69 Possible Causes for Gram-Positive Rods, Hemorrhagic Meningitis

  • Anthrax

    Bacillus anthracis, the causal agent in anthrax, is a Gram-positive rod. Humans can acquire anthrax by industrial exposure to infected animals or animal products.[] Although it is a rare case, we consider that the patients who have skin, respiratory and neurological systems might also have hemorrhagic meningitis.[] Anthrax is caused by Bacillus anthracis, a Gram-positive, rod-shaped, obligate pathogen.[]

  • Pulmonary Anthrax

    […] 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[] Up to half of patients developed hemorrhagic meningitis. In this second stage, cyanosis, and hypotension progressed rapidly; death sometimes occurred within hours” [2].[] […] stains Gram stain positive - spore forming rods Advertisement[]

  • Total Parenteral Nutrition

    positive cocci, Serratia marcescens as a delegate of gram negative rods, Bacillus cereus as a delegate of gram positive rods, and Candida albicans as a delegate of fungi[] We present a case of Malassezia furfur meningitis arising in a very low birth weight infant with chronic lung disease, necrotizing enterocolitis, and intraventricular hemorrhage[] […] stream infection outbreaks of Bacillus cereus via intravenous line were recently reported in Japan. 8 In the present study, therefore, Staphylococcus aureus as a delegate of gram[]

  • Listeria Meningitis

  • Strongyloides Stercoralis

    He was diagnosed with spontaneous gram negative rod (GNR) meningitis.[] Klebsiella meningitis, Clostridium difficile colitis, and herpes labialis, the patient eventually recovered.[] Blood and cerebrospinal fluid cultures from a lumbar puncture were both positive for Escherichia coli .[]

  • Gram Positive Septicemia

    Abstract The genus Corynebacterium comprises aerobic, nonsporing, gram-positive rods.[] meningitis Definition fatality: 100% symptoms: lots of edema, blood CSF (w/ gram ) "Cardinal's cap" appearance (lots of hemorrhage of leptomeninges) spreads: to CNS from[] 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[]

  • Bacteremia

    Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae is a facultative anaerobic Gram-positive rod that occurs widely in nature and is best known in veterinary medicine for causing swine erysipelas[] Neurological complications include cerebral infarctions, intracerebral or subarachnoid hemorrhage, meningitis, cerebritis, and encephalomalacia. 7.[] Bacillus cereus is a widely-distributed, gram-positive or variable, rod-shaped bacterium frequently considered a contaminant in clinical specimens.[]

  • Disseminated Aspergillosis

    rods; Streptococcus pneumoniae among Gram-positive cocci; and Pseudallescheria boydii among fungi. 2 Interestingly, several types of infections caused by Aspergillus were[] , meningitis and others.[] […] also bacterial infection, the chief pathogens of which include Aeromonas species, Burkholderia pseudomallei , Chromobacterium violaceum , and Pseudomonas aeruginosa , among Gram-negative[]

  • Meningococcal Meningitis

    Besides, 1(4.7%) sample revealed Gram-positive rods of L. monocytogenes while Gram-negative kidney-shaped N. meningitidis was found in 20(95.24%) samples.[] Meningococcal meningitis is a medical emergency. Diagnosis is made through examination of the CSF obtained via lumbar puncture .[] ) (hemorrhagic) (infantile) (membranous) (metastatic) (nonspecific) (pontine) (progressive) (simple) (spinal) (subacute) (sympathetic) (toxic) G03.9 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code[]

  • Klebsiella Pneumoniae

    Bacillus species Background: Bacillus species: 1] Bacillus anthracis 2] Bacillus cereus 3] Bacillus subtilis Bacillus species : Ubiquitous gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria[] The patient was initially diagnosed with acute residual tumor hemorrhage.[] Gram-Positive Rods Aerobic Gram-Positive Rods Bacillus anthracis/cereus/thuringiensis . These organisms differ mainly in the plasmids they contain.[]
