10 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Occult Malignancy, Prolactin Increased

  • Small Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    Small cell carcinoma is a highly malignant neoplasm with often extrathoracic metastases at the time of diagnosis, and a very low 5-years survival.[] […] pleural or pericardial effusion M1b Distant metastasis Stage grouping Occult carcinoma TX N0 M0 Stage 0 Tis N0 M0 Stage IA T1a,b N0 M0 Stage IB T2a N0 M0 Stage IIA T2b N0[] Metastases from an occult lung carcinoma should always be considered in the differential diagnosis of small cell carcinomas in extrapulmonary sites.[]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    […] metastases from lung cancer may present clinically or as a finding at autopsy. [3] Clinically they present with symptoms of colonic obstruction, lower gastrointestinal bleed (occult[] […] the appearance of pan colitis in this case could be from the extensive tumour involvement of colonic mucosa and excessive proliferative activity of a poorly differentiated malignancy[]

  • Renal Cell Carcinoma

    We describe a unique case of subcutaneous metastasis of sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma which was the first manifestation of the occult malignancy.[]

  • Relapsed Small Cell Lung Cancer

    Background: The treatment efficacy of second-line chemotherapy in poor-risk patients with refractory-relapsed small-cell lung cancer is unclear. Methods: We defined refractory relapse as treatment-free interval Results: Twenty-three poor-risk patients with refractory-relapsed small-cell lung cancer were treated[…][]

  • Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Sunitinib has become a standard treatment agent for metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) for several years. However, various adverse events have been reported. We present a rare adverse effect of hyperammonemic encephalopathy induced by sunitinib. A 66-year-old woman with metastatic RCC referred to the[…][]

  • Bone Metastasis

    The most frequent malignant lesion involving the hyoid bone metastasized from the larynx, followed by the vallecula and pyriform sinus.[] , or in bone function, increases the impact of prolactin signaling in breast cancer bone metastases.[] The malignant phenotype is the culmination of a series of genetic changes in the primary tumor and its metastases through which investigation of the activation, regulation[]

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    ., elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate [ESR]), other diagnoses may be considered.[] malignancy Exclusionary tests: history, physical examination, screening laboratory tests, peripheral blood smears Rheumatologic Fibromyalgia Sjögren's syndrome Polymyalgia[] Increased prolactin response to Buspirone in chronic fatigue syndrome. J Affect Disord 1996;41(1):71–6. Crossref Google Scholar 126.[]

  • Abetalipoproteinemia

    Moreover, a profoundly reduced erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), anemia and elevated prothrombin time (PT) are other notable findings, suggesting that a full coagulation[] malignancy, malnutrition, and chronic liver disease.[] Serum prolactin was increased both in rest and during movement. The levels of both, somatomedin-C (IGF-1) and leptin were below the lowest normal limit.[]

  • Hypobetalipoproteinemia

    Complete blood count, blood smear, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, electrolytes, creatinine and urea were normal.[] malignancy, malnutrition, and chronic liver disease.[] Our results show a normal cyclical pattern with midcycle increases in the concentrations of luteinizing and follicle-stimulating hormones, prolactin, and estrogens but a distinctly[]

  • Pancreatic Carcinoma

    Laboratory findings showed elevated white blood cell count (WBC), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and serum C-reactive protein (CRP).[] Clinicians should be aware that pancreatic malignancy may present with a varying spectrum of GI bleeding ranging from occult to potentially exsanguinating hematemesis, hematochezia[]
