687 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Fever, Leukocytosis

  • Appendicitis

    Blood test results revealed leukocytosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On admission, the patient was in septic shock with leukocytosis and elevation of C-reactive protein. Among other diagnoses, necrotizing fasciitis was suspected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

  • Subcutaneous Abscess

    Complementary exams showed leukocytosis. Septic arthritis and bacteraemia was suspected and administration of antibiotic was started after blood culture.[clinmedjournals.org] Note that generalized symptoms such as fever and chills do not occur with these simple abscesses.[symptoma.com] If there is bacteremia patient may present with systemic signs of sepsis such as fever, rigors, and raised inflammatory markers.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    Additionally, pneumococcal pneumonia patients may display elevated neutrophil levels, C-reactive protein (CRP) levels and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR).[symptoma.com] A previously healthy 4-month-old boy presented at our emergency department with a 10-day history of fever and non-productive cough.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] With adequate antipneumococcal therapy and/or chest tube drainage, all of the patients recovered completely; however, clinical improvement was prolonged: fever lasted 9 to[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Abstract Thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) is a rare but lethal multisystem disease characterized by peripheral thrombocytopenia, microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, fever,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In hospital FBC to rule out anaemia; leukocytosis is common; monitor potassium levels (electrolyte disturbances may cause arrhythmias, especially potassium and magnesium);[patient.info] Signs Cardiovascular examination findings can vary enormously: Low-grade fever, pale and cool, clammy skin.[patient.info]

  • Infective Endocarditis

    […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate, elevated C-reactive protein level, as well as the presence of central nonfeeding lines, peripheral lines, and microscopic hematuria [ 14 ][doi.org] […] represents the third iteration of an infective endocarditis "treatment" document developed by the American Heart Association under the auspices of the Committee on Rheumatic Fever[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CASE PRESENTATION: A 57-year-old white man presented with bilateral large leg ulcers, fever, and marked leukocytosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Osteomyelitis

    Laboratory studies may reveal peripheral leukocytosis and an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR).[emedicine.medscape.com] Here, we describe an epidemiologically atypical patient who initially presented with fever and altered mental status and later found to have calvarial osteomyelitis, intracranial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] indication considered when radiography is unrevealing findigs may reveal bone necrosis, abscess, and sinus tracts Studies Labs C-reactive protein erythrocyte sedimentation rate leukocytosis[step2.medbullets.com]

  • Adult-Onset Still Disease

    The two most commonly associated with AOSD are an elevated sedimentation rate (ESR) and a high blood ferritin level.[thedoctorwillseeyounow.com] Intense pruritus and linear erythematous lesions flared with a spiking fever, usually in the late afternoon and evening.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] systemic inflammatory disease which presents with cardinal symptoms of spiking fever, arthralgia, and characteristic non pruritic evanescent salmon pink rash and neutrophilic leukocytosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bacterial Arthritis

    L ABORATORY DIAGNOSIS The laboratory abnormalities suggestive septic arthritis includes peripheral leucocytosis, elevated sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein.[antimicrobe.org] We conclude, that the absence of fever, rigors, blood leucocytosis and positive blood cultures does not rule out the possibility of bacterial arthritis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract In this comparative analysis of laboratory data, we examined the characteristics of synovial fluid leukocytosis in eighty adult patients with bacterial arthritis,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Bacterial Endocarditis

    Leukocytosis and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate suggest the diagnosis of IE. The hallmark of IE is a cardiac vegetation and continuous high-grade bacteremia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Typically the presentation is silent, with persistent fever and positive blood cultures being the only consistent findings.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate Signs of myocarditis Acute bacterial endocarditis (ABE) is a progressive infection of normal or a variable valve and usually develops with[remedyland.com]
