748 Possible Causes for Peripheral Neuropathy, Progressive Dysphagia

  • Esophageal Carcinoma

    Both of our patients had common symptoms of progressive dysphagia and significant weight loss at presentation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Progressive dysphagia and weight loss are the most recognizable symptoms. The prognosis depends upon the stage of the tumor.[symptoma.com] The clinical features commonly seen in the patients of esophageal carcinoma include the following: Progressive dysphagia: Dysphagia in esophageal carcinomas is at first intermittent[symptoma.com]

  • Lipoma

    An 87-year-old man, who had been experiencing progressive dysphagia and slight chest discomfort for 12 months, presented for an esophagram with a diagnosis of achalasia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Peripheral neuropathy may be associated. Screening for these associated medical problems should be undertaken.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Cyclophosphamide

    The refractoriness of this disease was characterised by an increase of the already severe muscle wasting that led to respiratory failure and progressive dysphagia, regardless[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 49-year-old woman was hospitalized with progressively worsening left-sided weakness, dysphagia, diplopia, and vertigo.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Radiation Esophagitis

    The formation of esophageal strictures from fibrotic changes is the main factor for the development of symptoms in these patients, most important being progressive dysphagia[symptoma.com] neuropathy) Cancer.Net/ASCO (peripheral neuropathy) Related[integrativeoncology-essentials.com] Progressive dysphagia for solids is the most common presenting symptom. This may progress to include liquids.[gastrointestinalatlas.com]
