  • Extensive Burns

    Pathophysiology : Systemic Effects  Immune system  Global depression in immune function  Diminished production of macrophages  Increased neutrophil count (dysfunctional[slideshare.net] The addition of 2.2% of the rare earth metal cerium salt to silversulphadiazine causes the formation of a relatively hard, yellow, leather-like eschar with excellent resistance[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ) followed by decrease after 48- 72 hrs  Impaired cytotoxic T cell activity  Increase risk of infections  Depressed Th function 51 51.[slideshare.net]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Patients with rheumatoid arthritis appear undernourished and chronically ill. Most are anemic because of the effect of the disease on blood-forming organs.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Abdominal Visceral Abscess

    With perforation of the appendix, the white count and percentage of neutrophils increase markedly.[research.ece.ncsu.edu] In contrast, if a patient develops abdominal pain, becomes febrile, or appears critically ill, surgical exploration should be considered for repair or drainage, especially[wjes.biomedcentral.com] The white cell count may be normal or slightly elevated in the range of 10-12,000 with some increase in the number of neutrophils.[research.ece.ncsu.edu]

  • Pancreatic Abscess

    Risk assessment of acute pancreatitis (AP) depends upon clinical indices (eg, Ranson, Imrie, or Apache I/II Scores), the presence of extrapancreatic complications, an elevated C-reactive protein or hematocrit, an elevated procalcitonin, and the finding of pancreatic necrosis on CT scanning. The prognosis may be worse[…][emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    We report a case of localized fibrous mesothelioma (LFM) of the pleura with bronchogenic carcinoma. LFM arose in the visceral pleura of the upper lobe in the left lung, and lung adenocarcinoma was located in the ipsilateral lower lobe. LFM is a rare mesenchymal tumor of the pleura.

  • Perianal Abscess

    PURPOSE: The features of perianal abscess and fistula-in-ano in infants are different from those of older children, and there is controversy regarding their treatment. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of various methods used for their management. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    To report a case of a ruptured tubo-ovarian abscess which induced septic shock in a postmenopausal woman. A 53-year-old postmenopausal woman was transferred to our emergency department for drowsiness, hypotension, and lower abdominal discomfort. Transabdominal sonography and computed tomography showed a[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Myelocytic Leukemia

    If the white blood cell count, specifically the neutrophil count, is very low, this can weaken the immune system’s functioning and make it harder for a patient to fight off[mdanderson.org] Patients with AML often have decreased neutrophil levels despite an increased total white blood cell (WBC) count.[emedicine.medscape.com] count (ANC) surpasses 10,000/mm 3 after the chemotherapy-induced ANC nadir has occurred Monitor CBCs at least twice weekly Dosages of NEUPOGEN that increase the ANC beyond[neupogenhcp.com]
