40 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Positive STD Test

  • Syphilis

    Read our syphilis fact sheet ( Spanish version ) for information about who gets syphilis, symptoms of syphilis, and what to do if you test positive. Get Tested.[] Patients with secondary syphilis should be tested for other STDs and for asymptomatic neurosyphilis.[] It is very important to be screened for other STDs, including syphilis, every six months.[]

  • Hepatitis B

    […] white blood count) Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (may be elevated) C-reactive protein assay Urinalysis Serum multiphasic analysis with determination of the serum iron level[] The following laboratory tests may be helpful in the evaluation of hidradenitis suppurativa: Complete blood cell count with differential and platelet counts (occasionally elevated[]

  • Hepatitis A

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

  • Hepatitis C

    A specific assay has been developed for a blood-borne non-A, non-B hepatitis (NANBH) virus in which a polypeptide synthesized in recombinant yeast clones of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) is used to capture circulating viral antibodies. HCV antibodies were detected in six of seven human sera that were shown[…][]

  • Gram-Negative Pneumonia

    […] erythrocyte sedimentation rates (ESRs) and C-reactive protein (CRP) levels in patients with septic arthritis Imaging studies Computed tomography (CT) scanning of the head[] […] then lead me to get tested for STD's.[] […] stain, culture, glucose/protein levels) Blood cell counts: Assessment for anemia, leukocytosis, thrombocytosis, and/or thrombocytopenia Acute phase reactants: Characteristic elevated[]

  • Therapeutic Abortion

    , STI screen if indications Studies Ultrasound for dates, r/o ectopic or molar pregnancy Routinely done: Urine/serum hCG, Rh typing If high risk, consider: STD testing, Hct[] Uterine, cervical procedures HIV, coagulopathies, heart dz, seizures, immunosuppression, asthma, drug reactions -Physical Exam VS, heart, lung, abd Pelvic for ut size and position[]

  • Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome

    Laboratory tests reveal an elevated level of lactate dehydrogenase, anemia, and an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate.[] To get tested for HIV or other STDs, find a testing site near you.[] It should be noted that Jia 2012 reported on all serodiscordant couples in China who test HIV‐positive at the National Center for AIDS/STD Control and Prevention at the Chinese[]

  • Tertiary Syphilis

    Our patient suffered from a troubled sight, pain in the right hypochondrium, one enlarged submandibular lymph node, an elevated sedimentation rate, disturbed liver tests and[] Patients with secondary syphilis should be tested for other STDs and for asymptomatic neurosyphilis.[] Patients with syphilis should be tested for other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including HIV infection, at diagnosis and 6 mo later.[]

  • Mycoplasma Infection

    rate (ESR), white blood cell count, and cold agglutinin titer are elevated when the disease is present.[] For example, early studies found that people who tested positive for M. genitalium often had sexual partners who were infected with the disease as well.[] […] in a Petri dish (bacterial culture) requires special conditions and takes weeks, making microbiology culture a poor diagnostic tool. 2.Blood tests such as an erythrocyte sedimentation[]

  • 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.[] 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[] […] for an STD (the non-STD group).[]
