Infection

The obstetrician will react accordingly. This could signal an intrauterine infection. The pediatrician will also evaluate once baby is born.

Does a sinus infection in an infant cause a high fever and elevated wbc?

Define infant

Sinus
The sinus cavities don't start to form clinically until 4-6m and are difficult to assess reliably before a year of age, if then. Sinus xrays at a year are often filled with fluid with a cold & that study does not reliably confirm a dx. After a year of age the dx is a bit more realistic. Tonsillitis & nasopharyngitis are common early sinusitis like illnesses & can boost a fever &WBC.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Can celiac disease cause elevated wbc levels (above 20,000) and fever ? is a person wid high IgE level is more prone to celiac as well?

No and No

Fever
The elevated WBC calls for a serious workup by your physician -- we don't want to miss endocarditis, leukemia or any of several other troublesome, possibly treatable diseases. The IgE system is barely related to the pathogensis of celiac sprue and the assay is worthless to screen for it. I'm glad you're being proactive & hope you'll get straight talk from your physician now.

Experiencing chronic fever for 23 days, night sweats and pain under right ribs. High lymphs, low neutrophils, high Alt/AST and elevated CRP. Causes?

Please see MD

Fever
Any weight loss? Any nodes or lumps? How high is the fever? The trial of fever, night sweats and pain is worrisome and raise many questions. Infection might be a cause but malignancy should be ruled out. Do not hesitate..

Heart rate

Influenza
Fever and elevated heart rate could be any infectious or inflammatory state, those findings are not specific. Flu is just one of the causes.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

What illness causes fever, malaise, inflamed tonsils, elevated sgot, and sgpt?

Rule out mono

Sgot
This sounds like infectious mononucleosis -- Epstein-Barr, CMV, toxoplasmosis or -- if you are at risk -- acute HIV, a medical emergency. Your physician knows how to rule in or out drug allergy, the other important situation; or you may have a strep throat and some reason to have elevated SGOT/SGPT, especially if you drink or are not a fitness buff.

Dr. Alan Feldman answered:

Cause of elevated wbc in blood in diabetic? Protein in urine, no fever and no other symptoms.

Many possibilities

Urine
An elevated WBC is typically seen when you have an infection. It is not directly related to having diabetes, but diabetics are more prone to getting infections, such as urinary infections. High protein in the urine can be from a urine infection, but can also be a sign of diabetes affecting the kidneys and causing leakage of protein. This would need treatment. You should see your doctor about
