assessment of patients with infections
Assessment of patients with infections
  • History
  • Examination
  • Investigations
history
History
  • Specific symptoms e.g. fever, rigors, sweats
  • Risk factors for infection
      • Travel
      • Infectious contacts
      • Occupation
      • Pets/birds
      • Sex/needles
      • Time since exposure/how long unwell
      • Previous medical problems/medications
investigations 1
Investigations 1
  • Baseline blood tests
      • Inflammatory markers: PV, ESR,CRP
      • LFTS
  • Culture things
      • Pus
      • Blood
      • Urine
      • Sputum
      • CSF
      • Biopsies
investigations 2
Investigations 2
  • Serology: Measure antibodies to specific infections IgG/IgM
  • Molecular methods
      • DNA amplification-PCR
  • Radiology
      • Plain X-rays
      • Ultrasound
      • CT/MRI
      • Isotope scans
immunity 1
Immunity 1
  • Innate Immunity
    • General or non specific host defences which provide the initial protection against microbes
      • Physical: skin, mucous membranes, intestinal tract, eye
      • Colonisation resistance by the normal flora
      • Mechanical removal: sneezing, coughing
      • Non-specific immune system: phagocytosis, complement, cytokines, natural killer cells
immunity2
Immunity2
  • Specific immunity
    • Characterised by antigen specificity, memory and heightened response on subsequent antigen exposure
      • Humoral immunity: B cell receptors-Antibodies-activation of complement by classical pathway
      • Cell mediated immunity: T cell receptors-cytotoxic T cells
vaccination

The act of artificially inducing immunity or providing protection from disease

Vaccines have led to the global eradication of smallpox, elimination of polio from western world and reduced incidence of many common disease

Vaccination
vaccination 2
Vaccination 2
  • Active Immunisation
    • A vaccine which stimulates body’s immune system to produce antibodies or cell mediated immunity
      • Live (attenuated infectious agents) Immunological response similar to that of natural infection. Life long immunity with one dose
      • Promote cell mediated immunity
      • MMR, polio(o), yellow fever
vaccination 3
Vaccination 3
  • Active Immunisation
      • Inactivated (contain components of the organism or exotoxin) Diptheria, whooping cough, tetanus, HiB
      • Need repeated vaccinations and boosters to obtain high level/long lasting immunity
      • 1st(/2nd) injection produces slow antibody response-IgM
      • Subsequent injections give accelerated and higher level of antibodies IgG
vaccination 4
Vaccination 4
  • Passive immunisation: short term protection by injecting human immunoglobulin. Immediate protection but only for a few weeks
    • Human normal immunoglobulin
      • Hepatitis A, measles
    • Specific immunoglobulin
      • Varicella zoster, hepatitis B
vaccination 5
Vaccination 5
  • Childhood vaccine schedule
    • 3 doses at 2+3+4 months: HiB, DTP, Polio, Meningococcus group C
    • 12-15 months: MMR
    • 3-5 years: DT, Polio, MMR
    • 10-15 years DT, P, Polio
    • BCG
herpes viruses
Herpes viruses
  • Herpes Simplex Virus 1and 2
  • Varicella Zoster
  • Cytomegalovirus
  • Epstein Barr (Infectious Mononucleosis)
  • Human Herpes Virus Type 6 and 7
  • Human Herpes Virus Type 8(Kaposi sarcoma associated herpes virus)
herpes simplex
Herpes Simplex
  • HSV 1 and 2 cause clinically indistinguishable infection.
  • Primary infection: systemic illness
    • Gingivostomatitis and pharyngitis
    • Genital infection
  • Reactivation:
    • Genital HSV 2 more likely to reactivate
    • Oral-labial HSV 1 more likely to reactivate
varicella zoster virus 1
Varicella Zoster Virus 1
  • Causes 2 distinct clinical diseases
  • Chicken Pox(varicella zoster) This is the primary infection.
    • Very contagious
    • Incubation period 10-14 days
    • Benign illness in children
    • Fever, vesicular rash, this then pustulates and scabs
varicella zoster virus 2
Varicella Zoster virus 2
  • Shingles (Herper Zoster) reactivation of VZV which is latent in the dorsal root ganglia
    • Occurs in those who have had chickenpox, usually elderly
    • Vesicular rash with dermatomal distribution
    • H.Z. ophthalmicus, maxillary/mandibular V
    • Ramsay Hunt syndrome
infectious mononucleosis 1
Infectious Mononucleosis 1
  • Epstein Barr virus
  • Acute illness with sore throat (bilateral exudative tonsillitis), fever and lymphadenopathy
  • Ampicillin causes a rash in 90-100%
  • Palatal petechiae in up to 60%
  • Abnormal LFTs in 90%
infectious mononucleosis 2
Infectious Mononucleosis 2
  • Usually resolves within 2-3 weeks
  • Diagnosis by GFST (Paul-Bunell or monospot which detect heterophile antibodies
  • Atypical lymphocytes on blood film
childhood rashes
Childhood Rashes
  • Measles
  • Rubella
  • Scarlet Fever
  • Erythema Infectiosum
  • Exanthem Subitum
measles
Measles
  • Marked decrease in incidence since vaccine
  • Highly infectious, spread by droplets from respiratory secretions
  • Incubation period of 10 - 14 days

measles clinical features
Measles Clinical features
  • Prodrome, malaise, fever, conjunctivitis and coryzal symptoms
  • Koplik’s spots: bluish grey grains on a red base on buccal mucosa opposite 2nd molars

  • Illness lasts 7-10 days
scarlet fever
Scarlet Fever

Rubella

  • Rubella virus first isolated in 1962, recognised clinically from 19th century

rubella clinical features
Rubella, Clinical Features
  • Incubation period 10-18 days

exanthem subitum
Exanthem subitum
  • Called roseola infantum or sixth disease
  • Caused by HHV-6
  • Benign illness of infants/children
