30 Possible Causes for Globulins Increased, Virus Associated Hemophagocytic Syndrome

  • Sickle Cell Disease

    If a person has sickle cell disease, it is present at birth. But most infants do not have any problems from the disease until they are about 5 or 6 months of age. Every state in the United States, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories require that all newborn babies receive screening for sickle cell[…][nhlbi.nih.gov]

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    , gamma globulin increased less frequently, and beta globulin, which was normal in practically all the cases of infectious mononucleosis, was increased in a considerable number[link.springer.com] Severe chronic active Epstein-Barr virus infection accompanied by virus-associated hemophagocytic syndrome, cerebellar ataxia and encephalitis.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] rate of EBV reactivation after HSCT is expected to increase.[dx.doi.org]

  • Chronic Active Hepatitis B

    In all patients AST and ALT values returned to normal and there was a fall in serum delta GT and improvement of prothrombin time. an increase of globulins was noted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bone marrow biopsy showed hypocellularity, histiocytic hyperplasia, and hemophagocytosis consistent with a virus-associated hemophagocytic syndrome (VAHS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The positive anti-HCV antibody common in patients with IACAH is caused by disease related hypergammaglobulinemia and steroid therapy usually leads to decrease in gamma globulin[hepatitiscentral.com]

  • Chronic Active Hepatitis

    Severe chronic active hepatitis, defined as the presence of a fivefold increase in serum aminotransferases and a twofold rise in gamma globulin for at least 10 weeks, is considered[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bone marrow biopsy showed hypocellularity, histiocytic hyperplasia, and hemophagocytosis consistent with a virus-associated hemophagocytic syndrome (VAHS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The positive anti-HCV antibody common in patients with IACAH is caused by disease related hypergammaglobulinemia and steroid therapy usually leads to decrease in gamma globulin[hepatitiscentral.com]

  • Lymphoma

    The erythrocyte sedimentation rate is a sign of activity of the disease and is caused by the increase of the a2-globulins and of the gamma globulins.[lecturio.com] Hodgkin lymphoma-associated hemophagocytic syndrome: a disorder strongly correlated with Epstein-Barr virus.

  • Autoimmune Hepatitis

    More than 80% of affected individuals have increased gamma globulin in the blood.[hepatitiscentral.com] Virus-, drug- and lymphoma-associated hemophagocytic syndrome (HPS) was ruled out. Therefore, the patient was diagnosed with autoimmune-associated HPS (AAHS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Relapse is characterized by an increase in the serum aminotransferase level to more than 3-fold the upper limit of normal and/or increase in the serum gamma-globulin level[gastrotraining.com]
