H.influenza H.influenza Presentation Transcript

  • HAEMOPHILUS INFLUENZAE Dr.T.V.Rao MD Dr.T.V.Rao MD 1
  • • Scientific classification • Kingdom: Bacteria • Phylum: Proteobacteria • Class:Gamma Proteobacteria • Order:Pasteurellales • Family:Pasteurellaceae • Genus:Haemophilus • Species:H. influenzae• Binomial name Haemophilus influenzae Dr.T.V.Rao MD 2
  • History• Pfeiffer 1892 Mistaken as causative of Human Influenza• Isolated by Smith, Andrewes and Laidlaw in 1933• Need one or both of Accessory growth factors X and V present in the Blood Dr.T.V.Rao MD 3
  • Overview- Haemophilus• Small• Non-motile• Gram-negative rods• Transmitted via respiratory droplets, or direct contact with contaminated secretions• Normal flora of the human respiratory tract and oral cavity. Dr.T.V.Rao MD 4
  • Haemophilus species of clinical importance1. H. influenzae -type b is an important human pathogen2. H. ducreyi -sexually transmitted pathogen (chancroid)3. Other Haemophilus are normal flora - H. parainfluenzae – pneumonia & endocarditis - H. aphrophilus – pneumonia & endocarditis - H. aegyptius – pink eye (purulent conjunctivitis) Dr.T.V.Rao MD 5
  • Haemophilus Influenza• Aerobic gram-negative bacteria• Polysaccharide capsule• Six different serotypes (a-f) of polysaccharide capsule• 95% of invasive disease caused by type b (Hib) Dr.T.V.Rao MD 6
  • Genus Haemophilus• Small, Non motile, Non sporing• Oxidase test positive• Pleomorphic• Gram Negative Dr.T.V.Rao MD 7
  • Haemophilus Influenza (Pfeiffer Bacillus )• The size is 3 x 0.3 microns• Gram negative• Non Motile• Non sporing• Pleomorphic• Appear as clusters or Coccobacillary forms in infected CSF• When isolated capsulated• Stained with Lofflers Dr.T.V.Rao MD 8 methylene blue
  • Microscopic Appearance by Gram staining Dr.T.V.Rao MD 9
  • Haemophilus influenza Dr.T.V.Rao MD 10
  • Haemophilus Species H. influenzae satellitism around and between the large, white, hemo lytic staphylococciHaemophilus species require hemoglobin for growth: X-factor ( hemin): Heat-stable substance V-factor (NAD): Heat- labile, coenzyme I, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, found in blood or secreted by certain organisms
  • Haemophilus InfluenzaeMode of Transmission: Droplet infection and discharge from the upper respiratory tract during the infectious period.Incubation Period Unknown, probably short, 2-4 days.Infectious Period - As long as the organism is present, even in the absence of nasal discharge. - Noninfectious within 24 to 48 hours after the start of effective antibiotics. MD Dr.T.V.Rao 12
  • Cultural Characteristics• Fastidious growth requirements• Factors X and V are essential for growth• X is Hemin heat stable• Porphyrins for synthesis of Cytochromes• V factor Coenzyme Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide or NAD phosphate acts as hydrogen acceptor• Aerobic 370c• Grows in Blood agar Dr.T.V.Rao MD 13
  • H. influenzae on a blood agar plate.H. influenza, in a Gram stainof a sputum sample, appear as Gram-negative coccobacilli. Haemophilus influenza requires X and V factors for growth. In this culture Haemophilus has only grown around the paper disc that has been impregnated with X and V factors. There is no bacterial growth around the discs that only contain either X or V factor. Dr.T.V.Rao MD 14
  • Satellitisim• When Staph aureus is streaked across plate of Blood agar with a species containing H Influenza the colonies which are large develop along the streak of Staphylococcus and small further away Dr.T.V.Rao MD 15
  • Biochemical Characters• Glucose +• Xylose +• Lactose –• Sucrose –• Mannitol –• Nitrites reduced• Indole differs on• B type causes Meningitis Dr.T.V.Rao MD 16
  • Resistance• Heating at55 0cfor 30mt destroys• Drying and Disinfectants destroy Dr.T.V.Rao MD 17
  • Antigenic Properties• Contains 3 Major surface antigens 1 Capsular polysaccharide 2 Outer membrane proteins (OMP) 3 Lipopolysaccharides ( LPS ) Dr.T.V.Rao MD 18
  • Pittman Classification• The major antigenic determinant of capsulated strains into six capsular types type a to fTyping by agglutination Quelling reactions precipitation and co agglutination or ELISA 95% of H, Influenza isolates belong to type b Dr.T.V.Rao MD 19
  • Type b characteristics• Has unique characters contains Pentose sugars Ribose Ribitol, instead of Hexose in others and hexosamines The capsular polyribosyl ribitol phosphate ( PRP ) of Hib induces IgG IgM and IgA antibodies –Bactericidal and opsonic and protective. So Hib PRP employed for Immunization Dr.T.V.Rao MD 20
  • Haemophilus influenzae type b Clinical Features* Epiglottitis 17% Meningitis 50% Pneumonia 15% Osteomyelitis 2% Arthritis 8% Cellulitis Bacteremia 6% 2%*prevaccination era Dr.T.V.Rao MD 21
  • Non typable Strains• H Influenza lacking capsule are non typable are most relevant in clinical infections• Outer membrane proteins OMP of Hib are classified into 13 subtypes• H Influenza lipo polysaccharides are more complex• Genome of the organism is sequenced Dr.T.V.Rao MD 22
  • Pathogenicity• A Human pathogen• Can produce invasive and Non invasive lesions• Prominent organism in producing Meningitis• Can produce laryngoepiglottitis,Conjuctivitis,Bactereima Pneumonia, Arthritis Endocarditis, Pericarditis Dr.T.V.Rao MD 23
  • Most strains are opportunistic Pathogens• Most strains of H. influenza are opportunistic pathogens; that is, they usually live in their host without causing disease, but cause problems only when other factors (such as a viral infection or reduced immune function) create an opportunity. Dr.T.V.Rao MD 24
  • Most Important Clinical Illness associated with H influenzae Dr.T.V.Rao MD 25
  • Clinical PresentationPneumonia: Severe shortness of breath, rapid heart rate, fever, cough and evidence of pneumonia by chest radiograph.Septic Arthritis: Swelling, warmth, pain with movement and decreased mobility of a single large weight-bearing joint. Dr.T.V.Rao MD 26
  • Haemophilus influenzae type b Clinical Manifestations* E p ig lo ttitis 17% M en in g itis 50% P n eu m o n ia 15% O steo m yelitis 2% A rth ritis 8% C ellu litis B acterem ia 6% 2% Dr.T.V.Rao MD 27*prevaccination era
  • Haemophilus InfluenzaMode of Transmission: Droplet infection and discharge from the upper respiratory tract during the infectious period.Incubation Period Unknown, probably short, 2-4 days.Infectious Period - As long as the organism is present, even in the absence of nasal discharge. - Noninfectious within 24 to 48 hours after the start of effective antibiotics. MD Dr.T.V.Rao 28
  • Haemophilus influenza type b Meningitis• Accounted for approximately 50%-65% of cases in the prevaccine era• Hearing impairment or neurologic sequelae in 15%-30%• Case-fatality rate 2%-5% despite of effective antimicrobial therapy Dr.T.V.Rao MD 29
  • Secondary Infections• Respiratory tract infections,• Otitis media• Sinusitis• Chronic Bronchitis Dr.T.V.Rao MD 30
  • Haemophilus Meningitis• Carries a High Mortality of 90% if not treated• The Bacteria reach Meninges from nasopharynx Dr.T.V.Rao MD 31
  • Laryngo epiglottitis• Causes Epiglottis• Obstructive Laryngitis• > 2 years children are vulnerable• Can be fatal in 2 hours Dr.T.V.Rao MD 32

  • Haemophilus influenza type b Medical Management• Hospitalization required• Treatment with an effective 3rd generation cephalosporin, or chloramphenicol plus ampicillin• Ampicillin-resistant strains now common throughout the United States Dr.T.V.Rao MD 39
  • Epidemiology and Prevention• Similar to Pneumococci• Infection enters through Respiratory tract• Immunity is type specific• HIB is protected by PRP vaccine• Poorly immunogenic in children below 2 years• Rifampicin can be given for 4 days and prevents secondary infection and eradicates carrier state. Dr.T.V.Rao MD 40
  • Public Health Action Dr.T.V.Rao MD 41
