131 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Knee Effusion

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    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[] […] 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 (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[]

  • Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

    The only laboratory abnormalities in this patient included elevated serum transaminases, a mildly elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and a moderately elevated level[] She is found to have a right knee effusion and associated soft-tissue swelling with no redness or warmth.[] Pericarditis usually follows arthritis and is usually associated with fever, leukocytosis and an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate.[]

  • 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.[] The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is elevated in septic arthritis; it returns to normal levels with resolution of the infection.[]

  • 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[] (D) Probability plots of difference in radiological progression among (I) participants with normal ( 12 mm/h) and elevated ( 12 mm/h) erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR)[]

  • 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.’[] When he was seen 3 weeks later, the patient had a 3-lb weight loss, bilateral conjunctivitis, neck stiffness, and effusions of both knees and one ankle.[]

  • 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[]

  • Lipoid Nephrosis

    Abstract The vascular permeability factor (VPF) is a lymphokine that has been shown to play a role in lipoid nephrosis (LN). Prior studies have shown that interleukin (IL) 12 promotes T helper type 1 differentiation and enhances production of T helper type 1 cytokines such as gamma interferon and IL-2. We,[…][]

  • Gonococcal Arthritis

    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.[] The most commonly involved joint are the knees, wrists, ankles and fingers. Hip involvement is rare [ 5 ].[]

  • Arthritis of Inflammatory Bowel Disease

    Drugs. 1986;32 Suppl 1:44-8. Abstract A total of 7 out of 158 rheumatoid arthritis patients followed for 6 months have developed leucopenia during sulphasalazine therapy at our centre. Two of these patients developed profound leucopenia which necessitated admission to a laminar flow unit, and case reports of these[…][]

  • Arthritis

    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.[] We review the ultrasound technique, sonographic findings, and literature regarding point-of-care ultrasound for knee effusions and JIA.[] […] 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[]
