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