102 Possible Causes for Gas Gangrene, Leukocytosis, Staphylococcal Pneumonia

  • Acute Myelocytic Leukemia

    Thus, the bone marrow and peripheral blood are characterized by leukocytosis with a predominance of immature cells, primarily blasts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Additional karyotype abnormalities evolved increasingly, and leukocytosis with blasts with more complex karyotypic abnormalities appeared 5 months later.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Twenty patients (50%) had leukocytosis ( 10,000 WBC/μL) during induction therapy.[doi.org]

  • Blast Phase

    Patients with leukocytosis should be closely monitored.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At BP, 63% of patients had leukocytosis (white blood cell count 10 x 10(9)/L), 74% had anemia (hemoglobin value (c) 2009 Wiley-Liss, Inc.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ten months later, he presented with fevers and leukocytosis (WBC, 109.7 10 9 /L), with 20% blasts.[bloodjournal.org]

  • Acute Myelomonocytic Leukemia

    Hematology testing disclosed leukocytosis of 95,600/mm3 with 65% monocytes and 9% blast cells. Infiltrated erythema and nodules were disseminated over most of her body.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a case in a 27-year-old man with leukocytosis (10.6 x 10(3)/microL with 34% blasts), thrombocytopenia and splenomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Despite cholecystectomy and treatment with broad-spectrum antibiotics, she remained febrile with a leukocytosis of up to 80,000 cells/µL.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    However, leukocytosis with cell counts 25,000 mm 3 may designate infection and require further evaluation ( 41 ).[web.archive.org] In ketoacidosis, leukocytosis is attributed to stress and maybe correlated to elevated levels of cortisol and norepinephrine ( 42 ).[web.archive.org] On admission, leukocytosis with cell counts in the 10,000–15,000 mm 3 range is the rule in DKA and may not be indicative of an infectious process.[web.archive.org]

  • Agranulocytosis

    Physiological leukocytosis often takes place and it is primarily related to the increased circulation of neutrophils, especially during the last trimester of pregnancy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, "-osis" is commonly used in blood disorders to imply cell proliferation (such as in "leukocytosis"), while "-penia" to imply reduced cell numbers (as in "leukopenia[en.wikipedia.org] Some time a rebound leukocytosis may occur.[medicineworld.org]

  • Drug-induced Neutropenia

    Some time a rebound leukocytosis may occur.[medicineworld.org] Leukocytosis does not seem to be clearly dose related, and it is difficult to measure the extent of its effects. [6] The concern of clozapine rechallenge is a repeat of blood[e-ijas.org] If the count falls to 200/ μ L, the inflammatory response may be muted and the usual inflammatory findings of leukocytosis or WBCs in the urine or at the site of infection[merckmanuals.com]

  • Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

    Duplicate publication ( n 1) Anecdotal case reports ( n 3: one report of severe immune thrombocytopenic purpura following a 10-week course of alemtuzumab; one report of gas[pubmedcentral.nih.gov] One month later, he presented with progressive leukocytosis (mostly neutrophilia) and splenomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report two cases of biclonal CLL presented with leukocytosis, typical morphological features, and distinct immunophenotype of CLL.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Toxic Shock Syndrome

    Laboratory findings consistent with tss include leukocytosis, elevated prothrombin time, hypoalbuminemia, hypocalcemia, and pyuria A severe illness caused by infection with[icd9data.com] This is of interest because shortly after the identification of SEB in the 1950's there were many cases of staphylococcal pneumonia following the flu in the New England area[scielo.br] If patients present with hypotension and evidence of a necrotizing process have crepitus or radiographic evidence of gas in the tissue, either gas gangrene caused by Clostridium[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Sepsis
