In one study, three measurements at monthly intervals were recommended to define an individual's steady-state concentration, provided there is no intercurrent infection (57).
Because the patient was neurologically asymptomatic before the injury, it seems unlikely that the KBS was due to intercurrent neoplasm, infectious-inflammatory disorder, or multiple sclerosis unmasked by the trauma.
If intercurrent antimicrobial therapy is not given, the level of bacteriuria or candiduria almost uniformly increases to [is greater than] [10.
Children with systemic disease or intercurrent infections were specifically excluded.
Assessment of behavioral problems should include a review of potential triggers, such as pain, intercurrent illness, and medications.
Most adverse events were mild to moderate in severity and it was generally not possible to distinguish adverse reactions due to treatment from the consequences of the patient's metastatic breast cancer, the effects of estrogen deprivation, or to other intercurrent illnesses in the study populations (almost one-third of whom were over age 70).
Frequently, three different DRGs are associated with the same condition: age over 17 years with complications and/or comorbidities, age over 17 years without complications and/or comorbidities, and the condition in children age 17 years or less regardless of any intercurrent complication.

Although hs-CRP is an acute phase reactant, and as such is subject to marked and rapid shifts secondary to intercurrent illness, we have demonstrated that there is considerable stability in the measurement of hs-CRP and that correction for outlying high values yielded only minor changes in these findings.
However, the top 10% or so of CRP values reflect ongoing acute phase responses at the time of sampling, presumably resulting from chronic or low-grade intercurrent infection, inflammation, or other tissue-damaging processes.
In other patients, intermittent episodes may arise in infancy and childhood during catabolic states, which are often triggered, in an apparently unpredictable manner, by intercurrent illnesses (1-4).
