143 Possible Causes for Thymus Hyperplasia

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    Jing Yang, Chanchan Liu, Tao Li and Chengyan Li , Prognosis of thymectomy in myasthenia gravis patients with thymus hyperplasia , International Journal of Neuroscience , 127[doi.org] The thymus of a myasthenia gravis (MG) patient is often accompanied by and effected with follicular hyperplasia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A total of 526 AChR MG patients, including 132 patients with normal (involuted) thymus, 146 patients with thymic hyperplasia, and 248 patients with a thymoma were included[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Oculoglandular Tularemia

  • Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve Palsy

    This case illustrates the unique risk of left recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy in pediatric patients with an acute immune stimulation and hyperplasia of the thymus and the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] hyperplasia, resulting in distension of the nerve.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Attenuation of the hyperactive immune process with methimazole may have resulted in regression of the mass effect of the thymus and associated reduction of the nerve distension[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thymic Aplasia

    Codes E32 Diseases of thymus E32.0 Persistent hyperplasia of thymus E32.1 Abscess of thymus E32.8 Other diseases of thymus E32.9 Disease of thymus, unspecified[icd10data.com] Two morphological types exist—true hyperplasia and lymphofollicular hyperplasia. True hyperplasia is characterized by an increase in both size and weight of the thymus.[fetalultrasound.com] After fibrofatty atrophy, the thymus can grow back at any time in life, particularly after periods of stress. thymic rebound thymic epithelial tumors thymic hyperplasia DiGeorge[radiopaedia.org]

  • Thymectomy

    Because of its connections with the immune system, myasthenia gravis sometimes produces a greatly enlarged thymus (hyperplasia), which in turn is prone to become affected[laparoscopic.md] […] by thymoma, a cancer of the internal surface cells of the thymus.[laparoscopic.md] BACKGROUND: In parathyroid hyperplasia (HPT), parathyroid glands within the cervical thymus are a cause for recurrence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Adrenal Cortical Adenoma

    In addition, she manifested hyperplasia of the thymus, fibrous hyperplasia of the bladder, and hamartoma in the liver. However, all abnormalities were asymptomatic.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    We report on a well-defined LEMS associated with thymus hyperplasia in a SLE patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Following thymectomy, the thymus gland showed thymic hyperplasia typical of MG, and the patient responded to treatment with 3,4-diaminopyridine and pyridostigmine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The tumour was surgically removed with a final diagnosis of follicular thymic hyperplasia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • PTEN Hamartoma Tumor Syndrome

    We describe a therapeutic attempt with the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitor sirolimus for a PHTS patient suffering from thymus hyperplasia and lipomatosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Gigantism

    hyperplasia; cryptorchidism; generalized muscle hypotonia; and a distinctive facial appearance.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract We report on a neonate presenting with polyhydramnios; macrosomia; macrocephaly; visceromegaly including bilateral nephromegaly, hepatomegaly, cardiomegaly; thymus[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome

    Hyperplasia neonatal myasthenia gravis sleep apnea[rgd.mcw.edu] hyperplasia Acquired MG: Genetic Associations Reduction in number of AChRs at NMJs and Paucity of Secondary Synaptic Clefts Presynaptic defects in ACh synthesis, mobilization[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] Acetylcholine Receptor Deficiency Experimental Autoimmune Myasthenia Gravis Limb-Girdle Myasthenia, Autoimmune Limb-Girdle Myasthenia, with Tubular Aggregates Myasthenia Gravis with Thymus[rgd.mcw.edu]
