usually slurring of the speech (impaired tongue movement). Wasting and fasciculation of the tongue.[patient.info]

  • Lafora Disease

    onset: Mild improvement or disease stabilization reported Course after treatment Improvement: Over months May develop new weakness: Face; Dysarthria; Dysphagia Side effects[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] Cardiomyopathy: Improved more than myopathy Infant-onset disease Strength Improved: Distal weakness more improved than proximal Better pulmonary function Some muscles remain weak Late[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]

  • Oropharyngeal Carcinoma

    Rarely reported, late radiation-associated lower cranial neuropathies may be a major contributor to new-onset or progressive dysphagia in long-term oropharyngeal cancer survivors[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Late-RAD with lower cranial neuropathies resulted in profound and persistent functional impairment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Autosomal Dominant Progressive External Ophthalmoplegia Type 3

    Late onset of typical features of parkinsonism including a resting tremor, rigidity, and bradykinesia is seen in some patients.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] Some patients report bulbar symptoms of dysphagia, dysarthria and dysphonia.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]

  • Laryngeal Stridor

[8] Possible manifestations of late-onset laryngomalacia include obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, exercise-induced[emedicine.medscape.com] […] epiglottis close to the true vocal cords or redundant mucosa overlying the arytenoids. [7] It should be kept in mind that the presentation of laryngomalacia in older children (late-onset[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 1
