111 Possible Causes for Pleurisy, Retrosternal Chest Pain, Tachycardia

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Pulmonary embolism (PE) represents a clinical challenge for clinicians because of nonspecific presentations, including dyspnea, chest pain, and tachycardia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It can mimic pneumonia, congestive heart failure, and a viral illness known as pleurisy.[vascularcures.org] Pleuritic chest pain, retrosternal chest pain. Cough and haemoptysis. Any chest symptoms in a patient with symptoms suggesting a deep vein thrombosis (DVT).[patient.info]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Bidirectional ventricular tachycardia (BVT) is a rare ventricular tachyarrhythmia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 34-year-old woman was taken to the Emergency Department of our hospital, presenting with a sudden onset and persistent retrosternal chest pain radiating to both upper extremities[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CASE REPORT A 72-year-old male was admitted to our department with a chief complaint of intermittent retrosternal chest pain and was diagnosed with extensive anterior myocardial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pericarditis

    BACKGROUND: Pericardial adhesions can prevent epicardial access and restrict catheter movement during mapping and ablation of ventricular tachycardia (VT).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The pain is typically relieved by leaning forwards The differentials for this type of pain are basically pleurisy and pericarditis Fever – a low grade fever may be present[almostadoctor.co.uk] We report a rare case of a mediastinal malignant granular cell tumor in a 41-year-old man presenting with dyspnea, retrosternal chest pain, and recurrent pericardial effusion[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    […] pregnancy and older age Small infarcts usually have minimal symptoms; if bronchial circulation is inadequate (so reduced collateral circulation), then have shortness of breath, tachycardia[pathologyoutlines.com] . - Overlying pleura shows patches of fibrinous pleurisy due to irritation. - With time the center of the infarct becomes brown and eventually pale as the hemorrhage breaks[histopathology-india.net] […] suspicious of a pulmonary infarction if the patient is experiencing hemoptysis or chest pain, or if the physical exam shows evidence of a very large embolus (in particular, if tachycardia[verywell.com]

  • Acute Pericarditis

    On physical examination, she had tachycardia, hepatomegaly, and muffled heart sounds.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The pain is typically relieved by leaning forwards The differentials for this type of pain are basically pleurisy and pericarditis Fever – a low grade fever may be present[almostadoctor.co.uk] After 90 hours of 5-fluorouracil infusion, he developed severe retrosternal chest pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dressler Syndrome

    Dressler beat - presence of Dressler beats strongly supporting the diagnosis of ventricular tachycardia by interruption of it.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Complications Pleuritic pain may be associated with pleurisy and pleural effusion . Significant pericardial effusion can cause cardiac tamponade .[patient.info] Auscultation of the lungs can show crackles indicating pulmonary infiltration, and there can be retrosternal/pleuritic chest pain worse on inspiration (breathing in).[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Aspiration Pneumonia

    Chemical pneumonia The physical symptoms of this type of pneumonia range from tachypnea, tachycardia, wheezing or cyanosis.[symptoma.com] […] increased fluids (3l/day), thin up mucous, increased RR, and to replace insensible losses, antipyretics, fever, analgesics (chest pain), antiemtic (gerd,proton pump inhibitor) -Pleurisy[quizlet.com] Hereby we report a patient hospitalized due to aspiration pneumonia who developed pleurisy and pneumothorax after drinking paint thinner.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    We describe the case of an 82-year-old man with pulmonary tuberculosis and tuberculous pleurisy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Inflammation of the lung parenchyma adjacent to a pleural surface may cause pleuritic pain.[southsudanmedicaljournal.com] Berger HW, Mejei E: Tuberculous pleurisy. Chest 1973;63:88–92. PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar 2.[link.springer.com]

  • Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis

    The event was associated with multiple episodes of sustained ventricular tachycardia without any structural heart changes or electrolyte disturbances.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (B) Multiple ventricular tachycardias in intensive care unit monitoring. (C) Same patient post-transvenous temporary pacing.[rbti.org.br] 2017;29(3):386-390 CASE REPORTS 10.5935/0103-507X.20170052 Heart conduction system defects and sustained ventricular tachycardia complications in a patient with granulomatosis[rbti.org.br]

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    Some of the other symptoms of bacterial pneumonia are yperthermia or hypothermia, tachypnea, tachycardia, central cyanosis, and mental impairment.[symptoma.com] ICD-10-CM J15.9 is grouped within Diagnostic Related Group(s) (MS-DRG v 36.0): 193 Simple pneumonia and pleurisy with mcc 194 Simple pneumonia and pleurisy with cc 195 Simple[icd10data.com] Shortness of breath or breathlessness Chest pain is usually a result of extreme coughing and may cause difficulty in breathing as well Fast heartbeat , also referred to as tachycardia[md-health.com]
