2,490 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Patient Appears Acutely Ill, Positive STD Test

  • Hepatitis B

    During the incubation period and during the acute phase of the illness, surface antigen-antibody complexes may be found in the sera of some patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The antigen persists during the acute illness and usually clears from the circulation during convalescence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The surface antigen appears in the sera of most patients during the incubation period, 2–8 weeks before biochemical evidence of liver damage or onset of jaundice.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hepatitis A

    Elevation of acute phase reactants, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and increased immunoglobulins can be seen but are non-specific. 2.[clinicaladvisor.com] The peak aminotransferase elevation is followed by the peak bilirubin concentrations with subsequent normalization over periods up to six months.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Gram-Negative Pneumonia

  • Hepatitis G

    Logistic regression was used to estimate the OR for a positive HGV/GBV-C test result associated with STD exposure, after adjustment for confounding variables.[cid.oxfordjournals.org] Specifically, the χ 2 test was used to compare the distributions of the various combinations of other positive test results that co-occurred with HGV/GBV-C PCR–positive results[cid.oxfordjournals.org] […] for an STD (the non-STD group).[cid.oxfordjournals.org]

  • Gonorrhea

    The possibility that positive test results may be false should be considered when patients have unanticipated positive test results.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Next Steps After Testing Positive for Gonorrhea or Chlamydia Data and Surveillance California STD Data National STD Data Resources for Providers CDC Division of STD Prevention[cdph.ca.gov] Before conducting a follow-up of a positive STD-test result, public health professionals should consult the patient’s health-care provider if possible to verify the diagnosis[cdc.gov]

  • Subcutaneous Abscess

    Extraintestinal infestation by Enterobius vermicularis is uncommon. It has been reported to occur in the peritoneal cavity, ovary, fallopian tube, endometrium, lung, liver and urinary tract. Fine needle aspiration diagnosis was made in a case of enterobiasis presenting with a subcutaneous abscess in the natal cleft.[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    Infected patients typically have an ill or anxious appearance.[symptoma.com] Additionally, pneumococcal pneumonia patients may display elevated neutrophil levels, C-reactive protein (CRP) levels and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR).[symptoma.com] Initially a viral illness is followed by an acute onset of high fever, rigors, productive cough, chest pain, dyspnea, tachypnea, tachycardia, excess perspiration, general[symptoma.com]

    Herein, we report a 6-month infant with a 7 days of fever and bilateral pleural effusion, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, thrombocytosis, hypo-albominemia, normal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The laboratory work-up was remarkable for elevated white blood cell count and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    We herein report the case of a 25-year-old Japanese woman with left-main-trunk acute myocardial infarction (LMT-AMI). She had cardiogenic shock, so emergency percutaneous intervention was performed. Intravascular ultrasound of LMT-AMI showed that the three-layered structure of the intima, tunica media, and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tubo-Ovarian Abscess

    Patients appear acutely ill, and fever is common. Physical examination reveals skin changes that progress from an erythema to a blue-grey discoloration.[glowm.com] […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate Elevated C-reactive protein Laboratory evidence of cervical infection with Neisseria gonorrhea or Chlamydia trachomatis (ie, culture or DNA[accessemergencymedicine.mhmedical.com] In severe cases, patients may present with toxemia and signs of infection such as fever, leukocytosis, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate or C-reactive protein level,[emedicine.medscape.com]
