354 Possible Causes for Bacterial Pneumonia, Gram-Positive Rods

  • Listeriosis

    Structure and Classification Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae is a slender, Gram-positive rod similar to L monocytogenes.[] […] lis·te·ria \ li-ˈstir-ē-ə \ : any of a genus ( Listeria ) of small, gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria that do not form spores and have a tendency to grow in chains and that[] Etiology Pathogen : Listeria monocytogenes ; a gram-positive, catalase-positive, rod-shaped, facultative intracellular, motile bacterium Route of transmission Contaminated[]

  • Pulmonary Anthrax

    Klebsiella pneumoniae and Mycobacterium tuberculosis [9], [40].[] […] unexplained febrile illness or febrile death. rapid onset of severe sepsis not due to a predisposing illness, or respiratory failure with a widened mediastinum. severe sepsis with Gram-positive[] Pulmonary anthrax is a lower respiratory infection by the bacteria Bacillus anthracis (gram positive rods).[]

  • Klebsiella

    As you can probably surmise from its name, Klebsiella pneumoniae can cause bacterial pneumonia.[] General Properties: Gram negative Non-spore-forming rods Facultative anaerobes Catalase Test: Positive Oxidase Test: Negative Lactose fermenter (forms pink colored colonies[] Abbreviated from Wikipedia Klebsiella pneumoniae basic characteristics GRAM-NEGATIVE RODS NON-MOTILE NON-SPORE-FORMING CATALASE: POSITIVE OXIDASE: NEGATIVE FACULTATIVELY ANAEROBIC[]

  • Gram-Negative Pneumonia

    People who have a weakened immune system also have an increased risk for bacterial pneumonia.[] However, the gram stain showed, “small aggregates of both gram positive cocci and gram positive rods.”[] positive rods Bacillus anthracis Typical pneumonia, Anthrax, Wool-Sorters disease inhalation Associated with wool sorting, with animal handlers, and veterinarians.[]

  • Aspiration Pneumonia

    Bacterial pneumonia: When the aspiration of bacteria from oral areas causes pneumonia, it is called bacterial pneumonia.[] Gram staining of a purified colony revealed Gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria.[] Inpatient Management Patients with aspiration pneumonia, both chemical pneumonitis (chemical pneumonia) and bacterial pneumonia (bacterial pneumonia), need inpatient care[]

  • Anaerobic Bacterial Infection

    Identify the most common bacterial agents (to genus) involved in aspiration pneumonia.[] Fusobacterium spp. are often pale gram-negative spindle-shaped rods having pointed ends. Clostridium spp. are large gram-positive rods that form spores.[] Dental infection from an upper molar can spread into the maxillary sinus Chlamydia pneumoniae and Mycoplasma pneumoniae facts • Role in bacterial sinusitis is uncertain. •[]

  • Pseudomonas Infection

    pneumonia.[] Figure 1a Gram-stained Gram-positive Clostridium tetani bacteria, which had been cultivated on a blood agar plate.[] Bacterial pneumonia in recipients of bone marrow transplantation. A five-year prospective study. Transplantation 1995; 60 : 672–678. 5. Walter EA, Bowden RA.[]

  • Bacterial Tracheitis

    This chapter focuses on the childhood tracheotomy-related infections of stoma cellulitis, tracheitis, and bacterial pneumonia.[] Gram stains of the purulent secretions revealed many polymorphonuclear leukocytes with gram-positive cocci (3 patients) and small gram-negative rods (2 patients).[] Reported complications include pneumonia, pneumothorax, formation of pseudomembranes, toxic shock syndrome, and cardiopulmonary arrest.[]

  • Bacterial Infections

    Bacteria may also enter your body through your airway and cause infections like bacterial pneumonia.[] Bacteria come in three basic shapes: rod-shaped (bacilli), spherical (cocci), or helical (spirilla). Bacteria may also be classified as gram-positive or gram-negative.[] Bacterial Pneumonia Pneumonia simply refers to the inflammation of the lung, the alveoli in particular.[]

  • Streptococcus Pyogenes Pneumonia

    S. pyogenes accounts for 2-5% of cases of bacterial pneumonia in the early 20th century [ 3 ].[] positive rods Bacillus anthracis Typical pneumonia, Anthrax, Wool-Sorters disease inhalation Associated with wool sorting, with animal handlers, and veterinarians.[] […] stain and culture sputum cerebral spinal fluid blood Differential Other causes of meningitis N. meningitidis gram-negative diplococci L. monocytogenes gram-positive rods[]
