68 Possible Causes for Palatal Petechiae, Pediatric Disorder

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    Infectious mononucleosis should be suspected in patients 10 to 30 years of age who present with sore throat and significant fatigue, palatal petechiae, posterior cervical[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (ADEM), recurrent optic neuritis, and aquaporin-4 antibody-seronegative neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pharyngeal inflammation and palatal petechiae are more common in adolescents.[aafp.org]

  • Group A Beta-hemolytic Streptococcal Pharyngitis

    Physical examination may reveal erythema and swelling of the pharynx, enlarged and erythematous tonsils, tonsillar exudate and palatal petechiae.[drplace.com] Prospective identification and treatment of children with pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorder associated with group A streptococcal infection (PANDAS).[link.springer.com] On clinical examination, patients with group A strep pharyngitis usually have Pharyngeal and tonsillar erythema Tonsillar hypertrophy with or without exudates Palatal petechiae[cdc.gov]

  • Rubella

    Signs There may be petechiae on the soft palate (Forchheimer's sign) but this is not diagnostic for rubella.[patient.info] Ind J Pediatr 1989;56:349-54..

  • Adenovirus Infection

    Adenoviruses are common pathogens that often are associated with respiratory and gastrointestinal illness and/or conjunctivitis in young persons. Adenovirus serotypes 4 and 7 have caused outbreaks of self-limited febrile respiratory illness in young adults in basic military training. During the 1950s and 1960s, up to[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rheumatic Fever

    petechiae (“doughnut lesions”) Sudden onset of sore throat Tender, enlarged anterior cervical nodes Tonsillopharyngeal erythema Tonsillopharyngeal exudates Features suggestive[aafp.org] Literature began to appear in 1998 suggesting that acute rheumatic fever might be another disorder associated with PANDAS — pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders[emedicine.com] Additional clinical findings include tonsillopharyngeal erythema with or without exudates, anterior cervical lymphadenitis, soft palate petechiae, beefy red swollen uvula,[doi.org]

  • Chronic Tonsillitis

    Fever, adenopathy, palatal petechiae, and exudates are somewhat more common with GABHS than with viral tonsillopharyngitis, but there is much overlap.[merck.com] Of these, 2 studies measured H pylori colonization of tonsillar tissue in pediatric populations. One study analyzed tissue in both adult and pediatric populations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tonsillitis associated with strep throat, if untreated, is hypothesized to lead to pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Dyskeratosis Congenita

    The intraoral examination identified bleeding gums; petechiae of the palate, tongue and cheek mucosa; and an atrophic, smooth and shining dorsal surface of the tongue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The lifetime occurrence of any of these disorders in our study was 83% in pediatric subjects and 88% in adults.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSION: Dyskeratosis congenita is a severe multisystem disorder, which should be considered in cases of pediatric exudative retinopathies with concurrent signs and/or[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
