Neutrophilia, no pus, defective fucose metabolism (affects selectins), decreased rolling
Th2 (IL-4,5 & 13) and Eosinophil driven. Hyperresponsiveness
Hemaglutinnin, Neuraminidase, ...
More common where earth is being moved. In lungs.
Susceptible to few drugs, often causes septicaemia. Susceptible to Ceftazidime, Cefoperazone, Cefepime, Cefpirome, Imipenem, Polymixins, Ciprofloxacin
LDLR doesn't recognise ApoA or ApoE
RF present but not Rheumatoid Arthritis. Often features in 'House'
ABCA1 doesn't work so ApoA1 can't pick up cholesterol
Can be caused by Clindamycin. Killing all susceptible bacteria in gut using a broad spectrum antibiotic can cause...
Death after Chloramphenicol
Short stage in blood then muscle (esp. heart).
Recurrent bacterial infections, no pus, Leukocytes don't adhere to endothelium
Often susceptible to vancomycin and linezolid but resistant to Methicillin
Susceptible to Linezolid but not vancomycin
Penicillin can cause this in about 5% of people
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.
Risk Factor - Bacteria
Co-morbidity with ATS
S. mansoni, S. haematobium, S. japonicus. Use water snail as intermediate host (can also have secondary host)
They multiply in Liver then RBCs. Can cause severe anaemia, haemolysis, pulmonary oedema, metabolic acidosis and hypoglycaemia. Most serious in P. falciparum
Caused by Yeast
Live in subcutaneous tissue and lymphatic tissue. Adults discharge tiny babies which can be ingested by insects. Can cause Elephantiasis and River Blindness.
Caused by trichophyton (mould) often
T cells increase but there are less T cells
Often cause gut infection after oral broad spectrum antibiotic
Can be oral or vaginal. Often treated with oral miconazole.
