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