1,049 Possible Causes for INCREASED, RBC, SEDIMENTATION

  • Urinary Tract Infection

    The absence of bacteria on Gram's stain of spun urine sediment has a high negative predictive value for significant bacteriuria.[microbiologybook.org] […] defined as: (1) the presence of 10 4 organisms per milliliter of urine, (2) the presence of one or more new symptoms, and (3) evidence of tissue invasion such as hematuria (4 RBC[doi.org] Antimicrobial resistance of urinary pathogens is increasing. Most urinary tract infections (UTIs) should still be treated empirically.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Influenza

    Initial droplet height was 1 m, and sedimentation and evaporation were simulated for 1,000 s.[doi.org] […] microscopy, for cytopathic effect, and at day 4 or 5, the presence of influenza virus was confirmed by taking 25 µL of the supernatant and mixing it with 25 µL of 1% turkey RBCs[doi.org] Our studies showed that r1918 infections also resulted in increased neutrophil and macrophage recruitment, accompanied by a significant increase in the expression of cytokine[doi.org]

  • Pharyngitis

    Non-specific tests such as erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP) are of very little importance.[symptoma.com] , WBCs and castsUrinalysis with RBCs, WBCs and casts 47.[de.slideshare.net] Abstract The emergence of drug-resistant organisms has promoted increased calls for judicious use of antibiotics in cases of pediatric pharyngitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Appendicitis

    Herein, we report a 6-month infant with a 7 days of fever and bilateral pleural effusion, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, thrombocytosis, hypo-albominemia, normal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RBCs or WBCs may be present in the urine.[merck.com] Comparing rural versus urban patient status, there were increased overall median [IQR] AAST grades (3 [1-5] vs. 2 [1-3], p 0.001), prehospital duration of symptoms (2 [1-5[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Streptococcal Infection

    The minor criteria include arthralgia, fever, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, elevated C-reactive protein, or a prolonged PR interval [ 1 ].[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com] RESULTS: beta-Hemolytic GCS, cultured from 1 of 8 RBC units, linked the fatal case to a single donor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A muscle biopsy demonstrated a necrotizing vasculitis and antistreptolysin titre was tremendously increased.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is often elevated in patients with infectious mononucleosis but is usually within normal limits in patients with group A streptococcal[symptoma.com] These heterophile antibodies react to antigens from animal RBCs.[emedicine.medscape.com] The percentage of CD8 /CD11b- cells was not increased in the atypical lymphocytes. However, CD45RO was expressed on 86.3% of CD4 atypical lymphocytes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anemia of Chronic Disease

    Laboratory blood investigations included hemoglobin (g%), total number of erythrocytes (red blood cells), hematocrit/packed cell volume, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, mean[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Inflammation increases removal of senescent RBCs through activation of macrophages. This causes a slight change in the life span of RBCs, adding to iron deficiency.[symptoma.com] Patients with RA had lower numbers of CD34 /CD71 and CD36-/glycophorin A (glycoA ) bone marrow (BM) cells and increased proportions of apoptotic cells within the CD34 /CD71[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningitis

    She had a positive Mantoux test, high erythrocyte sedimentation rate but no clinical evidence of active pulmonary tuberculosis infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lumbar puncture demonstrated an opening pressure of 32 mm H2 O, glucose 90 mg/dL, protein content of 44 mg/dL, RBC 1, and WBC 21 (80% lymphocytes, 16% monocytes, 4% neutrophils[tiptiktak.com] Although rates of PCV7-related-serotype disease decreased by 32.1% (P 0.08), rates of non-PCV7-serotype disease increased from 0.32 to 0.51 (an increase of 60.5%, P 0.001)[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tuberculosis

    Chest examination revealed crepitations over the right upper zone and urinalysis demonstrated an active urinary sediment with red cell casts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After lysis of red blood cells (RBCs) with ACK buffer, cells were pre-incubated with anti-CD16/32 (FcBlock - 2.4G2) monoclonal antibodies (mAb) to block Fc γ R, and then incubated[doi.org] In addition, it led to increased expression levels of RANK on cell surfaces, and increased production of RANKL, TNF-α, MCP-1 and SDF-1.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Microcytic Anemia

    .  Erythrocyte sedimentation rate is found to be elevated in anemia of chronic disease owing to its inflammatory etiology. Dr.[slideshare.net] The measurement of RBC subpopulations is now available on the Sysmex XE 5000 analyzer (Sysmex, Kobe, Japan).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Further evaluations indicate severe hypochromic microcytic anemia with decreased serum levels of iron, TIBC, and increased serum level of ferritin in this patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
