DescriptionBacteria (genus species)Clinical Manifestations
Gram + cocci strips, cat. -, lancefield A, B-hemolytic, bacitracin sens., + PYR test, rapid on blood media (aero/anaero); capsule, many virulence factors; UR tract and skin; resp. Skin/subcutaneous: impetigo, erysipelas, cellulitis, necrotizing fasciitis; respiratory: pharyngitis, pneumonia; puerperal fever, bacteremia, Scarlet Fever, Toxic Shock Syndrome; glomerulonephritis, rheumatic fever
Weakly gram - rod shaped intracellular; MIF followed by Western blot or PCR; transmitted by ticksRocky mountain spotted fever
Gram + rods in anaero culture, terminal sporing, motile; * toxin: inhibition of vesicular exocytosis and GABA or Gly release in skeletal muscle; not in body, spores (soil); vaccine[Due to toxin] early symptoms: lockjaw, drooling, sweating, irritability, back spasms; later symptoms: cardiac arrhythmias, profound sweating, dehydration
Weakly gram - rod shaped intracellular; MIF followed by Western blot or PCR; transmitted by body louse with human reservoir courtesy of Brill-Zinsser diseaseEpidemic typhus, Brill-Zinsser disease
Gram - rods, motile, ferments lactose, green metallic sheen on EMB, pink-purple on MacConkey, O/H antigens; O antigen, K1 antigen, H antigen, adhesins; LT, ST, SLT toxins; GI/foodGastroenteritis (ranging from Traveler's diarrhea to 'invasive, massive diarrhea'; UTI, bacteremia, neonatal meningitis
Weakly gram - rod shaped intracellular; cell culture or use direct antigen detecting, ELISA, or PCR of urine; LPS; transmitted by intimate contact or transmitted during birthUrogenital: (men) urethritis, epididymitis, prostatitis, proctitis, (women) cervitis, salpingitis, (neonates) neonatal conjunctivitis, pneumonia; trachoma; lymphogranuloma venereum; Reiter's syndrome
Acid fast thin rods, non-motile, sporing; stain with Ziehl-Neelsen, PCR; Cord factor, sulfatides, Wax D; spread through respiratory droplets with humans as only reservoirPrimary: caseating granulomas in lung; secondary: dissemination to lymph nodes, CNS, blood [commonly seen in AIDS patients]
Gram + rods, anaero culture/stain aspirates, subterminal sporing, motile; various exotoxins; contact of soil with puncture/deep wounds; found in human GI tract and soilSkin/subcutaneous: cellulitis, gas gangrene; GI: food poisoning
Gram + cocci clusters, cat. +, coag. +, rapid growth on non-selective media (aero/anaero); capsule, protein A; multiple enzymes; TSST-1, Enterotoxin A/B, exoliatin; flora of skinSkin/subcutaneous: impetigo, cellulitis, folliculitis, furuncles, carbuncles; respiratory: pneumonia; bone-joint: septic arthritis, osteomyelitis; acute endocarditis, bacteremia
