What is the cause of sudden fever intermittent in patient with renal failure?

Need a lot more info: You've given too little detail, so you'll need to provide us with more. When you say renal failure, do you mean end-stage renal disease, acute renal failure, chronic renal failure, or something else? What other things are happening with the patient besides the occasional fever? What region of the world is the patient in? Any other concomitant illnesses? How high is the fever?

Asthma with high-grade fever. Already had a flu shot hence flu is ruled out. What is the possible cause? Patient went on a field trip the day before symptoms arose.

Asthma with high-grade fever. Already had a flu shot hence flu is ruled out. What is the possible cause? Patient went on a field trip the day before symptoms arose.

See below: Another viral or bacterial infection. Did the patient have an insect, or tick bite? That may cause allergic reaction, which sometimes can induce high fever, or infection, including more obscure things such as lyme disease etc. See a specialist. Also, flu shot does not give 100% protection, but this does not sound like it.

Need subspecialist?: A fever of unknown origin (FUO) has a specific definition, most typically a prolonged fever over 101, with no obvious source after appropriate investigations. This may require an infectious disease specialist. A careful medical history and physical, esp of travel and work. Immune status is important. General categories of FUO include infections, autoimmune conditions, and malignancies.

How common do u see young patient with stroke. Is it becoming more cpmmon in young. Also what would be most common cause?

Common: I recently had a 22 yo female that developed a stroke a month after she started oral contraceptives. Young patient can develop stroke depending upon their risk factors, such as genetic predisposition, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, a combination of smoking and oral contraceptives, etc.

Can marijuana cause tiny strokes similar to the ones seen in patients with vasculitis?

See Below: Cannabis consumption has been shown to be an aggravating factor in the development of arteritis in some young adults. In addition, cannabis has been shown to be related in several instances of cerebral ischemia and infarction. Often these events are also associated with alcohol use which is thought to play a role.

Is it true that having a chin implant could cause facial nerve damage? I want to have chin implant surgery to correct a weak jaw line. I've heard that this procedure sometimes causes nerve damage and patients look like they have suffered a stroke. What ar

A: A chin implant placed by a well trained facial plastic surgeon should be a relatively simple procedure. While there are risks associated with this procedure--they are extremely rare. What you are describing is an injury to the facial nerve and specifically the marginal mandibular branch (causes the corner of the mouth to be pulled down such as in a frown or even slightly in a smile) which could cause some asymmetry in your smile but not so severe as to be confused with a stroke. Having said this, I have never seen or even heard of this nerve being damaged during a chin implant. There is a sensory nerve (feeling only) in the area that is more at risk. It is the mandibular branch of the trigeminal nerve and again it is only for sensation. An injury to this nerve would cause a spot of numbness to the chin and lower lip on the side that was injured. I have heard of some temporary numbness after chin implant surgery (few to several weeks) but never a permanent one. This is most likely due to the swelling and inflammation after surgery. I hope this helps!

Can flu medicine, including antibiotics, for which a patient may be allergic, cause afib symptons, confirmed by 3 ecg's?

Can flu medicine, including antibiotics, for which a patient may be allergic, cause afib symptons, confirmed by 3 ecg's?

No.: There are many medicines at the pharmacy. All have one thing in common. They are not doing anything if they are not inside of you. It is UNLIKELY that the person was on the medicine for the length of time to get the EKG's and previous medicines wear off certainly a day later and would not be causing it.

Glomerulonephritis patient with 39.5degree fever, what to do?

Glomerulonephritis patient with 39.5degree fever, what to do?

HARD TO ANSWER: Because there are different kinds of glomerulonephritis and many many different causes for fever, it is very difficult to give you an advice besides seeing your doc. He/she will need to do a thorough exam and lab as needed to make a decision. It is not advisable to manage this with observation. For instance, a simple strep throat left untreated may even cause another glomerulonephritis.

Can someone explain to me how doctors see so many patients and they don't get sick even if they see patients with fever, etc. Do they take injections?

Can someone explain to me how doctors see so many patients and they don't get sick even if they see patients with fever, etc. Do they take injections?

Good question: I think that it is because the profession occupies the mind apart from simply "making money". Happiness at work is of inestimable importance and few in this robot culture are able to achieve it. If the mind is healthy, so will the body be because we are nothing without the brain. Also, perhaps doctors know all too well how important is diet, the fuel that enables all our functions.

Why do lupus patients run fevers at night?

Why do lupus patients run fevers at night?

Fever: Sle is an inflammatory condition in which fevers are not uncommon. Would not, however, make the assumption that the fever in any given individual is due to their sle, since they are more susceptible to infection than the normal person, and the drugs they are taking may make them even more liable to infection. They should be seen by a doctor and evaluated thoroughly.
