Flashcards in Lec 8-4 - Atypical... Mycoplasma/Legionella/Chlamydia Deck (30):
1

community acquired pneumonia that is consolidative and is 1-2 dense lobes of dense infiltrate

lobar

2

CAP that is diffuse and interstitial and patchy

atypical

3

legionella has very blank food requirements

fastidious

4

most common legionella serotypes

1,6,4,3

5

legionella is gram blank and its enzymes breakdown blank tissue to cause atypical pneumonia

negative, lung

6

legionella always comes from the blank like water, mud, amoebae

environment... not person to person

7

legionella lives here

distal airways/alveoli

8

legionella can cause blank or blank CAP in those who are blank

lobar, atypical, immunocompromised (copd, smokers)

9

legionella can cause this which has mild fever, chills, malaise, headache

pontiac fever

10

think legionella pneumonia if gram stain shows blank but not blank

wbc, organisms

11

think legionella if patient doesnt respond to blank but cultures do not reveal blank

antibioitics, pathogen

12

legionella is often diagnosed by blank even though each serotype shows up differently

direct fluorescent antibody

13

agar for legionella

buffered charcoal yeast extract

14

this is used to diagnose only serotype 1 of legionella

urinary antigen

15

serology diagnosis is not useful for blank stage

acute

16

legionella antibiotics are these but blank doesnt work

fluoroquinolones/macrolides, penicillin

17

legionella is killed in faucets by blank ions

silver, copper

18

mycoplasma has a single blank and has blank food requirements

serogroup, fastidious

19

mycoplasma part that mediates attachment to cells

P1 protein

20

mycoplasma is spread through blank contact like college, barracks and are slow spreading

close

21

mycoplasma causes these

pharyngitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, otitis media

22

preferred method of diagnosing mycoplasma

serology (looking for IgM)

23

mycoplasma diagnosis doesnt use blank

culture

24

mycoplasmas are treated with blank not blank

tetracyclines/macrolides, not cell wall agents

25

organism that is considered a bridge organism because it is like a virus and bacteria

chlamydia

26

cant treat chlamydia with blank agents

cell wall (like penicillin)

27

diagnosis of chlamydia

NAAT, culture (look for inclusion bodies)

28

the chlamydia type that can cause pneumonia in newborns but is an std

chlamydia trachomatis

29

chlamydia that can cause pneumonia but is a single serotype and was originally called TWAR

C pneumoniae

30

chlamydia that causes pneumonia and is from contact with birds

C psittaci
