11 Possible Causes for Palatal Petechiae, Systemic Arterial Embolism

  • Acute Bacterial Endocarditis

    Petechiae : Conjunctivae. Hands and feet (dorsum). Chest and abdominal wall. Oral mucosae and soft palate. Splinter or subungual haemorrhages : linear and red.[patient.info] The following embolic sites were reported: 3 in the central nervous system (CNS), 1 in the spleen, 1 in the legs, and 3 in the coronary arteries.[revespcardiol.org] The 3 patients with coronary embolism had suffered previous embolization, 1 in the CNS, 1 in the spleen, and 1 in the legs.[revespcardiol.org]

  • Subacute Bacterial Endocarditis

    Petechiae : Conjunctivae. Hands and feet (dorsum). Chest and abdominal wall. Oral mucosae and soft palate. Splinter or subungual haemorrhages : linear and red.[patient.info]

  • Candidal Endocarditis

    Petechiae : Conjunctivae. Hands and feet (dorsum). Chest and abdominal wall. Oral mucosae and soft palate. Splinter or subungual haemorrhages : linear and red.[patient.info]

  • Infective Endocarditis

    Rocky Mountain spotted fever Scarlet fever Typhus [4] Streptococcal pharyngitis - Petechiae on the soft palate are mainly associated with streptococcal pharyngitis , [5] and[en.wikipedia.org] arterial embolisms.[scielo.br] Left-sided lesions may embolize to any tissue, particularly the kidneys, spleen, and central nervous system. Mycotic aneurysms can form in any major artery.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Bacterial Endocarditis

    Petechiae : Conjunctivae. Hands and feet (dorsum). Chest and abdominal wall. Oral mucosae and soft palate. Splinter or subungual haemorrhages : linear and red.[patient.info] Specifically, four of the patients with chronic liver disease had systemic arterial embolisms (13% of patients with liver disease and 25% of total embolisms) and 12 had pulmonary[revespcardiol.org] Currently, the most common of these is petechiae.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Prosthetic Valve Endocarditis

    Petechiae : Conjunctivae. Hands and feet (dorsum). Chest and abdominal wall. Oral mucosae and soft palate. Splinter or subungual haemorrhages : linear and red.[patient.info]

  • Staphylococcus Aureus

    Pharyngitis, cervical adenitis, strawberry tongue, or palatal petechiae were not seen. Nikolsky’s sign was negative.[cirp.org] Risk of Embolization Systemic embolization occurs in 22% to 50% of cases of IE. 25 80 89 90 Emboli often involve major arterial beds, including lungs, coronary arteries, spleen[doi.org] Up to 65% of embolic events involve the central nervous system, and 90% of central nervous system emboli lodge in the distribution of the middle cerebral artery.[doi.org]

  • Endocarditis

    The subconjunctivial sacs and soft palate should be examined for petechiae, the nail beds for splinter hemorrhages, and digits for Janeway lesions.[the-hospitalist.org] Symptoms are those of systemic arterial embolism. Diagnosis is by echocardiography and negative blood cultures. Treatment consists of anticoagulants.[msdmanuals.com] Petechiae : Conjunctivae. Hands and feet (dorsum). Chest and abdominal wall. Oral mucosae and soft palate. Splinter or subungual haemorrhages : linear and red.[patient.info]

  • Bronchiectasis

    The combined use of thin-section axial scans and more complex reformatted images allows clear depiction of the origins and trajectories of abnormally dilated systemic arteries[web.archive.org] , oculocutaneous telangiectasias, eczema, dermatitis, petechiae, manifestations of endocrinopathy, unexplained failure to thrive, enlargement or absence of lymphoid tissues[patient.info] […] that may be the source of hemorrhage and that may require embolization.[web.archive.org]

  • Splenic Artery Embolism

    Petechiae : Conjunctivae. Hands and feet (dorsum). Chest and abdominal wall. Oral mucosae and soft palate. Splinter or subungual haemorrhages : linear and red.[patient.info] ICD-10-CM Codes › I00-I99 Diseases of the circulatory system › I70-I79 Diseases of arteries, arterioles and capillaries › I74- Arterial embolism and thrombosis › Embolism[icd10data.com] Splenic arterial embolization has been used in the treatment of hypersplenism .[omicsonline.org]
