108 Possible Causes for Recurrent/Chronic Respiratory Infections, Respiratory Failure, Vertigo

  • Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis

    A 70-year-old female presented with a 6-month history of a productive cough and a 10-day history of arthralgia that progressed to respiratory failure and massive hematochezia[] Signs and symptoms GPA has a spectrum of clinical presentations that includes recurrent respiratory infection in adults and upper and lower respiratory tract problems in children[] Ears: Otitis, sensorineural hearing loss, vertigo, and chondritis may occur. The middle ear, inner ear, and mastoids are often affected.[]

  • Arnold-Chiari Malformation Type 1

    […] persistent hypercapnic chronic respiratory failure.[] Balance difficulties, vertigo and dizziness also may be present. Some people may have cranial nerve compression.[] Since the age of 35, the patient had experienced headaches, oculomotor symptoms like blurred vision and diplopia, tinnitus and vertigo.[]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    Septic shock, respiratory failure, and death ensued, despite aggressive treatment with broad-spectrum antibiotics (for both aerobes and anaerobes), surgical drainage of the[] […] tract infection).[] In severe cases, however, children may have respiratory fatigue that leads to respiratory failure. Hoarseness is a hallmark of laryngeal involvement.[]

  • Pulmonary Disorder

    Respiratory Failure Respiratory failure is the syndrome of inadequate gas exchange i.e, not sufficient oxygen passes from lungs into the blood.[] Symptoms of COPD include: Shortness of breath, especially during physical activity Chronic cough, often with excess mucus Recurrent respiratory infections Wheezing Tightness[] […] critical illnesses (conditions such as shock, respiratory failure, and multiple organ failure).[]

  • Arnold Chiari Malformation

    Abstract We report on the case of a 32-year-old man who was admitted after an episode of acute respiratory failure.[] The main symptoms include ataxia, dizziness, chronic headache, nystagmus, twitching, oropharyngeal dysfunction, recurrent respiratory infections, paresthesia, pyramidal signs[] Adult patients with type 1 CM, may initially present with benign paroxysmal vertigo and could be confused as a trivial benign positional vertigo.[]

  • Iron Deficiency

    , and recurrent upper respiratory tract as well as other infections.[] Typical anemia symptoms include: Fatigue, weakness Irritability Exercise/feeding intolerance Exertional dyspnea Headache, vertigo Pale skin Symptoms of iron deficiency include[] Nonetheless, severe iron deficiency anemia can produce cardiorespiratory failure and may need urgent management.[]

  • Otitis Media

    AOM definition was the presence of MEE, distinct erythema over a bulging or yellow TM, and acute symptoms such as ear pain, fever, or respiratory symptoms.[] These range from a single episode of AOM, recurrent episodes of AOM, otitis media with effusion (OME or ‘glue ear’) and chronic suppurative otitis media.[] Presenting symptoms of the latter condition may include hearing loss, tinnitus, dizziness, vertigo and facial palsy.[]

  • Tracheomalacia

    Abstract Patients with Morquio syndrome can develop respiratory failure secondary to reduced chest wall compliance and airway collapse from irregularly shaped vocal cords[] Patients frequently complain of shortness of breath, chronic cough and recurrent respiratory tract infection, although a causal link is difficult to establish in many cases[] Benign positional vertigo. 4.[]

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    The patient evolved to respiratory and renal failure (without rhabdomyolysis) and was placed under mechanical ventilation and hemodialysis.[] […] lung disease that is characterized by dilation of the airways, persistent cough, chronic sputum production, and recurrent respiratory infections.[] Risk Ratio (M‐H, Fixed, 95% CI) 0.0 [0.0, 0.0] 1.8 Cough 1 Risk Ratio (M‐H, Fixed, 95% CI) 0.0 [0.0, 0.0] 1.9 Coryza 1 Risk Ratio (M‐H, Fixed, 95% CI) 0.0 [0.0, 0.0] 1.10 Vertigo[]

In: Broaddus VC, Mason RJ, Ernst JD, et al, eds.[] A pulmonary syndrome characterized by recurrent respiratory infections, chronic cough, and increased respiratory secretions has also been noted in some individuals.[] Tinnitus or vertigo may occur with salicylate poisoning.[]
