21 Possible Causes for Gram-Positive Coccus, Leukocytes Increased, Patient Appears Acutely Ill

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    Infected patients typically have an ill or anxious appearance.[symptoma.com] Streptococcus pneumoniae is a Gram-positive coccus that may be found in pairs or in short chains.[histopathology-india.net] Gram positive coccus (usually seen as diplococci with a distinctive “lancet shape”.

  • Prostatic Abscess

    Staphylococcus aureus, a Gram-positive coccus, is a common human pathogen, yet is a rarely reported cause of prostatic abscess [ 1 ].[bmcinfectdis.biomedcentral.com]

  • Meningococcemia

    coccus, in pairs with adjacent sides flattened.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An increased number of white cells are seen under the microscope, with meningitis confirmed when the leukocyte count in the CSF is 5 cells/µL ( bacterial meningitis often[dermnetnz.org] It produces catalase and is oxidase positive. It produces acid from glucose and maltose. Fresh isolates require enriched media like blood or chocolate agar.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
