195 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Knee Effusion

  • Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Many patients with JIA, especially the polyarticular and systemic types, have elevated sedimentation rates and anemia.[] She is found to have a right knee effusion and associated soft-tissue swelling with no redness or warmth.[] The only laboratory abnormalities in this patient included elevated serum transaminases, a mildly elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and a moderately elevated level[]

  • Gonococcal Arthritis

    […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate Elevated C-reactive protein level WBCs present on saline microscopy (wet-mount preparation) of vaginal secretions Specific criteria Endometrial[] Acute Reiter syndrome could be differentiated by characteristic mucucutaneous lesions, arthritis/tenosynovitis confined to lower extremities, massive recurrent knee effusions[] The joint exam is largely normal, with complete resolution of the knee effusion.[]

  • Reiter's Syndrome

    […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C reactive protein also elevated 81% HLA-B27 , less common in African Americans (30-50%); more likely in patients with chronic or relapsing[] ‘Immunologic diseases such as Reiter's syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis and rheumatic fever can also cause knee effusion.’[] Very large knee effusions, in excess of 100 mL, are not unusual.[]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate (a blood test that, in most patients with RA, confirms the amount of inflammation in the joints) X-rays can help in detecting RA, but may be[] […] joint effusion typically involves the lateral or non-weight bearing portion of the joint loss of joint space involving all three compartments lack of subchondral sclerosis[] […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate, ESR , or elevated CRP value (c-reactive protein) duration of arthritis : 1 point for symptoms lasting six weeks or longer The new criteria[]

  • Rheumatic Fever

    rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP), elevated anti-streptolysin-O (ASO) titration, and clinical findings of polyarthritis, carditis and chorea.[] At the age of 14 years she presented with carditis, migratory arthritis, fever, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate as well as serological evidence for recent streptococcal[] […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate, positive C-reactive protein, or leukocytosis; and e) prolonged PR interval on an electrocardiogram Laboratory Criteria for Diagnosis No specific[]

  • Bacterial Arthritis

    L ABORATORY DIAGNOSIS The laboratory abnormalities suggestive septic arthritis includes peripheral leucocytosis , elevated sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein.[] Late disease - is mainly involving joints, most commonly a single knee with intermittent, relatively painless large effusions lasting days or even weeks .[] Serum inflammatory markers, such as erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP), are often elevated in bacterial arthritis.[]

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis

    Erythrocyte sedimentation rate and alkaline and creatinine phosphatase were elevated. There was no rheumatoid factor present.[] […] with very large effusion; CREST Syndrome associated with what disease Differentiate between diseases with facial rash over bridge of nose SLE - malar "butterfly" rash, fixed[] People with active ankylosing spondylitis can have elevated blood tests that measure inflammation, such as the erythrocyte sedimentation rate ( ESR ) and C-reactive protein[]

  • Polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis

    Many patients with JIA, especially the polyarticular and systemic types, have elevated sedimentation rates and anemia.[] This is the case of RF-negative polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis that was reported with six-week history of neck pain, torticollis and left knee effusion.[] […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate in the first 6 months.[]

  • Osteoarthritis of the Knee

    In the knee osteoarthritis group, erythrocyte sedimentation rate was significantly elevated in patients with tenderness and patellar ballottement (P   0.032 and 0.038, respectively[] Knee effusions, popliteal cysts, and synovial thickening: association with knee pain in osteoarthritis.J Rheumatol 2001;28(6):1330-7. 10.[] knee tenderness, range of movement and socioeconomic status.[]

  • Arthritis of Inflammatory Bowel Disease

    Supporting laboratory findings include absence of rheumatoid factor, elevation of the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) or C-reactive protein (CRP) level, and presence[] […] contusions joint effusion.[] The joints become inflamed causing: Effusion (fluid in the joint) Swelling Redness Pain and tenderness over the joint What is the treatment?[]
