  • bacterium
  • Though GBS is an asymptomatic colonizer of the gastrointestinal human tract in up to 30% of otherwise healthy adults, including pregnant women, this opportunistic harmless bacterium can, in some circumstances, cause severe invasive infections. (wikipedia.org)
  • meningitis
  • For invasive infections additional tests may be required, such as a blood test for bacteraemia or cerebral spinal fluid test for meningitis. (yourgenome.org)
  • L. meningitis should be treated with a combination of ampicillin and gentamicin because it is synergistic in vitro and provides more rapid bacterial clearance in animal models of infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • Because of the clinical characteristics of the patients, acute streptococcal infection was suspected, and bacterial specimens were obtained with sterile paper strips (Periopaper, ProFlow, Inc, Amityville, NY, USA) by inserting into the gingival crevice until mild resistance was felt, and left in place for 30 seconds. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Complications should be suspected when the clinical course is characterized by shock, respiratory failure, focal neurological deficits, a positive CSF culture after 48-72 hours of appropriate antibiotic therapy, or infection with certain organisms, such as Citrobacter koseri and Cronobacter sakazakii for example. (wikipedia.org)
  • skin
  • Where the infection has caused a lot of skin damage, for example in cases of necrotising fasciitis, damaged tissue may be removed surgically. (yourgenome.org)
  • Infection of GAS may spread through direct contact with mucus or sores on the skin. (wikipedia.org)
  • Infections in fish manifest as meningoencephalitis, skin lesions, and septicemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • More severe infections can result in vesicles (pox or insect bite-like marks), blisters, and petechiae (small purple or red spots), with possible skin necrosis (death). (wikipedia.org)
  • diseases
  • Candice White is a PA and Sam Shelburne is an associate professor of medicine in the Department of Infectious Diseases, Infection Control and employee Health, University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Houston. (lww.com)
  • susceptible
  • Freshwater and saltwater fish including tilapia, red drum, hybrid striped bass, and rainbow trout are among those susceptible to infection by S. iniae. (wikipedia.org)
