140 Possible Causes for Left Ventricular Hypertrophy, Neonatal Feeding Difficulties

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    We report a 10-year-old girl presenting with severe neonatal hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), feeding difficulties, mildly abnormal facial features, and progressive skeletal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Fabry disease (FD) and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) are two diseases with a different pathophysiology, both cause left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and myocardial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Left ventricular hypertrophy is rare in children with TNNT2 mutations. Left ventricular hypertrophy is absent in the minority of adults, but most have an abnormal ECG.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Klinefelter Syndrome

    Growth and feeding Neonates with Klinefelter syndrome are generally unremarkable with normal growth parameters Height velocity tends to be increased by 5 years of age; therefore[web.archive.org] His echocardiogram demonstrated symmetrical left ventricular hypertrophy with minimal diastolic dysfunction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of a normal foetal structure between the left pulmonary artery and the descending aorta) Skeletal abnormalities are more common, including hyperextensible joints Learning difficulties[web.archive.org]

  • Pediatric Arterial Ischemic Stroke

    In infants, the findings may be seen as feeding difficulties, crying and screaming ( Table 1 ), [ 2, 6, 15, 16 ].[intechopen.com] Hypertrophy seen in the ventricular septum together with movement of the mitral valve anteriorally causes a narrowing of the left ventricle outlet [ 36 ].[intechopen.com] Neonates Older children Feeding problems Fatigue Lack of interest in surroundings Lack of appetite Irritability Paleness Diarrhoea Dyspnoea Sweating Tachypnea Vomiting Tachycardia[intechopen.com]
