A Case Report on Raynaud’s Phenomenon with High Eosinophil Count and Hypocomplementemia

August 3, 2022 Medical Science 0

The current case study discusses Raynaud’s phenomenon in association with a high eosinophil count and hypocomplementemia. In the study, a 28-year-old female patient had Raynaud’s phenomenon and a non-healing finger ulcer. Upon analysis, it was discovered that the patient also had hypocomplementemia and a high eosinophil count. The patient was diagnosed with diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis and started treatment, the concomitant helminth infection that was causing her other lab abnormalities. Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis and post-infectious glomerulonephritis are two renal causes. SLE, cryoglobulinemia, rheumatoid vasculitis, polyarteritis nodosa, and urticarial vasculitis are a few examples of rheumatological causes. The hypocom- plementemia in this patient is most likely caused by her helminthic illness. This instance raises the prospect that two distinct diagnoses could present simultaneously and result in a therapeutic dilemma.
