Antistreptolysin O (ASO) titer and liver function tests were normal.
Blood count, sedimentation rate, biochemical parameters, protein electrophoresis, levels of immunoglobulin, complement, antistreptolysin O, C-reactive protein, rheumatoid factor, anti-nuclear antibody, anti-deoxyribonucleic acid levels, tumor markers, and thyroid function tests were all within normal limits.
The following blood tests were also performed: liver function tests; blood lipid levels; immunoglobulin (IG) G (IgG), IgM, IgA, antistreptolysin O, rheumatoid factor, complement C3 and complement C4 levels; testing for the presence of antinuclear antibodies (ANAs), anti-double stranded-DNA antibodies, anti-phospholipase A2 receptor antibodies, c-anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies, and p-anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies; the ratio of blood monospecific free light chain; immunoassay electrophoresis; and hepatitis B and C serology.
Optilite assays currently include: Freelite[R] serum free light chain assays, IgG subclasses (lgG1-lgG4), IgG, Low Level IgG (CSF/urine) IgA, IgA Subclasses (lgA1-lgA2), IgM, IgD,' Acid Glycoprotein, Albumin, Low Level Albumin (CSF/urine), Antistreptolysin O, Beta-2Microglobulin, Ceruloplasmin, CH50, Cystatin C, C3c, C4, CI inactivator, Haptoglobin, Hevylite IgA Kappa, Hevylite IgA Lambda, Hevylite IgM Kappa, Hevylite IgM Lambda, Apo A1, Alpha-2-Macroglobulin, Prealbumin, Transferrin
The evidence for GAS includes retrospective studies of increases in antistreptolysin O (ASO), anti-DNAse B (ADB), or anticarbohydrate-specific antibody titers associated with OCD or tic exacerbations; epidemiologic studies linking GAS infections in the prior 3 months with OCD and tic disorders; and animal studies demonstrating neuropsychiatric changes after GAS immunizations.
The main investigations included complete blood count, liver and renal function tests, antistreptolysin O titre, random blood sugar, 24-hour urine protein and gram stain and culture and sensitivity of pus from the lesions.
Serial antistreptolysin O titres showed a rising trend, eventually rising to 540 IU/[micro]L from 220 IU/[micro]L.
CS: YBOCS-Compulsion Sub-score; OS: YBOCS-Obsession Sub-score; TS: YBOCS-Total Score; ASO: Antistreptolysin Serum Titers; CRP: C-reactive protein; 25-(OH) D: 25-hydroxyvitamin D; PTH: parathormone; ALP: alkaline phosphatase Table 4.
Antinuclear antibodies (ANA), antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA), anti-glomerular basement membrane antibody (anti-GBM Ab), serology for hepatitis B and C, and antistreptolysin O titres were all negative.
Urinalysis, urine culture, and Strep Antistreptolysin O Titers laboratory findings were negative.

Liver and renal function tests and urinalysis, peripheral blood smear and levels of antistreptolysin O, markers for hepatitis B and C, anti-HIV antibodies, Brucella and Salmonella, and chest X-ray and abdominal ultrasonography were within normal ranges.
