345 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Pericarditis, Pleural Effusion

  • Juvenile Onset Stills Disease

    Pericarditis or pleuritis are frequently observed in these patients as well.[] Visceral complications (pericarditis, pleural effusion or serous peritonitis with abdominal pain) may be present.[] The most common laboratory abnormalities include: -greatly elevated sedimentation rate -leukocytosis (in most cases between 15,000-30,000, mainly neutrophiles) -thrombocytosis[]

  • Dressler Syndrome

    Acute pericarditis has several potential causes.[] [2] Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) [4] ESR is raised in some patients due to pericardial inflammation.[] ) pleural effusion Pleural effusion may be bilateral Pleural effusions (83%) Parenchymal opacities (74%) Enlarged cardiac silhouette from pericardial effusion (49%) Differential[]

  • Postcardiac Injury Syndrome

    RECENT FINDINGS: In acute idiopathic pericarditis, pleural effusions tend to be left-sided and, if bilateral, they are usually larger on the left.[] […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate (96 percent; 25/26), and leukocytosis (49 percent; 17/35).[] The erythrocyte sedimentation rate was elevated to 120 mm/h. A repeat echocardiogram was performed, and the results were unchanged.[]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    Although pericarditis is not an uncommon entity in autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus, purulent pericarditis is a rare cause ([] Initial labs showed pancytopenia, bandemia, proteinuria, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and elevated d-dimer.[] Eosinophilic pleural effusion in elderly patients is most commonly due to malignancies and infections.[]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    Purulent pericarditis is an exceptionally rare complication of pneumococcal pneumonia in infants but a rapidly fatal disease if left untreated.[] Additionally, pneumococcal pneumonia patients may display elevated neutrophil levels, C-reactive protein (CRP) levels and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR).[] High C-reactive protein (CRP) ( 20 mg·dL(-1)) (odds ratio (OR) 2.36, 95% CI 1.45-3.85), pleural effusion (OR 2.03, 95% CI 1.13-3.65) and multilobar involvement (OR 1.69, 95%[]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    No liver pathology was found, but cardiac analysis including right heart catheterisation revealed constrictive pericarditis.[] CT showed a massive right pleural effusion and a sclerotic lesion in the right ninth rib. Histopathological examination of the rib revealed IgA lambda-type plasmacytoma.[] In a patient with inflammatory arthritis, the presence of a rheumatoid factor or anti-citrullinated protein antibody, or elevated C-reactive protein level or erythrocyte sedimentation[]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Among the most common are the following: Pneumonia and sepsis Pneumothorax Acute coronary syndrome Acute pericarditis Aortic dissection Costochondritis Pleuritis Differentiation[] He still experienced pleural effusion and had symptoms of cough and shortness of breath. Chest X-ray demonstrated bilateral pleural effusion.[] But it can also be a sign for an acute coronary syndrome (even at the age of 35) or a pericarditis. To be sure you need to consult with your GP.[]

  • Whipple Disease

    Cardiac involvement - pericarditis, myocarditis, valve lesions.[] Laboratory tests may provide several nonspecific findings that in combination can be suggestive of diagnoses such as: hypoalbuminemia, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate[] The association of mediastinal adenopathy or pleural effusion offers additional concern.[]

  • Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis

    Pericarditis and coronary vasculitis are the most frequent findings (50% of cases), but myocarditis, endocarditis, and conduction system granulomata are also described. 3[] […] thickening in paranasal sinuses Bone and cartilage destruction Lungs Multiple nodules of varying sizes, especially at bases Cavitate frequently (50%) Masses wax and wane Pleural[] Laboratory tests showed markedly elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein in the setting of negative blood and urine cultures.[]

  • Subphrenic Abscess

    In patient with subphrenic abscess early recognition of pericarditis may be life saving.[] The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is commonly elevated. Liver function tests are helpful.[] Abstract The computed tomographic scans of 38 patients with proven subphrenic abscesses and 28 patients with proven pleural effusions were reviewed without knowledge of the[]
