130 Possible Causes for Peripheral Vascular Disease, Tendon Xanthomas

  • Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia

    The condition is characterized by exceptionally high LDL cholesterol levels, cutaneous and tendon xanthomas, and valvular and supravalvular stenosis, and accelerated atherosclerosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Less common are cerebrovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease and aortic aneurysm.[rarediseases.org] Xanthomas The high cholesterol level may result in the build-up of cholesterol deposits in the skin and tendons as well – xanthomas.[aoporphan.com]

  • Heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia

    Sixty-two patients had positive physical examination findings for Achilles tendon xanthomas.[ajronline.org] Those with HeFH have livers that have trouble keeping LDL in check, leaving patients vulnerable to coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease[patientworthy.com] Less frequently, HeFH manifests in cerebral or peripheral vascular disease.[symptoma.com]

  • Familial Hyperlipidemia

    His physical exam is normal and there is no tendon xanthomas or corneal arcus. Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is suspected.[knowledge.statpearls.com] 2 Patient with premature* cerebral or peripheral vascular disease 1 Physical examination Tendinous xanthomata 6 Arcus cornealis prior to age 45 years 4 Cholesterol level,[mdcalc.com] Less common are cerebrovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease and aortic aneurysm.[rarediseases.org]

  • Familial Hypercholesterolemia

    The case presented here is of a 48-year old male with large tendon xanthomas attributable to CTX.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Complications may include: Heart attack at an early age Heart disease Stroke Peripheral vascular disease Seek medical care right away if you have chest pain or other warning[nlm.nih.gov] […] or peripheral vascular disease.[rarediseases.org]

  • Hypercholesterolemia

    Xanthomas are noted commonly on the Achilles tendons and metacarpal phalangeal extensor tendons of the hands.[emedicine.medscape.com] 2 Patient with premature* cerebral or peripheral vascular disease 1 Physical examination Tendinous xanthomata 6 Arcus cornealis prior to age 45 years 4 Cholesterol level,[mdcalc.com] These symptoms can include chest pain, heart attack, stroke, and/or peripheral vascular disease.[invitae.com]

  • Hyperlipidemia

    Adults may also have xanthomas either on the skin or in their tendons.[symptoma.com] Longstanding elevated cholesterol is typically associated with cardiovascular disease and therefore, can lead to heart attack, stroke and/or peripheral vascular disease.[shcs.ucdavis.edu] It is characterized by the early onset of cardiovascular disease and peripheral vascular disease.[en.wikipedia.org]
