245 Possible Causes for Leg Edema, Progressive Dementia

  • Multiple Myeloma

    Some cognitively normal patients present with rapid progression to profound dementia in a couple of years.[] A 75-year-old man presented with progressive leg edema, had nephrotic range proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia, moderate renal failure, and occult blood in his urine.[] This may result in a condition called nephrotic syndrome, where there is excess protein in the urine and the lower legs can become swollen (also called “edema”).[]

  • Systemic Amyloidosis

    During this observation period, the level of IgE gradually increased and, at 2 years after the initial diagnosis, bilateral leg edema and ascites with marked hepatosplenomegaly[] Case report and management: We report a case in a 66-year-old patient with legs edema, inappetence and frothy urine for 2 weeks.[] Case Presentation A 66-year-old male was admitted on March 2014, presenting with edema of legs, in appetence and frothy urine for 2 weeks.[]

  • Hereditary ATTR Amyloidosis

    Support stockings may be recommended for patients with leg edema (swelling).[] This may result in a condition called nephrotic syndrome, where there is excess protein in the urine and the lower legs can become swollen (also called “edema”).[] Fluid balance – the 3Ds Fluid build- up due to heart stiffness causes leg swelling (edema) and breathlessness due to fluid in the lungs.[]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    […] found the three most common presentations of chronic subdurals to be symptoms of increased ICP, fluctuating drowsiness, and progressive dementia. 26 Presenting complaints[] We herein report the case of a 79-year-old man with IAD who presented with leg edema and pain in his extremities following a recent history of chronic subdural hematoma.[] As noted above, presentations can be subtle or can mimic other disease processes such as worsening Parkinson’s disease or dementia.[]

  • Intermittent Hydrarthrosis

    CLN11 disease Progressive non-fluent aphasia Semantic dementia Acrokeratosis verruciformis of Hopf Acute fatty liver of pregnancy Autosomal recessive nonsyndromic intellectual[] , unspecified Approximate Synonyms Anasarca Ankle edema Ankle swelling Edema (swelling) Edema (swelling) leg Edema (swelling), arms and legs Edema of face Edema of foot Edema[] Susceptibility to viral and mycobacterial infections X-linked mendelian susceptibility to mycobacterial diseases due to IKBKG deficiency Behavioral variant of frontotemporal dementia[]

  • Addison's Disease

    We described a 38-year-old woman of rapidly progressive dementia with white matter encephalopathy and death.[] A physical examination revealed leg edema, tachycardia, tachypnea, bilateral basal crepitations, and blood pressure 110/70 mmHg.[] Adrenoleukodystrophy begins in infancy or childhood with weakness and spasticity and progresses to dementia, blindness and quadriparesis.[]

  • Livedo Reticularis

    One month later, she developed edema on the legs.[] His chief neurological manifestation was rapidly progressive dementia, which developed 6 years after the appearance of livedo reticularis.[] It affects young subjects, primarily women, and its neurological manifestations are TIAs, ischemic stroke, progressive dementia and epileptic seizures.[]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Other manifestations of adrenoleukodystropy begin in infancy or childhood with weakness and spasticity and the disorder progresses rapidly to dementia, blindness and quadriparesis[] A 65-year-old male with liver cirrhosis of alcoholic etiology was admitted to hospital with bilateral leg edema, ascites, and marked weakness.[] Adrenomyeloneuropathy begins in adolescence or early adulthood with weakness, spasticity, and distal polyneuropathy but is milder and progresses more slowly.[]

  • Dopamine Agonist

    Diagnosis was: Parkinson disease with dementia, multiple system atrophy parkinsonian type, multiple system atrophy cerebellar type, progressive sopranuclear palsy, cortico-basal[] However, these drugs can induce bothersome leg swelling or edema in about 20 percent of patients.[] View Article PubMed Google Scholar Barquero-Jimenez MS, Dominguez-Salgado M: [Dementia in progressive supranuclear paralysis patients].[]

  • Hypotension

    Take a focused cardiac history: chest pain, shortness of breath, leg edema. 5.[] Lewy bodies in CNS, predominantly neocortical and limbic system Autonomic dysfunction occurs early in course; parkinsonism; progressive dementia precedes or accompanies parkinsonism[] Circulatory dynamics in progressive autonomic failure (chapter 7) in Autonomic Failure (R. Bannister, Ed), Oxford, 1983. Thaisetthawatkul P and others.[]
