• acute
  • Bloody sputum (known as hemoptysis) may also occur with tuberculosis, Gram-negative pneumonia, and lung abscesses as well as more commonly with acute bronchitis. (wikipedia.org)
  • The second week is more akin to acute bacteremic pneumococcal pneumonia with continuous high fevers, headaches, cough, and dyspnea. (wikipedia.org)
  • Acute radiation syndrome Acute viral hepatitis Addison's disease Atypical pneumonia (mycoplasma) AIDS Anorexia nervosa Anxiety disorder Appendicitis Cancer Chronic pain Chronic kidney disease Celiac disease Congestive heart failure, perhaps due to congestion of the liver with venous blood Crohn's disease Dehydration Dementia Drug addiction Hypervitaminosis D Hypothyroidism can cause anorexia and weight gain despite the loss of appetite.

  • chills
  • Play media People with infectious pneumonia often have a productive cough, fever accompanied by shaking chills, shortness of breath, sharp or stabbing chest pain during deep breaths, and an increased rate of breathing. (wikipedia.org)
  • rRNA
  • Mycoplasmas are further classified by the sequence composition of 16s rRNA. (wikipedia.org)
  • All mycoplasmas of the pneumoniae group possess similar 16s rRNA variations unique to the group, of which M. pneumoniae has a 6.3% variation in the conserved regions, that suggest mycoplasmas formed by degenerative evolution from the gram-positive eubacterial group that includes bacilli, streptococci, and lactobacilli. (wikipedia.org)
  • Deaths
  • Pneumonia affects approximately 450 million people globally (7% of the population) and results in about 4 million deaths per year. (wikipedia.org)
  • CATTLE
  • There were reports linking Eaton agent to the PPLOs or mycoplasmas, well known then as parasites of cattle and rodents, due to sensitivity to antimicrobials. (wikipedia.org)
  • disease
  • Eaton suggested the possibility that the disease was caused by a mycoplasma, but the agent did not grow on the standard pleuropneumonia-like organism (PPLO) media of the time. (wikipedia.org)
  • The disease may be classified by where it was acquired with community, hospital, or health care associated pneumonia. (wikipedia.org)
