103 Possible Causes for Vaso-Occlusive Crisis

  • Sickle Cell Disease

    The condition was therefore interpreted as a massive intestinal vaso-occlusive crisis or "girdle syndrome".[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] vaso-occlusive crisis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He was diagnosed as having orbital compression syndrome secondary to vaso-occlusive crisis of sickle cell disease and was treated with intravenous ampicilin-sulbactam and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sickle Cell Crisis

    Trottier, Nancy Robitaille, Yves Pastore, Marie-Joelle Dore Bergeron and Benoit Bailey, Oral morphine protocol evaluation for the treatment of vaso-occlusive crisis in paediatric[doi.org] A vaso-occlusive crisis is a common painful complication of sickle cell anemia in adolescents and adults. It is a form of sickle cell crisis.[en.wikipedia.org] Fever accompanying vaso-occlusive crisis is a common presentation in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) and carries a broad differential diagnosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anticardiolipin Antibody Syndrome

    The anticardiolipin antibody syndrome has been previously associated with seven cases of gastrointestinal ischemia involving the duodenum, jejunoileum, or colon. In prior cases patients presented with gastrointestinal bleeding, abdominal pain, or an acute abdomen without gastrointestinal perforation. A patient with[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hemolytic Transfusion Reaction

    All but 1 patient experienced pain initially ascribed to vaso-occlusive crisis. The DAT was positive in only 2 of the 9 episodes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] crisis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This syndrome is generally underdiagnosed because its biological and clinical features resemble those of vaso-occlusive crisis, and red blood cell antibodies are frequently[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hemoglobin SC Disease

    Symptoms of hemoglobin SC disease include anemia and episodes of fatigue and extreme pain ( vaso-occlusive crisis ).[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] Clinical History Pain is the most common presentation of vaso-occlusive crisis.[web.archive.org] Vaso-occlusive crises Pain A vaso-occlusive crisis occurs when the microcirculation is obstructed by sickled RBCs, causing ischemic injury to the organ supplied and is clinically[web.archive.org]

  • Anemia

    This occurred after full recovery from acute chest syndrome and severe vaso-occlusive crisis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This clinical consequences of this pathophysiology, termed vaso-occlusive crisis (VOC), include pain crisis, respiratory insufficiency (“acute chest syndrome”), and strokes[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] effects on endothelium, inflammatory cells, and plasma proteins, promote the adherence of sickled RBCs to each other and to the inner lining of small blood vessels, causing vaso-occlusion[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hemoglobin C Disease

    Abstract Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) complicated a vaso-occlusive crisis in a patient with sickle cell-hemoglobin C (HbSC) disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The potential for multiorgan involvement secondary to vaso-occlusive crisis complicated the diagnosis and overlapped with the patient's clinical presentation of chronic bone[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms of hemoglobin SC disease include anemia and episodes of fatigue and extreme pain ( vaso-occlusive crisis ).[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]

  • Benign Migratory Glossitis

    […] or painful (vaso-occlusive) types leading to devastating multisystem complications, including stroke, pulmonary disease, delayed growth, osteomyelitis, organ damage and psychosocial[ijdr.in] […] characteristic sickle shape that may plug different areas of the microcirculation or large vessels. [11] The hallmark features of sickle cell disease are chronic hemolytic anemia and vaso-occlusion[ijdr.in] […] resulting in ischemic tissue injury. [11] While a wide spectrum of complications result from these, the major manifestation of concern is "sickle crisis" of aplastic, hemolytic[ijdr.in]

  • Transfusion Reaction

    Notably, 11/23 (47·8%) of DHTRs were not diagnosed at the time of the event, most were misdiagnosed as a vaso-occlusive crisis. 16/23 DHTRs had 'relative reticulocytopenia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a patient with SCD who presented with vaso-occlusive sickle cell crisis and developed a severe HHTR attributable to anti-Fy3.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient was admitted for vaso-occlusive sickle cell crisis and received 4 units of packed RBCs secondary to worsening symptomatic anemia (Hb 5.0 g/dL).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
