980 Possible Causes for Iron Deficiency, Leukocytosis

  • Malignant Neoplasm

    Laboratory findings showed no abnormalities, except for a slightly elevated C-reactive protein value and iron deficiency anemia.[]

  • Hookworm Infection

    Iron deficiency anemia poses an important public health problem for women of reproductive age living in developing countries.[] The laboratory examination showed leukocytosis with eosinophilia and a stool examination by the concentration method was negative four times.[] […] disease, the blood hemoglobin may be as low as 1 gm/100 ml and occasionally, especially with A. duodenale infection, peripheral eosinophilia may reach 90-100% with or without leukocytosis[]

  • Ulcerative Colitis

    This patient was evaluated for iron deficiency anemia and underwent hemicolectomy for extensive right-side predominant inflammatory pseudopolyps.[] Laboratory investigations showed a leukocytosis with a left shift. She was initially treated for presumed community-acquired pneumonia (CAP).[] , which are needed by patients who experience chronic intestinal bleeding and may develop iron deficiency anemia.[]

  • Henoch-Schönlein Purpura

    The diagnoses of HSP and iron-deficiency anemia were made, and iron was prescribed for treatment of the anemia.[] Lab findings and studies Elevated serum IgA levels Normochromic anemia May be seen with GI bleeding Markers of inflammation (leukocytosis, ESR) Usually elevated when a bacterial[] Laboratory values on admission revealed leukocytosis (17,500/μL [reference range, 4500–11,000/μL]), elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (42 mm/h [reference range, 0–20[]

  • Crohn's Disease

    Weight loss as well as specific vitamin and mineral deficiencies (for example, iron deficiency anemia) may occur.[] Fever and neutrophilic leukocytosis are also common features.[] Common laboratory findings include mild anemia, mild leukocytosis, elevated C-reactive protein (CRP), and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR).[]

  • Polycythemia Vera

    During multivariable analysis, leukocytosis 15 109/l, palpable splenomegaly and grade 1 BM reticulin fibrosis remained significant.[] Most patients with PV are iron deficient, and treatment often includes hematocrit control with phlebotomy, which may exacerbate iron deficiency-associated complications.[] In general, PV patients with monocytosis were significantly older and displayed higher frequencies of leukocytosis (81% vs. 50% at AMC 1 109 /L) and TET2/SRSF2 mutations ([]

  • Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome

    NMS is more common in men than women, in persons with pre-existing medical and neurologic disorders, mental retardation, agitation, and iron deficiency.[] Agitation, rigidity, elevation in creatine kinase, and leukocytosis were associated findings. NMS was suspected on postoperative day 10.[] The two characteristic laboratory findings reported in 75% of cases are a high CPK and leukocytosis. 95% of patients are iron deficient. The CSF is usually normal.[]

  • Esophageal Carcinoma

    Carcinoma of the Esophagus • Predisposing factors • Men women • Achalasia (polypoid mass in middle or distal third) • Asbestosis • Plummer-Vinson syndrome (iron deficiency[] Thereafter, the hypercalcemia, leukocytosis, and other associated symptoms all improved.[] […] disorder characterized by hyperkeratosis of the palms and soles and leukoplakia in the mouth), Plummer-Vinson syndrome (a condition occurring in patients with long-standing iron-deficiency[]

  • Renal Infarction

    Hemogram was normal except for evidence of iron deficiency anemia, and the erythrocyte sedimentation rate was 42.[] The majority of reported cases have presented with laboratory abnormalities, most notably leukocytosis and elevated lactate dehydrogenase (LDH).[] Leukocytosis ( 10 10(9)/L) and elevated lactate dehydrogenase levels ( 620 IU/L) were the most prominent laboratory findings.[]

  • Visceral Larva Migrans

    On admission, hematological examination of peripheral blood showed iron deficiency anemia (Hemoglobin 7.5 g/dl), leukocytosis (40,000 cells/mm 3 ) accompanied by marked eosinophilia[] Two weeks later, a decrease in leukocytosis was noted. Thiabendazole therapy was continued for 15 more days.[] A 44-year-old man presented with chills, eruptions, marked leukocytosis (31,400/microlitter), and eosinophilia (eosinophil, 72%).[]
