Capillary Fragility

Capillaries Fragile


Presentation

  • Abstract A case of petechiae formation associated with recurrent idiopathic angioedema is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Severe, deep, venous incompetence was present. The VSC was applied onto the internal perimalleolar region. Negative pressure was applied for a variable period of 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 minutes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Given the patient’s recent travel history, reported mosquito bites, and clinical presentation, suspicion for an arbovirus infection was high.[amjmed.org]
  • Funding and Disclosures * Presented at the annual meeting of the Massachusetts Medical Society, Boston, May 23, 1946. From the Department of Dermatology, Mt.[nejm.org]
  • The omega 3 fatty acids, present in fatty fish, have also been shown to be a food that moisturizes our damaged hair. Biotin and vitamin B12 help strengthen and condition the hair, its deficiency makes the hair look weak and brittle.[drpanno.com]
Ankle Edema
  • All included patients had important ankle edema due to venous hypertension because of a post-thrombotic syndrome. Severe, deep, venous incompetence was present. The VSC was applied onto the internal perimalleolar region.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Vascular Disease
  • […] in diabetic vascular disease; hypertension; participation in violent sports (participant should have normal readings before permitted to take part); to determine beneficial or adverse effect of new or old drugs on capillary tree; in all hemortrhages[google.com]
  • You are more likely to have vascular disease as you get older.[icdlist.com]
  • In the United States, rutin has been considered as an official medication in the treatment of capillary haemorrhages caused by fragility of the blood capillaries in instances of degenerative vascular diseases, diabetes and allergic manifestation.[etatpur.co.uk]
Arthralgia
  • A 42-year-old Hispanic woman with no known medical history presented to the hospital with subjective fevers, rash, and arthralgias 5 days after returning to the US from Honduras.[amjmed.org]
Purpura
  • A rare, but serious, cause of purpura is Henoch-Schenlein purpura, which may follow an upper respiratory tract infection that damages the blood vessels.[diet-and-health.net]
  • This resulted in a significant improvement of symptoms of capillary fragility (spontaneous ecchymosis, epistaxis, purpura, petechiae, gingivorrhagia, metrorrhagia and conjunctival haemorrhage) in S 5682 treated patients (p 0.001).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • , liver disease, measles, polycythemia vera, prothrombin deficiency, scarlet fever, Stachybotrys chartarum fungus, thrombocytopenia, scurvy, vascular purpura, vitamin K deficiency, and von Willebrand's disease.[minclinic.ru]
  • […] and other haemorrhagic conditions Excludes: benign hypergammaglobulinaemic purpura ( D89.0 ) cryoglobulinaemic purpura ( D89.1 ) essential (haemorrhagic) thrombocythaemia ( D47.3 ) purpura fulminans ( D65 ) thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura ( M31.1[apps.who.int]
  • ( D47.3 ) purpura fulminans ( D65 ) thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura ( M31.1 ) Waldenström hypergammaglobulinemic purpura ( D89.0 ) Purpura and other hemorrhagic conditions Approximate Synonyms Capillary fragility abnormality Clinical Information[icd10data.com]
Angioedema
  • Abstract A case of petechiae formation associated with recurrent idiopathic angioedema is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Maculopapular Rash
  • Examination was notable for a diffuse maculopapular rash on the trunk and extremities that spared the palms and soles, scattered petechiae in the upper palate, and mild synovitis in the metacarpophalangeal and proximal interphalangeal joints bilaterally[amjmed.org]
Suggestibility
  • The persistence of the increased capillary fragility during the long, symptom-free intervals between acute episodes of angioedema suggests that the capillary fragility is unrelated to the pathologic process responsible for the angioedema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This suggests that higher values in elderly patients may be related to the high prevalence of arteriosclerosis rather than to age itself.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It is suggested that this phenomenon may be associated with impairment of neurophysiological functions detectable only by special tests.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract It has been suggested that growth hormone (GH) plays a role in the regulation of Factor VIII-von Willebrand factor complex and other parameters associated with haemostasis and vascular integrity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • DISCLAIMER; The information contained within each condition are suggested nutritional formulas based on customer feedback and what many use to nutritionally support the body.[optimalhealthsystems.com]
Irritability
  • This increased resistance to suction applied to the surface of the skin is doubtless caused by contraction of blood vessels following injection of the irritant.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Scalp irritation also causes capillary fragility and hair loss. When the skin around the hair follicles becomes inflamed, it weakens the root and increases its vulnerability.[drpanno.com]
Metrorrhagia
  • This resulted in a significant improvement of symptoms of capillary fragility (spontaneous ecchymosis, epistaxis, purpura, petechiae, gingivorrhagia, metrorrhagia and conjunctival haemorrhage) in S 5682 treated patients (p 0.001).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

Normal Chest X-Ray
  • Laboratories including complete blood counts, electrolytes, creatinine, liver function tests, coagulation studies, complements, rheumatoid factor, and antinuclear antibodies were normal. Chest x-ray and urinalysis were similarly unremarkable.[amjmed.org]

Treatment

  • All variables remained within the reference range following both the placebo and the GH treatment period.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In the verum treatment the amount of petechiae as well as the petechiae area is already significantly lower after 7 days than in the initial examination. A decrease of the values in the placebo treatment cannot be detected.[link.springer.com]
  • […] capillary fragility was greatest in those receiving more than 50 units daily and least in those receiving less than 25 units daily.Capillary fragility measurement by this method may be of value in assessment, prognosis, and studying the response to treatment[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Treatment lasted 6 weeks and consisted of 2 daily tablets of either S 5682 or placebo. Patients were examined at weeks 0, 2, 4 and 6.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • […] or on diet alone, and in the first group capillary fragility was greatest in those receiving more than 50 units daily and least in those receiving less than 25 units daily.Capillary fragility measurement by this method may be of value in assessment, prognosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Capillary fragility measurement by this method may be of value in assessment, prognosis, and studying the response to treatment in diabetes.[bmj.com]

Pathophysiology

  • The Rumpel-Leede sign in our patient with Zika virus infection may indicate a similar pathophysiologic mechanism. Clarifying this mechanism may help elucidate the pathogenesis of manifestations of Zika virus infection.[amjmed.org]
