256 Possible Causes for Acid-Fast Bacteria

  • Pittsburgh Pneumonia

    Le·gion·el·la mic·da·'de·i a bacterial species that may be acid-fast and causes Pittsburgh pneumonia, a variant of Legionnaires disease.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] An often intracellular bacteria, and frequent contaminant of water supplies, which may cause bronchopneumonia with consolidation and a fibrinopurulent exudate, fever, pleuritic[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

  • Scrofula

    Diagnosis: Diagnosis is usually performed by needle aspiration biopsy or excisional biopsy of the mass and the histological demonstration of stainable acid-fast bacteria in[findmeacure.com] Diagnosis is usually performed by needle aspiration biopsy or excisional biopsy of the mass and the histological demonstration of stainable acid-fast bacteria in the case[en.wikipedia.org] Diagnosis [ edit ] Diagnosis is usually performed by needle aspiration biopsy or excisional biopsy of the mass and the histological demonstration of stainable acid-fast bacteria[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Disseminated Tuberculosis

    Three consecutive sets of sputum showed acid-fast bacteria, and liquid culture grew Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB; Figure 3).[acgcasereports.gi.org] Acid-fast bacteria tests of sputum and urine were positive ( 50 resistant acid-fast bacilli per line), which permitted a diagnosis of active pulmonary and renal tuberculosis[archbronconeumol.org] If the bacteria is isolated, sensitivity testing should be performed. Acid fast bacilli staining should also be performed.[symptoma.com]

  • Joint Tuberculosis

    TB and BCG showed positive while other bacteria were negative. (2) In 98 cases from patients with joint TB, 81 were positive by PCR, 6 by acid-fast staining, and 17 by culture[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] TB in 98 samples from patients with joint TB and 100 samples from patients with non-tubercular joint disorders were detected by PCR, acid-fast staining and culture,.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] METHODS: PCR was used blindly to detect the DNA of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M.TB) in five specimens of M.TB, 5 of BCG, and 10 of other bacteria. Then, M.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Atypical Mycobacterial Infection

    Mycobacterial infection is increasing, partly due to emerging drug resistance and the HIV epidemic. [ 2 ] Non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are acid-fast bacteria, widespread[patient.info] The relationship of “atypical” acid-fast bacteria to human disease. A preliminary report J Lab Clin Med 1954 ; 44 : 202-209 Runyon E.H.[em-consulte.com] Stains for acid-fast bacteria (AFB) and fungi were negative.[wwwnc.cdc.gov]

  • Silicotuberculosis

    A 76-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital four times from November 2007 to June 2009. In this complex case, the patient had silicosis complicated by broncholithiasis, oesophagobronchial fistulas, and relapsed tuberculosis. She had worked as a stone crusher for 3 years and was exposed to a large amount of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lupus Vulgaris

    Stain for acid-fast bacteria was negative. Cultures from the skin lesions were negative.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mycobacterial infection is increasing, partly due to emerging drug resistance and the HIV epidemic. [ 2 ] Non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are acid-fast bacteria, widespread[patient.info] No typical tuberculous follicles or acid-fast bacilli could be identified. Culture was negative for fungi, bacteria and acid-fast bacilli.[nature.com]

  • Spinal Tuberculosis

    BACKGROUND: Thoracic spinal tuberculosis (TST) is a dangerous disease. Besides antituberculosis chemotherapy, surgery is also necessary for treating TST. To date, no study has focused on the prognostic factors for recovery of patients after surgery for TST. METHODS: From 2001-2016, 237 patients who underwent[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
