• virulence
  • Jonsson P, Lindberg M, Haraldsson I, Wadström T.: Staphylococcus aureus in a mouse mastitis model: studies of alpha hemolysin, coagulase and protein A as possible virulence determinants with protoplast fusion and gene cloning. (springer.com)
  • Overlapping activity with the other proteases, plus the complexity of virulence determinants and the infection site environment makes it difficult to determine the impact of the protease in pathogenesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • boils
  • The most common complications of boils are scarring and infection or abscess of the skin, spinal cord, brain, kidneys, or other organs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Squeezing or cutting boils in the danger triangle of the face can be particularly dangerous if done outside a medical setting, as blood vessels in this area drain into the brain and can carry serious infections there. (wikipedia.org)
  • Symptoms
  • Symptoms such as mild sticky eyelids, thicker margins of the eyelid, and missing eyelashes occur due to Staphylococcal blepharitis. (news-medical.net)
  • The symptoms of a Staph Infection include a collection of pus, such as a boil or furuncle, or abscess. (wikipedia.org)
  • Common symptoms of Staphylococcus aureus food poisoning include: a rapid onset which is usually 1-6 hours, nausea, explosive vomiting for up to 24 hours, abdominal cramps/pain, headache, weakness, diarrhea and usually a subnormal body temperature. (wikipedia.org)
  • These individuals often experience severe pain at the site of the skin infection, followed by rapid progression of symptoms as described above for TSS. (wikipedia.org)
  • If the infection is not controlled, the process becomes chronic and systemic symptoms are usually present, including draining fistulas, loosening of teeth and sequestra formation. (wikipedia.org)
  • impetigo
  • Sometimes the infections are relatively limited (such as a stye, boil, furuncle, or carbuncle), but other times they may spread to other skin areas (causing cellulitis, folliculitis, or impetigo). (wikipedia.org)
  • cellulitis
  • Orbital cellulitis occurs commonly from bacterial infection spread via the paranasal sinuses. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other ways in which orbital cellulitis may occur is from infection in the blood stream or from an eyelid skin infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • Upper respiratory infection, sinusitis, trauma to the eye, ocular or periocular infection and systemic infection all increase one's risk of orbital cellulitis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Due to this widespread belief, empirical therapy for significant cellulitis often involves dual-therapy to cover both staphylococci and streptococci, however this has not shown to be of clinical benefit. (wikipedia.org)
  • Acute OM of the jaws may give a similar appearance to a typical odontogenic infection, but cellulitis does not tend to spread from the periosteal envelope of the involved bone. (wikipedia.org)
  • commonly
  • It most commonly refers to an acute spread of infection into the eye socket from either the adjacent sinuses or through the blood. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is most commonly used to treat infections. (wikipedia.org)
  • Massive, diffuse infections commonly involved the whole side of the mandible, or the whole of one side and the opposite side as far as the mental foramen. (wikipedia.org)
  • antibiotics
  • Inevitably this has left fewer effective bactericidal antibiotics to treat these often life-threatening infections (Figure 1 ). (jci.org)
  • As rapidly as new antibiotics are introduced, staphylococci have developed efficient mechanisms to neutralize them (Table 1 ). (jci.org)
  • Using lyosptaphin to treat "Staphylococcal" biofilm associated infections may prove to be preferable to using antibiotics as it may be possible to administer the enzyme at relatively low doses and disrupt a staphylococcal bioflim, therefore eliminating the need for surgical removal of the infected device. (wikipedia.org)
  • severe
  • is a life-threatening infection characterized by severe headache, sore throat, fever as high as 105 ° F (40.6 ° C), and a sunburn-like rash that spreads from the face to the rest of the body. (encyclopedia.com)
  • In a severe infection, an individual may experience fever, swollen lymph nodes, and fatigue. (wikipedia.org)
