Transcript of "Module7 bacilli-120620071554-phpapp01"

  1. 1. Bacilli Gram (+) non-spore forming Gram (+) spore forming Gram (-) bacilliMicrobiology HTL

  3. 3. Taxonomical Classification: (2) x Gram (-) bacilli - Enterics x Citrobacter x Escherichia x Edwardsiella x Salmonella x Serratia x Shigella x Proteus x Klebsiella x Morganella x Arizona x Providencia x VibrioMicrobiology HTL
  4. 4. Small gram (-) bacilli x Bordatella x Hemophilus x Brucella x PasteurellaMicrobiology HTL
  5. 5. Mycobacterium: (1) x M. tuberculosis x Types: (Koch’s bacilli) x Human -man x long, slender, x Bovine - hogs & granular curved or cattle rounded end x Avian - birds x AFS (+), Gm (+) x Pathogenecity: no x *glycerine toxins produced x Lowenstein, x Productive Lesions Petroffs, Dorset’s , x Exudative Lesion CorpersMicrobiology HTL
  6. 6. AFS property of Mycobacterium: x Due to the presence of mycolic acid. x Mycolic acid gives M. tuberculosis many characteristics that defy medical treatment. x They lend the organisms increased resistance to chemical damage & dehydration. x Prevent the effective activity of hydrophobic antibiotics x Allows it to grow within macrophages which makes it resistant to the immune system actionMicrobiology HTL
  7. 7. Microbiology HTL
  8. 8. Mycobacterium (2) x Types of tuberclosis x M. leprae ( Leprae bacilli, Hansen’s bacilli) x Primary infection x long, slender, usually x Reactivation TB straight, non-motile, x Millary TB grouped like cigarette x Diagnosis: packets x microscopic exam x Pathognesis: Leprosy x chest x-ray x Acute nodular x tuberculin test x Anesthetic or nerve x culture of sputumMicrobiology HTL

  16. 16. LACTOBACILLUS -Most species of this non-spore-forming bacterium ferment glucose into lactose, hence the name Lactobacillus. -The most common application of Lactobacillus is industrial, i.e. for dairy production. -This genus also contains several bacteria that make up part of the natural flora of the human vagina..Microbiology HTL
  17. 17. x Because of their ability to derive lactic acid from glucose, these bacteria create an acidic environment which inhibits growth of many bacterial species which can lead to urogenital infections. x Lactobacillus is generally harmless to humans, rarely inciting harmful infections or diseases. x Treatment of this vancomycin-resistant microbe usually consists of high doses of penicillin in combination with gentamicinMicrobiology HTL
  18. 18. Microbiology HTL
  19. 19. ERYSIPELOTHRIX x E. rhusiopathiae, the only species of this genus, is better known as a veterinary pathogen than as a human pathogen. x When cultured on blood agar or some other nutrient medium, Erysipelothrix forms notably large colonies. x This ubiquitous microbe has been found in many farm animals such as pigs, horses, and turkeys.Microbiology HTL
  20. 20. x Occasionaly, though, it can infect a human host and cause an inflammatory skin disease, Erysipeloid. x Treatment usually consists of penicillin G, ampicillin, or cephalothin. x Most clinical strains have been found to be resistant to the super-antibiotic, vancomycin.Microbiology HTL
  21. 21. Microbiology HTL
  22. 22. LISTERIA: x Gram-positive rod which is not capable of forming endospores. x Although several species of this bacterium exist, our discussion will focus only on the two species of human pathogenic significance: L. monocytogenes and L. ivanovii. x In particular, L. monocytogenes has been implicated in several food poisoning epidemics. This is a normal inhabitant of the gastrointestinal tract and of animal fecesMicrobiology HTL
  23. 23. x Infected suffers from vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea. x Those at high risk include newborns, pregnant women and their fetuses, the elderly, and persons lacking a healthy immune system. x The bacterium usually causes septicema and meningitis in patients with supressed immune function. x Causes Listeriosis, an inflammation of the brain. x Antibiotics are recommended for treatment of infection because most strains of Listeria are sensitive to ampicillin and gentamicin.Microbiology HTL
  24. 24. Microbiology HTL

  63. 63. EDWARDSIELLA x Edwardsiella tarda is the only species in this genus of enteric bacteria which is important to our discussion. x E. tarda is biochemically similar to E. coli with the exception that E. tarda produces hydrogen sulfide. x This bacterium is usually found in aquatic animals and reptiles. However, it has been known to cause gastroenteritis and wound infections in humans. xMicrobiology HTL
  64. 64. LABORATORY INDICATIONS x Lysine + x Hydrogen sulfide + x -/+ TSI reaction (with gas) x Indole + x Citrate -Microbiology HTL
  65. 65. CITROBACTER x Citrobacter is not considered to be an enteric pathogen because it is normal gut flora. x When plated, Citrobacter colonies bare a strong resemblance to E. coli colonies. x C. freundii is suspected to cause diarrhea and possibly extraintestinal infections. C. diversus has been linked to a few cases of meningitis in newbornsMicrobiology HTL
  66. 66. LABORATORY INDICATIONS: x Lysine - x Hydrogen sulfide + (C. freundii) x +/+ TSI reaction (with gas) x Citrate + x Slow ureaseMicrobiology HTL
  67. 67. SERRATIA x Members of the Serratia genus were once known as harmless organisms that produced a characteristic red pigment. x Today, Serratia marcescens is considered a harmful human pathogen which has been known to cause urinary tract infections, wound infections, and pneumonia.Microbiology HTL
  68. 68. x Serratia bacteria also have many antibiotic resistance properties which may become important if the incidence of Serratia infections dramatically increases. x Serratia can be distinguished from other genera belonging to Enterobacteriaceae by its production of three special enzymes: DNase, lipase, and gelatinase.Microbiology HTL
  69. 69. LABORATORY INDICATIONS: x Lysine + x Citrate + x Indol - x +/+ TSI (No gas) x DNase +Microbiology HTL
  70. 70. PROTEUSx Proteus, like almost every other bacterium in this family, can cause urinary tract infections and hospital-acquired infections. Proteus is unique, however, because it is highly motile and does not form regular colonies.Microbiology HTL
  71. 71. x Proteus forms what are known as "swarming colonies" when plated on non-inhibitory media. The most important member of this genus is considered to be P.mirabilis, a cause of wound and urinary tract infections. Fortunately, most strains of P. mirabilis are sensitive to ampicillin and cephalosporins.Microbiology HTL
  72. 72. x Unlike its relative, P. vulgaris is not sensitive to these antibiotics. However, this organism is isolated less often in the laboratory and usually only targets immunosuppressed individuals. P. mirabilis and P. vulgaris can be differentiated by an indole test for which only P. vulgaris tests positive.Microbiology HTL
  73. 73. LABORATORY INDICATIONS: x Lysine - x Hydrogen sulfide + x Motile x UreaseMicrobiology HTL
  74. 74. MORGANELLA x Not much exciting going on here. Morganella morganii is the only important species of this genus. It can cause urinary tract and wound infections, as well as diarrhea. Chloramphenicol is a good choice for treating Morganella infections. x Indole + , Ornithine + x Citrate +Microbiology HTL
