Transcript

  • 1. INFECTION AND PATHOGENECITY 1
  • 2.
    • 1. Saprophytes.
        • Free living in water, soil.
        • No multiplication.
        • No infectious disease
        • Except B. subtilis.
    • 2.Pathogens:
    • 3. Commensals
        • Opportunistic pathogens
    2 Classification of microbes
  • 3. 2 Definition Invasion (entry,fixation) and multiplication of microbes in body tissues, which may be clinically unapparent or result in local cellular injury due to competitive metabolism, toxins, intracellular replication or antigen antibody response. All infections not results in Infectious disease.
  • 4. Classification of infections 1.Based on Occurrence: a).Primary infection: Infection is first time with a microbe. b).Reinfection: Subsequent infections with same microbe. c).Secondary infection: Infection followed by lowered Host immunity by preexisting disease. 4
  • 5. d). Focal infection: Localized infection with generalized symptoms. Ex: Appendicitis, Tonsillitis e).Cross infection: New infection in a patient from another host or source. f).Nosocomial infection: If cross infections occur in hospitalized individual (Hospital acquired infection). 5
  • 6. g). Iatrogenic infection: Infections by means of Investigative & therapeutic procedures. 6
  • 7.
    • Based on source
    • Endogenous:
        • From Normal flora.
    • Exogenous:
        • Another individual.
        • Environment .
    • Based on clinical effects:
    • Inapparent (Sub clinical):
    • No S/S in spite of
    • infection.
    • Atypical infection:
    • Absence of typical
    • manifestations.
    • Latent infection :
    • Followed by infection-
    • Microbe retain in tissues.
    • Starts proliferation with
    • lowered immunity.
    7
  • 8.
    • 1.HUMAN BEINGS
    • Commonest source.
    • Infective agent
    • transferred either from
    • Patient or from
    • Carrier.
    SOURCES OF INFECTION Types of carrier: Depending on origin: A. Healthy carrier B. Convalescent carrier C. Contact carrier: Acquires pathogen from patient. D. Paradoxical carrier. Acquires pathogen from another Carrier . 8
  • 9.
    • Based on the duration of carriage ……
    • A. Temporary carrier:
    • Microbes harbors not
    • more than 6 months.
    • B. Chronic carrier:
    • Microbes harbors
    • several years or even
    • for life.
    2. INSECTS VECTOR. a). Mechanical vectors. b). Biological vectors. 9 “ Arthropod borne diseases ”
  • 10. 3).ANIMALS: Infectious diseases transmitted from animals to man. ZOONOSES. a).Bacterial: Leptospira, plague from Rat. b).Viral : Rabies from dog. c).Protozoa: Leishmaniasis from dog. d).Helminths : Hydatid disease from dog Tape worms : Cattle , Pig. e).Fungal: Zoophilic dermatophytes - Dog. 10
  • 11.
    • SOIL & WATER
    • Soil : Spores of Tetanus bacilli
    • Histoplasma and Nocardia spp.
    • Water: Cholera, H A V , H E V,
    • Typhoid etc.
    • FOOD
    • Contaminated food.
    • Ex: Staphylococci, Cl. Botulinum.
    11
  • 12. 1.Contact: i) Direct ex: STDs. ii) Indirect : Through contaminated fomites like Toys, Pencils, Clothing. Ex: Diphtheria, Trachoma. METHODS OF TRANSMISSION 12
  • 13.
    • Inhalation
    • Secretions from Respiratory tract infections.
    • (Sneezing, Speaking, Coughing)
    • DROPLET NUCLEI
    • & AEROSOLS
    • Ex: H. influenza,
    • Tubercle bacilli.
    13
  • 14.
    • Ingestion:
    • Through food & water.
    • Ex: Cholera, Dysentery,
    • Food poisoning with
    • B. cereus, Staphylococci.
    • Inoculation:
    • Pathogen injected into tissues.
    • Ex:Tetanus spores.
    • Arboviruses (Insects).
    14
  • 15. 5. Congenital transmission: (Transplacental , Vertical transmission) Placental defects results in Congenital transformation of microbes and results in malformations. ( Teratogenic infections ). Ex : To R C H complex . 15
  • 16.
    • 7. Iatrogenic infections
    • Procedures like….
        • Dialysis,
        • Transfusions,
        • Heart Surgery,
        • Transplant Surgery,
        • Injections.
        • Lumbar puncture.
        • Catheterization .

    • DETERMINANTS OF PATHOGENICITY
        • Pathogenicity:
        • Disease producing capacity of
        • species.
        • Virulence:
        • Disease producing capacity of
        • a strain.
        • Exaltation:
        • Enhancement of pathogenicity.
        • Attenuation:
        • Retaining antigenicity and
        • loss of pathogenicity.
