2,106 Possible Causes for Alkaline Phosphatase Increased, Patient Appears Acutely Ill, Positive STD Test

  • Hepatitis B

    During the incubation period and during the acute phase of the illness, surface antigen-antibody complexes may be found in the sera of some patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] serum alkaline phosphatase (4%), increased liver enzymes (2%) Local: Pain at injection site (4%) Neuromuscular & skeletal: Myalgia (10%), joint stiffness (2%) Renal: Increased[drugs.com] Serum bilirubin levels seldom increase above 10 mg/dL, the alkaline phosphatase level and prothrombin time are usually normal or mildly elevated (e.g., 1 to 3 seconds), and[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • Hepatitis A

    Alkaline phosphatase activity also rises relatively late in the course of the infection, and tends to parallel serum bilirubin increases.[clinchem.org] Liver enzymes like aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase, alkaline phosphatase, gamma-glutamyl transferase and lactate dehydrogenase were severely elevated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The most striking laboratory findings include increases of serum aminotransferase activities, serum bilirubin (both total and direct), and serum alkaline phosphatase activity[clinchem.org]

  • Hepatitis G

    Logistic regression was used to estimate the OR for a positive HGV/GBV-C test result associated with STD exposure, after adjustment for confounding variables.[cid.oxfordjournals.org] There is also evidence for two-fold increases in the activity of alkaline phosphatase (AP) and γ-glutamyl transpeptidase (γ-GTP) in GBV-C positive patients[ 95 ].[doi.org] Specifically, the χ 2 test was used to compare the distributions of the various combinations of other positive test results that co-occurred with HGV/GBV-C PCR–positive results[cid.oxfordjournals.org]

  • Cholelithiasis

    Patients with acute ascending cholangitis are usually ill-appearing and septic.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with increased CBD dilatation more than 5 mm showed statistically significant increases in alkaline phosphatase and gamma-glutamyltransferase.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] in serum bilirubin concentration, alkaline phosphatase activity, or aspartate transaminase activity.[link.springer.com]

  • Gonorrhea

    The possibility that positive test results may be false should be considered when patients have unanticipated positive test results.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Next Steps After Testing Positive for Gonorrhea or Chlamydia Data and Surveillance California STD Data National STD Data Resources for Providers CDC Division of STD Prevention[cdph.ca.gov] Before conducting a follow-up of a positive STD-test result, public health professionals should consult the patient’s health-care provider if possible to verify the diagnosis[cdc.gov]

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    Overview Infectious mononucleosis (mono) is often called the kissing disease. The virus that causes mono is transmitted through saliva, so you can get it through kissing, but you can also be exposed through a cough or sneeze, or by sharing a glass or food utensils with someone who has mono. However, mononucleosis[…][mayoclinic.com]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    BACKGROUND: Beginning in February 2012, there was a shortage of injectable furosemide in the province of Ontario, Canada. The objective of this study was to assess the effects of the furosemide shortage on heart failure outcomes in Ontario, Canada. METHODS: We determined which hospitals experienced a shortage[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Cholecystitis

    patient.[ispub.com] […] than in non-AIDS patients, (2) problems with oral ingestion (3), right upper abdominal pain, (4) a marked increase in alkaline phosphatase and a mild increase in serum bilirubin[doi.org] Mild cholestatic abnormalities (bilirubin up to 4 mg/dL and mildly elevated alkaline phosphatase) are common, probably indicating inflammatory mediators affecting the liver[merckmanuals.com]

  • Viral Hepatitis

    Hepatosplenomegaly and laboratory evidence of mild to moderate hepatic dysfunction are the predominant features, with increased aminotransferases and alkaline phosphatase[doi.org] Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) – an enzyme related to the bile ducts but also found in other tissues throughout the body.[labtestsonline.org] The ALP test is often increased when bile ducts are blocked but may also be increased with bone disorders.[labtestsonline.org]

  • Acute Fatty Liver of Pregnancy

    The serum concentrations of transaminase enzymes, bilirubin, and alkaline phosphatase were increased, and a mild coagulopathy was present.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Differential Diagnosis See Acute Hepatitis Hyperemesis Gravidarum Liver transaminases (AST, ALT) may be over 200 IU/L Alkaline Phosphatase may be increased up to twice normal[fpnotebook.com]
