Terms in this set (38)
Pathogenicity: Main cause of skin infections; facultative anaerobe
Skin Abcess (Staphylcoccus Aureas)
Furuncle (boil) and carbuncles which cause necrolysis of the epidermis; can also cause celulitis
Nosocomial Infections (Staphylcoccus Aureas)
Bronchopneumonia; MRSA; osteomyelitis
Pus formation, resist phagocytosis from the host and are all true pathogens
Portals of entry and exit for Staphylcoccus Aureus
Skin, digestive and respiratory
Modes of transmission of Staphylcoccus Aureus
Air droplets and fomites
Embalming concerns of Staphylcoccus Aureus
Skin Abcess, (leakage and skin slip) Nosocomial and TSS
Pathogenicity: site of invasion is usually the pharynx; 5-15% of the population has it in their respiratory system; facultative anaerobe.
Portals of entry for Streptococcus Pyogenes
Respiratory tract, Genito-urinary or open lesions
A rare bacterial infection that can destroy the skin and soft tissues beneath it.
Streptococcus Pneumoniae (Pneumococcus) Diplococcal Encapsulated
Pathogenicity: Resides in upper respiratory tract of humans especially in winter and early spring. Facultative Anaerobe.
Favors influencing the virulence of Streptococcus Pneumoniae
Capsulation. Spore former; without the encapsulation, the microbe would not be able to cause a disease condition.
Portals of entry for Streptococcus Pneumoniae
Causes 95% of lobar pneumonia; additional fluid in the alveolar sacs of the lobes.
Neisseria Gonorrheae (Gonococcus)
Pathogenicity: coccus in shape that appears in pairs as coffee beans or kidney beans; OBLIGATE AEROBIC; part of normal flora of body.
Virus infections in the newborn received by infected mother.
Usually starts with sore throat, cold or influenza type, exotoxins creates the skin rash
Septic sore throat
Purulent (pus) exudates (cells that seep out fluid
Mitral valve disease
Neisseria Meningitis (meningococcus) DIPLOCOCCAL ENCAPSULATED
Pathogenicity: obligate parasite; part of the normal flora in 5-15% of adults
Clostridium Tetani (tetanus or lockjaw)
Pathogenicity: obligate anaerobe
Clostridium Perfingens (clostridium welchi)
Obligate anaerobe; can cause food poisoning; causes 75% of gas gangrene, toxins in blood lead to toxemia (antemortem).
Proslitic production of small molecule in natural products
Pathogenicity: true pathogen. Attacks mucous membranes, especially the throat, pharynx and larynx; diphtheria produces pseudomembrane in the upper respiratory tract; facultative anaerobe
Botulism (food poisoning) obligate anaerobe
Anthrax; obligate aerobic
Obligate aerobe; true pathogen.
Bacteria that involves pus formation, resists phagocytosis from the host, and are all true pathogens
They pyogenic cocci that cannot cause a disease condition without encapsulation.
Clostridium Tetani is the spore forming bacillus that causes
Crepitation in soft tissue of the body is an embalming concern caused by ________ ________; this is a postmortem condition.
Neisseria gonnorhae is the causative microbe of what sexually transmitted infection
Obligate aerobic bacillus that is common in people who handle infected animals and is used in bioterrorism
Mycobacterium Tuberculosis is an obligate aerobe that is a ________ communicable disease. It is also known as ____ because the tubercles consume the lung tissue.
Obligate anaerobe, of the clostridium genus that is one of the sources of food poisoning.
