These three diseases can be transmitted by hard shell ticks
Lesser virulence factor of lyme disease, causes autoimmune response and antigenic variation
Diagnose: in a gram stain, you find bipolar stained rods
tularemia's anti phagocytic component
this family of tick is the vector for rickettsii
Pathogen: gram -, coccobacilli, obligate intracellular, thin murein layer
Pathogen: plague
RMSF prefers to infect this type of cell
Plague endotoxins can cause this kind of shock
Def: piece of dead tissue that is about to slough off the surface of the skin
During Direct immunofluorescence, F1 antigen is a sign of this virulence factor in plague
treatment: 2 drugs for lyme disease
You would use microscopy during a febrile period to diagnose this borrelial infection
relapsing fever is due to this borrelia
higher incidence of Lyme disease occurs at the end of this season
Pathogen: gram -, rods, bipolar staining
A flea bite can cause transmission of this disease
a deer fly can transmit this disease
the diagnostic rash of lyme disease, bull's eye appearance, usually nontender and indicative of first stage infection
late lyme disease is shown with fluctuating _________, including joint pain
Virulence factor: antiphagocytic part of plague
Pathogen: tularemia
treatment: ricketts
This disease is caused by a facultative intracellular parasite, can affect the eyes, lungs, blood, and gi, caused by gram - rods
Pathogen: lyme disease
Diagnosis: Areas of multiplication are characterized by necrosis or granuloma production
This pathogen is a spirochete
Lyme disease: this is the first step of sensitive testing
most common form of tularemia 75% cases, low mortality
infection caused by the transmission of microorganisms that naturally live in animals
This is the leading vector borne disease in the US
Pathogen: gram -, coccobacilli,
Diagnose: a facultative intracellular pathogen infects reticuloendothelial organs, multiplies in macrophages,
Diagnose: sudden onset, nonspecific flu like, later rash, petechial, hemorrhageic, first on extremities, spread centripetally to the entire body
In plague, this virulence factor prevents opsonization and phagocytic migration
this type of plague is highly contagious
Injected YOPs suppress production of ______, interfering with immune system messaging
wild rodents are responsible for this cycle of the plague

treatment: 2 drugs for plague
major virulence mechanism of relapsing fever
cultures of this bacteria are highly infectious
Diagnose: fever, rash, previous tick bite are important to diagnosing
septicemic plague is notably absent of
treatment: 2 drugs for tularemia
For RMSF, this is the most rapid and specific diagnostic assay
dark discoloration, black death describes this type of plague
For RMSF, this process detects bacteria in the skin biopsy of the rash
Diagnose: this disease causes increased vasculitis, thrombosis, and vascular permeability
Def: hemorrhagic suppurative lymphadenitis
Diagnose: man touched dead rabbits, fever, muscle aches, dry cough, small gram negative rods
this test is recommended for later stages of Lyme disease
Diagnose: preferentially infect endothelial cells lining the small blood vessels
