26 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Pleural Effusion, Prolactin Increased

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    Hereby, we describe a case of a patient with pulmonary plasmacytoma, who developed nodal and pulmonary MM with a pleural effusion, the radiological appearance of which mimicked[] The patient also had axillary lymphnode metastasis on the same side as the chest swelling with a contralateral pleural effusion.[] Pleural effusion Pathology: • Direct spread. • Lymphatic obstruction. • 2ry pneumonia.[]

  • Small Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    Thoracic washings may provide evidence of cancer beyond the pleura in patients without pleural effusion which may be indicative of advanced disease.[] Surprisingly, a chest radiograph revealed a mass in his left lung with ipsilateral pleural effusion.[] […] nodules or malignant pleural or pericardial effusion M1b Distant metastasis Table 1.[]

  • Relapsed Small Cell Lung Cancer

    Rova-T was withdrawn due to adverse events in 18 patients (22%), the most frequent causes including pleural effusion (n 4), pericardial effusion (n 2), and maculopapular rash[] Toxicity was generally mild to moderate: grade 3 events of 5% frequency included fatigue and pleural and pericardial effusions; and no grade 4 or 5 events were encountered[] Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome.[ 2 ] Physical examination may identify enlarged supraclavicular lymphadenopathy, pleural effusion or lobar collapse, unresolved pneumonia[]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Clinical findings, internal Hypertension, heart failure, pulmonary oedema, pleural effusions, pericardial effusion, GI bleeding due to peptic ulceration, gastritis/oesophagitis[] […] intestines Bone, joint, and muscle pain Changes in blood sugar Damage to nerves of the legs and arms ( peripheral neuropathy ) Dementia Fluid buildup around the lungs ( pleural[] effusion ) Heart and blood vessel complications High phosphorous levels High potassium levels Hyperparathyroidism Increased risk of infections Liver damage or failure Malnutrition[]

  • Sarcoidosis

    (especially the erythrocyte sedimentation rate, ESR ).[] In her case, the increased calcitriol is derived from sarcoid granulomas and renal sources enhanced by the effect of estradiol and prolactin on the conversion of 25(OH)D to[] Despite overall clinical management with diuretics, pleural effusion persisted and the patient underwent medical thoracoscopy with pleural biopsy.[]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    Initial labs showed pancytopenia, bandemia, proteinuria, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and elevated d-dimer.[] Studies do not agree on whether taking hormones increases the risk for lupus or for lupus symptom flares.[] Eosinophilic pleural effusion in elderly patients is most commonly due to malignancies and infections.[]

  • Hashimoto's Thyroiditis

    […] and prolactin, and increased thyroid peroxidase antibody and thyroglobulin antibody.[] One year later, she presented with generalized edema, pericardial and pleural effusion, positive ANA, thrombocytopenia, increased anti-cardiolipin IgG and nephritis, being[] Untreated hypothyroidism can lead to an enlarged heart ( cardiomyopathy ), worsening heart failure, and an accumulation of fluid around the lungs ( pleural effusion ) or heart[]

  • Bone Metastasis

    Multiple sclerotic changes were detected in the systemic bones at that time, and new carcinomatous bilateral pleural effusion developed.[] , or in bone function, increases the impact of prolactin signaling in breast cancer bone metastases.[] The second most common complication is pleural effusion. Other complications include infection, haemorrhage and bronchopleural fistulae.[]
