AreaDiseaseClue
InflammationHomocysteine implicated
ArthopodsMite burrows into epidermis. Papular eruption.
Systemic InflammationRF present but not Rheumatoid Arthritis. Often features in 'House'
Risk Factor - BacteriaCo-morbidity with ATS
Risk FactorIncreases risk of ATS
Immune DeficiencyRecurrent bacterial infections, no pus, Leukocytes don't adhere to endothelium
Side EffectPenicillin can cause this in about 5% of people
FungusCan be oral or vaginal. Often treated with oral miconazole.
VirusHemaglutinnin, Neuraminidase, ...
InfectionIsoniazid/Ethambutol/Pyrazinamide/Rifampicin prescribed
Mendelian disorderABCA1 doesn't work so ApoA1 can't pick up cholesterol
InflammationTh2 (IL-4,5 & 13) and Eosinophil driven. Hyperresponsiveness
Immune DeficiencyNeutrophilia, no pus, defective fucose metabolism (affects selectins), decreased rolling
FungusCaused by trichophyton (mould) often
Mendelian DisorderLDLR doesn't recognise ApoA or ApoE
Parasite (Protozoa)Multiplies in blood and CSF disturbing circadian rythms. avoids immune system by using cyclical antigen coats.
Parasite (Helminth)If humans are primary host, no morbidity. Worm just stays in gut. Intermediate host causes morbidity as organism in tissues
FungusMore common where earth is being moved. In lungs.
Parasite (Protozoa)They multiply in Liver then RBCs. Can cause severe anaemia, haemolysis, pulmonary oedema, metabolic acidosis and hypoglycaemia. Most serious in P. falciparum
InflammationChronic Inflammation, Synovium (Hyaluronan, PGE2), MMPs (TIMP & Serpin inactivation), TNFa, IL-1b, Pannus formation
Parasite (Protozoa)Short stage in blood then muscle (esp. heart).
AreaDiseaseClue
VirusT cells increase but there are less T cells
ArthopodsScalp itching
FungusCaused by Yeast
Side EffectTetracyclin forms ROS causing damage
VirusMost common cold causer
VirusCauses SARS
BacteriaSusceptible to few drugs, often causes septicaemia. Susceptible to Ceftazidime, Cefoperazone, Cefepime, Cefpirome, Imipenem, Polymixins, Ciprofloxacin
BacteriaOften susceptible to vancomycin and linezolid but resistant to Methicillin
Parasite (Helminth)Live in subcutaneous tissue and lymphatic tissue. Adults discharge tiny babies which can be ingested by insects. Can cause Elephantiasis and River Blindness.
ArthopodsItching in Pubic Area
Skin DiseaseTetracycline often applied topically to cure
Virus/InflammationRibavirin used, can be caused by alcohol
Side EffectDeath after Chloramphenicol
Parasite (Helminth)S. mansoni, S. haematobium, S. japonicus. Use water snail as intermediate host (can also have secondary host)
Infection/InflammationCefotaxime/Ceftriaxone often prescribed. Caused by N. meningitidis, H. influenzae, S. pneumoniae, L. monocytogenes, possible C. albicans...
Side EffectCan be caused by Clindamycin. Killing all susceptible bacteria in gut using a broad spectrum antibiotic can cause...
Side EffectAminoglycoside SE
Parasite (Helminth)Egg dropped in faeces and mature in soil. they are ingested and hatch in intestine. they penetrate the gut wall and migrate to liver then heart then lung. they grow and are then coughed up and swallowed.10-30cm adult can escape from any orifice though larval migration causes most morbidity.
InflammationNeutrophil driven, often causes cyanosis, hypoxia and right heart failure. Mucous is a problem!
BacteriaOften cause gut infection after oral broad spectrum antibiotic
BacteriaSusceptible to Linezolid but not vancomycin
