13 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Monocyte Count Increased, Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma, Swinging Fever

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    In Asia, Epstein-Barr virus infection is related to development of nasopharyngeal carcinoma.[] Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is often elevated in patients with infectious mononucleosis but is usually within normal limits in patients with group A streptococcal[] The sedimentation rate is elevated in most patients with EBV infectious mononucleosis, but it is not elevated in group A streptococcal pharyngitis.[] The incidence of these diseases is low, and cases of Burkitt's lymphoma and nasopharyngeal carcinoma occur primarily outside of the United States.[]
