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