  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    A normochromic (or slightly hypochromic)-normocytic anemia occurs in 80%; Hb is usually 10 g/dL.[merckmanuals.com] In a patient with inflammatory arthritis, the presence of a rheumatoid factor or anti-citrullinated protein antibody, or elevated C-reactive protein level or erythrocyte sedimentation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is the most common hereditary auto-inflammatory (periodic fever) syndrome, and usually successfully treated with colchicine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Hypergammaglobulinemia is commonly seen in patients with chronic granulomatous disease.[lecturio.com] Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is characterized by fever, cytopenias, splenomegaly, and hemophagocytosis by macrophages activated by high cytokine levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate. .. .. e. All of the above References 1. Boxer LA, Blackwood RA.[hawaii.edu]

  • Bovine Actinomycosis

    Thoracic actinomycosis may result from inhalation of the organism into the air passages and is usually associated with weight loss, night sweats, coughing, and high fever.[britannica.com]

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    . • The complete blood cell test reveals mild normocytic, normochromic anemia in 50% of cases. The white blood cell count may be normal or mildly elevated.[uspharmacist.com] Elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate accompanies the symptoms.
