Complement Fixing Antibody
  • Yellow fever complement-fixing antibody in high titers was found in 18 of 1,201 (1.4%) persons living in eight counties of the affected area.[ajtmh.org]
Blood Culture Positive
  • We collected data on the following diagnostic measures: fever (temperature 100.4 F), Leukocytosis (white blood cell 11X109 cells/L), positive blood culture, positive urinalysis, positive chest X-ray, and use of non-prophylactic antibiotics.[stroke.ahajournals.org]

Prognosis

  • The prognosis was grave, nearly 70% of the patients expired within 1 month, especially those with a temperature of 41 degrees C or those who reached 39 degrees C within 6 h after onset of stroke, or those who had severe fluctuations in temperature.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Currently therapy for these patients is limited, and thus the prognosis for aSAH is dismal.[grantome.com]
  • Fever is also associated with poor prognosis in patients with stroke and brain injury. Management of a patient with fever requires both the investigation of the cause as well as lowering of the temperature; various measures are described.[medlink.com]
  • In Strep TSS, bacteremia is much more common than in Staph TSS ( 60% vs 5%), and prognosis is much much worse ( 50% mortality vs 5%).[errolozdalga.com]

Etiology
