Elevated plasma fibrinogen, which helps stop bleeding.[]

    During an acute attack, tests reveal nonspecific features, including:  acute phase reactants (blood tests) – elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C-reactive protein[] Conclusion: Our observational study suggests for the first time that MWS could be identified among adult Chinese patients with intermittent fever of unknown cause, but with[] During an acute attack, tests reveal nonspecific features, including: acute phase reactants (blood tests) – elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate ( ESR ), C-reactive protein[]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    Initial labs showed pancytopenia, bandemia, proteinuria, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and elevated d-dimer.[] Here we report a case in which an elderly female presented with malar rash, intermittent fever, and arthralgia.[] The disease is marked by a wide range of system dysfunctions, an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and the formation of LE cells in the blood or bone marrow.[]
