Resistance o Linezolid This is a lorefin drug and not fully tested but is an alternative to vanco. Resistentance Staph Saphrophyticus NO PIGMENT Enzymes o Catalase + Symptoms o Frequent cause of UTI: Ages: 5-10 because they tend to play with themselves more at this age 18-24 post coital UTI, especially with no circumcision o Recall that E. Coli is the MOST COMMON CAUSE OF UTI!!! STREPTOCOCCUS SPECIES: General Characteristics o Gram + cocci in CHAINS o Groups A, B, C, D o Types of hemolysis -hemolysis partial hemolysis Green Zone -hemolysis complete hemolysis Clear Zone

-hemolysis no hemolysis Red Zone Streptokinase is responsible for -hemolysis it is used for breaking up clots and binds up fibrinogen in acute MI, but if patients had recent Strep infection, the patient has built antibodies to streptokinase and it will not work This is the reason that they doctors use tPA instead!!! Dosing: 75,000 units IV bolus and 75,000 units drip Works by converting plasminogen plasmin breaks up the clot Binds up fibrinogen wontt allow for anymore clots o Allows 1-3% to bleed to death o tPA causes < 3% to bleed to death o APSAC can induce tPA reversal

Strep Strains: Immunity is type specific, that is why you can get recurrent strep infections Strep pneumoniae aka Pneumococcus o Gram + diplococci o hemolysis

Skin: o Leschmaniasis Gulf war syndrome Transmitted by sand flies o Leschmania Donivini Attacks skin and nostrils o Leschmania Rhodiensis Likes to be systemic (in the blood) Attacks organs Caled Kala-Azar if systemic Treatment Stibogluconate Lymphatics: o Wucheria Bacrofti Elephantitis No treatment Blood: o Babesiosis Just like malaria but acts in the East coast Looks different only on smear Treatment with anti malarial Carried by Ixodes tick (lyme disease) o Plasmodium:

Malaria most common strain world wide Fever every 3rd day Quartian (fortnight) Falciparum most fatal (can hemolize all mature RBCs most rapidly) Black water fever (urine turned black with bilirubin) Vivax go to liver (chronic malaria) Prophylactic Meds: Likes reticulocyes (young RBCs) 1 pill/2wk before you leave Ovale - go to liver (chronic malaria) 1/wk while gone Likes mature RBC 4 wks after coming back Symptoms: total tx wks = 6 wks + wks away Malaria = quartian o Gives you fever every third day Falciparum, vivax, ovale = tertian o Gives you fever every other day Usually associated with travel

Oxidize RBC membrane causing Treatment: hemolytic anemia and killing Quinine bacteria with it not good for G6PD Chloraquine mostly RBCs b/c it will lyse these cells Mefloquine good liver penetration. Primaquine best liver penetration o Always start for vivax and ovale o Important reasons for treatment: Malaria is the most common parasite Most common infectious disease related cause of death in the world Most common cause of hemolytic anemia in the world. Rickettsia (+) Eosinophilia Likes to invade blood vessels causing vasculitis bleed or clot.
