661 Possible Causes for Mucosal Edema

  • 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[] 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[] 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[]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    Aerosolized racemic epinephrine is sometimes used to reduce mucosal edema in patients with croup, but its value in epiglottitis is not defined, and adverse events have been[] Findings may include the following: Nasal mucosal erythema and edema are common Nasal discharge: Profuse discharge is more characteristic of viral infections than bacterial[] The pus further irritates the mucosal lining causing more edema, epithelial destruction and ostial obstruction.[]

  • Pharyngitis

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

  • Hereditary Angioedema

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

  • Hereditary Angioedema Type 1

    edema [ 5 ].[] […] tissue spaces, producing the characteristic edema.[] […] activated, kallikrein is generated that cleaves high molecular weight kinninogen producing bradykinin (primary mediator in AAE) which increases vascular permeability causing mucosal[]

  • Status Epilepticus

    edema Developing a new, unrelated condition in which seizures are coincidentally also a symptom, but are not controlled by an anticonvulsant already used Metabolic disturbances[] Gastroenteritis while on an anticonvulsant, where lower levels of anticonvulsant may exist in the bloodstream due to vomiting of gastric contents or reduced absorption due to mucosal[]

  • Acute Nephritis

    Obliteration of lumen by mucosal edema &Obliteration of lumen by mucosal edema & cellular infiltrationcellular infiltration 3.3.[]

  • 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[] This effect may be stressful to the sinus mucosal lining and may cause mucosal edema, serosanguineous exudate, and submucosal hematoma [ 11 ].[]

  • Gastric Lymphoma

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

  • 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[] Because it is a nonabsorbable solid, disadvantages may include pain and bleeding upon removal, nasal obstruction, and mucosal edema.[]
