  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    The same is true for individuals who have low muscle mass for other reasons, such as malnutrition, cachexia, or amputation.[] Uremia Uremia (urine constituents in blood) is a clinical syndrome caused by progressive accumulation of nitrogen waste products among patients with kidney failure who with[] […] products or uremic poisons), and restless legs syndrome; chest pain due to pericarditis (inflammation around the heart); bleeding (due to poor blood clotting); bone pain[]

  • Bronchiectasis

    […] disease (foreign body, adenoma, Tb) allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (proximal bronchiectasis) CLINICAL FEATURES History chronic cough purulent sputum Examination fever cachexia[] Nutrition is an important factor in bronchiectasis patients as pulmonary cachexia can be present in advanced disease.[]

  • Severe Combined Immunodeficiency

  • Adenosine Deaminase Deficiency

    Severe combined immunodeficiency disease (SCID) in patients with adenosine deaminase (ADA) deficiency is thought to result from increased levels of purine metabolites. We attempted to immunosuppress a patient with ADA deficiency and SCID using a continuous infusion of deoxyadenosine to obtain engraftment of a T[…][]

  • Acidosis

    Tachypnea in physiological response to metabolic acidosis can be an early sign.[] Physical examination revealed increased respiration and cachexia. Laboratory tests showed a lactic acid concentration elevated to 6.4 mM.[] Adrenal disorders: Adrenal insufficiency (primary or secondary) (high K ) Pseudoaldosteronism, type 1 Pseudoaldosteronism, type 2 (Gordon's syndrome) D.[]

  • Pulmonary Emphysema

    We report the case of 2-week-old female infant with cystic lung disease who presented with mild tachypnea and had no history of mechanical ventilation.[] Because of low cardiac output, however, the rest of the body suffers from tissue hypoxia and pulmonary cachexia.[] He was admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit with tachypnea and recessions, for which he was started on 5 cm nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP).[]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    Progressive or more serious symptoms may include respiratory distress, tachypnea, cyanosis, use of accessory respiratory muscles, peripheral edema, hyperinflation, chronic[] Because of low cardiac output, however, the rest of the body suffers from tissue hypoxia and pulmonary cachexia.[] Systemic inflammation has been a primary focus of research in the genesis of cachexia and weight loss in COPD.[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Classical symptoms of congestive heart failure and physical findings of tachycardia, tachypnea, rales in the lung bases and jugular venous distention make a diagnosis of cardiomyopathy[] There are five useful clinical signs to establish the presence and severity of cardiomyopathy: general appearance (cachexia and dyspnea at rest indicate severe impairment)[] […] is most common in the first year of life 38–40 with about 20% presenting in the neonatal period. 40 Infants with D CM often present with symptoms of HF 13,39–42 such as tachypnea[]
