Family Neisseriaceae

• Gram-negative cocci • Residents of mucous membranes of warm-

blooded animals • Genera include Neisseria, Moraxella,

Acinetobacter • 2 primary human pathogens

Neisseria gonorrhoeae Neisseria meningitidis

3 Docsity.com

Neisseria • Gram-negative, bean-shaped, diplococci • No flagella or spores • capsules on pathogens • pili • Strict parasites, do not survive long outside of

the host • Aerobic or microaerophilic • Pathogenic species require enriched complex

media and CO2 4

Docsity.com

10 Docsity.com

Gonorrhea diagnosis

11 Docsity.com

Neisseria meningitidis

• Virulence factors – capsule, pili, IgA protease • Many strains exist • Prevalent cause of meningitis • Disease begins when bacteria enter bloodstream,

pass into cranial circulation, multiply in meninges; very rapid onset; endotoxin causes hemorrhage and shock; can be fatal

• Treated with penicillin, chloramphenicol • Vaccines exist

12 Docsity.com

Neisseria meningitidis

13

Spread of bacteria from a nasopharyngeal infection to blood and CSF

The Gram-Negative Bacilli of Medical Importance

14 Chapter 20

Docsity.com

Septic Shock-Endotoxic shock • LPS (lipopolysacchardide)

Component of Gram negative cell wall is a potent immune stimulant.

• May lead to circulatory failure, tissue damage and death

15

Release of LPS as bacteria breaks apart

Docsity.com

Aerobic Gram-Negative Bacilli

Pseudomonas – an opportunistic pathogen • Brucella & Francisella – zoonotic pathogens • Bordetella & Legionella – mainly human

pathogens • Alcaligenes – opportunistic pathogen

16 Docsity.com

Pseudomonas

• small gram-negative rods with a single polar flagellum, produce oxidase & catalase

• highly versatile metabolism

17 Docsity.com

Pseudomonas aeruginosa

18 Single polar flagellum Docsity.com

disinfectants, drugs, drying • frequent contaminant of ventilators, IV solutions,

anesthesia equipment • opportunistic pathogen

19 Docsity.com

Pseudomonas aeruginosa • common cause of nosocomial infections

in hosts with burns, neoplastic disease, cystic fibrosis

• Can cause: pneumonia, UTI, abscesses • Septicemia can lead to: endocarditis,

meningitis, bronchopneumonia • Corneal ulcers from contaminated lens

solutions • Ear infections (Otitis) “swimmer’s ear” • Skin rash (contaminated hot tubs,

saunas, swimming pools) • multidrug resistant

20 Docsity.com

Docsity.com

Brucella • tiny gram-negative coccobacilli • 2 species

Brucella abortus (cattle) – Brucella suis (pigs)

• Brucellosis (synonyms=malta fever, undulant fever, & Bang disease) – a zoonosis transmitted to humans from infected animals

• fluctuating pattern of fever –weeks to a year • combination of tetracycline & rifampin or streptomycin • animal vaccine available (efforts underway to eradicate

from cattle herds and swine) • potential bioweapon

23 Docsity.com

Brucellosis

24 Undulating fever Docsity.com

Francisella tularensis • causes tularemia, a zoonotic disease of mammals

endemic to the northern hemisphere, particularly rabbits

• transmitted by contact with infected animals, water & dust or bites by vectors

• headache, backache, fever, chills, malaise & weakness • 10% death rate in systemic & pulmonic forms • intracellular persistence can lead to relapse • gentamicin or tetracycline • attenuated vaccine available • potential bioterrorism agent

25 Docsity.com

Bordetella pertussis • minute, encapsulated coccobacillus • causes pertussis or whooping cough, a

communicable childhood affliction • acute respiratory syndrome • often severe, life-threatening complications in

babies • reservoir – apparently healthy carriers • transmission by direct contact or inhalation of

aerosols • May be relatively common in adults (as chronic

cough) and be misdiagnosed as a cold or the flu

26 Docsity.com

Bordetella pertussis

• virulence factors – receptors that recognize & bind to ciliated respiratory

epithelial cells – toxins that destroy & dislodge ciliated cells

• loss of ciliary mechanism leads to buildup of mucus & blockage of the airways

• Hacking coughs followed by abrupt deep inhalation (whoop)

• Vaccine does not give long-term immunity so adults and older children can have a recurrence

27 Docsity.com

Pertussis

28

Prevalence increasing due to decrease in vaccination rate in children as a result of concern over its publicised vaccine side effects

Docsity.com

Alcaligenes

• live primarily in soil & water • may become normal flora • A. faecalis – most common clinical species

– isolated from feces, sputum, & urine – occasionally associated with opportunistic

infections – pneumonia, septicemia, & meningitis

29 Docsity.com

Legionella pneumophilia

30 Docsity.com

Legionella pneumophila

• widely distributed in water • 1976 epidemic of pneumonia afflicted 200

American Legion members attending a convention in Philadelphia & killed 29 (source was a contaminated air-conditioning system) Legionnaires disease

• Most prevalent in males over 50 • nosocomial disease in elderly patients • Symptoms: fever, cough, diarrhea, abdominal pain,

pneumonia fatality rate of 3-30% • azithromycin

31 Docsity.com

Enterobacteriaceae Family

• enterics • large family of gram-negative bacteria • many members inhabit soil, water, & decaying matter

& common occupants of large bowel of humans & animals

• all members are small, non-sporing rods • facultative anaerobes, grow best in air • cause diarrhea through enterotoxins • divided into coliforms (lactose fermenters) and non-

coliforms (non lactose fermenters)

32 Docsity.com

Dichotomous Key for the Enterobacteriaceae

33 Docsity.com

Diarrheal Disease • Two Mechanisms

– Toxigenic • Organism itself does not invade the tissue • Enterotoxins released which cause cells to increase secretion

secretory diarrhea

– Invasive • Microbes breakdown epithelial cells and form ulcerations. May see

bleeding

• Fluid and electrolyte loss may result in dehydration…death. • Diarrheal disease = 40% of infectious diseases

– 18% of death worldwide

Escherichia coli

• most common aerobic & non-fastidious bacterium in gut

• enterotoxigenic E. coli causes severe diarrhea due to heat-labile toxin & heat-stable toxin – stimulate secretion & fluid loss; also has fimbrae

• enteroinvasive E. coli causes inflammatory disease of the large intestine

• enteropathogenic E. coli linked to wasting from infantile diarrhea; O157:H7 strain causes hemorrhagic syndrome & kidney damage

Infection cycle

Docsity.com

Pathology of plague

• bubonic – bacillus multiplies in flea bite, enters lymph, causes necrosis & swelling called a bubo in groin or axilla

• septicemic – progression to massive bacterial growth; virulence factors cause intravascular coagulation & subcutaneous hemorrhage. Necrosis and skin blackening occur – black plague

• pneumonic – infection localized to lungs, highly contagious; fatal without treatment

• treatment: streptomycin, tetracycline or chloramphenicol

• Killed or attenuated vaccine that gives a short-term protection exists

56 Docsity.com

57 Classic bubo (painful nodule that can rupture to the surface) Docsity.com

Pasteruella multocida

• zoonotic genus • opportunistic infections • animal bites or scratches cause local abscess

that can spread to joints, bones, & lymph nodes (septicemia)

• treatment: penicillin & tetracycline

58 Docsity.com

Hemophilus • tiny gram-negative pleomorphic rods • Fastidious. can’t grow on blood agar without special

techniques. • some species are normal colonists of upper

respiratory tract or vagina (H. aegyptius, H. parainfluenzae)

• others are virulent species responsible of conjunctivitis, childhood meningitis, & chancroid
