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