63 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Jaw Claudication

  • Temporal Arteritis

    While physicians should be alert to the significance of visual symptoms or jaw claudication, ophthalmologists should be ready to facilitate prompt TABs when appropriate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These criteria were the same as for the traditional format, except that elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate was excluded, and 2 other variables were included: scalp tenderness[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical features are headache, visual loss, ophthalmoplegia, jaw claudication, temporal headache, with tenderness and thickening on the affected temporal artery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Non-Cranial Giant Cell Arteritis

    Patients with jaw claudication, diplopia, and an abnormal temporal artery on examination are more likely to have a temporal artery biopsy that is positive for GCA.[blood-test.biz] Approximately 80% of patients with polymyalgia rheumatica have an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate or an elevated C-reactive protein level. 9 When it occurs in the[mdedge.com] A classic symptom of this condition is pain in the tongue or jaw when eating (jaw claudication). Reduction of the blood supply to the brain can cause a stroke.[vasculitis.org.uk]

  • Giant Cell Aortic Arteritis

    Jaw claudication is noted especially when firm foods are chewed. Jaw claudication and diplopia are associated with a higher risk of blindness.[msdmanuals.com] The Right Diagnosis Presenting symptoms of GCA aortitis can include pulse deficits, fever, a highly elevated sedimentation rate, aneurysm or aortic dissection.[the-rheumatologist.org] Simultaneous elevation of erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein level has a sensitivity of 88% and a specificity of 98%. 2 An elevated platelet count has a[cmaj.ca]

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    The patient should be asked about headaches, jaw claudication and visual disturbance.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate accompanies the symptoms. See also erythrocyte sedimentation rate.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] GCA is characterized by headache, jaw claudication, and visual disturbances. Constitutional symptoms and elevated inflammatory markers are common to both conditions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rheumatoid Arteritis

    Jaw claudication : pain that worsens as patient chews, not just pain when patient chews.[thecurbsiders.com] rate, an inflammatory marker, 60 mm/hour (normal 1–40 mm/hour).[en.wikipedia.org] Clinical description GCA often starts insidiously with general symptoms, cranial manifestations (headache, jaw claudication, scalp tenderness, visual loss), and, in about[orpha.net]

  • Vasculitis

    The sclap may be tender and there may be jaw claudication and sore throat. Involvement of the ophthalmic arteries may lead to loss of vision.[symptoma.com] […] blood inflammatory response (high erythrocyte sedimentation rate and high C-reactive protein) and can be complicated by loss of sight in around 20% of patients and rarely[research.ndorms.ox.ac.uk] claudication suggesting giant cell arteritis) Ischemic manifestations (eg, ischemic stroke, limb claudication, mesenteric ischemia) out of proportion to a patient's risk[merckmanuals.com]

  • Aortitis

    A 72-year-old man, who is a hunter, presented with weight loss, fever, jaw claudication, and hardened temporal arteries associated with a persistent inflammatory syndrome[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present the case of a 70-year-old female patient with constitutional symptoms and elevated sedimentation rate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She denied fevers, chills, night sweats, visual changes, jaw claudication, joint pain, or focal neurologic symptoms. Her medications included aspirin and captopril.[jrheum.org]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    The main symptoms are headache, jaw claudication, polymyalgia rheumatica, visual loss, fatigue, and fever.[jrheum.org] Full blood count Leukocytosis is seen due to inflammation. [5,7] Erythrocyte sedimentation rate Elevated due to inflammation, but this has very low sensitivity and specificity[explainmedicine.com] There may also be elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and c-reactive protein (CRP), though none of these findings are specific.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Lyme Carditis

    Abstract Presenting an interesting case of a patient who complained of myalgias, fatigue, headache, jaw claudication and scalp tenderness.[pagepress.org] The initial laboratory work, including cellular blood count, cardiac enzymes and electrolytes, was normal except for an elevated sedimentation rate.[innovationsincrm.com] Laboratory findings showed elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein, bilateral temporal artery biopsy results were negative and first degree atrioventricular[pagepress.org]
