272 Possible Causes for Lip Cyanosis, Pulmonary Disorder, X-Ray Abnormal

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    The chest X-ray may or may not be abnormal. However, a special X-ray test called a high resolution CT scan will frequently demonstrate abnormalities.[medicinenet.com] There seems to be a genetic component because some families have more than one person affected by the disorder.[msdmanuals.com] Imaging techniques like chest X-ray, CT scan and echocardiogram help in determining the location and extent of damage to lungs.[symptoma.com]

  • Asbestosis

    (" cyanosis "), and failure of the right side of the heart ("cor pulmonale").[medicinenet.com] […] shadowing on the chest x-ray and abnormalities of lung function tests.[australianasbestosnetwork.org.au] (See also Overview of Asbestos-Related Disorders and Overview of Environmental Pulmonary Disease .)[msdmanuals.com]

  • Asthma

    (very pale or blue coloring in the face, lips, fingernails) Rapid movement of nostrils Ribs or stomach moving in and out deeply and rapidly Expanded chest that does not deflate[aafa.org] Chest X-ray – This may show abnormality in the airway. Arterial blood gas analysis – shows decreased oxygen concentration in blood.[thehealthsite.com] Airway inflammation has been implicated in evoking progressive pulmonary disorders including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma as a result of exposure[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Disorder

    (cyanosis) seen in them. [14] The hypoxia and fluid retention leads to them being called "Blue Bloaters."[physio-pedia.com] Chest X-ray to exclude other diagnoses (and then a CT scan if necessary to investigate abnormalities).[netdoctor.co.uk] […] underlying pulmonary disorders, such as asthma (ROAD) or emphysema (COPD).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lymphocytic Interstitial Pneumonia

    Previous Contents Next Lymphocytic interstitial pneumonitis (LIP) LIP is a non-infectious pulmonary disorder caused by white cell infiltration into alveolae.[books.mcai.org.uk] The incidence of respiratory failure with cyanosis is higher amongst children with LIP. The diagnosis of LIP is often delayed due to the nonspecific symptoms.[symptoma.com] Although chest X-rays showed no marked abnormalities, her level of serum KL-6 was extremely high. We therefore suspected the presence of interstitial pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    However, the development of pulmonary disorders after EV71 infection remains largely unknown.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Poor judgement Breathlessness during rest Rapid heart rate (90 to 100 bpm at rest) Blue/grey lips or fingernails (cyanosis) Fever of up to 101.3 F/38.5 C Profuse perspiration[climbing-high.com] Examples of tests used in diagnosing pulmonary edema include: complete blood count echocardiogram, or an ultrasound, to check for abnormal heart activity chest X-ray (CXR)[healthline.com]

  • Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia

    […] normal or minimally abnormal chest X ray in a subset of cases.[hivinsite.ucsf.edu] […] manifestations are very common and are often difficult to distinguish from other pulmonary disorders on clinical grounds.[pmj.bmj.com] Pneumocystis carinii in immunocompetent patients with primary pulmonary disorders as detected by single or nested PCR.

[14] The hypoxia and fluid retention leads to them being called "Blue Bloaters."[physio-pedia.com] The chest x-ray is an insensitive test for diagnosing emphysema and is abnormal only when the disease is relatively advanced.[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • Pneumoconiosis

    A 40-year-old female dental technician visited our hospital for the investigation of a chest X-ray abnormality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As with other pulmonary disorders, supplemental oxygen should be provided in patients who meet criteria.[clinicaladvisor.com] Other Pneumoconiosis: More than 40 inhaled minerals cause lung lesions and x-ray abnormalities.[histopathology-india.net]

  • Silicosis

    The following tests may also be conducted to make a definite diagnosis: Chest X-ray — A chest X-ray may be taken to look for any abnormalities in your lungs.[ucsfhealth.org] Patients who have silicosis are at risk for pulmonary complications and other disorders (eg, TB, nocardiosis, lung cancer, progressive systemic sclerosis).[merckmanuals.com] Tests you may have include: a chest X-ray to detect abnormalities in the structure of your lungs a computerised tomography (CT) scan of your chest to produce more detailed[nhs.uk]
