123 Possible Causes for Palatal Petechiae, Pediatric Disorder

  • Adenovirus Infection

    Adenovirus infections commonly occur in childhood and produce a wide range of clinical disease. The most common sites of infection are the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts but involvement of cardiovascular, neurological, cutaneous, ophthalmic, renal, and hepatic systems can also occur. A case of toxic[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    […] optic neuritis, and aquaporin-4 antibody-seronegative neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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] Pharyngeal inflammation and palatal petechiae are more common in adolescents.[aafp.org]

  • Scarlet Fever

  • Pharyngitis due to Group A Beta-Hemolytic Streptococcus

    Prospective identification and treatment of children with pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorder associated with group A streptococcal infection (PANDAS).[link.springer.com] Physical examination may reveal erythema and swelling of the pharynx, enlarged and erythematous tonsils, tonsillar exudate and palatal petechiae.[drplace.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..

  • Viral Exanthem

    Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) can also present as lymph node enlargement, yellow or gray tonsillar pseudomembrane, palatal petechiae, maculopapular or petechial eruption, splenomegaly[visualdx.com] On occasion a nonspecific enanthem ( Forscheimer's spots) of pinpoint red macules and petechiae can be seen over the soft palate and uvula just before or with the exanthem[atsu.edu] It is characterized by symmetric purpuric or painful edema and erythema that progress to purpuric papules and petechiae.[visualdx.com]

  • Chronic Tonsillitis

    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] Fever, adenopathy, palatal petechiae, and exudates are somewhat more common with GABHS than with viral tonsillopharyngitis, but there is much overlap.[merck.com] Tonsillitis associated with strep throat, if untreated, is hypothesized to lead to pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections[en.wikipedia.org]

  • 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]

  • Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura

    […] the soft and hard palate [ 16 Vaisman B, Medina AC, Ramirez G.[benthamopen.com] Abstract Immune thrombocytopenic purpura is a bleeding disorder for which management remains mainly guided by platelet counts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In 1996 the American Society of Hematology published a landmark guidance paper designed to assist clinicians in the management of this disorder.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
