13 Possible Causes for Dyspnea, Eschar Formation, Neutrophil Count Increased

  • Mucormycosis

    The lab results showed leukocytosis with a 16,500 count, in predominance of Neutrophils 76.8%., and ESR increase, with negative blood cultures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cutaneous mucormycosis produces cellulitis that progresses to dermal necrosis and black eschar formation.[patient.info] After debridement, the patient's dyspnea improved only to recur 2 days later.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
