11 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Prolactin Increased, Temporal Lobe Tumor

  • Small-Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    Small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) represents 15-20% of all lung cancers. It is characterised by rapid growth and early metastatic dissemination. Generally, the prognosis of these patients is poor. When brain metastases develop, the prognosis is even poorer. Most of these cases present parenchymal metastases;[…][]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    Metastasis of bronchogenic carcinoma to the chest wall and axillary lymphnodes is a rare occurrence. This study reports the case of a patient presenting with chest wall swelling as initial symptom which on evaluation was found to be a lymphnode metastasis. The patient also had axillary lymphnode metastasis on the[…][]

  • Recurrent Small-Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    We designed a phase II study of weekly irinotecan (CPT-11) and carboplatin for refractory or relapsed small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and assessed the response rate, survival, and toxicity. Twenty-nine patients with refractory or relapsed SCLC were entered onto the trial. The median time off chemotherapy was 3.5[…][]

  • Renal Cell Carcinoma

    History Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) may remain clinically occult for most of its course. The classic triad of flank pain, hematuria, and flank mass is uncommon (10%) and is indicative of advanced disease. Twenty-five to thirty percent of patients are asymptomatic, and their renal cell carcinomas are found on incidental[…][]

  • Pituitary Adenoma

    Ganglioglioma is a generally benign tumor, mostly occurring in patients 30 years old. Temporal lobe is most frequently involved.[] The systemic symptoms (eg, fever, arthralgia, elevated sedimentation rate, lupuslike rashes) that accompany some myxomas may be due to the production of the proinflammatory[] Prolactinomas increase blood levels of prolactin.[]

  • Endometrial Adenocarcinoma

    Laboratory investigations were normal except for elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR: 101mm Hg) and CA125-(33.5U/l) levels.[] The alteration in the estrous cycle is caused by a decrease in progesterone with an increase in the estrogen:progesterone ratio most likely induced by a decrease in prolactin[]

  • Pituitary Stalk Section

    Temporal lobe epilepsy. Hydrocephalus. Cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea.[] For each patient, we performed an assessment by including additional paraclinic exploration: - The measurement of erythrocyte sedimentation rate and reactive ceruleoplasmin[] Chordoma with increased prolactin levels (pseudoprolactinoma) mimicking pituitary adenoma: A case report with review of the literature.[]
