140 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Proximal Muscle Weakness

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    Elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate accompanies the symptoms. See also erythrocyte sedimentation rate.[] Over time, disuse of muscle causes atrophy with proximal muscle weakness.[] It typically causes severe pain and stiffness in proximal muscles, without weakness or atrophy, and nonspecific systemic symptoms.[]

  • Polymyositis

    […] in 90% Elevated sedimentation rate (ESR) of 50 - 100 in 40% and an ESR above 100 in 10% ( Ann Rheum Dis 1993;52:857 ) Radiology description MRI T2 may show edema, which is[] From Wikidata Jump to navigation Jump to search rare idiopathic inflammatory myopathy characterized by symmetric proximal muscle weakness and elevated muscle enzymes edit[] Biochemical investigation revealed a raised erythrocyte sedimentation rate of 36 mm/h, elevated creatinine kinase levels (14,363 IU/L) and raised liver enzymes (alanine aminotransferase[]

  • Dermatomyositis

    […] serum C-reactive protein (CRP) level, or Accelerated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) Muscle biopsy findings compatible with inflammatory myositis: Perivascular inflammation[] Later she developed progressive, symmetrical proximal muscle weakness.[] C-reactive protein (CRP) is elevated in about half of the patients, and unlike in systemic lupus erythematosus, CRP is more reliable than erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR[]

  • 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.[] Typical MRI and muscle biopsy changes were rated by all to be the most useful clinically relevant diagnostic criteria after proximal muscle weakness, characteristic skin rash[]

  • Mixed Connective Tissue Disease

    Muscle enzymes may be elevated. C-reactive protein and erythrocyte sedimentation rate ( ESR ) may be elevated. Patients may also have hypergammaglobulinaemia.[] We present the case of a 50-year-old black woman whose inaugural presentation of MCDT was oropharyngeal dysphagia, symmetrical proximal muscle weakness, tongue atrophy and[] These may include: Elevated sedimentation rate (also known as erythrocyte sedimentation rate or ESR), an indicator of inflammation.[]

  • Temporal Arteritis

    These criteria were the same as for the traditional format, except that elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate was excluded, and 2 other variables were included: scalp tenderness[] 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[]

  • Diffuse Scleroderma

    Markers Serological markers include 3 : elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) rheumatoid factor (RF): positive in 30-40% antinuclear antibodies (ANA): 35-96% anti[]

  • Overlap Syndrome

    SSc patients with serum CK more than 2 times upper limit, myalgia, and proximal muscle weakness were analyzed for the presence of polymyositis with electromyography (EMG)[] In view of proximal and symmetrical muscle weakness, raised serum CPK, typical myopathic EMG and skin rash, this patient was diagnosed to have Polymyositis-Dematomyositis[] Furthermore, this investigation includes only clinically relevant causes, whereas Medsger et al . [ 3 ] reported 90% prevalence of proximal muscle weakness, of which only[]

  • Eosinophilic Fasciitis

    Peripheral blood eosinophilia was noted in 33 of 52 patients, hypergammaglobulinemia was noted in 17 of 49, and elevated sedimentation rate was noted in 15 of 52.[] […] and Swelling in the Neck 522 Case 83 A Woman with Muscle Pains and Dark Urine 526 Case 84 A Woman with Progressive Proximal Muscle Weakness 533 Case 85 A Sedentary Man with[] sedimentation rate, elevated IgG, and eosinophilia. eosinophilic fasciitis inflammation of fasciae of the limbs, associated with eosinophilia, edema, and swelling.[]

  • Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

    The only laboratory abnormalities in this patient included elevated serum transaminases, a mildly elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and a moderately elevated level[] Proximal muscle weakness with or without tenderness is common, typically among people who have elevated levels of muscle enzymes (eg, CK).[] Pericarditis usually follows arthritis and is usually associated with fever, leukocytosis and an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate.[]
