309 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Localized Edema, Skin Ulcer

  • Polyarteritis Nodosa

    Unfortunately, he died due to congestive heart failure and pulmonary edema 1 year after discharge following the cholecystectomy.[] Other features include livedo reticularis, skin ulcers and tender indurated plaques.[] He had symptoms of myalgia and weight loss, was afebrile but had an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate and acute-on-chronic renal impairment.[]

  • Necrotizing Fasciitis

    Via infection, local inflammatory processes produce increased amounts of purulence, local edema, and eventually necrosis in the deep tissues, leading to pain out of proportion[] BACKGROUND: Pyoderma gangrenosum is a rare noninfectious cutaneous disease characterized by expanding areas of skin ulceration around necrotic centers with purulent debris[] The process begins as local cellulitis, with erythema, edema, pain, and marked tenderness.[]

  • Cellulitis

    Physical Assessment  Local symptoms:  Erythema and edema of area  Warm to touch,  Possibly fluctuant (tense, firm to palpation)  May resemble peau d’orange  Advancing[] […] graft for skin ulcer or cellulitis with mcc 574 Skin graft for skin ulcer or cellulitis with cc 575 Skin graft for skin ulcer or cellulitis without cc/mcc 576 Skin graft except[] […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate, elevated C-reactive protein Skin surface swab, blood cultures, cutaneous aspirates are NOT routinely recommended Recommended ONLY if malignancy[]

  • Osteomyelitis

    Local pain, swelling, erythema, and edema may also be reported. [2] Physical Examination On physical examination, scars or local disturbance of wound healing may be noted[] ulceration, or a penetrating injury.[] Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR). ,, It may be elevated in non-infectious forms of inflammation ( arthritis etc.).[]

  • Subcutaneous Abscess

    […] swelling and a positive indication is obtained by needle puncture. subcutaneous edema accumulation of edema in subcutaneous tissues, usually of the dependent parts.[] […] graft for skin ulcer or cellulitis with mcc 574 Skin graft for skin ulcer or cellulitis with cc 575 Skin graft for skin ulcer or cellulitis without cc/mcc 576 Skin graft[] Signs and symptoms of herpetic whitlow include the abrupt onset of edema, erythema, and significant localized tenderness of the infected finger.[]

  • Multiple Myeloma

    About a week later, he developed progressive skin ulcers at sites where trochanters had been inserted.[] The typical presentation of multiple myeloma is anemia, back pain, and an elevated sedimentation rate.[] The presence of unexplained anemia, kidney dysfunction, a high erythrocyte sedimentation rate, lytic bone lesions, elevated beta-2 microglobulin, or a high serum protein ([]

  • Brown Recluse Spider Bite

    Brown recluse spider bites can lead to severe local or systemic clinical effects, such as edema, necrotic ulcer, rashes, fever, chills, nausea, vomiting, malaise, arthralgia[] ulcers (necrotic arachnidism).[] rate (ESR) often is elevated, supporting the presence of an inflammatory response.[]

  • Lymphogranuloma Venereum

    In these cases, ulcers or scar tissue obstruct lymph drainage and lead to severe localized edema .[] It may cause the overlying skin to break down (ulcerate) but heals so quickly that it may pass unnoticed.[] Increased serum immunoglobulins, leukocytosis, and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and abnormal liver function are common.[]

  • Glanders due to Malleomyces Mallei

    Insect bites — The trauma from insect bites may cause local inflammation, edema, and pruritus. Insects seldom bite mucous membranes.[] It has varied clinical presentations, including asymptomatic infection, localized skin ulcers/abscesses, chronic pneumonia, and fulminant septic shock with abscesses in multiple[] At the other end of the spectrum are asymptomatic infections and localised skin ulcers or abscesses without systemic illness.[]

  • Erysipelas

    Local signs of inflammation warmth, edema, tenderness are universal. 18.[] Possible other causes for erysipelas include skin ulcers, surgical incisions, insect bites, psoriasis, and edema feet secondary to cardiac insufficiency and diabetes.[] The most common manifestation of erysipelas was local symptoms and signs (pain, erythema, and swelling) in all patients, together with elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate[]
