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.[] Additional karyotype abnormalities evolved increasingly, and leukocytosis with blasts with more complex karyotypic abnormalities appeared 5 months later.[] Twenty patients (50%) had leukocytosis ( 10,000 WBC/μL) during induction therapy.[]

  • Blast Phase

    Patients with leukocytosis should be closely monitored.[] 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.[] Ten months later, he presented with fevers and leukocytosis (WBC, 109.7 10 9 /L), with 20% blasts.[]

  • 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.[] We report a case in a 27-year-old man with leukocytosis (10.6 x 10(3)/microL with 34% blasts), thrombocytopenia and splenomegaly.[] Despite cholecystectomy and treatment with broad-spectrum antibiotics, she remained febrile with a leukocytosis of up to 80,000 cells/µL.[]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    However, leukocytosis with cell counts 25,000 mm 3 may designate infection and require further evaluation ( 41 ).[] In ketoacidosis, leukocytosis is attributed to stress and maybe correlated to elevated levels of cortisol and norepinephrine ( 42 ).[] 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.[]

  • Agranulocytosis

    Physiological leukocytosis often takes place and it is primarily related to the increased circulation of neutrophils, especially during the last trimester of pregnancy.[] 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[] Some time a rebound leukocytosis may occur.[]

  • Drug-induced Neutropenia

    Some time a rebound leukocytosis may occur.[] 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[] 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[]

  • 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[] One month later, he presented with progressive leukocytosis (mostly neutrophilia) and splenomegaly.[] We report two cases of biclonal CLL presented with leukocytosis, typical morphological features, and distinct immunophenotype of CLL.[]

  • Toxic Shock Syndrome

    Laboratory findings consistent with tss include leukocytosis, elevated prothrombin time, hypoalbuminemia, hypocalcemia, and pyuria A severe illness caused by infection with[] 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[] 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[]

  • Sepsis

    […] septicemia Sepsis with Streptococcus pneumoniae septicemia Sepsis without acute organ dysfunction Sepsis without acute organ dysfunction due to anaerobic septicemia Sepsis[] The following are organ system–specific etiologies of possible sepsis: Skin/soft tissue: Necrotizing fasciitis, cellulitis, myonecrosis, or gas gangrene, among others, with[] […] ascendant and descendant thoracic aortic aneurysm, presenting 7 years after thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair with thoracic pain, fever, inflammatory indexes increase, leukocytosis[]

  • Infective Endocarditis
