786 Possible Causes for Rhabdomyolysis, Syncope

  • Influenza

    […] be counseled to call for evaluation immediately if the early signs and symptoms of influenza infection (eg, a fever greater than 100 F coupled with shortness of breath, syncope[acog.org] The most severe cases include shock, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), myocarditis, rhabdomyolysis, and multiple organ failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Aspergillus) VAP (Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter baumannii, MRSA, E. coli) ARDS PE Extra-pulmonary Complications pericarditis myocarditis renal failure elevated CK - rhabdomyolysis[lifeinthefastlane.com]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    A 66-year-old man, chronic smoker, presented with episodes of syncope, hypotension and constitutional symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hyponatraemia is often present in association with acute adrenal insufficiency complicated by rhabdomyolysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Of 65 serious AEs reported by 32 patients (20 per 100 patient-years), four were considered to be possibly related to DR-HC: acute AI (n   2), gastritis (n   1) and syncope[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

    Clinicians should be aware of this association when they evaluate syncope in the emergency department, especially in narghile users.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Carbon monoxide mainly affects the central nervous system and the myocardium;renal failure may occur due to rhabdomyolysis and hypoxia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present two patients brought to our emergency department due to a syncopal attack secondary to carbon monoxide toxicity following water pipe use.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heat Stroke

    Individuals with heat stroke were identified and compared to control subjects with mild heat illness such as heat exhaustion, heat edema, heat cramps, and heat syncope.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Unexpectedly severe exertional heat stroke and rhabdomyolysis should prompt a clinician to look for susceptibility to malignant hyperthermia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Heat cramps: Symptoms are painful muscle spasms in the arms, legs, or abdomen Heat syncope (fainting): Symptoms of heat syncope or fainting are Heat exhaustion is a warning[medicinenet.com]

  • Ecstasy

    We report a case of a 37-year-old female with a past medical history of hypertension presenting with syncope and altered mental status who was found to have an acute DeBakey[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The cause of death was a rapidly evolving hyperkalemia due to rhabdomyolysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] More serious complications have also been reported, sometimes even leading to death: hyperthermia, disseminated intravascular coagulopathy, rhabdomyolysis, acute renal failure[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypokalemia

    One patient (a 38-year-old female) had experienced recurrent episodes of syncope due to ventricular tachyarrhythmias (VTAs) accompanied by QT prolongation (QTc: 750ms) when[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Rhabdomyolysis and severe hypokalemia were established as first diagnosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Neuromuscular consequences of hypokalemia include weakness, cramps, rarely paralysis, eventually progressing to rhabdomyolysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Insect Bite

    (passing out) or near-syncope Confusion Hives , especially rapidly occurring large hives Stomach cramps , Nausea and vomiting If the person who has been bitten or stung carries[medicinenet.com] In addition to anaphylaxis, high numbers of simultaneous stings from hymenoptera can rarely cause “intoxication,” with cases of rhabdomyolysis, liver and kidney disease reported[clinicaladvisor.com] […] signs and symptoms indicate the person should receive immediate (emergency) treatment: Shortness of breath Swelling of lips, tongue, or throat Rapid heartbeat Dizziness , syncope[medicinenet.com]

  • Toxic Shock Syndrome

    […] adults or below fifth percentile by age for children less than 16 years of age, orthostatic drop in diastolic blood pressure 15 mm Hg from lying to sitting, orthostatic syncope[lifeinthefastlane.com] Rhabdomyolysis . Acute kidney injury . Encephalopathy and cerebral oedema. Acute respiratory distress syndrome . Hepatic necrosis.[patient.info] […] edema of face, hands and feet, arthralgias, particularly of the wrists, knees, ankles, fingers, and toes, the erythroderma, conjunctival injection, cough, dizziness and syncope[scielo.br]

  • Mushroom Poisoning

    , diarrhea, abdominal pain, hypersalivation, diaphoresis, tachycardia, bradycardia, hypotension, lacrimation, blurred vision, miosis, tremor, restlessness, flushing, and syncope[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mycotoxin may be the cause of rhabdomyolysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The most common symptoms are nausea and vomiting (71 cases, 82%), followed by diarrhea (68%), syncope (10%), abdominal pain (8%), and hallucinations (7%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiac Arrest

    She had a neurally-mediated syncope that progressed to asystole, probably because of concurrent factors as dehydration, beta-blocking and probably individual susceptibility[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After resuscitation, the patient developed multiple organ dysfunction, rhabdomyolysis and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The good news is that research shows CPR does not hurt syncope patients (and might even help), so if you mistake syncope for cardiac arrest, it won't matter.[verywell.com]
