Escherichia Coli Infection

E Coli Infection


Presentation

  • To present a possible association between cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) and infection with Escherichia coli. Four neonates with deep CVT occurring during an E. coli infection are presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Fever
  • Probiotic treatment was associated with a larger increase in Bristol stool scale scores and more fever, headache and nausea after the ETEC challenge compared with the placebo treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • E. coli symptoms also may include vomiting and fever, although fever is an uncommon symptom.[about-ecoli.com]
  • Fever and vomiting may also occur. Most patients recover within 10 days, although in a few cases the disease may become life-threatening.[who.int]
Fatigue
  • Symptoms of infection include: Nausea or vomiting Severe abdominal cramps Watery or very bloody diarrhea Fatigue Fever To help avoid food poisoning and prevent infection, handle food safely.[wexnermedical.osu.edu]
  • Symptoms of infection include Nausea or vomiting Severe abdominal cramps Watery or very bloody diarrhea Fatigue Fever To help avoid food poisoning and prevent infection, handle food safely.[medlineplus.gov]
  • […] watery diarrhea, beginning a few hours after the pain begins bright red bloody stools around a day later, resulting from the toxin's damage to the intestines nausea and, in some cases, vomiting in some cases, fever, usually below 101 degrees Fahrenheit fatigue[medicalnewstoday.com]
  • As infection progresses, persons may experience fatigue, weakness, fainting, bruising, and paleness. Complications may occur leading to high blood pressure, seizures, blood-clotting problems, kidney disease, stroke, or coma.[health.ny.gov]
  • The clinical presentation of EIC consists of mild watery diarrhea, fatigue, malaise, fever and anorexia during the early stages of infection. This is followed by dehydration, abdominal cramps, tenesmus, stools with blood and mucus ( 102 ).[antimicrobe.org]
Anorexia
  • The clinical presentation of EIC consists of mild watery diarrhea, fatigue, malaise, fever and anorexia during the early stages of infection. This is followed by dehydration, abdominal cramps, tenesmus, stools with blood and mucus ( 102 ).[antimicrobe.org]
Rapidly Progressive Glomerulonephritis
  • At 1 month after recurrence, rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis with nephrotic syndrome was manifested. Renal biopsy findings were consistent with immunoglobulin A (IgA)-dominant postinfectious glomerulonephritis (PIGN).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Diarrhea
  • RESULTS: Prevalence of STEC infection was 4.1% among subjects presenting with watery diarrhea for 5 days' duration, bloody diarrhea for 36 hours' duration, or both.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Nausea
  • Probiotic treatment was associated with a larger increase in Bristol stool scale scores and more fever, headache and nausea after the ETEC challenge compared with the placebo treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Symptoms of infection include: Nausea or vomiting Severe abdominal cramps Watery or very bloody diarrhea Fatigue Fever To help avoid food poisoning and prevent infection, handle food safely.[wexnermedical.osu.edu]
  • Symptoms of infection include Nausea or vomiting Severe abdominal cramps Watery or very bloody diarrhea Fatigue Fever To help avoid food poisoning and prevent infection, handle food safely.[medlineplus.gov]
  • Some strains of E. coli infection can include nausea, vomiting, and fever.[medicalnewstoday.com]
Abdominal Pain
  • Patients presented with abdominal pain and diarrhea at 1, 3 and 7 years after living-related renal transplantation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, some types can cause illness in humans, including diarrhea, abdominal pain, fever, and sometimes vomiting. E. coli O157:H7 is one of the strains, and produces a toxin known as Shiga.[medicalnewstoday.com]
  • Call Your Doctor if You Have No improvement in symptoms after 2 days blood in stool Severe Vomiting Severe abdominal pain Signs of dehydration Preventing E. Coli Infections Cook meats well, especially ground beef, to prevent transmission of E coli.[sgihealth.com]
Hemorrhagic Diarrhea
  • A 49-year-old healthy Japanese woman presented with hemorrhagic diarrhea because of Shiga toxin producing Escherichia coli infection, and then hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) developed in the patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This organism may cause septicemia, neonatal meningitis, infantile gastroenteritis, tourist diarrhea, and hemorrhagic diarrhea. An E. coli infection may also arise due to environmental exposure.[encyclopedia.com]

Treatment

  • For the first time, stx expression was followed in human colonic environment: at 9 and 12 h post EHEC infection, probiotic treatment significantly decreased stx mRNA levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Knowledge of the long-term prognosis of acute toxigenic E. coli ingestion, based on the presentation of acute illness, is important for patient counseling and follow-up.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Prognosis In most cases of O157:H7, symptoms last for about a week and recovery is often spontaneous. Ten percent of individuals with E. coli O157:H7 infection develop HUS; 5% of those will die of the disease.[encyclopedia.com]

Etiology

  • METHODS: We performed a prospective study to determine the etiology of diarrheal illness among patients and control subjects of all ages presenting to the emergency departments and outpatient clinics of 2 large academic hospitals in Baltimore, Maryland[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] latent UPEC infection, suggest that deficiency in a key autophagy protein can be protective against infection in an animal model of one of the most common diseases of women worldwide, and may have significant clinical implications for understanding the etiology[pnas.org]
  • Introduction Enteroaggregative Escherichia coli has been recognized as an etiologic agent of acute and persistent diarrhea among children, travelers, and in human immunodeficiency virus-infected persons (7).[asmscience.org]
  • Epidemiology of E. coli O157:H7 The disease etiology is universal and can be foodborne or environmental amongst others.[ehagroup.com]

Epidemiology

  • CONCLUSION: The study provides wide epidemiological data and enables more effective infection control and treatment plans.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Age distribution

Pathophysiology

  • Whether alteration in SERT activity contributes to the pathophysiology of diarrhea induced by the food-borne pathogen enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) is not known.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Several types of aggregative fimbrial adhesins and enterotoxins play important roles in the pathophysiology of the disease.[antimicrobe.org]
