15 Possible Causes for Chest X-Ray Abnormal, Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Prolactin Increased

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Abstract Anemia is a major problem in patients with chronic kidney insufficiency. The development of recombinant human erythropoietin has enabled physicians to correct this anemia. Although anemia has not been considered to be a common or important contributor to congestive heart failure, anemia of any cause can[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    Chest x-ray showed a right hilar mass. Sputum cytology revealed abnormal cells that were "positive for malignancy."[peir.path.uab.edu] Sometimes a physician finds an abnormality on a chest x-ray prompting further evaluation with a chest CT scan or other imaging method.[verywellhealth.com]

  • Small Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    These may include: a complete blood count (CBC) test to evaluate overall health a lung needle biopsy to remove a small sample of lung tissue for analysis a chest X-ray to[healthline.com] […] check for tumors in the lungs a microscopic examination of sputum to check for abnormal lung cells a CT or MRI scan to check for tumors in other parts of the body a bone scan[healthline.com]

  • Langerhans-Cell Histiocytosis

    The chest X-ray of these patients will yield abnormal results. Some of the rare symptoms it can cause include chest pain and hemoptysis [1, 2, 4].[cancerwall.com] […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate (48 mm/h).[springerplus.springeropen.com] Follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, and prolactin levels continued to be low. No serum growth hormone level assessment was performed.[nature.com]

  • Renal Cell Carcinoma

    A chest x-ray and liver function tests are essential. If chest x-ray is abnormal, chest CT is done. If alkaline phosphatase is elevated, bone scanning is needed.[web.archive.org]

  • Relapsed Small Cell Lung Cancer

    INTRODUCTION: Bevacizumab when combined with carboplatin and paclitaxel improves response rates (RRs) and overall survival in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer. Paclitaxel has single-agent activity in relapsed small cell lung cancer (SCLC). Angiogenesis seems to play an important role in the pathogenesis[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Sunitinib has become a standard treatment agent for metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) for several years. However, various adverse events have been reported. We present a rare adverse effect of hyperammonemic encephalopathy induced by sunitinib. A 66-year-old woman with metastatic RCC referred to the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sarcoidosis

    Therefore, the diagnosis is based on multiple factors, including symptoms, abnormalities on a chest X-ray or CT scan, and microscopic examination of one or more specimens[ucsfhealth.org] (especially the erythrocyte sedimentation rate, ESR ).[lecturio.com] In her case, the increased calcitriol is derived from sarcoid granulomas and renal sources enhanced by the effect of estradiol and prolactin on the conversion of 25(OH)D to[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    […] capacity of carbon monoxide (DLCO) along with abnormal chest x-rays may be detected in asymptomatic patients. [9] Pulmonary abnormalities do not correlate with immune parameters[sjmms.net] Initial labs showed pancytopenia, bandemia, proteinuria, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and elevated d-dimer.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Studies do not agree on whether taking hormones increases the risk for lupus or for lupus symptom flares.[northshore.org]

  • Crack Lung

    In this case, a crack cocaine user presented with significant hypoxia, nonspecific chest X-ray abnormalities, with workup revealing AEP that responded well to steroids and[shmabstracts.com] […] in dopamine levels followed by cocaine administration, there is a decrease in prolactin secretion.[methoide.fcm.arizona.edu] X-rays Were Studied At the fourth Detroit hospital, the Henry Ford, five doctors did a retrospective evaluation of the chest X-rays of 71 patients who been treated in the[nytimes.com]
