Can fibromuscular dysplasia cause stroke?

Fibromuscular dysplasia can weaken the walls of the arteries it affects, creating a bulge (aneurysm). An aneurysm rupture can be life-threatening. Aneurysms need to be monitored and sometimes require surgery to prevent rupture. Stroke.

How do I confirm my FMD?

Presently FMD diagnosis is being carried out using techniques such as Virus Isolation (VI), Sandwich-ELISA (S-ELISA), Liquid-Phase Blocking ELISA (LPBE), Multiplex-PCR (m-PCR), and indirect ELISA (DIVA), and real time-PCR can be used for detection of antibody against nonstructural proteins.

Does fibromuscular dysplasia go away?

Although FMD has no cure, the conditions caused by FMD can and should be treated, especially high blood pressure.

Can FMD cause fatigue?

Although considered a rare disease, recent studies suggest that FMD may be more prevalent than once thought. Common clinical presentations include hypertension, headache, fatigue, and pulsatile tinnitus.

Is fibromuscular dysplasia reversible?

A sec- ond renal arteriogram performed recently showed complete reversal of the fibromuscular dysplasia.

What is the difference between fibrocollagenous and palisading dermatofibroma?

The fibrocollagenous type of dermatofibroma has a predominance of collagen and fibroblast-like cells in an irregular or whorled arrangement. One variant of the fibrocollagenous type, the ‘palisading dermatofibroma,’ has nuclear palisading and prominent verocay-like bodies in part of the lesion.

What is fibrocollagenous tissue in cyst wall?

Microscopically, the cyst wall contained fibrocollagenous tissue and was lined by a single layer of uniform flat cells, suggestive of arachnoid cyst. H&E stained sections showed fibrocollagenous tissue intermixed with cystically dilated endometrial glands and endometrial stroma surrounded by hemorrhagic and edematous areas [Figure 2a].

What histopathological finding shows fibrocollagenous tissue in scar mass?

Histopathological finding of scar mass showed fibrocollagenous tissue as well as fibroadipose tissue with normal endometrial glands and stroma. Histopathology of the biopsy revealed fibroadipose and fibrocollagenous tissue, showing dense chronic inflammation along with the formation of lymphoid follicles.

What does fibrocollagenous fibroadipose nodules in endometriosis indicate?

The nodules were excised under general anaesthesia and histopathology investigation revealed fibrocollagenous and fibroadipose tissue exhibiting endometrial glands surrounded by endometrial type stroma consistent with scar endometriosis. Fibrocollagenous thickening of dermis was seen in both biopsies.
