  • infection
  • It causes the sexually transmitted genitourinary infection gonorrhea as well as other forms of gonococcal disease including disseminated gonococcemia, septic arthritis, and gonococcal ophthalmia neonatorum. (wikipedia.org)
  • Diagnosis
  • Subclinical PID is a term that was originally applied to women with known tubal factor infertility linked to chronic inflammatory residua specific for PID, but without a history of diagnosis or treatment for acute PID. (news-medical.net)
  • No single laboratory test is highly specific or sensitive for the disease, but studies that can be used to support the diagnosis include the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), the C-reactive protein (CRP) level, and chlamydial and gonococcal DNA probes and cultures. (medscape.com)
  • A differential diagnosis includes lymphoproliferative lesions, thyroid ophthalmopathy, IgG4-related ophthalmic disease, sarcoidosis, granulomatosis with polyangiitis, orbital cellulitis and carotid-cavernous fistula. (wikipedia.org)
  • The presentation is pleiomorphic[disambiguation needed], making the diagnosis difficult, but the most common features of this disease involve the skin, joints, and central nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Diagnosis is generally by assessment of inflammatory markers in stool followed by colonoscopy with biopsy of pathological lesions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Centers for Diseas
  • Characterized by often debilitating fatigue , and sometimes accompanied by pain and difficulties in retaining focus, CFS/ME affects between 836,000 and 2.5 million people in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • Empirical antibiotic treatment is recommended for patients with otherwise unexplained uterine or adnexal tenderness and cervical motion tenderness, according to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). (medscape.com)
  • sexually transmi
  • Most girls with PID develop it after getting a sexually transmitted disease (STD) , such as chlamydia or gonorrhea. (kidshealth.org)
  • The classic high-risk patient is a menstruating woman younger than 25 years who has multiple sex partners, does not use contraception, and lives in an area with a high prevalence of sexually transmitted disease (STD). (medscape.com)
  • Arthritis
  • National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskelatal and Skin Diseases: "Arthritis. (webmd.com)
  • Associated complaints or diseases include arthritis, pyoderma gangrenosum, primary sclerosing cholangitis, and non-thyroidal illness syndrome (NTIS). (wikipedia.org)
  • conditions
  • Ancillary Studies to Major Ongoing Clinical Studies to extend our knowledge of the diseases being studied by the parent study investigators under a defined protocol or to study diseases and conditions not within the original scope of the parent study but within the mission of the NIDDK. (nih.gov)
  • Some inflammatory conditions are associated with the presence of scleroses in the CNS. (wikipedia.org)
  • pathways
  • Our priority is to understand the molecular pathways responsible for disease using in vitro models through to identification of biomarkers in groups of patients with a distinct disease phenotype or response to a therapeutic strategy. (bath.ac.uk)
  • vascular
  • However, one study by Mottow-Lippe, Jakobiec, and Smith suggests that the release of circulating antigens caused by local vascular permeability triggers an inflammatory cascade in the affected tissues. (wikipedia.org)
  • causes
  • There is no specific test for the disease, though now that the gene that causes the disease is known, that may change. (wikipedia.org)
  • IBD is a multifactorial disease that is nonetheless driven in part by an exaggerated immune response to gut microbiota that causes defects in epithelial barrier function. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although the causes of these diseases are unknown, genetic, environmental, immune and other mechanisms have been proposed. (wikipedia.org)
  • abnormal
  • Because lesions resemble those seen in allergic meningoencephalitis, GME is thought to have an immune-mediated cause, but it is also thought that the disease may be based on an abnormal response to an infectious agent. (wikipedia.org)
  • health
  • The CDC (the national public health institute of the United States) promotes health and quality of life by preventing and controlling disease, injury, and disability. (kidshealth.org)
  • Planned Parenthood offers information on sexually transmitted diseases, birth control methods, and other issues of sexual health. (kidshealth.org)
  • This media campaign designed to get young people to talk with their health care providers and partners about the importance of getting tested for sexually transmitted diseases. (kidshealth.org)
  • The higher incidence of PID inwomen of lower socioeconomic status is due in part to a woman's lack of education and awareness of health and disease and her accessibility to medical care. (faqs.org)
  • prevalent
  • While coronary artery disease is more prevalent in men than women, atherosclerosis of the cerebral arteries and strokes equally affect both sexes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Research
  • Our research is pointing to the central role of immune dysfunction in diseases not usually viewed as immune-mediated or driven by an inflammatory process. (novartis.com)
  • Sinus disease, allergies, and asthma have been shown to be intimately related through recent research[citation needed]. (wikipedia.org)
  • Recent research has identified some possible new variants, like the possibility to separate primary progressive MS, PPMS, after recent findings seem to point that it is pathologically a very different disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • STDs
  • This nonprofit organization is dedicated to preventing sexually transmitted diseases and offers hotlines for prevention and control of STDs. (kidshealth.org)
  • 60-75% of casesof PID are associated with sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). (faqs.org)
  • microorganisms
  • Normally the cervix produces mucus which acts as a barrier to prevent disease-causing microorganisms, called pathogens, from entering the uterus and moving upward to the tubes and ovaries. (faqs.org)
  • biopsy
  • The presence of the rash varies with time, and biopsy of these skin lesions shows a perivascular inflammatory infiltrate including granulocytes. (wikipedia.org)
  • treatment
  • Treatment of established disease may include medications to lower cholesterol such as statins, blood pressure medication, or medications that decrease clotting, such as aspirin. (wikipedia.org)
