226 Possible Causes for Provocation Test Positive

  • Epilepsy

    OBJECTIVE: To study seizure control and rates of foetal malformation in pregnancies of women with epilepsy treated with antiepileptic drug polytherapy. METHODS: The use of conventional statistical methods to analyse the Australian Pregnancy Register records of 1810 pregnancies in women with epilepsy, 508 treated[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Musculoskeletal Lower Back Pain

    Tripod Sign The tripod sign is a provocative test that is conducted while the patient is in the seated position.[stanfordmedicine25.stanford.edu] As in the straight leg test, a positive test involves pain in the lower back, often radiating down the leg.[stanfordmedicine25.stanford.edu]

  • Hypersensitivity

    Jutel 2005 All subjects fulfilled the inclusion criterion of a positive conjunctival provocation test.[doi.org] Future studies could include bronchial or nasal provocation tests as the "gold standard".[doi.org] Dolz 1996 The concentration of antigen necessary to make the conjunctival provocation test positive increased by 250 BU/ml in the active group (P 0.001) between T0 and T4.[doi.org]

  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

    Adjunctive Tests The new DC/TMD provides the core provocation tests necessary for the diagnosis of masticatory muscle and TMJ pain, but false positives and negatives can occur[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atopy

    A patient with asthma was defined as one who has symptoms compatible with asthma and showed either a positive provocation testing or bronchodilator reversibility.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Food Allergy

    The results of prick tests to peach, pear, kiwi, melon, and nut were negative. Nasal provocation with olive pollen gave positive results.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, the clinical relevance of positive APT reactions is still to be proven by standardised provocation and avoidance tests and may also depend on the APT model used as[web.archive.org] An open oral provocation test with olive oil did not cause symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Allergic Rhinitis

    Detection of local sIgE in nasal secretions during natural exposure to aeorallergens and a positive nasal allergen provocation test with local production of tryptase, eosinophil[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] leukocyte–lymphocyte inflammatory pattern, with an increase in the nasal fluids of eosinophils, mast cells and T lymphocytes during natural exposure to aeroallergens, as well as a positive[doi.org] Detection of local slgE in nasal secretions during natural exposure to aeorallergens and a positive nasal allergen provocation test with local production of tryptase, ECP,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hay Fever

    Detection of local sIgE in nasal secretions during natural exposure to aeorallergens and a positive nasal allergen provocation test with local production of tryptase, eosinophil[doi.org] […] immediate and dual response to a nasal allergen provocation test with local production of tryptase and eosinophil cationic protein and an increase of nasal sIgE to inhalant[doi.org] […] leukocyte–lymphocyte inflammatory pattern, with an increase in the nasal fluids of eosinophils, mast cells and T lymphocytes during natural exposure to aeroallergens, as well as a positive[doi.org]

  • Orthostatic Hypotension

    * with provocation of symptoms The "Fall-Back Position" for diagnosis Proven orthostatic hypotension and strong suspicions based on consistent history * Tilt table testing[unmc.edu] Standard " for diagnosis Proven orthostatic hypotension (OH) (see definition above) and symptoms reproduced via: 1) clinically demonstrated (OH) with symptoms or 2) Tilt table testing[unmc.edu]

  • Asthma

    […] identified as having aspirin induced asthma by oral provocation testing, history, or both.[bmj.com] provocation test, non smokers, with a diagnosis of mild or moderate asthma following ATS 1987 criteria (ATS 1987) were included.[dx.doi.org] One of 20 exposed workers had a positive specific bronchial provocation test, and 1 had specific IgG against phthalic anhydride.[doi.org]
