455 Possible Causes for Leukocytosis, Patient Appears Acutely Ill, Seizure

  • Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation

    On physical examination, the patient appeared acutely ill, but her heart sounds were normal. A neurologic examination revealed no abnormalities.[kjim.org] Treatment of seizures Treatment of seizures depends on the underlying disorder causing the DIC.[epilepsy.com] By day 10, the patient’s coagulation profile, liver enzymes, and leukocytosis normalized, and renal function significantly improved.[innovationsincrm.com]

  • Porphyria

    Then, she had episodes of seizure and confusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Computed tomography was unremarkable, and blood tests demonstrated hyponatremia, acute kidney injury, and a neutrophilic leukocytosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Since the origin of the pain is neurologic, there is no fever and leukocytosis. Between the attacks, the patient fully recovers from the pain.[symptoma.com]

  • Acute Hepatic Porphyria

    Abstract Seizures may occur in acute intermittent porphyria or other hepatic porphyrias.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Because the pain is neuropathic, it often is not accompanied by fever or leukocytosis.[hematologyandoncology.net] Pain is rarely accompanied by fever, leukocytosis, or peritonitis.[lecturio.com]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    Both the patients were presented with seizures and PRES on brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Unexplained abdominal pain occurred before the onset of seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The analysis of hematological and biochemical parameters during the second crisis showed anemia, leukocytosis, hyponatremia, mild hypokalemia, uremia and elevated C-reactive[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical findings Abdominal colic, constipation, fever, leukocytosis, postural hypotension, peripheral neuritis, polyneuropathy, paraplegia, urinary retention, respiratory[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Bacterial Meningitis

    However, their findings suggest that that the risk of bacterial meningitis in children presenting with simple febrile seizure is very low.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] in induction of a fever response and triggers the release of other cytokines, and may also influence transport of compounds into the brain, leading to cerebrospinal fluid leukocytosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Blood tests: Neutrophilic leukocytosis is seen in the blood.[symptoma.com]

  • Angioedema

    To help address this question, the Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics research network conducted a retrospective observational new-user cohort study of seizure[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Laboratory tests revealed leukocytosis (15 400 per mm3) and normal complement 1 esterase inhibitor levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Others 9 , 16 , 17 have reported seizures and hemiparesis.[jamanetwork.com]

  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

    PaO2) MetHb (exclude) ECG: sinus tachycardia, ischaemia urinalysis (positive for albumin and glucose in chronic intoxification; bHCG for pregnancy) Laboratory FBC (mild leukocytosis[lifeinthefastlane.com] Contrary to the seizures, status epilepticus has been rarely observed in these conditions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Seizures occurred significantly more often in patients with a COHb level of or 20%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningitis

    We report a rare case of large frontal sinus osteoma with intracranial extension, associated with meningitis and the development of seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with CSF non-pleocytosis had much lower peripheral leukocytosis (10 656 3,662 vs 12 403 4,207/mm 3 , P 0.014) and C-reactive protein (0.7 0.8 vs 1.2 1.5 mg/dL, P[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, clinical evidence of meningeal inflammation, as manifested by nuchal rigidity, did accurately identify all 4 patients with CSF leukocytosis 1000 WBCs/mL ( table 5[dx.doi.org]

  • Hereditary Angioedema

    Physical Examination Patients having acute attacks of HAE may appear severely ill. The first priority in the evaluation is to ensure an adequate airway.[emedicine.medscape.com] Fever and leukocytosis are unusual, and their presence should raise suspicion of another diagnosis, such as appendicitis.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Others 9, 16, 17 have reported seizures and hemiparesis.[archinte.ama-assn.org]

  • Kawasaki Disease

    The typical laboratory features of Kawasaki disease, such as elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, leukocytosis, anemia, positive C-reactive protein and thrombocytosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This indicated acute encephalopathy with biphasic seizures and late reduced diffusion (AESD); severe neurological sequelae remained.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , any patient in whom Kawasaki disease is strongly suspected should receive echocardiography because abnormalities that aid in diagnosis may appear within the first 10 days[aafp.org]
