Capillary Fragility

Capillaries Fragile


Presentation

  • A case of petechiae formation associated with recurrent idiopathic angioedema is presented.[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]
  • Related tests are grouped by chapter and presented in a consistent format to facilitate a full understanding of each type of diagnostic test. UNIQUE![books.google.com]
  • The present significant figures are however now considered as standardized and have been found to be very useful.[google.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]
Lymphedema
  • PCOs are believed to improve capillary stability, and are used for venous insufficiency, liver cirrhosis, diabetic retinopathy, postsurgical lymphedema, postoperative facial edema, sports injury related edema, repeated ecchymoses, and purpuric syndromes[diet-and-health.net]
Rhinitis
  • PCOs are also used for aging skin, Macular Degeneration, allergic rhinitis, and Atherosclerosis. Additionally, they are promoted as general antioxidants.[diet-and-health.net]
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]
  • CAPILLARITIS OF UNKNOWN CAUSE These are vascular diseases of undetermined cause with different manifestations and share the same histopathological features.[drmhijazy.com]
Arthritis
  • This test has usefulness in connection with the following, for example: Elective surgery (withhold surgery until P-Reading is normal); to determine progress of treatment in cardio-vascular disease; rheumatic fever; rheumatoid arthritis; limited assistance[google.com]
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]
  • . • In bruising rashes (called purpura) brought on by infection, reactions to medications, or other allergic reactions, which all act to make the capillaries fragile, vitamin E seems to speed clearance of the rash.[naturalreliefs.com]
  • […] 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]
Angioedema
  • A case of petechiae formation associated with recurrent idiopathic angioedema is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Thin Skin
  • . • A deficiency in zinc may contribute to the fragility of blood vessels in the thinned skin of older people. Recommendation: 100 mg chelated zinc daily for 3 to 6 months.[naturalreliefs.com]
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]
Facial Edema
  • PCOs are believed to improve capillary stability, and are used for venous insufficiency, liver cirrhosis, diabetic retinopathy, postsurgical lymphedema, postoperative facial edema, sports injury related edema, repeated ecchymoses, and purpuric syndromes[diet-and-health.net]
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]

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]
  • About Capillary Fragility Discussions around the web We found 23 discussions Treato does not review third-party posts for accuracy of any kind, including for medical diagnosis or treatments, or events in general.[treato.com]

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]

Etiology

  • Etiology In older children, purpura fulminans may have several causes.[drmhijazy.com]

Epidemiology

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]
