DescriptionBacteria (genus species)Clinical Manifestations
Gram - diplococci, non-motile, non-sporing, ox. +, cat. +, meta. gluc./malt.; Thayer-Martin/chocolate blood agar; Capsule, Pili, Por B; iron acq., IgA protease; LPS; resp. dropletsMeningitis, *cemia, can lead to bilateral destruction of adrenal glands
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
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 + cocci strips, catalase -, lancefield group B, B-hemolytic, bacitracin resistant, CAMP test, PCR; female lower GI/GU tracts, can be vertically transmitted during birthNeonatal: meningitis, sepsis, pneumonia; Adults: septic arthritis, sepsis, cellulitis
Gram - diplococci, non-motile, non-sporing, oxidase +, cat. +, meta. glucose; Thayer-Martin medium and chocolate blood agar; Pili, Opa, Por B; IgA protease; LOS; contact or birthinLocal: (men) urethritis, (women) cervicitis, (newborns) purulent conjunctivitis; systemic: septic arthritis; other: peri-hepatitis
Poorly gram staining, use silver; corkscrew with hooks, very small, culture blood or CSF on broth or agar medium, darkfield, smear with Giemsa, MAT; food/water with inf. urinePhase 1: mild 'influenza like'; phase 2: chills, fever, headache, nausea, muscle pain, followed by presentation in liver, kidneys, and CNS causing jaundice and hemorrhages; afebrile period; recurrence: fever, presentation in urine, septic meningitis, nephritis, hepatitis, skin lesions; complications: aseptic meningitis, Weill's disease
Gram - rods in aero culture, motile, phototrophic, lactose ferm. -, oxidase +/nitrate -, blue-green pigment; exotoxin A, exoenzyme S, elastase, phospholipase C, endotoxin; ubiquiNosocomial: pulmonary (bronchitis), UTI, bacteremia, endocarditis, burn complications; Community: pneumonia (CF pt's), otitis media, wounds (DM foot), folliculitis
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 + 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
Gram + rods, non-spore, tumbling motility; blood culture using cold temps; hemolysin, *lysin O; endotoxin (lipid A); grows intracellular in gut; contaminated dairy and during birthNeonatal meningitis, septicemia in pregnant, meningitis in immunocompromised
Gram + rods in v-shaped pairs, non-spore, non-motile; Loeffler media, black colonies on K+ tellurite; pseudomembrane; * toxin; spread by respiratory droplets; in resp. tract; vacci[Due to toxin] early symptoms: pseudomembrane formation in pharynx, malaise, sore throat, anorexia, fever; later symptoms: severe prostration, rapid pulse, striking pallor, coma and death (usually last symptom); complications: myocarditis, polyneuritis, parenchymatous degeneration, fat infiltration, liver necrosis
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
