  • Childhood Dermatomyositis

    Laboratory studies showed an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate of 24 mm/h. Blood work up revealed normal levels of calcium, phosphorus and PTH.[] A 62-year-old woman presented to the emergency department with malaise, lethargy and proximal muscle weakness. She had a similar presentation in childhood.[] Systemic inflammatory signs (temperature: more than 37 C [98.6 F] at axilla, elevated serum C-reactive protein level or accelerated erythrocyte sedimentation rate of more[]

  • Dermatomyositis

  • Temporal Arteritis

    On lab testing, he had an elevated sedimentation rate (sed rate), which reflects inflammation in the body. His sed rate was 70 while a normal level is between 0 and 20.[] It presents with headache, fever, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate and anemia.[] Elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate is a common laboratory finding in temporal arteritis, and abnormalities on temporal artery biopsy are the gold standard for diagnosis[]
