330 Possible Causes for Pharyngeal Edema

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    , periorbital edema, and lymphadenopathy (which often involves the posterior cervical chain). 2 It may also be associated with hepatomegaly and splenomegaly.[] Characteristic clinical features of EBV IM include bilateral upper lid edema, exudative or nonexudative pharyngitis, bilateral posterior cervical adenopathy, and splenomegaly[] […] secretions. 5 Signs and symptoms Usually beginning 4 to 8 weeks after infection, common signs and symptoms of infectious mononucleosis include malaise, anorexia, fever, pharyngitis[]

  • Pharyngitis

    edema and lymphadenopathy; abnormal lateral neck radiography Address correspondence to John Pease, MD, at [email protected] .[] We have seen our otolaryngology colleagues prescribe steroids postoperatively for edema and pain.[] EER causes laryngeal and pharyngeal erythema with edema of the vocal cords and false vocal cords, larynx, and pharynx.[]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    Pathogenesis As with common cold, viral pathogens in pharyngitis appear to invade the mucosal cells of the nasopharynx and oral cavity, resulting in edema and hyperemia of[]

  • Corynebacterium Diphtheriae

    Intubation may be difficult given pharyngeal edema and friability, and, in some cases, tracheostomy is needed.[] Both can be primary infection sites or extensions of a pharyngeal infection.[] Some patients exhibit a classic “bull neck” due to severe pharyngeal edema and involvement of the tonsils, submandibular lymph nodes, uvula, and anterior neck.[]

  • Iodine Poisoning

    Pharyngeal swelling and glottic edema have been reported.[] Inhalation of iodine vapor can cause severe pulmonary irritation, which can lead to pulmonary edema. Skin and eye exposures may result in severe corrosive burns.[]

  • Foreign Body in the Pharynx

  • Smoke Inhalation Injury

    Airway edema increases over 12-18 hours after injury and early recognition of airway deterioration from mild pharyngeal edema to complete airway obstruction is important.9[] The injury may be obvious, with clinical signs including pharyngeal or laryngeal edema, wheezing, stridor, hoarseness, respiratory distress, and cough yielding carbonaceous[] Endotracheal intubation is indicated in patients who have evidence of upper airway edema, decreased mental status, and signs of deteriorating respiratory status.[]

  • Streptococcal Infection

    Pharyngitis Physical findings of pharyngitis include erythema, edema, and swelling of the pharynx. The tonsils are enlarged, and a grayish white exudate may be present.[] These lesions commonly produce vasodilatation, spreading edema, and an exudate composed mostly of neutrophils, often mixed with macrophages.[] Scarlet fever used to be a serious complication of streptococcal pharyngitis, but with the use of antibiotics, it is not considered an important threat today.[]
