Staphylococcus aureus
organisms commonly found in the normal flora of the respiratory tract
type of symbiosis that benefit both members
acute infection generally caused by group A Streptococcus
caused by an organism of the genus Mycobacterium
lower respiratory system
trachea, bronchi, lungs
Subcutaneous mycoses
occur predominantly in the tropics
presence of microbes in or on the body
mixed infection
infection in which several infectious agents establish themselves at the same time
Human papillomavirus
causes warts
Streptococcus pyogenes
Gram + bacteria
Toxic shock syndrome
and other skin infections are caused by Staphylococcus aureus
Strep throat
caused by Streptococcus pyogenes
nosocomial infections
aka health care associated infections
Langerhans cells
located in the epidermis, play a role in defense against microbes
caused by Mycobacterium leprae
Rheumatic fever
rare complication of Strep throat
virulence factors
colonization, invasion, toxins, adhesion
aka fungal infections
microorganism capable of causing disease
relationship in which one organism benefits and the other is harmed
bacterial endotoxins
are components of the gram - cell wall
important fungi that causes diseases of the skin, hair, and nails
normal flora
mouth, urethra, and vagina
degree or extent of disease-evoking power that a microorganism has
acute, highly contagious disease caused by the Variols virus of the Orthopoxvirus family
vehicle transmission
airborne, bodily fluid, foodborne
Haemophilus Influenza
is a gram-negative coccobacillus and a common cause of bronchiolitis in children, bronchitis in adults, and occasionally meningitis

often associated with strawberry tongue and caused by Streptococcus pyogenes
Pulmonary aspergillosis
formation of fungus ball within preexisting cavities
portal of entry for pathogens
most frequently used is the respiratory tract
symbiotic relationship in which one of the organisms benefits and the other is not harmed or helped
focal infection
pathogen spreads from the original site to other tissues or organs
Propionibacterium acnes
causes acne
