8,586 Possible Causes for Necrosis

  • Sinusitis

    Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) inhibitors have revolutionized treatment of many inflammatory diseases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tissue necrosis and ulceration related to intranasal drug use should be recognized as a potential risk factor for invasive fungal sinusitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Endoscopy may show mucosal necrosis (indicative of mucormycosis). Mucormycosis grows rapidly and can invade vasculature causing ischemia.[step2.medbullets.com]

  • Insect Bite

    Surgical exploration revealed segmental necrosis and contracture of the superficial and deep flexors of the fingers, requiring fasciotomy and tendon-lengthening procedures[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Immunodeficient individuals may present with tissue necrosis due to an insect bite.[symptoma.com] In contrast, tissue necrosis and systemic symptoms do require special treatment, possibly even surgery.[symptoma.com]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    Interleukin (IL)-1 beta, IL-8, IL-6, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) were markedly elevated in nasal lavage fluid during acute URI compared to baseline, and all[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A subset of NPS samples (n 134) was analyzed for interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-6, and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α concentrations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In diphtheria, a potent bacterial exotoxin causes local inflammation and cell necrosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Influenza

    Endomyocardial biopsy results yielded myocardial necrosis through complement-mediated cellular injury without evidence of interstitial infiltrates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is the action of these two moieties that result in the symptoms of influenza as well as necrosis of the superficial layers of the respiratory epithelium.[symptoma.com]

  • Pneumonia

    Multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii (MDRAB) pneumonia with severe sepsis in a patient with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), who is predisposed after treatment with tumor necrosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is characterised by progressive necrosis of lung parenchyma with cavitating foci evident upon radiological investigation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is seen in patients with a compromised immune system , either from chemotherapy for cancer , HIV/AIDS , and those treated with TNF (tumor necrosis factor), such as for[emedicinehealth.com]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    After treatment, the serum levels of c-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6), interleukin-8 (IL-8), and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) of the two groups obviously[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dementia

    More recently some observational studies have suggested a protective effect from conventional synthetic disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (csDMARDS) and tumour necrosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In Binswanger disease, vascular changes observed are fibrohyalinosis of the small arteries and fibrinoid necrosis of the larger vessels inside the brain.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Streptococcal Infection

    Both the intact tubular epithelial cells and oedematous interstitium had strong positive signals, whereas only interstitial inflammation was dominant without tubular necrosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There was extensive necrosis of the periorbital and forehead soft tissue, requiring extensive debridement to control the invasive process.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bilateral renal cortical necrosis was noted in three cases (including two with bacterial embolism).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Urinary Tract Infection

    […] diabetes include renal and perirenal abscess, emphysematous pyelonephritis, emphysematous cystitis, fungal infections, xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis, and papillary necrosis[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Sunburn

    Compared with placebo, participants receiving vitamin D3 (200,000 international units) demonstrated reduced expression of proinflammatory mediators tumor necrosis factor-α[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Within an hour of UVR exposure, mast cells release preformed mediators including histamine, serotonin, and tumor necrosis factor, leading to prostaglandin and leukotriene[emedicine.medscape.com] Ultraviolet B irradiation of skin induces mast cell degranulation and release of tumour necrosis factor-alpha. Immunol Cell Biol . 1995 Jun. 73(3):226-33. [Medline] .[emedicine.medscape.com]
