264 Possible Causes for Scoliosis, Snoring

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    PATIENT CONCERNS: The patient was a 17-year-old girl with growth retardation, hearing loss, and severe skeletal dysplasia(scoliosis and chicken breast), and was evaluated[] […] patient had severe infantile global neurodevelopmental delays, macrocephaly with a prominent forehead, coarse facial features with clear corneas, chronic congestion with snoring[] Affected individuals usually present with unusual skeletal features including short trunk dwarfism, odontoid hypoplasia, pectus carinatum, kyphosis, gibbus, scoliosis, genu[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 4A

    MPS-IVA commonly manifests in form of kyphosis or gibbus, scoliosis, pectus carinatum, genu valgum, gait disturbances and frequent falls, but the clinical presentation varies[] Skeletal deformities (platyspondyly, kyphosis, scoliosis, pectus carinatum , genu valgum , long bone deformities) become more pronounced as the child grows.[] History of snoring, daytime somnolence and stridor may indicate airway obstruction [10] . History of snoring was present in our case.[]

  • Obesity

    […] syndrome is likely to present a particular challenge to the anaesthetist. 56 Features of the syndrome include hypotonia, mental retardation, obesity, diabetes mellitus, scoliosis[] It also causes heavy snoring. Respiratory problems associated with obesity occur when added weight of the chest wall squeezes the lungs and causes restricted breathing.[] Barthel and Marshall Strome , SNORING, OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA, AND SURGERY , Medical Clinics of North America , 83 , 1 , (85) , (1999) .

  • Deviated Nasal Septum

    […] deviated septum [here's an example: Deviated Septum ] in a medical text I'm studying for a course I'm taking, I noticed that it reminded me of the exaggerated S-curve of scoliosis[] Some patients had associated pre-operative symptoms of snoring (57.3%), headache (48.0%), rhinorrhoea (38.7%), sneezing (30.7%), hyposmia (30.7%) and epistaxis (21.3%).[] Scoliosis The most common skeletal manifestation is scoliosis, seen to some degree, in at least 60% of patients ( 13 ).[]

  • Sleep Apnea Syndrome

    […] disorders such as postpolio syndrome can result in inadequate neuromuscular control of the upper airway and lead to obstructive sleep apnea. 23 Restrictive lung disease from scoliosis[] Snoring Studies have shown that up to 50% of adults snore. It is not very common in children, but it does occur.[] Treatments for snoring in adults Summary Snoring is a symptom and sign of airway obstruction.Treatments for snoring should be based on the degree of associated sleep disordered[]

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    […] disorders such as postpolio syndrome can result in inadequate neuromuscular control of the upper airway and lead to obstructive sleep apnea. 23 Restrictive lung disease from scoliosis[] A progressive neuropathy of the soft palate and pharyngeal dilators may be associated with the progression of snoring to OSA.[] The implants will prevent snoring or otherwise reduce the snoring.[]

  • Marfan Syndrome

    Patients typically have associated problems in addition to scoliosis.[] Snoring Snoring is caused by the vibrations of the soft tissues at the back of the nose and throat while a person sleeps. There are many...[] Snoring severity was quantified as the number of snoring events per hour of study.[]

  • Central Sleep Apnea

    OSA also was found to be more common in obese survivors with normal lung function, whereas hypoventilation was found to be more common in those survivors with scoliosis, restrictive[] The patient had a body mass index of 32.4kg/m2, and complained of fatigue, shortness of breath on exertion, excessive daytime sleepiness, and snoring.[] Family members may tell you that you stop breathing at night and snore excessively.[]

  • Bruxism

    (Click/tap heading to read more.) for pain: anywhere in the upper back, mainly between the shoulder blades related to: scoliosis muscle(s): erector spinae muscle group 12[] Habitual snoring and sleep bruxism were closely related. Further studies into this relationship is needed.[] Muscle pain, snoring, and mouth breathing were important signals associated with possible sleep bruxism among children.[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 4

    Children may develop: A pronounced curvature of the spine (i.e. scoliosis or kyphosis) Cloudy corneas of the eyes A heart murmur Inguinal hernia Liver enlargement Loss of[] […] short neck with limited mobility, hyromental and thyromentonian distance less than 6 cm, severely limited jaw protrusion, mouth opening inferior to 6 cm, mallampati IV and snoring[] Signs of respiratory compromise, such as limited endurance, frequent respiratory tract infections, sleep apnea, and snoring, are common in MPS IVA [ 24 ].[]
