34 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Miliary Tuberculosis of the Liver

  • Miliary Tuberculosis of the Liver

    , Hepatology, Miliary tuberculosis, Radiology and Ultrasound examination Accreditation : Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) SciELO SA Science Citation Index[] Anemia and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) are often seen [ 9 ].[] Product Description 7.80 ex VAT 9.36 Inc VAT Miliary tuberculosis of liver prepared microscope slide.[]

  • Disseminated Tuberculosis

    In miliary tuberculosis , the liver almost always is involved by acute granulomatous inflammation.[] Erythrocyte sedimentation rate The erythrocyte sedimentation rate is elevated in approximately 50% of patients.[] Miliary TB may infect any number of organs, including the lungs, liver, and spleen.[]

  • Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome

    Laboratory tests reveal an elevated level of lactate dehydrogenase, anemia, and an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate.[]

  • Malaria

    The erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein, and procalcitonin are almost invariably elevated.[]

  • Spinal Tuberculosis

    Diagnosis [ edit ] Blood tests – CBC : leukocytosis – Elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate : 100 mm/h Tuberculin skin test – Tuberculin skin test (purified protein derivative[] Haematological investigations The erythrocyte sedimentation rate is usually elevated but is neither specific nor reliable in the diagnosis of spinal tuberculosis.[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Miliary tuberculosis appears due to hematogenous dissemination of Koch bacilli, local (lung) (Figure 2) or distant (most common kidneys, liver, spleen, meninges).[] Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) (reference values for men: 3–5mm/h; for women: 4–7mm/h) was elevated in both groups, with a mean of 50mm/h (24–65mm/h) in G1 and 43mm[] Here the tubercle bacillus is said to reach the liver through the portal vein from the gastrointestinal tract rather than the hepatic artery as in case of miliary tuberculosis[]

  • Polymyositis

    Chest computed tomography demonstrated miliary tuberculosis (TB).[] […] in 90% Elevated sedimentation rate (ESR) of 50 - 100 in 40% and an ESR above 100 in 10% ( Ann Rheum Dis 1993;52:857 ) Radiology description MRI T2 may show edema, which is[] Polymyositis is diagnosed based on: Blood tests show elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C-reactive protein and increased white blood cells (leukocytosis), which[]

  • Liver Abscess

    […] is usually noted in association with pulmonary disease or miliary tuberculosis.[] Diagnostic Tests/Procedures Lab: anemia, leukocytosis, an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and abnormal liver function tests, especially an elevated serum alkaline[] Laboratory exams may reveal alteration of the liver function tests, leukocytosis with neutrophilia, and increase in the erythrocyte sedimentation rate.[]

  • Splenic Abscess

    Autopsy revealed a basilar tuberculous meningitis and miliary tuberculosis in the peritracheal lymphatic glands, the liver, the spleen, and in isolated areas of the lungs.[] His blood counts and biochemical parameters were within normal limits except elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) (60 mm/h Wintrobe's method).[] rate of 90 mm/hour, presepsin of 554 pg/ml.[]
