  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    FBC: normochromic, normocytic anaemia and reactive thrombocytosis are common in active disease.[] Extensive investigations did not reveal evidences of other systemic causes such as malignancy or systemic vasculitis.[] Similarly, the platelet count is usually normal but thrombocytosis occurs in response to inflammation.[]

  • Temporal Arteritis

    Laboratory abnormalities associated with TA include a highly elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, anemia, and thrombocytosis, and mildly increased alkaline phosphatase[] Related Vasculitis Articles Fertility and Vasculitis - Dr David Jayne Vasculitis and the Eyes - Dr Catherine Guly Further reading Giant Cell Arteritis: Suspect it, treat it[] Hayreh 2003 points out that although essential thrombocytosis has increased thrombotic morbidity, the thrombocytosis in GCA is reactive and thus an antithrombotic agent is[]

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    Most people with polymyalgia rheumatica have an unusually high number of these cells (thrombocytosis).[] It also highlights the beneficial effect of TNF-antagonists in vasculitis associated to UC.[] Anemia of chronic disease, leukocytosis, reactive thrombocytosis, and decreased albumin are also common. Alkaline phosphatase and hepatic enzymes may be elevated.[]

  • Kawasaki Disease

    The typical laboratory features of Kawasaki disease, such as elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, leukocytosis, anemia, positive C-reactive protein and thrombocytosis[] Help spread awareness about vasculitis on your social network by replacing your current Facebook Cover artwork with this exclusive VF image.

  • Cerebral Angiitis

    Anemia, thrombocytosis, elevated liver enzymes and low complement are frequent associated findings.[] "Central Nervous System Vasculitis (CNS Vasculitis)". Cleveland Clinic. Retrieved 1 May 2015. Scolding NJ, Wilson H, Hohlfeld R, Polman C, Leite I, Gilhus N (July 2002).[] […] and drugs ( amphetamine, cocaine and heroin ), some forms of cancer ( lymphomas, leukemia and lung cancer ) and other forms of systemic vasculitis such as granulomatosis[]

  • Churg-Strauss Syndrome

    EGPA (Churg-Strauss) is one of the rarest systemic vasculitis, with less than 2 people in a million population being diagnosed each year.[] Eosinophilic leukocytoclastic vasculitis shows eosinophilic infiltrates in combination with vasculitic changes.[] With treatment and medication some folks never even get to the third phase which is: The systemic vasculitis phase.[]

  • Polyarteritis Nodosa

    Diagnostic Testing: Nonspecific inflammatory markers include elevated ESR or CRP, leukocytosis, anemia of chronic disease, and thrombocytosis.[] Our understanding of PAN and necrotizing vasculitis has evolved over time.[] Patients may have thrombocytosis, markedly elevated ESR, anemia caused by blood loss or renal failure, hypoalbuminemia, and elevated serum immunoglobulins.[]

  • Oculomotor Apraxia

    Weight loss, cardiovascular and abdominal manifestations, increased ESR, anaemia, leucocytosis and thrombocytosis appeared to be significantly associated with unfavourable[] It is not clear that Cogan’s syndrome is a primary vasculitis. Large vessel vasculitis predominates in the aorta and its branches and resembles Takayasu’s arteritis.[] Articles Fertility and Vasculitis - Dr David Jayne Further reading A shifty diagnosis: Cogan's syndrome.[]
