Diphtheria is an acute pharyngeal or cutaneous infection caused mainly by toxigenic strains of Corynebacterium diphtheriae and rarely by other, less common Corynebacterium species. Symptoms are either nonspecific skin infections or pseudomembranous pharyngitis followed by myocardial and neural tissue damage secondary to the exotoxin.

Bacterial Exoenzymes and Toxins as Virulence Factors. After exposure and adhesion, the next step in pathogenesis is invasion, which can involve enzymes and pathogens achieve invasion by entering the bloodstream, an effective means of dissemination because blood vessels pass. electrophoresis ofdiphtheriabacilli iii.

Hence it is still important to consider the available methods of treating the carrier state. For the detection of the diphtheria carrier the routine morphological diagnosis of a culture from the swab is quite insufficient.

The virulence mechanisms of B. cereus are an enterotoxin and a pyogenic toxin. Accidents in nature resulting in cuts or abrasions contami-nated with soil or vegetation, intravenous drug abuse, ingestion of contaminated foods, and traumatic introduction into a normally sterile site through the use of contaminated medical equipment are associated.

Written By: Diphtheria, acute infectious disease caused by the bacillus Corynebacterium diphtheriae and characterized by a primary lesion, usually in the upper respiratory tract, and more generalized symptoms resulting from the spread of the bacterial toxin throughout the body.

Bacillus cereus is a food contaminant with greatly varying enteropathogenic potential. Almost all known strains harbor the genes for at least one of the three enterotoxins Nhe, Hbl and CytK.

Diphtheria can cause a swollen neck, sometimes referred to as a bull neck.

Pili or fimbriae are known virulence factors that facilitate bacterial colonization of specific host tissues and pathogenesis. Corynebacterium diphtheriae, the causative agent of pharyngeal. Introduction. The presence of Corynebacterium diphtheriae still poses a potential risk to the population of industrialized and emerging nations.

Other factors besides antitoxin protection influence vulnerability to diphtheria, namely, the general immune status of the person infected, as well as the number and virulence of diphtheria bacilli by: A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text.

potential virulence factors with regard to. Diphtheria is an acute, communicable disease caused by Corynebacterium diphtheriae.

The disease is generally characterized by local growth of the bacterium in the pharynx with pseudomembrane formation or, less commonly, in the stomach or lungs; systemic dissemination of toxin then invokes lesions in distant by:   Diphtheria is a highly contagious bacterial infection of the nose and throat.

Thanks to routine immunization, diphtheria is a disease of the past in most parts of the : Markus Macgill. Gram-positive bacteria retain the color of the primary stain (crystal violet) in the Gram staining procedure and appear as purple/violet under a light microscope.

Diphtheria is a toxicosis caused by infection with Corynebacterium diphtheriae.

Genus and species are derived from Greek roots: korynee (“club”) after the microscopic appearance of the organisms and diphtheria (“leather hide”) for the pseudomembrane that is the hallmark of respiratory tract infection.

A number of media were used for morphological and cultural study of strains of virulent diphtheria bacilli, from which it appeared that three different types could be recognized.

These three types could be differentiated on a large number of different media but not on Loeffler. The types recognized were stable and there was no evidence that one could become converted into : M.

Gundel, C. Tietz. Corynebacterium diphtheriae is the pathogenic bacterium that causes diphtheria. It is also known as the Klebs-Löffler bacillus, because it was discovered in by German bacteriologists Edwin Klebs (–) and Friedrich Löffler (–).
