Examples of "lymphangitis"
Chronic lymphangitis is a cutaneous condition that is the result of recurrent bouts of acute bacterial lymphangitis.
This article refers mainly to sporadic lymphangitis. Ulcerative lymphangitis is referred to in passing, as it is managed in a similar manner. Epizootic lymphangitis is similar to glanders, but caused by the fungus "Histoplasma farciminosum".
Lymphangitis carcinomatosa is inflammation of the lymph vessels (lymphangitis) caused by a malignancy. Breast, lung, stomach, pancreas, and prostate cancers are the most common tumors that result in lymphangitis. Lymphangistis carcinomatosa may be caused by the following malignancies as suggested by the mnemonic:"Certain Cancers Spread By Plugging The Lymphatics"
Epizootic lymphangitis usually presents with the following symptoms:
Epizootic lymphangitis is a contagious lymphangitis disease of horses and mules caused by the fungus "Histoplasma farciminosum". Cattle are also susceptible, but more resistant to the disease than equids.
Previously, the finding of lymphangitis carcinomatosis meant about a six-month life expectancy. However, improved treatment has improved survival in patients with lymphangitis carcinomatosis, with patients often surviving three or more years with treatment.
Lymphangitis is an inflammation or an infection of the lymphatic channels that occurs as a result of infection at a site distal to the channel. The most common cause of lymphangitis in humans is "Streptococcus pyogenes" (Group A strep), although it can also be caused by the fungus "Sporothrix schenckii". Lymphangitis is sometimes mistakenly called "blood poisoning". In reality, "blood poisoning" is synonymous with "sepsis".
Lymphangitis carcinomatosis most often affects people 40–49 years of age.
Elephantiasis nostras is a cutaneous condition, a final hypertrophic fibrosis following longstanding chronic lymphangitis.
Lymphangitis carcinomatosa was first described by pathologist Gabriel Andral in 1829 in a patient with uterine cancer.
"Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis" has been cultured from some cases (particularly of ulcerative lymphangitis; however, in others, bacterial culture is negative. This may be because:
Lymphangitis is an inflammation of the lymph vessels. Symptoms usually include swelling, redness, warmth, pain or red streaking around the affected area.
Vaccination has been utilised on a limited scale in areas where enzootic lymphangitis is endemic, e.g. Iraq, but is not authorised for widespread use.
In most cases, lymphangitis carcinomatosis is caused by the dissemination of a tumor with its cells along the lymphatics. However, in about 20 percent of cases, the inflammation of the lymphatic tubules (lymphangitis) is caused by a tumor that blocks the drainage of the lymph duct. In the lung, this is often caused by a centrally located mass, near the hilum of the lung that blocks lymphatic drainage.
Etiology of Sclerosing lymphangitis is unknown but has been postulated to be secondary to thrombosis of lymphatic vessels. Spontaneous recovery can occur anywhere within a couple weeks to several months.
Sclerosing lymphangitis is a skin condition characterized by a cordlike structure encircling the coronal sulcus of the penis, or running the length of the shaft, that has been attributed to trauma during vigorous sexual play.
Equine lymphangitis is an inflammation or swelling associated with impairment of the lymphatic system, particularly in a limb, in horses. It is most commonly a bacterial infection, although bacterial culture may be negative.
Andral is credited as the first physician to describe lymphangitis carcinomatosa, a disease that is usually associated with cancers of the lung, breast, stomach, and cervix. His father, Guillaume Andral, was also a physician of note.
Pasteurella lymphangitidis is a bacterium; it causes bovine lymphangitis. Its reclassification to "Yersinia" has been proposed, given it poses a 99% sequence similarity to both "Yersinia pseudotuberculosis" and "Yersinia pestis".
In Paris he performed studies on "Mycobacterium tuberculosis", pseudo-tuberculosis of rodents, the bubonic plague in humans, ulcerative lymphangitis, paratuberculosis in cattle and anthrax. With Léopold Nègre he developed "antigène méthylique" (antigen-methyl) for treatment of tuberculosis.
