239 Possible Causes for Nasopharyngeal Obstruction

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    […] carcinoma Rash (with concomitant use of ampicillin) Complications of diphtheria Complications may include airway obstruction, myocarditis, polyneuritis, thrombocytopenia,[emedicine.medscape.com] […] mononucleosis Complications can include the following: Splenic rupture Hepatitis Guillain-Barré syndrome Encephalitis Hemolytic anemia Agranulocytosis Myocarditis Burkitt lymphoma Nasopharyngeal[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    Nasopharyngeal obstruction in infectious mononucleosis. Am Fam Physician . 1987 Jan. 35(1):205-9. [Medline] . Kaye KM, Kieff E.[emedicine.medscape.com] Young children are at highest risk of airway obstruction because of palatal and nasopharyngeal tonsil hypertrophy.[aafp.org] Airway obstruction is the most common cause of hospitalization from IM. Patients with immunosuppression are more likely to have fulminant EBV infection.[aafp.org]

  • Asphyxia

    The cause of death was determined to be asphyxia resulting from a complete obstruction of the posterior pharynx and upper larynx by thickened oral and nasopharyngeal secretions[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although airway obstruction is common in people with motor or neurologic disorders and in those who are chronically debilitated or institutionalized, food and foreign matter[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 1 H-S

    Hurler-Scheie syndrome is a genetic compound of two mucopolysaccharidoses, the Hurler and Scheie syndromes. The genetic error of metabolism caused by this syndrome produces intermediary systemic effects in the affected individuals. Lacking the enzyme α-l-iduronidase, glycosaminoglycans are deposited in the[…][ohsu.pure.elsevier.com]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    Although enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) is an effective treatment for mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) types I, II, IVA and VI, its effectiveness in children with central nervous system (CNS) disorders is said to be poor because the blood-brain barrier cannot be penetrated by ERT drugs. To assess CNS involvement in[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Viral Lower Respiratory Infection

  • Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma

    […] adenoid/nasopharyngeal mass and lymphadenopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The mass, which occurred in a 19-year-old woman of Asian descent, caused nasal airway obstruction in the setting of cervical lymphadenopathy that was initially ascribed to[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] on our review of the literature, we present the second reported case of anaplastic lymphoma kinase-positive anaplastic large-cell lymphoma presenting in an adult with an obstructing[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Patulous Eustachian Tube

    ., that the nasopharyngeal end of the Eustachian tube, not the more proximal bony segment, is the site of obstruction); new endoscopic equipment for better visualization to[enttoday.org] Cycle of dysfunction: structural or functional obstruction of the ET: Negative pressure develops in middle ear.[unboundmedicine.com] ET functions Ventilation/regulation of middle ear pressure Protection from nasopharyngeal secretions Drainage of middle ear fluid ET is closed at rest and opens with yawning[unboundmedicine.com]

  • Otitis Media

    Mechanical obstruction of the ET may be caused by primary tumor-like lesions arising from ET or secondary ET infiltration due to nasopharyngeal and parapharyngeal space tumor[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , which in rare cases is caused by nasopharyngeal carcinoma.[aafp.org] […] than two episodes per year) or persistent OME (greater than six weeks) should receive additional evaluation to rule out a serious underlying condition, such as mechanical obstruction[aafp.org]

  • Nitrous Oxide

    Generally, such patients fall into one of two categories: those who cannot inhale adequately through the nose because of anatomic and/or disease-induced nasopharyngeal obstructions[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
