Question Answer
S. pyogenes direct infectionpharyngitis (strep throat), necrotizing fasciitis (tissue invasion enzymes), scarlet fever (rash from in to out), TSS (bacremic with evidence of fasciitis)
S. pyogenes antibody-mediated infection-rheumatic fever = TYPE II HYPERSENSITIVITY RXN due to M protein (Rhubarb Pie): *M protein Abs cross-react with heart valves*
-glomerulonephritis: Ag/Ab complexes deposited
S. agalactiaeneonatal meningitis, pneumonia, sepsis
S. viridans (2 + two buzzwords)"V"iridans = "V"ery sticky
- subacute bacterial endocarditis (STICKS TO PROSTHETIC VALVES in pts with VALVE PROBLEMS)
S. pneumoniae (4 + buzzword)-pneumonia (RUSTY SPUTUM vs. bright red jelly = Klebsiella)
-meningitis (adults)
S. aureus toxin mediated (3)gastroenteritis, TSS (MTSS/tampons), scalded skin syndrome (exfoliative toxin)
S. aureus direct invasion mediated (3)pneumonia, *meningitis, *osteomyelitis (children), *acute endocarditis, septic arthritis, skin infection, sepsis, UTI
S. epidermidis (4 + generalization)prosthetic joint infection, IV sepsis, catheter UTI, ENDOCARDITIS from prosthetic heart valves *STUFF THAT GETS STUCK INTO YOU AT HOSPITAL; i.e. mostly nosicomal*
S. saprophyticus (1 + buzzword)UTI; leading cause in *NEWLY SEXUALLY ACTIVE FEMALES*
B. anthracis (3)- painless black ulcer on skin with central necrosis (ESCHAR)
- pulmonary hemorrhage, WIDENED MEDIASTINUM
- abdominal pain/ bloody diarrhea (rare)
B. cereusfood poisoning
M. tuberculosis (two stages)1º: Initially non-specific, then affects lungs – proceeds with either resolution or progression (reactivation or miliary)
• Granuloma (asymptomatic); Xray or PPD for definitive dx. Bacteria can be dormant in this stage.
• Reactivation or disseminated/systemic (MILIARY)

Post-1º: Cavitary lesions with bloody sputum (Cavitary disease)
M. leprae (2 + buzzword)1. Tuberculoid: Strong cell-mediated response = POSITIVE LEPROMIN SKIN TEST (delayed HS rx) = HYPOPIGMENTED SKIN MACULES (buzz) = few invasive org.
2. Lepromatous: Weak cell-mediated; strong anti-body = NEGATIVE LEPROMIN = lots of invasive org. NASAL MUCOSA INVOLVED, NERVE DAMAGE – DISFIGURING SKIN LESIONS
C. botulinumcranial nerve palsies, muscle weakness, respiratory paralysis
C. tetanimuscle spasm, lockjaw, risus sardonicus, respiratory paralysis
C. perfringensgas gangrene
C. difficilepseudomembranous colitis
C. diphtheriae (3 + buzzword)• sore throat/exudative pharyngitis (PSEUDOMEMBRANE)
- systemic complications if you try to pull off pseudomembrane.
• myocarditis (AV block) and recurrent laryngeal n. palsy (BOTH TOXIN MEDIATED)

N gonorrhoaeurethritis, PID, bacteremia (septic arthritis, rash); ophthalmia neonatorum (1st 5 days after birth)
E. colineonatal meningitis; UTI; hospital acquired pneumonia/ sepsis; diarrhea
K. pneumoniae (buzzword)pneumonia (necrotic destruction of alveolar spaces), bloody sputum/CURRANT JELLY (common in alcoholics)
Shigellabloody diarrhea

-Long term catheter
Acinetobacterhospital acquired pneumonia, UTI
meningitis (children), *acute epiglottitis*, septic arthritis (infants), sepsis, pneumonia
