A murine model of renal abscess formation. (1/489)

We developed a murine model of kidney abscess by direct renal injection of either Escherichia coli (1 x 10(6) to 7 x 10(6) organisms) or sterile medium. Bacterial infection produced renal abscesses, bacteremia, and late-onset leukocytosis in all animals. Controls were unaffected. This model may be useful for the study of various sequelae of kidney infection.  (+info)

Effects of interleukin-1 receptor antagonist overexpression on infection by Listeria monocytogenes. (2/489)

Interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra) is a naturally occurring cytokine whose only known function is the inhibition of interleukin-1 (IL-1). Using a reverse genetic approach in mice, we previously showed that increasing IL-1ra gene dosage leads to reduced survival of a primary listerial infection. In this study, we characterize further the role of endogenously produced IL-1ra and, by inference, IL-1 in murine listeriosis. IL-1ra overexpression inhibits, but does not eliminate, primary immune responses, reducing survival and increasing bacterial loads in the target organs. We demonstrate that IL-1ra functions in the innate immune response to regulate the peak leukocyte levels in the blood, the accumulation of leukocytes at sites of infection, and the activation of macrophages during a primary infection. Reduced macrophage class II major histocompatibility complex expression was observed despite increased gamma interferon (IFN-gamma) levels, suggesting that IL-1 activity is essential along with IFN-gamma for macrophage activation in vivo. We also show that IL-1ra plays a more limited role during secondary listeriosis, blunting the strength of the delayed-type hypersensitivity response to listerial antigen while not significantly altering cellular immunity to a second infectious challenge. When these results are compared to those for other mutant mice, IL-1ra appears to be unique among the cytokines studied to date in its regulation of leukocyte migration during primary listeriosis.  (+info)

Tumor necrosis factor alpha is a determinant of pathogenesis and disease progression in mycobacterial infection in the central nervous system. (3/489)

The pathogenesis of tuberculous meningitis, a devastating complication of tuberculosis in man, is poorly understood. We previously reported that rabbits with experimental tuberculous meningitis were protected from death by a combination of antibiotics and thalidomide therapy. Survival was associated with inhibition of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) production by thalidomide. To test whether cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) levels of TNF-alpha correlated with pathogenesis, the response of rabbits infected in the central nervous system (CNS) with various mycobacterial strains was studied. CNS infection with Mycobacterium bovis Ravenel, M. bovis bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) Pasteur, and M. bovis BCG Montreal were compared. M. bovis Ravenel induced the highest levels of TNF-alpha in the CSF in association with high leukocytosis, protein accumulation, and severe meningeal inflammation. BCG Pasteur had intermediate effects, and BCG Montreal was the least virulent. In addition, M. bovis Ravenel numbers were highest in the brain and CSF and the bacilli also disseminated more efficiently to distant organs, compared with BCG Pasteur and BCG Montreal. In subsequent experiments, rabbits were infected with either recombinant M. bovis BCG Montreal (vector), or BCG Montreal expressing the murine gene for TNF-alpha (BCG mTNF-alpha). BCG Montreal was rendered virulent by the expression of murine TNF-alpha, as demonstrated by high CSF leukocytosis, high protein accumulation, severe meningeal inflammation, persistent bacillary load, and progressive clinical deterioration. Taken together, these results demonstrate that the level of TNF-alpha produced during mycobacterial CNS infection determines, at least in part, the extent of pathogenesis.  (+info)

Cerebral malaria versus bacterial meningitis in children with impaired consciousness. (4/489)

Cerebral malaria (CM) and acute bacterial meningitis (ABM) are the two common causes of impaired consciousness in children presenting to hospital in sub-Sahara Africa. Since the clinical features of the two diseases may be very similar, treatment is often guided by the initial laboratory findings. However, no detailed studies have examined the extent to which the laboratory findings in these two diseases may overlap. We reviewed data from 555 children with impaired consciousness admitted to Kilifi District Hospital, Kenya. Strictly defined groups were established based on the malaria slide, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leucocyte count and the results of blood and CSF culture and CSF bacterial antigen testing. Our data suggests significant overlap in the initial CSF findings between CM and ABM. The absolute minimum proportions of children with impaired consciousness and malaria parasitaemia who also had definite bacterial meningitis were 4% of all children and 14% of children under 1 year of age. The estimated maximum proportion of all children with impaired consciousness and malaria parasitaemia in whom the diagnosis was dual or unclear was at least 13%. The finding of malaria parasites in the blood of an unconscious child in sub-Saharan Africa is not sufficient to establish a diagnosis of cerebral malaria, and acute bacterial meningitis must be actively excluded in all cases.  (+info)

Neutrophil A2A adenosine receptor inhibits inflammation in a rat model of meningitis: synergy with the type IV phosphodiesterase inhibitor, rolipram. (5/489)

Bacterial meningitis is a disease worsened by neutrophil-induced damage in the subarachnoid space. In this study, the A2A adenosine receptors on human neutrophils were characterized, and the role of A2A receptors on the trafficking of leukocytes to the cerebrospinal fluid and on blood-brain barrier permeability (BBBP) was assessed in a rat meningitis model. Neutrophils bind the A2A selective antagonist, 125I-ZM241385 (Bmax=843 receptors/neutrophil; KD=0.125 nM). A selective A2A receptor agonist, WRC-0470 (2-cyclohexylmethylidene-hydrazinoadenosine; 0.03-1 microM), alone and synergistically with the type IV phosphodiesterase inhibitor, rolipram, increased neutrophil [cAMP]i and reduced cytokine-enhanced neutrophil adherence, superoxide release, and degranulation. These effects of WRC-0470 were reversed by ZM241385 (100 nM). In a lipopolysaccharide-induced rat meningitis model, WRC-0470 (0-0.9 microgram/kg/h), with or without rolipram (0-0.01 microgram/kg/h), inhibited pleocytosis and reduced the lipopolysaccharide-induced increase in BBBP, indicative of decreased neutrophil-induced damage.  (+info)

Studies on treatment of acute promyelocytic leukemia with arsenic trioxide: remission induction, follow-up, and molecular monitoring in 11 newly diagnosed and 47 relapsed acute promyelocytic leukemia patients. (6/489)

Fifty-eight acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) patients (11 newly diagnosed and 47 relapsed) were studied for arsenic trioxide (As2O3) treatment. Clinical complete remission (CR) was obtained in 8 of 11 (72.7%) newly diagnosed cases. However, As2O3 treatment resulted in hepatic toxicity in 7 cases including 2 deaths, in contrast to the mild liver dysfunction in one third of the relapsed patients. Forty of forty-seven (85.1%) relapsed patients achieved CR. Two of three nonresponders showed clonal evolution at relapse, with disappearance of t(15;17) and PML-RARalpha fusion gene in 1 and shift to a dominant AML-1-ETO population in another, suggesting a correlation between PML-RARalpha expression and therapeutic response. In a follow-up of 33 relapsed cases over 7 to 48 months, the estimated disease-free survival (DFS) rates for 1 and 2 years were 63.6% and 41.6%, respectively, and the actual median DFS was 17 months. Patients with white blood cell (WBC) count below 10 x 10(9)/L at relapse had better survival than those with WBC count over 10 x 10(9)/L (P =.038). The duration of As2O3-induced CR was related to postremission therapy, because there was only 2 of 11 relapses in patients treated with As2O3 combined with chemotherapy, compared with 12 of 18 relapses with As2O3 alone (P =.01). Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) analysis in both newly diagnosed and relapsed groups showed long-term use of As2O3 could lead to a molecular remission in some patients. We thus recommend that ATRA be used as first choice for remission induction in newly diagnosed APL cases, whereas As2O3 can be either used as a rescue for relapsed cases or included into multidrug consolidation/maintenance clinical trials.  (+info)

Hydroxyurea in the management of the hematologic complications of chronic granulocytic leukemia. (7/489)

The effect of hydroxyurea in 35 patients with chronic granulocytic leukemia (CGL), who either had entered an accelerated phase of the disease or had experienced excessive myelosuppression following alkylating agents, was studied. By either intravenous or oral administration, the drug was successful in reducing peripheral leukocyte and blast counts in all cases and in reducing splenomegaly in 13 of 17 patients. The median duration of disease control was 75 days in myeloproliferative acceleration and 27 days in frank blastic transformation. Mild nausea and vomiting were experienced by most patients, but reversible bone marrow suppression occured in only three patients. The drug proved useful in 19 patients who demonstrated myeloproliferative acceleration, especially in controlling excessive leukocytosis and/or thrombocytosis. Rapid reduction of an elevated blast cell count was achieved in nine patients who presented in blastic crisis, in an attempt to eliminate the associated risk of cerebral vascular leukostasis. Five patients who required treatment for their disease following splenectomy in the chronic phase were also well controlled. Hydroxyurea appears to have a definite role in the management of these hematologic complications of CGL.  (+info)

Epidemiological and clinical differences of snake bites among children and adults in south western Saudi Arabia. (8/489)

OBJECTIVES: To compare the clinical course and complications of snake bite in children and adults. METHODS: A retrospective review of 66 patients (28 children and 38 adults) admitted after snake bites for management at the Prince Abdullah Hospital in Bisha, in the south western part of Saudi Arabia, during the period May 1992 to May 1995. RESULTS: No significant difference was found in time of bite, site of bite, and sex preference between adults and children. Local complications, such as tissue necrosis, were commoner in children (14%) than in adults (5%). Systemic manifestations were also more commonly seen in children than in adults; this is possibly due to a higher ratio of injected venom to body mass in children. Leukocytosis was seen in 54% of children (adults 13%), a low haemoglobin concentration in 14% of children (adults 11%), prolonged prothrombin and partial thromboplastin times in 41% of children (adults 16%), while a high creatine phosphokinase was seen in 31% of children compared with 17% of adults. CONCLUSIONS: Children seem to have more serious local and systemic complications than adults and this may indicate the need to use a higher dose of antivenom than that being used at present.  (+info)

Previous multicenter/multinational studies were evaluated to determine the frequency of the absence of cerebrospinal fluid pleocytosis in patients with central nervous system infections, as well as the clinical impact of this condition. It was found that 18% of neurosyphilis, 7.9% of herpetic meningoencephalitis, 3% of tuberculous meningitis, 1.7% of Brucella meningitis, and 0.2% of pneumococcal meningitis cases did not display cerebrospinal fluid pleocytosis. Most patients were not immunosuppressed. Patients without pleocytosis had a high rate of unfavorable outcomes and thus this condition should not be underestimated. (C) 2017 The Author(s).

Background: Tumor-related leukocytosis is a paraneoplastic syndrome that is encountered occasionally in the clinical course of patients with lung carcinoma. The aim of this study is to evaluate the prognostic significance of leucocytosis in patients with metastatic non small cell lung carcinoma. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 205 cases of metastatic non small cell lung carcinoma diagnosed between January 2007 and December 2012 at the department of medical oncology, Hassan II University Hospital of Fez, Morocco. Clinical and laboratory data were collected including white blood cells at baseline. Leucocytosis was studied in relation to overall survival and progression free survival. Results: The frequency of leucocytosis was of 57.5%. Patients with leucocytosis had shorter overall survival (OS, p = 0.015) and disease-free survival (DFS, p < 0.0001) than those without leucocytosis. In multivariable analysis, patients with leucocytosis had a significantly greater risk of death and recurrence than
Definitive diagnosis of meningitis is made by analysis of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) culture or polymerase chain reaction (PCR) obtained from a lumbar puncture (LP), which may take days. A timelier diagnostic clue of meningitis is pleocytosis on CSF analysis. However, meningitis may occur in the absence of pleocytosis on CSF. Areas of Uncertainty: A diagnosis of meningitis seems less likely without pleocytosis on CSF, leading clinicians to prematurely exclude this. Further, there is little available literature on the subject. Ovid/Medline and Google Scholar search was conducted for cases of CSF culture-confirmed meningitis with lack of pleocytosis. Inclusion criterion was reported cases of CSF culture-positive or PCR positive meningitis in the absence of pleocytosis on LP. Exclusion criteria were pleocytosis on CSF, cases in which CSF cultures/PCR were not performed, and articles that did not include CSF laboratory values. A total of 124 cases from 51 articles were included. Causative organisms were

AU - Davis, A. E.. AU - Hugli, T. E.. PY - 1985. Y1 - 1985. N2 - Numerous biologically active fragments have been described that are derived from the C3 molecule. Recently, a polypeptide (M(r) 41,000) generated from the α chain of human iC3b by limited proteolysis with plasma kallikrein was shown to exhibit several biological functions. This C3-derived cleavage product, C3d-K, suppresses mitogen- and antigen-induced proliferation of human T-lymphocytes and induces leukocytosis in rabbits. We have identified and synthesized a portion of C3d-K that is associated with the leukocytosis phenomenon. A nonapeptide corresponding to the amino-terminal nine residues of C3d-K was synthesized using conventional Merrifield solid-phase peptide chemistry; the structure of this peptide is Thr-Leu-Asp-Pro-Glu-Arg-Leu-Gly-Arg ...

HIV infection may mimic a variety of other medical illnesses. Specific differential diagnosis depends on the mode of presentation. In patients presenting with constitutional symptoms such as weight loss and fevers, differential considerations include cancer, chronic infections such as tuberculosis and endocarditis, and endocrinologic diseases such as hyperthyroidism. When pulmonary processes dominate the presentation, acute and chronic lung infections must be considered as well as other causes of diffuse interstitial pulmonary infiltrates. When neurologic disease is the mode of presentation, conditions that cause mental status changes or neuropathy-eg, alcoholism, liver disease, kidney dysfunction, thyroid disease, and vitamin deficiency-should be considered. If a patient presents with headache and a cerebrospinal fluid pleocytosis, other causes of chronic meningitis enter the differential. When diarrhea is a prominent complaint, infectious enterocolitis, antibiotic-associated colitis, ...

To the editor: In their recent paper Lithium Salts: 1970-1975 (Ann Intern Med 83:527-533, 1975), Baldessarini and Lipinski briefly mention the leukocytosis (granulocytosis) that occurs in patients taking lithium. The authors hint that the corresponding temporary increase in circulating adrenocorticosteroids is probably not responsible for the persistent leukocytosis. There is evidence suggesting that lithium induces human granulocyte proliferation (1, 2). Circulating (in vivo) unsaturated vitamin B12 binding capacity, an index of total blood granulocyte pool (3), is elevated in patients with granulocytosis who are taking lithium (1). Lithium added to human bone marrow in vitro also increases granulocyte colony formation ...

Background: The aim of the present study was to investigate any prognostic value of pre-treatment anemia, leukocytosis and thrombocytosis in patients with advanced pretreated NSCLC. Methods: A randomized, multicenter phase II study comparing the IGF-1R modulator AXL with standard docetaxel in the treatment of previously treated stage IIIB or IV NSCLC patients was conducted in 2011-2013. Clinical and laboratory data were collected, including serum values for hemoglobin (Hgb), white blood cells (WBC) and platelets (Plt) at baseline. These hematological parameters were studied in relation to overall survival using Kaplan-Meier product-limit estimates and multivariate Cox proportional hazards regression models. Results: The median overall survival for all patients was 8.9 months. Patients with leukocytosis (WBC | 9 x 109/L) had a significantly shorter median overall survival (4.2 months) as compared with those with a WBC ≤ 9 x 109/L at baseline (12.3 months) with a corresponding of HR 2.10 (95% CI: 1.29
Trauma remains the 5th leading cause of death in the United States, and is rapidly been understood as a leading cause of both mortality and significant morbidity world-wide. Devastating head injury and non-salvageable blood loss remain the leading causes of death in early time points following admission for trauma. Easily measurable and trackable parameters are essential to aid clinicians to appreciate the degree of stress and SIRS response in critically ill and injured patients following poly-trauma, shock and subsequent organ dysfunction.. The leukocytosis response following trauma is well described. A SIRS response comprises of leukocytosis which rapidly returns to normal over the initial 3 days. The neutrophil pattern is also well recognized and they clearly play an important role in the response to tissue injury[10]. It is well recognized that a perpetuation of the SIRS response is associated with worse outcomes, specifically as they relate to infectious complications, in trauma ...

In the settings of marked leukocytosis or thrombocythemia, the leukocytes or platelets may vigorously consume the dissolved oxygen from an arterial blood gas specimen. The phenomenon is sometimes referred to as leukocyte larceny or platelet larceny in the literature.3,4,6 This occurs immediately after blood is drawn out of patients, and within 5 min the consumption can be large, even if the sample is incubated in ice.7 There is an inverse correlation between total count of the eliciting cells and PaO2 and SaO2,1,4,5 which is well illustrated in the present report (see Fig. 2).. In 1911, Onaka was the first to discover the respiration of blood platelets.4 Forty years later, DeWardener and Young found that the increased in vitro oxygen utilization affected the estimation of SaO2.4 The consumption was directly proportional to the number of circulating leukocytes.4 In addition to cell count, the type and maturity of proliferating leukocytes were other important determinants in the rate of fall ...
On May 6, 2011, a 14-year old, previously healthy girl was admitted in another hospital in our city because of the recent onset of diarrhea (7-8 bowel movements per day), vomiting, and lack of appetite resulting in a weight loss of 1.5 kg in the past 10 days. Biochemical results showed marked leukocytosis (white blood cells: 18 970 mm3), high C-reactive protein (41 mg/dL), and hypertransaminasemìa (aspartate aminotransferase: 503 IU/L; alanine aminotransferase: 669 IU/L). Parenteral ampicillin was started, but 4 days later, because of the persistence of symptoms, the patient underwent an abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan that showed massive thrombosis of the inferior vena cava (up to the entrance in right atrium) and of the hepatic veins (Fig 1), with a patent portal vein, hepatosplenomegaly, mild ascites, and a collateral pleural effusion.

Leukocytosis, a common laboratory finding, is most often due to relatively benign conditions (infections or inflammatory processes). Much less common but more serious causes include primary bone marrow disorders. The normal reaction of bone marrow to infection or inflammation leads to an increase in the number of white blood cells, predominantly polymorphonuclear leukocytes and less mature cell forms (the
Owing to the strong (,90%) PD-L1 expression on the tumour membrane shown by immunohistochemistry using E1L3N monoclonal antibody (Cell Signaling Technology, Leiden, The Netherlands) with a Leica Bond III autostainer (Leica Biosystems, Nanterre, France), along with the strong tumour-infiltrating immune PD-L1 staining of the CT-guided diagnostic biopsies sampled prior to first-line chemotherapy, nivolumab infusion was administrated despite the patients poor PS. The patient was then transferred to a palliative care unit. Her general condition improved spectacularly within 10 days, allowing her to be discharged from hospital on Day 15. She experienced complete pain relief, enabling all analgesic agents to be discontinued. With nivolumab infusions continued every 15 days, CT scanning revealed major partial response after four infusions, and the leukocytosis decreased quickly. Ten months after the first nivolumab infusion, while still receiving nivolumab every other week, the patient returned to ...

In a patient without an obvious cause for neutrophilia (e.g., signs or symptoms of infection or inflammation), it is most appropriate to simply repeat a complete blood count (CBC) on a new sample to confirm that neutrophilia is truly present. Although uncommon, sample mislabeling, laboratory error, spurious neutrophilia, and/or patient stress may all result in an erroneous or transient neutrophilia that may simply disappear on repeat testing.. If neutrophilia is present on repeat testing, the next step is to thoroughly review the remainder of the CBC for other abnormalities and ask the laboratory to review a well-made peripheral smear for red cell, white cell, and platelet morphology.. Review the CBC; in particular, look for any of the following:. leukocytosis. anemia. polycythemia. thrombocytopenia. thrombocytosis. high or low MCV. Review the peripheral smear for:. General assessment (i.e., evidence of red cell or platelet clumping that may cause spurious leukocytosis and ...
Dr. Kouchakoff, Institute of Clinical Chemistry Switzerland, studied the simple observation of the digestive leukocytosis and made an amazing discovery, he found that unaltered food (i.e. food that had not been overheated, or refined) caused no reaction in the blood. But food that had been heated beyond a certain temperature (unique to each food), or food that was processed, always caused a rise in the number of white blood cells. He called this not a digestive leukocytosis, but a pathological leukocytosis - a reaction to a foreign invader!! ...

Consider, for a moment, INJURY AND REPAIR. How healthy Nature always mends and obliterates; or, at the worst, endeavors to make the best of things. She may not be able to set a broken bone perfectly, but she will mend it, where this is possible, and make it strong. Take simple fracture of bone: here the process of repair is absolutely dramatic. Blood and lymph are instantly poured out; there is a leucocytosis. Granulation tissue is formed in the clot by proliferation of fibroblasts. The special white cells multiply and swarm to the spot. The osteoblasts to enclose the fracture, and to fill, with temporary bone, that part of the medullary canal, till it is splinted most perfectly, with an internal rod to strengthen and keep it still; while pain, that guardian angel, gives instant warning should any movement endanger the reparative mechanism. Then, true bone is formed to knit the fractured surfaces. This perfected, the osteoclasts (the bone-eaters) get to work, and quietly and imperceptibly remove ...
After splenectomy anemia usually develops quickly and reaches its height in from three to six weeks; then with gradual improvement the blood picture approaches the normal after about three to four months, with complete return to normal in five to ten months. Accompanying this is marked leucocytosis reaching its height in twenty-four hours but persisting to a slight degree for several months. Variations, however, may occur, in that the anemia may develop slowly and be of slight degree, or the reparative process may be delayed and up to ten months incomplete. The anemia is, however, inevitable, as is also, later, some degree of repair. ...

A patient presents with generalized fatigue and weakness night sweats, a 20-lb weight loss over the last 6 months, and a dull heaviness in his abdomen on the left side. Whats the diagnosis?
Good evening, thanks for the question. Abnormalities of blood test results should be confirmed again by the symptoms felt by the patient as well as with abnormalities obtained from physical examination on the patient. To determine how dangerous it is for general health it is also necessary to know the rate of decline or increase from the normal limit value.. For example in the case of increased leukocytes or called leukocytosis. Leukocytosis indicates several underlying causes, including causes of malignancy or non-malignancy. If the increase is not very high then it can be suspected of non-malignant causes such as bacterial infections. The doctor needs to confirm based on the symptoms complained of by the patient and physical examination to determine the source of the infection, it can come from the respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproductive, etc. Stressor conditions can also cause temporary leukycytosis such as surgery, exercise, injury, and emotional stress. While the cause of malignancy ...

Question 1:. A 54-year-old man presents with a 2-year history of episodic, migratory arthralgia, fever, pruritic rash, 60-pound weight loss, headaches, and joint stiffness. Episodes consist of 2-3 days of joint pain that is accompanied by a pruritic rash lasting for about 24 hours. Physical examination demonstrates numerous, scattered, 1-2 cm urticarial pink papules on the trunk and upper extremities. There is no evidence of swollen joints, but bilateral inguinal adenopathy is present. Laboratory evaluation is significant for an elevated CRP (81 mg/L, normal 0-4.9 mg/L) and ESR (73 mm/hr, normal 0-30mm/hr), a mild leukocytosis (12x10^3/uL, normal 3.4-10.8x10^3/uL), and an IgA gammopathy. Rheumatoid factor, ANA, and complement levels are within normal limits. A lymph node biopsy, bone marrow biopsy, and bone survey yielded normal results. Treatment with oral corticosteroids provided significant symptomatic relief for the joint pain and rash without complete resolution ...

AU - Huang, Wan Ting. PY - 2011/11/1. Y1 - 2011/11/1. N2 - Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a type of T-cell lymphoma with a relatively favorable prognosis. However, a certain group of ALCLs is highly aggressive, featuring paraneoplastic leukocytosis (PL) in clinical presentation. The present study evaluated five cases of ALCL presenting with PL, including four men and one woman, with a median age of 58years. All cases revealed leukocytosis with a range from 15.3 to 112.9×10 3/μL. Five (100%) and 4 (80%) cases demonstrated immunoreactivity for granulocyte-colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), respectively. There were significant differences in the expression of G-CSF and TNF-α between ALCL cases with or without PL (p,0.05 for both). The prognosis of ALCL ...
Vogt in 1906 and Koyanagi in 1929 both described patients with bilateral anterior uveitis, vitiligo, poliosis, alopecia, and dysacusia. Harada in 1926 described patients with posterior uveitis, exudative retinal detachment, and cerebrospinal fluid pleocytosis. Over time it was recognized that there was significant overlap in the clinical characteristics of these patients and that these different clinical features were manifestations of the same disease. Hence, ophthalmologists began to call this constellation of clinical findings Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome or simply VKH. Some authors have also called this condition uveo-meningitic syndrome because of the frequent combination of uveitis and meningitis ...

Bottom line: This study is interesting because it gives us a glimpse of the time course of leukocytosis in patients with injured spleens. If you need to follow the WBC for other reasons, if gives a little insight into what might be attributable to the spleen. Splenectomy generally results in a chronically elevated WBC count, which tends to vary in the mid-teens range. Embolization (in this study) transiently elevates the WBC count, but it then drops back to normal.. The big problem with this study (besides it being small) is that it fails to recognize that there are many different shades of embolization. Splenic artery? Superselective? Selective? I suspect that the WBC count in main splenic artery embolization may behave much like splenectomy in terms of leukocytosis. And the conclusion about splenic function being related to WBC count was pulled out of a hat. Dont believe it.. Related posts:. ...

In medicine, pleocytosis is an increased cell count (from Greek pleion, more), particularly an increase in white blood cell count, in a bodily fluid, such as cerebrospinal fluid. It is often defined specifically as an increased white blood cell count in cerebrospinal fluid. Increased white blood cell count in the blood is called leukocytosis.

Sepsis is a common cause of morbidity and death in intensive care units. Clinical and laboratory signs of systemic inflammation, including changes in body temperature, tachycardia, or leukocytosis, are neither sensitive nor specific enough for the diagnosis of sepsis. The diagnosis of sepsis is difficult, because clinical signs are unspecific. These signs include tachycardia, leucocytosis, tachypnoea, and pyrexia, which are collectively termed a systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). SIRS is very common in critically ill patients, being found in various conditions including trauma, surgery, burns, pancreatitis, post-cardiac arrest syndrome, cardiac surgery. Microbiological culture can be used to distinguish sepsis from non-infectious conditions. However, this method lacks sensitivity and specificity, and there is often a substantial time delay. So these signs can also be misleading because critically ill patients often present with the systemic inflammatory response syndrome without ...

The present study comprises observations on the course and outcome of experimentally produced Type I pneumococcus lobar pneumonia in dogs. It was found that within certain limits of dosage the outcome of the disease was closely related to the amount of culture and the volume of the starch inoculum employed. The much higher mortality rate resulting from simply increasing the volume of starch in which the pneumococci were suspended, appeared to be due chiefly to the greater area of lung tissue initially involved. Certain striking relationships were observed to exist between the leucocytic response, extent of pulmonary involvement, bacteremia and outcome. Marked changes in the number of white blood cells at end of the first 24 hours of the disease provided more valuable prognostic information than either the blood culture or the size of the lesion. Dogs showing high white counts at this stage seldom succumbed, while absence of leucocytosis and leucopenia were associated with a mortality which ...

Laboratory evaluation shows an elevated ESR in half of the cases.4 Leucocytosis is generally absent. Serum levels of muscle enzymes such as CPK and LDH are usually normal or mildly elevated.8 Serum levels of aspartate and alanine transaminases are generally normal.. Bedside ultrasonography is the first-line imaging diagnostic modality in diabetic myonecrosis. Ultrasonography generally reveals a well-marginated, hypoechoic, intramuscular lesion with the following additional features: internal linear structures that suggest muscle fibers coursing through the lesion, lack of a predominately anechoic region, and absence of motion or swirling of fluid with transducer pressure.18 The advantages of ultrasonography include easy availability, noninvasiveness, early diagnosis, and exclusion of other causes such as soft-tissue abscess.. Imaging studies may be quite useful in the diagnosis of diabetic myonecrosis and can simultaneously exclude other differential diagnoses such as cellulitis, abscess, ...
In the splenectornized dog the anemia caused by hemolytic poisons (hemolytic immune serum and sodium oleate) and by bleeding is of a severer grade, runs a longer course, and is accompanied by a less rapid regeneration of the blood than is the case in the normal dog. Also in the splenectomized dog, especially after the use of hemolytic serum, the leucocytosis is greater than in the normal animal.. The splenectomized dog almost uniformly exhibits an increased resistance of the red cells to hypotonic salt solution, but after the administration of hemolytic poisons, and especially hemolytic serum, this increased resistance disappears and a decreased resistance persists for long periods of time. The same change occurs in the normal dog, but in the latter the return to the previous degree of resistance is more rapid than in the splenectomized animal.. ...

A 34 year old man presented with an 8 year history of mild muscle pain and stiffness on exertion especially in the cold. Clinical examination was normal. Apart from a mild persistent leucocytosis, his routine investigations were normal including creatine kinase activity, electromyography and nerve conduction studies. An ischaemic exercise test produced a slow and incomplete rise in lactate. Histological examination showed non-specific myopathic changes in some quadriceps femoris muscle fibres. Investigation of muscle metabolism by spectrofluorometric analysis of muscle enzyme activity and by muscle fibre incubation studies revealed a severe defect in glucose phosphorylation, associated with an electrophoretically abnormal hexokinase. Further metabolic studies suggest that the block in glucose metabolism is by-passed via an enhanced phosphorylation of fructose by the abnormal hexokinase.. ...

Luekocytosis literally means abnormal increase in the Leukocytes or the white blood cells. Luekocytosis can be affirmed by if the number of leukocytes that are circulating in the peripheral blood exceeds the Normal White Blood Cell Count of 10,000 white cells per microliter.. As production and release of white blood cells is expected in cases of fighting foreign microorganisms that attempt to invade the body. Luekocytosis can also be caused by disorders in the immune system and by bone marrow tumors.. An increase in the Granulocytes (white blood cells with large granules in their cytoplasm) is noticeable during pregnancy. This increase gets more exaggerated during the labor and the first postpartum week.. Infants and newborns normally have a high count of leukocytes. This high level is very noticeable with neutrophil which drops down within 2 weeks after birth.. Luekocytosis can also be a result of heavy exercises, severe physical or emotional stress, expose to sunlight or cold.. Luekocytosis ...

He had low-grade elevated temperature. Vital signs were otherwise normal. Tenderness and firmness of the epigastrium and left upper abdominal quadrant were noted. There was no palpable mass.. Leukocytosis was noted. Basic metabolic profile, hepatic chemistries, lipase, lactate, and urinalysis were all normal. Computed tomographic scan of the abdomen and pelvis showed an 8.0 x 9.0 x 9.6 cm, heterogeneous, left-sided abdominal mass, inseparable from adjacent loops of small bowel, with irregular peripheral enhancement and evidence of central necrosis. There was no bowel obstruction. Based on the imaging findings, the interpreting radiologist raised concern for malignancy. Percutaneous biopsy of the abdominal mass was planned. However, fevers persisted, leukocytosis worsened, and repeat imaging showed further enlargement of the mass, with findings suspicious for bowel perforation and abscess. Percutaneous drainage of 650 milliliters of purulent fluid was performed. Culture of this fluid ultimately ...

Esophageal cancer is the eighth-most common cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. The most common presenting symptom in advanced distal esophageal cancer is the sensation of sticking food, but it may sometimes present with bleeding and related complications, or asymptomatic leukocytosis. We present the case of a 77-year-old afebrile man with chronic alcoholism and a dilated thoracic esophagus with painful, progressive, and persistent dysphagia and leukocytosis of unknown origin. A 77-year-old man with a past medical history of hypertension and colonic cancer status post right hemicolectomy (surveillance negative) presented to the emergency department with painful, progressive, persistent, and worsening dysphagia for the past three weeks ...
Summary: In this 1953 lecture, celebrated nutritional and medical authority Dr. Ralph Bircher of Switzerland touts the virtues of raw foods. He begins by discussing a seldom-mentioned but universal reaction to eating cooked food known as digestive leukocytosis: Some message sent by the palate to the marrow through the vegetative [autonomic] nerve system releases a deployment of leucocytes which swarm out to the walls of the intestines, especially of the colon, as if to defend a frontline. In other words, eating cooked foods sets off the immune system. Bircher then cites the work of Dr. Paul Kouchakoff who showed that digestive leukocytosis does not happen whenever a meal consists of, or even begins with raw vegetable food. (See Dr. Kouchakoffs seminal study, The Influence of Food Cooking on the Blood Formula of Man.) Bircher also addresses the subject of enzymes in raw foods, saying there are specific enzymes in fresh and living plant cells which are very delicate and which the human ...
Leukocytosis is one of the well-recognized side effects of cigarette smoking. The dose of smoking plays a major role in causing smoke-induced leukocytosis. Immunopharmacology bases most of their test results based on cigarette drug test, though the exact mechanism of smoke-induced variations in the immune response is poorly understood, frequent cigarette smoke test positive in many cases has lead to change in the primary immune response of the smoker. It is also reported to cause tangible effects on the secondary antibody response of the smoker! It is due to this concept cotinine blood test is being an important part in determining the medical insurance limitations.. Cigarette smoking is a dangerous mix of complex substances and most of them can potentially influence the immune system. The B cell membrane signal transduction pathway is greatly affected by nicotine which is present in cigarette smoke. The levels of these harmful substances can be studied at random using the Cotinine saliva ...

Virchow spoke of a physiologic leukocytosis of pregnancy, and by the weight of his authority the assumption was given validity, repeated in textbooks, but as far as can be found out, never very seriously investigated. De Lee1 elaborates the idea by stating that during pregnancy, from the first few months, there is a decrease of the red blood cells and an increase of the white blood cells, the latter out of proportion to the former yet seldom exceeding 15,000; that the younger forms increase so that the blood of pregnancy resembles that in an acute infectious disease, and further that ...
European Leukemia Net updated the recommendations for management of APL in 2019(14). For non-high-risk APL patients (WBC ≤10x109/l), either ATRA plus ATO without chemotherapy or standard ATRA-idarubicin therapy were recommended as induction treatment, which was consistent with NCCN guidelines (3). In both guidelines, when and how to use cytoreduction therapy during ATRA plus ATO-based induction treatment was not discussed. However, the risks of DS may increase with the increase of WBC count, which may lead to other serious side effects. Hence, a randomized clinical trial was designed to compare the efficacy of ATRA-ATO vs. ATRA-ATO plus chemotherapy in all-risk patients with APL (15), but the results have not yet been published.. Our previous study found that WBC count can be conveniently used to direct cytoreduction chemotherapy during induction treatment for low-intermediate risk APL. When WBC count is between 4x109/l and 15x109/l, cytotoxic drugs could be initiated to control leukocytosis ...
But Peter, shes arguing that its always true.. Her argument is built on the presumption that the human brain is perfect in its design. Recently I read about a scientist who claimed to have technology enabling him to see and count neuroreceptors. He claimed that using this technology that he was able to determine that chronic use of cannabis resulted in up to 20% reduction of his subjects CB-1 receptors. He portrayed this as a bad thing. His entire assertion seemed built on the premise that more is better. So much so that he didnt seem to even consider that having too many CB-1 receptors might be a problem. White blood cells are essential to keep a person alive but there sure as heck are diseases which cause the white blood cell count to increase to levels which even kills some people. Leukocytosis is not a good thing. This all presuming that the researcher isnt totally full of shit in his claim that he can count CB-1 receptors, but that doesnt seem to be too farfetched. On the other hand ...

Raw food, sometimes called live or living food, is food that has not been cooked, or in other words exposed to temperatures over 40°C (104°F). At those temperatures, the natural enzymes in food are destroyed.. We all benefit from the addition of raw food to our diets. Research has shown that when our diet is composed of 50% raw food and 50% cooked food, we function well and our immune system is in balance. But when our diet is composed of more than 50% cooked foods, our body starts going into digestive leukocytosis. The immune system reacts to the overabundance of cooked food as if it is under attack, sparking an increase in the white blood cell count. As a result, we see increased allergic reactions, chronic inflammation and various types of immune-system dysfunction. The easiest way to avoid this is to consume lots of raw foods such as fruit and vegetables as well as fermented foods such as kefir and sauerkraut that are rich in enzymes and heat-sensitive vitamins.. Health benefits of ...

CML develops with an insidious onset of symptoms and signs, which may include fatigue, anemia, splenomegaly, and leukocytosis marked by an increase in neutrophils, eosinophils, and basophils. The median age of onset is 50 years12 the peak incidence occurs between 50 and 60 years.12 The frequency increases with age. CML occurs equally in males and females.1. There are three phases of the disease: the first, a chronic phase, lasts 30-40 months; the second is a transitional phase called the accelerated phase; and the terminal blast or acute (blast crisis) phase, in which the disease resembles acute leukemia. In some patients, there is no transitional phase, and the disease transforms abruptly into an acute phase.. Was this article helpful?. ...
At data cut-off, patients who achieved a partial response survived a median of 14.4 months, while those who achieved complete response attained 19.7 months. Further data collection on these patients will be included in future studies. Overall survival for this group nearly tripled compared to previous studies evaluating other treatments in this patient population, up from 3.3 months to 9.3 months.. In this early study, the survival benefit of nine months in patients with advanced relapsed or treatment-resistant disease is very significant, noted Dr. Stein. We are further encouraged to see that there we so few serious adverse events for these patients.. Adverse events included increased bilirubin, nausea, IDH-DS (a buildup of fluid in the body and/or lungs), and a proliferation of white blood cells known as leukocytosis. Two participants who experienced IDH-DS died in the course of treatment.. Further trials to assess enasidenib as a frontline therapy, in combination with standard AML ...
White blood cells assistance with wound healing by removing tissue debris and dead cells through the site in the injury.

In this case report, we presented a rare case of maternal death with massive vulvar edema and Covid-19 diagnosis. The case was a 20-year-old woman who was referred to with pain and massive vulvar edema by passing 7 days from her labor. The laboratory tests showed leukocytosis, lymphopenia, and elevated C-reactive protein levels. The high-resolution computed tomography was in favor of Covid-19 changes. Finally, she died because of respiratory distress, ON the 8th day postpartum. Given the increasing prevalence of Covid-19, it is important and vital to be aware of its potential complications and then to try prevent and manage them, especially during high-risk periods such as pregnancy and postpartum.
