15 Possible Causes for Swelling of Smooth Muscle Cells

  • Gastropathy

    Nerve cells may swell with the loss of myelinated fibers, and smooth muscle cells may become rounded and hyalinized.[journal.diabetes.org]

  • Status Asthmaticus

    Etiology • Acute Bronchospastic component marked by smooth muscle bronchoconstriction. • Later inflammatory airway swelling and edema 6.[de.slideshare.net] Physiologically, acute asthma has two components: an early, acute bronchospastic aspect marked by smooth muscle bronchoconstriction and a later inflammatory component resulting[emedicine.medscape.com] Early bronchospastic response • Exposure to allergen • Mast cell degranulation • Release of histamine, PGD2, LT-C4 • airway smooth muscle contraction, increased capillary[de.slideshare.net]

  • Leiomyosarcoma

    Leiomyosarcoma is an aggressive soft tissue sarcoma derived from smooth muscle cells typically of uterine, gastrointestinal or soft tissue origin.[gii.co.jp] Symptoms include a noticeable lump or swelling, pain, if it presses on nerves or muscles and a blockage in the stomach or intestines or gastrointestinal bleeding if the tumor[gii.co.jp]

  • Angiomyolipoma

    Microscopy revealed a well-circumscribed tumor, composed of an admixture of mature adipocytes, blood vessels, and bundles of smooth muscles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Here, we report a case in a 36-year-old man who presented with a painless swelling on his right ear.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The tumor cells were positive for desmin and calponin but negative for HMB45, melan-A, SOX10, tyrosinase, and CD10.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fabry Disease

    Specifically, deposits in lysosomes of endothelial, perithelial, and smooth muscle cells of blood vessels cause swelling into the hollow bore of the blood vessel.[dermaamin.com]

  • Nasal Polyp

    […] of histamine to its receptors or reducing histamine receptor activity on nerves, vascular smooth muscle, glandular cells, endothelium, and mast cells.[en.wikipedia.org] Histamine also promotes angiogenesis. [6] Antihistamines suppress the histamine-induced wheal response (swelling) and flare response (vasodilation) by blocking the binding[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Familial Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

    Nitric Oxide Studies in the Cath Lab In order to determine whether or not there is a vasodilatory effect in the smooth muscle cells of the pulmonary arteries when nitric oxide[cathlabdigest.com] Symptoms may include shortness of breath, excessive fatigue, dizziness, weakness, ankle swelling, syncope and chest pain.[cathlabdigest.com]

  • Congenital Absence of Ductus Arteriosus

    Subsequent to this constriction, the ductal endothelial cells detach, the subendothelial region swells leading to the formation of subintimal cushions, and the smooth muscle[ojrd.biomedcentral.com] muscle cells [ 13 ].[ojrd.biomedcentral.com] cells migrate to the duct region, resulting in complete ductal closure and formation of the ductal ligament [ 14 ].[ojrd.biomedcentral.com]
