During testing, we routinely measured vital functions every 3 hours (heart rate, respiration, temperature, blood pressure, intake and excretion of fluids, oxygen saturation) and controlled laboratory values (complete blood count, C-reactive protein, electrolytes, hepatogram
, arterial blood gas measurement).
After admission to the hospital, we carried out the following analyses: sedimentation, full blood count, urea, creatinine, hepatogram
, transaminases, anti-DNA, antinuclear antibody (ANA), LE cell, Scl-70, CRP, and serological test for Borrelia.
All laboratory test results (blood tests, albumins, proteins, hepatogram
, electrolytes) were within normal values, including the C-reactive protein (CRP) which was less than 1 mg/L after the gluteus scar and pseudotumor excision.
