  • CONCLUSIONS: PVS is predominantly seen in middle aged females and present with symptoms of iron deficiency anemia and early grade dysphagia. Single session of Savary-Gilliard bougie dilation was successful in majority patients in relieving dysphagia. Overall risk of developing upper GI malignancy was 4.5%.
  • Plummer-Vinson Syndrome in a Crohn's disease patient. [Case Reports]

  • Plummer Vinson Syndrome (PVS), a rare condition complicating iron deficiency anaemia, manifests as a classic triad of dysphagia, anaemia and oesophageal web. Iron deficiency is the commonest systematic complication of Crohn's disease with only one described case of a Crohn's disease patient combined with PVS in the literature. We present a case of PVS complicating Crohn's disease in a 38-years-ol…
  • A Holistic Approach to Diagnosing and Treating Dysphagia. [Journal Article]

  • We report a 39-year-old Native American female with an almost 20-year history of dysphagia that had increased in the 6 months prior to the initial evaluation. Investigation revealed a number of distinct esophageal disorders including Plummer-Vinson syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux disease with esophagitis, distal esophageal stricture, esophageal intramural pseudo-diverticulosis, and recurrent es…
  • A Rare Case of Plummer-Vinson Syndrome. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2019 Dec 25; 11(12):e6463.Gade AK, Pacheco L
  • Plummer-Vinson syndrome (PVS) is characterized by a triad of symptoms comprising microcytic hypochromic anemia, esophageal webs, and dysphagia. PVS is commonly found in women of middle age especially in the fourth and fifth decade of life and is rarely reported in males. We report a case of a 39-year-old female patient who had a classic presentation of PVS. PVS is precancerous with high malignant…
  • Plummer-Vinson Syndrome With Concomitant Factor VII Deficiency. [Case Reports]
    Ochsner J. 2019 Fall; 19(3):286-289.Kajy M, Monday L, Tannous P
  • CONCLUSIONS: To our knowledge, no case has been published about a patient diagnosed with PVS and concomitant factor VII deficiency. Our case illustrates several learning points: (1) PVS is an uncommon disorder that may still be diagnosed in a developed country in the 21st century; (2) PVS requires close follow-up and esophageal surveillance because of the increased risk of esophageal cancer; (3) factor VII exhibits a high degree of phenotypic variability; (4) phenotype in factor VII deficiency does not always correlate with factor VII activity, although life-threatening spontaneous bleeding is not expected with levels >2%.
  • Plummer-Vinson Syndrome and Heart Failure: An Unusual Association in an African American Woman. [Case Reports]
    Am J Case Rep. 2019 Aug 27; 20:1264-1267.Field Z, Russin M, … Carlan SJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: CHF with accompanying IDA may be an independent risk factor for the development of PVS. At the very least, there is an association between CHF-induced IDA and PVS. Patients presenting with CHF with symptoms of dysphagia should be considered at risk for the syndrome, and endoscopy may be warranted. Treatment for PVS includes iron replacement, and in some cases requires mechanical dilation.
  • Plummer-Vinson syndrome: improving outcomes with a multidisciplinary approach. [Review]
    J Multidiscip Healthc. 2019; 12:471-477.Lo KB, Albano J, … Candelario N
  • Plummer-Vinson syndrome is a rare condition associated with dysphagia, iron deficiency, and esophageal webs. Data regarding this condition is limited to mostly case reports and a few small cohort studies. Although most cases have a benign and indolent course, the risk of malignancy warrants long-term surveillance. A multidisciplinary approach among healthcare providers is of the utmost importance…

  • Plummer-Vinson syndrome (PVS), a rare clinical condition, is characterized by a triad of dysphagia, iron deficiency anemia and esophageal web in the post-cricoid region. It was first described over a century ago. However, literature on this condition remains scanty, and its prevalence appears to be declining worldwide, possibly due to improvements in nutrition over time. The condition has been re…
  • Plummer Vinson Syndrome: A Rare Syndrome in Male with Review of the Literature. [Case Reports]
    Case Rep Dent. 2017; 2017:6205925.Karthikeyan P, Aswath N, Kumaresan R
  • CONCLUSIONS: Dentists have to be familiar with symptoms of PVS and a thorough clinical examination of the patient is necessary for early diagnosis and treatment. As PVS is a precancerous condition with high malignant potential, early diagnosis is of utmost importance for better prognosis.Mutual interaction of systemic and oral health has largely been underestimated by many patients in the developing countries and hence this report includes a note on importance of adequate medical history taking and its relevance to the dental health and treatment.
