  • Sinusitis

    Physical Findings Typical physical signs include bilateral nasal mucosal edema, purulent nasal secretions, and sinus tenderness (however, this is not a sensitive or specific[clevelandclinicmeded.com] Pathophysiology Stasis of secretions inside the sinuses can be triggered by (1) mechanical obstruction at the ostiomeatal complex due to anatomic factors or (2) mucosal edema[emedicine.medscape.com] In patients with allergic rhinitis, aggressive treatment of nasal symptoms and signs of mucosal edema, which can cause obstruction of the sinus outflow tracts, may decrease[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

  • Pharyngitis

    Laryngeal fiberscopy revealed bilateral vocal cords almost fixed at the median position, with mucosal redness, swelling, and edema at the hypopharyngeal area.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms that occur secondarily to the pathologic features of mucosal inflammation and submucosal edema include hoarseness, sore throat, cough, pain, or difficulty in swallowing[emedmd.com] EER causes laryngeal and pharyngeal erythema with edema of the vocal cords and false vocal cords, larynx, and pharynx.[emedmd.com]

  • Hereditary Angioedema

    Edema may also occur at the mucosal lining of the upper airways and the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.[symptoma.com] Mucosal edema of the bladder or urethra can result in urinary retention, stammering, pain, or anuria.[emedicine.medscape.com] "Thumbprinting" and a stacked coin appearance, also signs of mucosal edema, may also be seen on radiographs.[jamanetwork.com]

  • Pulmonary Barotrauma

    During very deep breath-hold diving, compression of the lungs during descent may rarely lead to a decrease in volume below residual volume, causing mucosal edema, vascular[merckmanuals.com] This effect may be stressful to the sinus mucosal lining and may cause mucosal edema, serosanguineous exudate, and submucosal hematoma [ 11 ].[aoemj.biomedcentral.com]

  • Gastric Lymphoma

    Endoscopy revealed focal nodularity in the gastric cardia (left) and mucosal edema in the fundus (right) .[endoatlas.com] Endoscopy showed irregular ulcers, mucosal edema, destruction, necrosis, and hyperplastic nodules. Pathologic examination confirmed the diagnosis of PGIL.[cjcr.amegroups.com] These may include mucosal edema, friability, patchy redness, irregular patchy gray or whitish granularity, contact bleeding, superficial irregular erosions and ulcerations[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Nasal Packing

    The extent of mucosal edema, crust formation, bleeding tendency, presence of synechiae, amount of nasal discharge, and the patency of the ostiomeatal complex (OMC) was evaluated[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Because it is a nonabsorbable solid, disadvantages may include pain and bleeding upon removal, nasal obstruction, and mucosal edema.[journals.plos.org]
