  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[emedicine.com] Ears: Otitis, sensorineural hearing loss, vertigo, and chondritis may occur. The middle ear, inner ear, and mastoids are often affected.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Arnold-Chiari Malformation Type 1

    […] persistent hypercapnic chronic respiratory failure.[mrmjournal.biomedcentral.com] Balance difficulties, vertigo and dizziness also may be present. Some people may have cranial nerve compression.[asap.org] Since the age of 35, the patient had experienced headaches, oculomotor symptoms like blurred vision and diplopia, tinnitus and vertigo.[f1000research.com]

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] tract infection).[bmj.com] In severe cases, however, children may have respiratory fatigue that leads to respiratory failure. Hoarseness is a hallmark of laryngeal involvement.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Pulmonary Disorder

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

  • 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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The main symptoms include ataxia, dizziness, chronic headache, nystagmus, twitching, oropharyngeal dysfunction, recurrent respiratory infections, paresthesia, pyramidal signs[mrmjournal.biomedcentral.com] Adult patients with type 1 CM, may initially present with benign paroxysmal vertigo and could be confused as a trivial benign positional vertigo.[symptoma.com]

  • Iron Deficiency

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

  • 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.[doi.org] 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.[gponline.com] Presenting symptoms of the latter condition may include hearing loss, tinnitus, dizziness, vertigo and facial palsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tracheomalacia

    Abstract Patients with Morquio syndrome can develop respiratory failure secondary to reduced chest wall compliance and airway collapse from irregularly shaped vocal cords[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[radiopaedia.org] Benign positional vertigo. 4.[slideshare.net]

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    The patient evolved to respiratory and renal failure (without rhabdomyolysis) and was placed under mechanical ventilation and hemodialysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] lung disease that is characterized by dilation of the airways, persistent cough, chronic sputum production, and recurrent respiratory infections.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[doi.org]

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