311 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Fever, Pneumothorax

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    The major utility of the chest film is in finding other causes of the patient’s symptoms (i.e. an infiltrate in pneumonia or absent lung markings in pneumothorax).[] High grade fever is a rare presentation of thromboembolic phenomenon. A middle aged woman presented with high grade fevers.[] Pneumothorax. Sepsis. Assessment [ 4 ] NB: treatment may precede investigations if the patient is very ill (see 'Initial management' below).[]

  • Staphylococcal Pneumonia

    The delayed and subacute/chronic nature of the tension pneumothorax is unusual.[] Fever and signs of pleural effusion and respiratory distress were common in primary disease while fever and a toxic appearance were frequent with disseminated illness.[] The use of surgical drainage was not associated with a decrease in the duration of fever or length of hospital stay.[]

  • Lung Abscess

    We present a case of acute empyema with intractable pneumothorax associated with ruptured lung abscess caused by Mycobacterium avium in an immunocompromised patient.[] A 59 year old man presented to our hospital with a 1 month history of cough and low grade fever progressing to high grade fever for 1 week.[] […] development were: a younger age (p 0.003), road traffic accidents admission (p 0.017), head injury (p 0.002), lower Glasgow Coma Scale (p 0.009), blunt chest trauma (p 0.01) pneumothorax[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    The patient developed a large left-sided iatrogenic pneumothorax, which recurred and failed to resolve despite the successful insertion of both Seldinger and surgical chest[] Post-operative fever is common following emergency surgery.[] Unlike the common PLCH cases, this PLCH case has cervical lymph node involvement and right pneumothorax.[]

  • Mycoplasma Pneumonia

  • Streptococcus Pyogenes Pneumonia

  • Crack Lung

    […] radiograph and CT Reported features are nonspecific and include 2,3,4 : pulmonary alveolar and interstitial edema, predominantly perihilar pulmonary hemorrhage barotrauma: pneumothorax[] Two patients had prolonged inflammatory pulmonary injury associated with fever, hypoxemia, hemoptysis, respiratory failure, and diffuse alveolar infiltrates.[] […] smoke debris (3) exacerbation of asthma (4) sarcoid-like noncaseating granulomas (5) alveolar hemorrhage with hemoptysis (6) pulmonary vascular disease with infarction (7) pneumothorax[]

  • Chronic Pulmonary Coccidioidomycosis

    An air-fluid level in the pleural space is a clue that the process is not a spontaneous pneumothorax. In the past, these cavities often were surgically resected.[] It can cause fever, chest pain and coughing, among other signs and symptoms. Two species of coccidioides fungi cause valley fever.[] Holman, Coccidioidal spontaneous pneumothorax, Ann. Intern. Med . 47 : 1234–1242 (1957). PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar 23. A. R. Grant, N. G. Steinhoff, and D. W.[]

  • Pulmonary Sarcoidosis

    The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP) level were elevated. Figure 9.[] […] pattern with inter-intralobular septal thickening, two patients (11.1%) with small-airway involvement with mosaic oligoemia, two patients (11.1%) with pleural involvement (pneumothorax[] Fever and uveitis no longer recurred after 6 months of medication.[]

  • 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[] A procedure used in the preantibiotic era, artificial pneumothorax consisted of introducing air in repeated treatments over 1 to 2 years into the pleural space to compress[] (23 [88%] vs 16 [62%]; P 0.025), white blood cell count (21.8 10(9)/L vs 14.9 10(9)/L; P CONCLUSION: The triad of fever, leukocytosis, and diarrhea should alert clinicians[]
