The Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR)
, or the sed rate, is a simple, nonspecific marker of underlying inflammation. It is often used to screen patients with fevers of undetermined origin, arthritides, muscle pains, and other vague symptoms. ESR testing is specifically indicated for certain conditions:
- To monitor rheumatoid arthritis, tuberculosis, and systemic lupus erythematosis.
- To diagnose and monitor giant cell arteritis and polymyalgia rheumatica.
An elevated ESR may also be associated with many other conditions, including other autoimmune disease, anemia, infection, and malignancy.
