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

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    Infected patients typically have an ill or anxious appearance.[] Streptococcus pneumoniae is a Gram-positive coccus that may be found in pairs or in short chains.[] Gram positive coccus (usually seen as diplococci with a distinctive “lancet shape”. Belongs to the alpha hemolytic "viridans” streptococci. b.[]

  • Necrotizing Fasciitis

    Cause of Necrotizing Fasciitis Group A Strep Streptococcus pyogenes , also known as group A beta-hemolytic Streptococcus, or group A strep (GAS) is a gram-positive coccus[] This increases leukocyte function and may increase destruction of anaerobic bacteria, reduce tissue edema, stimulate fibroblast proliferation, increase collagen formation,[] GAS is Gram-positive, non-motile, round to ovoid coccus shaped bacteria, occurring in chains or pairs.[]

  • Pharyngitis due to Group A Beta-Hemolytic Streptococcus

  • Infective Endocarditis

    Abstract Gemella is a facultative anaerobic Gram-positive coccus and a rare cause of infective endocarditis (IE).[] […] mobility of leukocytes Enhanced leukocyte phagocytosis Endotoxin effects decreased Increased proliferation of T cells [56] Management [ edit ] Fever should not necessarily[] Histology of Blood Cells, Cardiac Muscle, Blood Leukocytes, Platelets • Non-formed Elements Plasma erythrocyte neutrophil eosinophil basophil lymphocyte Increased platelet[]

  • Breast Abscess

    Finegoldia magna is a Gram-positive anaerobic coccus involved in a wide variety of infections. We report a unusual case of breast abscess in a non-puerperal patient.[] All TB patients showed an increased total leukocyte but decreased lymphocyte numbers as compared with the control group.[] This time point has been found to be suitable for measuring most cytokines [ 39 ] except IFN-γ responses which are increased in up to 6 days of culture [ 40 ].[]

  • Toxic Shock Syndrome

    Finegoldia magna is an anaerobic Gram positive coccus, previously classified as Peptostreoptococcus magnus.[] - 57% Hyperbilirubinemia - 54% Elevated levels of hepatic enzymes - 50% Leukocytosis - 48% Abnormal urinary sediment - 46% Elevated creatine kinase levels - 41% Immature leukocytes[] Elevated serum creatinine levels Hemoglobinuria Hypoalbuminemia Hypocalcemia Elevated creatine kinase levels (suggesting necrotizing fasciitis or myositis) Leukocytosis (with increased[]

  • Prostatic Abscess

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

  • Meningococcemia

    coccus, in pairs with adjacent sides flattened.[] 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[] It produces catalase and is oxidase positive. It produces acid from glucose and maltose. Fresh isolates require enriched media like blood or chocolate agar.[]

  • Staphylococcus Aureus Meningitis

    If patients appear ill and findings suggest meningitis, antibiotics (see Table: Initial Antibiotics for Acute Bacterial Meningitis ) and corticosteroids are started as soon[] (PMN) leukocytes); WBC counts 10 cells/mm 3 Decreased glucose concentration ( Increased protein concentration ( 45 mg/dl) Note: normal cytology of the CSF of an infant is[] In acute bacterial meningitis, expect an elevated peripheral WBC with increased percentage of bands and polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs).[]
