428 Possible Causes for Gram-Positive Rods

  • Cytolytic Vaginosis

    […] called as cytolytic vaginosis.[ 3 ] LACTOBACILLI IN THE VAGINA Doderlein, first described the normal vaginal flora as, consisting of predominantly of the acid producing gram-positive[] Definition / general Presence of gram positive rods (lactobacilli) with cytolysis of intermediate cells Terminology Also known as bacillus vaginalis, bacillus Doderlein Epidemiology[] Historical Perspectives In 1892, Doderlein first identified the presence or absence of gram-positive rods in normal vaginal flora ( 16 ).[]

  • Erysipeloid

    Erysipeloid is a zoonotic infection caused by the gram-positive rod Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae .[] Visualization of thin, gram-positive rods is considered diagnostic, but gram stains and other cultivation methods frequently yield negative results.[] Erysipeloid is caused by the non–spore-forming, non–acid-fast, gram-positive rod microorganism, Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae (insidiosa), which long has been known to cause[]

  • Lactobacillus Infection

    Lactobacillus (L) [lak′tōbəsil′əs] Etymology: L, lac bacillum, small rod any one of a group of nonpathogenic gram-positive rod-shaped bacteria that produce lactic acid from[] Lactobacillus bacteria are Gram positive and rod shaped. See gram stain.[] L. acidophilus,L. brevis, L. buchneri, L. casei, L. fermentum, L. gallinarum, L. gasseri) Lactobacillus : Gram-positive facultative anaerobic or microaerophilic rod-shaped[]

  • Neurologic Manifestation of Whipple Disease

    positive rod shaped bacillus which is not acid fast.[] […] accompanied by disappearance of bacilli: recurrence of disease is accompanied by re-emergence of bacteria. 8 9 The morphology of the organism has been described. 10 It is a weakly gram[]

  • Listeria Meningitis

    Gram positive rod Beta hemolytic Catalase positive Motile at 25 degree centigrade (tumbling motility/umbrella motility) Non-spore forming rod Susceptible hosts Newborns Elderly[] An early presumptive diagnosis of Listeria infection may be possible with close attention to preliminary reports of Gram-positive rods.[] On the 4th hospital day, the culture of CSF grew short Gram-positive rods later identified as serotype 4b of L. monocytogenes which was susceptible to ampicillin, amikacin[]

  • 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[]

  • Diptheroid Bacillus

    Gram-positive rods which are potential pathogens are often identified by a stain other than the Gram stain (e.g., acid-fast stain for Mycobacterium and modified acid-fast[] BLOOD CULTURE GROWING A GRAM-POSITIVE ROD Bibliography A report from the laboratory that a blood culture contains a gram-positive rod suggests that the organism is a diphtheroid[] Initial microbiology reads that show mixed flora, including gram-positive rods and diphtheroid bacilli, are part of the normal flora of the skin.[]

  • Nocardia Infection

    Nocardia is a Gram-positive rod; however, the appearances on Gram staining can be misleading.[] Ribosomal DNA sequencing for identification of aerobic gram-positive rods in the clinical laboratory (an 18-month evaluation). J Clin Microbiol 41, 4134 –4140.[] , branched, beaded, Gram positive rods (9)(10).[]

  • Whipple Disease

    Etiology: Whipple’s disease is caused by infection with the gram-positive actinomycete Trophermyma whippelii.[] Intestinal or lymph node biopsy specimens may disclose periodic acid–Schiff staining deposits in macrophages, and electron microscopy may show rod-shaped bacilli.[]

  • Pulmonary Nocardiosis

    Gram-stained smears of sputum and pus from the abscess showing branched gram-positive rods led to a diagnosis of pulmonary nocardiosis with dissemination to the lungs and[] Gram staining was performed in 29 patients, and a characteristic Gram-positive rod was detected in 28 patients (96.6%).[]
