905 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Leukocytosis, Seizure

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    […] of 100.4 F (38 C) or higher, or as advised by your healthcare provider Blood in your urine or stool Bloody discharge from your nose, mouth, or ears Severe headache or a seizure[fairview.org] End stage renal disease causes weight loss, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, difficulty breathing and seizures.[kidneyandhypertensioncare.com] , persistent itchy skin muscle twitching or cramping a yellowish-brown tint to the skin As the kidney failure gets worse and the toxins continue to build up in the body, seizures[medbroadcast.com]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    Initial labs showed pancytopenia, bandemia, proteinuria, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and elevated d-dimer.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We found that APS was strongly associated with neurological manifestations and in particular with cerebrovascular diseases and seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Erythematosus Differential diagnosis Distinguishing features Diagnostic approach Adult-onset Still disease Arthralgia, fever, lymphadenopathy, splenomegaly Tests for elevated ESR, leukocytosis[aafp.org]

  • Cryopyrin-Associated Periodic Syndrome

    […] levels of serum IL-6) during episodes, as well as chronically elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rates and acute-phase reactants (e.g., Serum Amyloid A and C-Reactive Protein[checkorphan.org] Onset, severity and complications (mainly retardation, seizures, destructive arthropathy and amyloidosis) depend on the specific mutation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Diagnostic methods Diagnosis is based on clinical manifestations and on laboratory findings revealing generalized leukocytosis and neurophilia along with others elevated acute[orpha.net]

  • CINCA Syndrome

    Diagnostic methods Laboratory analyses document a nonspecific inflammatory syndrome with anaemia, granulocyte hyperleucocytosis, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR[orpha.net] Headache, vomiting, altered mental state, intellectual disability, seizures, episodes of hemiplegia and chronic meningitis-like states are CNS manifestations of the disease[symptoma.com] He also was found to have a mild iron deficiency anemia with a leukocytosis.[healio.com]

  • Brain Abscess

    Laboratory investigation revealed severe leucocytosis (WBC count: 16, 6 1O³) with 94, 3% polymorph nuclear cells, 0, 4 % lymphocytes and elevated sedimentation rate of 60[ajns.paans.org] The patient was a 60-year-old man admitted for a seizure and administered an anticonvulsant, after which he began stuttering.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fever, chills, and leukocytosis may develop before the infection is encapsulated, but they may be absent at presentation or subside over time.[msdmanuals.com]

  • Polyarteritis Nodosa

    He had symptoms of myalgia and weight loss, was afebrile but had an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate and acute-on-chronic renal impairment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CASE PRESENTATION: A 26-year-old South-Asian female presented with left sided focal seizures with secondary generalization and visual disturbance for 2 days duration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Despite ongoing methotrexate treatment, the number of leukocytes increased after 18 months and was accompanied by worsening of the clinical picture ( Figure 2 ).[doi.org]

  • Kawasaki Disease

    The typical laboratory features of Kawasaki disease, such as elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, leukocytosis, anemia, positive C-reactive protein and thrombocytosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This indicated acute encephalopathy with biphasic seizures and late reduced diffusion (AESD); severe neurological sequelae remained.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Persistent fever in spite of antimicrobials, thrombocytosis, and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein levels pointed toward a diagnosis of KD in[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Takayasu Arteritis

    Abdomen examination revealed no abnormal findings Laboratory investigations: leukocytosis, hemoglobin was 10.9 gm/dl, erythrocytes sedimentation rate was 70 mm and C-reactive[jneuro.com] In fact, elevated blood pressure with an elevated sedimentation rate is distinctly uncommon in children and very helpful in suggesting Takayasu disease as a possible cause[medicinenet.com] The neurological symptoms of the disease vary depending on the degree; the nature of the blood vessel obstruction; and can range from lightheadedness to seizures (in severe[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Whipple Disease

    Laboratory tests may provide several nonspecific findings that in combination can be suggestive of diagnoses such as: hypoalbuminemia, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate[scielo.br] The onset was characterized by a short-term amnesic syndrome for several months before the onset of generalized tonic-clonic seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Laboratory tests often show an elevation in C-reactive protein (CRP), in the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and in the white blood cell and platelet count.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Intracranial Abscess

    Investigations [ 8, 9 ] FBC: marked leukocytosis. Raised ESR and CRP.[patient.info] A statistically significant elevation of median values was seen for erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), fibrinogen and body temperature in the study group.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After a second episode of seizure, imaging studies showed a temporal lobe abscess.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
