44 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid Protein Increased, Coccidioides Immitis

  • Meningitis

    Coccidioides immitis is a soil-based, dimorphic fungus that exists in mycelial and yeast (spherule) forms.[emedicine.com] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis revealed pleocytosis with neutrophil predominance, increased protein and low glucose. CSF and blood cultures yielded negative results.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The inflammatory cells increased the membrane permeability and alter normal chemical contents of the cerebrospinal fluid like glucose and protein.[symptoma.com]

  • Coccidioidal Meningitis

    An autopsy revealed chronic basal meningitis, cerebral arteritis, cerebral infarcts, hydrocephalus, and an old solitary pulmonary granuloma all due to Coccidioides immitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of Coccidioides immitis, despite the patient's taking an adequate dosage of fluconazole.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The accident occurred in an area in which coccidioidomycosis is endemic, and the causative agent, Coccidioides immitis, is found in high concentration in the soil.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myelitis

    immitis ) CNS cryptococcosis ( Cryptococcus neoformans ) CNS mucormycosis (order Mucorales ) neurocandidiasis ( Candida spp ) parasitic cerebral amoebiasis primary amoebic[radiopaedia.org] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) examination showed a mild increase in white blood cell count (80/mm 3 , 41% neutrophils) and a slightly elevated protein concentration (76 gm/dL)[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In some people with transverse myelitis, the cerebrospinal fluid contains more protein than usual and an increased number of white blood cells (leukocytes) that help the body[ninds.nih.gov]

  • Candida Meningitis

    immitis For a further discussion related to other etiological agents and other infective processes in the CNS, please refer to CNS infectious diseases.[radiopaedia.org] These include: Cryptococcus neoformans Histoplasma capsulatum Coccidioides immitis Candida albicans Blastomyces dermatitidis Aspergillus species and others Most of these fungi[nervous-system-diseases.com] immitis Antibody detection in CSF and serum Candida sp.[wikidoc.org]

  • Lyme Meningoencephalitis

    Coccidioides immitis is a soil-based, dimorphic fungus that exists in mycelial and yeast (spherule) forms.[emedicine.medscape.com] The results of the test will likely show an increase in protein, globulin, and white blood cells if your dog has meningoencephalitis.[wagwalking.com] Examination of the cerebrospinal fluid obtained by a lumbar puncture procedure usually reveals increased amounts of protein and white blood cells with normal glucose, though[intranet.tdmu.edu.ua]

  • Bacterial Meningitis

    Coccidioides immitis and, rarely, other fungi also cause subacute meningitis (Ref.2).[qiagen.com] fluid leukocytosis, increased protein influx, and lactate accumulation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Increased neutrophil count and protein content, and decreased glucose levels in her cerebrospinal fluid initially suggested bacterial meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Viral Meningitis

    Pathogenesis The first identified Coccidioides species was Coccidioides immitis. Recently, Taylor et al. [ 9 ] identified a second species, Coccidioides posadasii.[dx.doi.org] Significant positive correlations between the nitrite and granulocyte counts and the protein concentration in cerebrospinal fluid were found in all patients with meningitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] For a definitive diagnosis of meningitis, you'll need a spinal tap to collect cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).[mayoclinic.org]

  • Subacute Transverse Myelitis

    Primary pathogens include the following: Cryptococcus neoformans, Coccidioides immitis, Blastomyces dermatitides, and Hystoplasma capsulatum.[en.wikipedia.org] If acute transverse myelitis is present, the number of certain white blood cells and the protein level in the cerebrospinal fluid is increased.[merckmanuals.com] A test of cerebrospinal fluid may show increased white cells and protein.[clevelandclinic.org]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    immitis, Candida species, and Blastomyces dermatitidis Infections with Toxoplasma gondii, P jiroveci, C parvum, Cyclospora cayetanensis, and Isospora belli; amebiasis; scabies[emedicine.medscape.com] Nitric oxide synthase is present in the cerebrospinal fluid of patients with active multiple sclerosis and is associated with increases in cerebrospinal fluid protein nitrotyrosine[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Increased cerebrospinal fluid tau protein in multiple sclerosis. Eur Neurol 2000; 43(4): 228–32 PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar 107.[doi.org]

  • Spinal Tuberculosis

    immitis Blastomyces dermatitidis Cryptococcus neoformans Aspergillosis spirochetes Treponema pallidum Treatment Nonoperative pharmacologic treatment /- spinal orthosis indications[orthobullets.com] Other etiologies of granulomatous infection may have similar clinical picture as TB and include atypical bacteria Actinomyces israelii Nocardia asteroids Brucella fungi Coccidioides[orthobullets.com]
