  • Allergic Asthma

    It is characterized by chronic airway inflammation, reversible airway obstruction, airway hyper-responsiveness, and ultimately airway tissue remodeling.[biomodels.com] Abstract Allergic asthma, caused by inhaled allergens such as house dust mite or grass pollen, is characterized by reversible airway obstruction, associated with an eosinophilic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyperactive Airway Disease

    […] hyperreactivity or some sort of reversible airway obstruction.[en.wikipedia.org] When the patient is well again and if they are old enough to cooperate, you can consider pulmonary function testing to look for reversible airway obstruction. #4 Have a fancy[forums.studentdoctor.net] The hallmarks of asthma are reversible airway obstruction from bronchial smooth muscle contraction, mucus hypersecretion, and mucosal edema.[womenshealthsection.com]

  • Mediastinal Neoplasm

    Abstract A case of giant cell tumor of the thoracic spine simulating mediastinal neoplasm was identified on plain films, CT scans, MR images, and with scintigraphy. CT showed a hypervascular soft-tissue mass with shell-like calcification in the right upper mediastinum. MR imaging showed a collapse of the T1 vertebral[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aortic Dilation

    BACKGROUND: Mutations in the genes ENG, ACVRL1 and SMAD4 that are part of the transforming growth factor-beta signalling pathway cause hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT). Mutations in non-HHT genes within this same pathway have been found to associate with aortic dilation. Therefore, we investigated[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    Abstract A 39-year-old man was hospitalized with a history of fatigue, dyspnoea and low grade fever which seemed to be related to his working environment. The patient was employed in a salami factory, working near the area where the salami are seasoned with fungal inocula. Chest X-ray showed diffuse initial[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Byssinosis

    They are reversible in the early stages, but prolonged exposure results in chronic airway obstruction, bronchitis, and emphysema with fibrosis, leading to respiratory failure[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Treatment Therapy for early-stage byssinosis focuses on reversing airway narrowing. Antihistamines may be prescribed to reduce tightness in the chest.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Obstructive patterns are likely in patients who have had recurrent symptoms for more than 10 years.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
