  • Parapharyngeal Abscess
    Leukocytes Increased

    A parapharyngeal abscess develops principally as a complication of deep neck infections caused by various gram-positive and gram-negative bacterial pathogens, and its life-threatening nature mandates early recognition. Symptoms include fever, limited neck movement, voice changes, stridor, proximal lymphadenopathy…[8]

  • Empyema
    Leukocytes Increased

    An empyema is a collection of pus within an anatomical cavity. Usually, the term refers to empyema thoracis which is the collection of pus in the pleural space. It is a pleural effusion that has become infected with bacteria resulting in the formation and collection of pus in the pleural cavity. An empyema should be…[9]

  • Urosepsis
    Leukocytes Increased

    Urosepsis is a systemic inflammatory response due to an infection affecting the urogenital tract. Lower urinary tract infection presents with frequent urination, especially during the acute phase of the infection, which often results in urethra irritation. Furthermore, urination is painful due to the irritation and…[10]
