91 Possible Causes for Lymphocytes Increased, Palatal Petechiae

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    Infectious mononucleosis should be suspected in patients 10 to 30 years of age who present with sore throat and significant fatigue, palatal petechiae, posterior cervical[] The levels of liver enzymes and atypical lymphocytes increase with age.[] Pharyngeal inflammation and palatal petechiae are more common in adolescents.[]

  • Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura

    […] the soft and hard palate [ 16 Vaisman B, Medina AC, Ramirez G.[] CONCLUSION: ITP is associated with immunity dysfunction denoted by the increase in cytotoxic T lymphocytes and the decrease in natural killer cells.[] Activated natural killer cells, B-lymphocytes and T-lymphocytes are responsible for the production of TNF-β.[]

  • Rubella

    Signs There may be petechiae on the soft palate (Forchheimer's sign) but this is not diagnostic for rubella.[] The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) examination showed lymphocytic pleocytosis, increased protein levels and a normal glucose value.[] FBC may show a low WBC count with an increased proportion of lymphocytes and thrombocytopenia (usually resolves in a month). Management There is no specific treatment.[]

  • Pharyngitis

    Tonsillopharyngeal/palatal petechiae are seen in GAS infections and infectious mononucleosis.[] A lymphocytosis (greater than 50%) or increased atypical lymphocytes (greater than 10%) may suggest infectious mononucleosis.[] It is much more likely to have pharyngeal and tonsillar inflammation (mucosal erythema and edema), palatal petechiae, well-demarcated pharyngeal/tonsillar exudates ( Figure[]

  • Adenovirus Infection

    An increase of lymphocyte numbers was clearly associated with a decrease of the plasma DNA load.[] Persistent and increasing adenovirus levels in peripheral blood are correlated with an increased risk of invasive disease and mortality.[] In our prospective study, 5 children with viraemia only survived the infection if lymphocyte numbers increased to above 0.3 10 9 /l in the period of 4 weeks following the[]

  • Acute Infectious Lymphocytosis

    petechiae and uvular oedema.[] […] an actual or relative increase in the number of lymphocytes.[] Patients with acute or chronic leukemia may also have an occurrence of atypical lymphocyte increase.[]

  • Chronic Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura

    Patients may show impaired immune regulation manifested by increased proliferation of helper T lymphocytes.[] Older age is associated with increased risk for development of chronic ITP.[] Platelet antibodies may also impair megakaryocyte development and platelet turnover, thromobopoietin levels are normal or only modestly increased and a compensatory increase[]

  • Severe Aplastic Anemia

    The intraoral examination identified bleeding gums; petechiae of the palate, tongue and cheek mucosa; and an atrophic, smooth and shining dorsal surface of the tongue.[] Engraftment was confirmed by the evidence of 100 % donor hematopoiesis; T lymphocyte subset counts also increased significantly after transplantation.[] The differential white blood count shows a decrease in most types of cells but not lymphocytes .[]

  • Erythema Infectiosum

    Petechiae on the palate may occur, as well as erythematous, swollen papillae with a white coating on the tongue (white strawberry tongue).[] […] on palate; white strawberry tongue; test positive for streptococcal infection Several weeks Impetigo Anywhere; face and extremities are most common Vesicles or pustules that[] […] throughout body, spares palms and soles Erythematous, blanching, fine macules, resembling a sunburn; sandpaper-like papules Occurs 1 to 2 days before rash develops Usually no Petechiae[]

  • Streptococcal Pharyngitis

    In children with sore throat, the presence of a scarlatiniform rash (likelihood ratio [LR], 3.91; 95% CI, 2.00-7.62), palatal petechiae (LR, 2.69; CI, 1.92-3.77), pharyngeal[] […] proportion of atypical lymphocytes.[] Scarlatiniform rash and palatal petechiae are very specific but are rarely seen in streptococcal pharyngitis.[]
