1,366 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate

  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

    With patients' positive chandelier sign on pelvic examination, leucocytosis, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate and elevated C-reactive protein indicated that she had[] Possible laboratory findings include abundant white blood cells on saline microscopy of vaginal secretions, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, elevated c-reactive protein[]

  • Third Trimester Pregnancy

    PURPOSE: To review the effect of non-gynecologic laparoscopic procedures performed during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy on pregnancy outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A review of the patient log for the antenatal obstetrical unit was used to identify the patients in this series from January 1,[…][]

  • Subcutaneous Abscess

    A subcutaneous abscess is an abscess located in the subcutaneous tissue (also hypodermis). The abscess is formed due to a hypodermal infection by a bacterium, a fungus or a parasite. Typically, this kind of abscess needs drainage, usually for a minimum of 24 hours, by means of gauze packing or a Penrose drain.[…][]

  • Chronic Prostatitis

    To report the finding of red and brownish precipitates with morphology and chemistry compatible with uric acid crystals in semen in a patient with symptoms of chronic prostatitis. Case report. Academic clinical biochemistry and immunology laboratory. A 35-year-old man with clinical symptoms of prostatitis. Uric acid[…][]

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    Elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate accompanies the symptoms. See also erythrocyte sedimentation rate.[] Diagnosis of GCA is based on clinical features, such as headache, jaw pain, vision changes, and temporal artery tenderness, along with an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation[] Laboratory examinations of blood yielded normal creatine kinase and mild elevation of erythrocyte sedimentation rate.[]

  • 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[…][]

  • 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[] The laboratory work-up was remarkable for elevated white blood cell count and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate.[]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a rare but fatal complication of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with an associated mortality that ranges from 41% to 80%. The treatment consists of supplemental oxygenation, afterload reduction, intraaortic balloon pump, and surgical repair. In selected patients, extracorporeal[…][]

  • Hashimoto's Thyroiditis

    Abstract Humans are widely exposed to Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP), a proven multi-host chronic enteric pathogen that has recently been linked to autoimmune diabetes. In the present study we used a MAP species-specific polymerase chain reaction with the insertion element IS900-specific[…][]

  • Pancreatic Abscess

    Blood tests showed poorly controlled diabetes with a random blood sugar level of 23.8 mmol/L (reference range: 3.5 to 6.0 mmol/L) and an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation[] rate of 93 mm/h (reference range: 0-10 mm/h).[]
