188 Possible Causes for Thickened Subcutaneous Tissue

  • Freeman-Sheldon Syndrome

    Intravenous access may be difficult because of limb deformities and thickened subcutaneous tissues.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Eosinophilic Fasciitis

    Clinical presentation includes peripheral eosinophilia, symmetrical skin thickening with subcutaneous tissue induration of the extremities and rashes developing acutely over[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is characterized by the thickening of the muscular fascia and subcutaneous tissue, with a variable infiltration of eosinophils.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: Ultrasound demonstrated thickening of skin, subcutaneous tissue, and fascia. Muscle echogenicity is abnormal in some cases though not diffusely.[neurology.org]

  • Localized Scleroderma

    Abstract Localized scleroderma (LS) is characterized by excessive collagen deposition leading to thickening of the dermis, subcutaneous tissue or both.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract: Localized scleroderma (LS) is characterized by excessive collagen deposition leading to thickening of the dermis, subcutaneous tissue or both.[eurekaselect.com] Mammography demonstrated thickening of the skin and the subcutaneous tissue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bites and Stings

    Sonographic features of soft tissue angioedema consist of thickened subcutaneous tissue layers with multiple linear, horizontal, striated, and hypoechoic lines following the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present sonographic findings of 4 cases of soft tissue swelling from insect bites and stings suggestive of angioedema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Morphea

    Morphea, also known as localized scleroderma, is a rare disorder characterized by excessive collagen deposition leading to thickening of the skin, subcutaneous tissues, or[patientslikeme.com] tissue induration and thickening due to excessive collagen deposition Pathogenesis Multiple theories of causation, including endothelial cell injury, autoimmune problems,[link.springer.com] Reference work entry DOI: 10.1007/3-540-29668-9_1804 Synonym(s) Localized scleroderma; circumscribed scleroderma Definition Disorder characterized by skin and subcutaneous[link.springer.com]

  • Non-immune Hydrops fetalis

    Pulmonary hypoplasia Non-immune hydrops – Turners syndrome Thickened subcutaneous tissues ( anasarca ) - skin thickness 5mm.[fetalultrasound.com]

  • Proteus Syndrome

    […] skin and subcutaneous tissues, particularly of the hands and feet, including plantar hyperplasia, lipomas, and other unspecified subcutaneous masses.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is not present at birth and is made up of thickened, abnormally firm subcutaneous tissue. The skin may develop deep grooves or furrows.[rarediseases.org] […] suffered from the Proteus syndrome and had the following features compatible with this diagnosis: macrocephaly; hyperostosis of the skull; hypertrophy of long bones; and thickened[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Scleredema Adultorum

    After 4 applications the thickening of skin and subcutaneous tissue moderately diminished, so the range of possible movement of the upper limbs and neck became larger and[muni.cz] […] scle·re·de·ma a·dul·to·'rum a benign spreading induration of the skin and subcutaneous tissue, possibly streptoccocal in origin, that may follow a febrile illness, with nonpitting[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] […] not restricted to adults. scle·re·de·ma a·dul·to·rum ( skler'ĕ-dē'mă ā-dŭl-tōr'ŭm ) A benign spreading induration of the skin and subcutaneous tissue, possibly streptococcal[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Macrocephaly

    subcutaneous tissue and 2/3 syndactyly of the toes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] with body asymmetry including brain asymmetry, developmental delay, typical face with full cheeks, nevus flammeus of the nose and/or philtrum and upper lip, joint laxity, thickened[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cellulitis

    In early cellulitis, there is a diffuse increase in the thickening and echogenicity of the subcutaneous tissue; helpful technique is to compare the tissue with contralateral[radiopaedia.org] Ultrasound showed a local subcutaneous tissue thickening suggestive of cellulitis and antibiotics were initiated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Normally the subcutaneous tissue is hypoechoic with few hyperechoic strands (representing connective tissue).[radiopaedia.org]
