Diarrheagenic E coli strains:

- Enteropathogenic:Infants.. mild-chronic diarrhea, Enterotoxigenic.. Heat-Labile/Stable Enterotoxin, Watery diarrhea.. More Children than Adults.. Travelers diarrhea..Contamination Water/Vegetables / Fresh food

coli form group 2

4 pseudomonas group
4. Pseudomonas group
  • Gram-ve bacilli, Oxidase-positive, Single polar flagellum,Fimbriae, obligate aerobe, widely distributed in human intestine, animal, plants, environment & water. Survive in disinfection solutions.. 70% Alcohol..contaminate Hospital sinks & equipments.

Produce several hemolytic-protolytic enzymes, toxins, fluorescent pigments-pyocyanin / Burn-Blue Green Pus.. can overcome host defenses.. Wounds,, External Otitis Media, Septicemia, Pneumonia, UTI, Nosocomial Infection, Mutlidrug Resistance.. Intrinsic-R to many antibiotics..Common Nosocomial/ opportunistic Pathogen.
5 salmonella group
5-Salmonella group
  • Gram-ve bacilli.. Lactose-ve, urease-ve, Motile, Facultative Anaerobes.. Endotoxin/LPS, Cytotoxin.. common in Nature.. Humans, most domestic & wild Animals, Birds, Reptiles ..Develop of specific antibodies during invasive infection against their O/H- Antigens..
  • Salmonellosis:
  • 1-Gastroenteritis/ Food-poisoning Salmonella: S. enterica/ enteritidis.. Numerous Serotypes.. Common Farm Chickens, Pets.. Contamination Chicken Meat-Eggs, Water.. Fecal-Oral Infection.. Incub. 8-24 h.. Mild-Severe Diarrhea, Vomiting, Fever.. Mostly Self-Limited in Adults. More severe infection in children.. Septicemia-Meningitis in Immuno-compromised Pat.
typhoidal salmonella
Typhoidal Salmonella

2- Typhoidal Salmonella:Human Enteric Fever.. Salmonella enterica /subtype Typhi & Paratyhi A, B, C., Fecal-Oral route, Fecal water contamination or drinks/ Fresh Food.. Intestine..Blood, Meningis,Urinary tract.. Incubation Period 1-3 Weeks, high Fever up to 42, Diarrhea, constipation, Septicemia, Meningitis, Hepatospenomegaly, Intestinal Perforation.. Healthy Carriers.. Mostly females in Gallbladder.. Less Intestine.. Repeat chronic infection.. Stool Excretion..single cases and community water outbreaks.

  • Lab Diagnosis:Culture Feces, blood, Urine, CSF, Selective Media.. Serological Widel Test for detection of specific antibodies against O & H antigens ( Titer > 160 ).. Antibiotic, Human vaccine available.
6 shigella group
6-Shigella group
  • Shigella species.. Gram-ve bacilli, cause Only human disease.. Endo/Enterotoxins.. Susceptible to Dryness, Acid, Low-High Tempt.Fecal-Oral infection.. Water, fresh Vegetations,Common serotypes, S. Sonnei, Sh.boydii Sh. flexneriPurulent-Bloody-Diarrhea..Fever abdominal pain..Recovery 2-4 days with treatment.. No chronic healthy Carriers.
  • S.dysenteriae.. Enterotoxin (Neurocytotoxin), Severe Necrosis, high Fever, Severe Purulent-Bloody-Diarrhea

& Abdominal Cramps, CNS affection.. Rare Septicemia.

  • Lab Diagnosis:Feces Culture.. S-S Agar, Hecton–Enteric Agar.. Recommended Antibiotic Treatment, Control Sanitation & hygiene.. water, fresh Food.
7 vibrio cholerae
7-Vibrio cholerae
  • Gram-veVibrios.. Oxidase-positive & Motile, AerobicAlkaline Medium (pH >8-9)..Killed in low acidity.. Survive in saline water for long time.. Endemic In India/Bangladish.. Highlyinfectious.. EpidemicHuman Outbreaks.. Water, Fresh Green leaves & Food
