  • Reiter's Syndrome

    […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C reactive protein also elevated 81% HLA-B27, less common in African Americans (30-50%); more likely in patients with chronic or relapsing[] Elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein are detected. Other common findings include thrombocytosis and leukocytosis.[] Blood tests of reactive arthritis patients are typically positive for the HLA-B27 genetic marker, with an elevated white blood cell count and an increased erythrocyte sedimentation[]

  • Behçet Disease

    The erythrocyte sedimentation rate, CRP and other acute phase reactants are seldom elevated during the acute phase and/or relapses of BD but are not well correlated with disease[] Elevated levels of various inflammatory markers are sensitive (but not specific) to BD including C-reactive protein, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, peripheral leukocyte and[]
