  • Osteomyelitis

    Over the next 24 hours, he developed fever, chills, and left lower quadrant pain.[] Septic appearance with no localized findings 3. Diffuse, edema, erythema, warmth and swelling of a limb 4.[] Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR). ,, It may be elevated in non-infectious forms of inflammation ( arthritis etc.).[]

  • Abdominal Visceral Abscess

    It is associated with anorexia, nausea, and vomiting. — Diverticulitis – Left lower quadrant pain is the most common complaint.[] Spillage of infected materials results in localized or generalized peritonitis. 2. Incarcerated hernia. Post-operative adhesions. 3.[] […] white cell count Elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate Elevated C‐reactive protein Neisseria gonorrhoeae and/or Chlamydia trachomatis test positive An adnexal mass on abdominal[]

  • Henoch-Schönlein Purpura

    There may be associated edema of the hands, feet, or face. The rash may rarely present as hemorrhagic vesicles and bullae and desquamation may occur ( 30, 32 ).[] Factors not significantly associated with renal involvement were: blood pressure; orchitis; elevated C-reactive protein; elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR); and[] Laboratory values on admission revealed leukocytosis (17,500/μL [reference range, 4500–11,000/μL]), elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (42 mm/h [reference range, 0–20[]

  • Acute Prostatitis

    lower-quadrant abdominal pain; acute change in bowel habits; history of diverticulitis; tenderness to palpation localized to the left lower abdominal quadrant Epididymitis[] Abdominal pain is often poorly localized. Obstructive symptoms may be present due to prostate edema.[] Inflammatory markers, such as C-reactive protein and erythrocyte sedimentation rate, will likely be elevated, but these tests have minimal clinical or diagnostic utility.[]

  • Spigelian Hernia

    She was admitted to hospital for the acute onset of an intense abdominal pain in the left lower quadrant associated with fever.[] If the patient noted local edema, previously, it may help in the diagnosis that is sometimes difficult because of the abseence of pain.[] Clues include fever, pain, local erythema, infected drainage, leukocytosis, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and signs of sepsis.[]

  • Mesenteric Infarction

    Clinical features Typically presents with 3 clinical stages : Hyperactive phase Sudden onset of crampy abdominal pain (usually left lower quadrant) Bloody, loose stools 80%[] Vomiting Diarrhea GI bleeding may be present Imaging Plain abdominal radiographs (abnormal in 20-60% of cases) Thumbprinting Non-specific finding indicating intestinal wall edema[] Despite this, her sedimentation rate was only slightly elevated at 33 mm/hour, and all other coagulation and inflammatory tests were normal.[]

  • Retractile Mesenteritis

    […] old male who presented with dyschezia, abdominal pain and mass in left lower quadrant and Katsuya Endo et all reported a 22years old Japanese male who presented with chronic[] Mesenteric Edema Mesenteric edema may be caused by systemic diseases such as hypoproteinemia or hepatic, cardiac, or renal failure or may be related to local vascular diseases[] Laboratory results indicated: leukocytosis (13.200 cells/mm3), elevation in erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein (55 mm and 80,8 mg/L and respectively).[]

  • Splenic Abscess

    The present illness had started two weeks before admission to the hospital with vague pains in the left lower quadrant.[] Extensive venous and lymphatic damage can lead to venous insufficiency with dependent edema and ulcerations which may be or become infected.[] rate of 90 mm/hour, presepsin of 554 pg/ml.[]

  • Intermenstrual Pain

    […] symptoms, and lower extremity edema.[] […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate, elevated C-reactive protein level, and laboratory documentation of cervical infection with Neisseria gonorrhoeae or Chlamydia trachomatis.[] The physical exam should include a visual inspection of the cervix and a thorough bimanual, including a rectovaginal exam, to palpate for local masses or adhesions.[]

  • Pyelonephritis

    Diverticulitis : Due to bowel innervation, this condition can present with flank pain or suprapubic pain, although it most commonly presents with left lower quadrant pain.[] The contrast is thought to represent a combination of local edema and decreased T2 signal due to gadolinium in the perfused 'normal' portions 2.[] Blood tests may show leukocytosis with a neutrophilic shift, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, elevated C-reactive protein levels, and occasionally positive blood cultures[]
