Streptococcus Oralis

Streptococcus Mitis


Presentation

  • We present an interesting case of Streptococcus oralis endocarditis, presenting with infective discitis, in an edentulous patient with no underlying structural valvular heart disease and no clinical features to suggest infective endocarditis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The most abundant protein, phosphocarrier protein HPr, was present as three isoforms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The patient presented with fever, headache and vomiting. Pus cultures yielded S. oralis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A 55-day-old male infant presented with a multi-loculated Streptococcus oralis cerebral abscess following a monkey bite on the scalp.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We reported a case of an 8-year-old boy who was presented to the emergency department with left-sided hemiparesis. Computed tomography showed hypodense areas in the territory of the right middle cerebral artery, indicating acute cerebral infarct.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Fishing
  • Spatial distribution of microorganisms was visualized by confocal laser scanning microscopy of biofilms labeled by differential fluorescence or by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • KEYWORDS: FISH; coaggregation; human oral cavity; microbial communities; stomatitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The fish isolates classified as Streptococcus difficilis corrig. could represent a distinct marine variant of Streptococcus agalactiae.[bacterio.net]
Recurrent Otitis Media
  • The adenoids from 100 patients who were undergoing adenoidectomy for either hypertrophy or recurrent otitis media were used.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • METHODS: The adenoids from 10 patients who were undergoing adenoidectomy for either hypertrophy or recurrent otitis media were used.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Congestive Heart Failure
  • Platelet interaction with S. oralis leads to the development of a thrombotic vegetation on heart valves, which results in valvular incompetence and congestive heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The infections that progress to congestive heart failure resulting from recurring emboli often require surgery to replace the damaged valves. ViPrimePLUS Streptococcus mitis qPCR Kit is intended for research use only.[vivantechnologies.com]
  • CHD with left to right shunts may also predispose to brain abscess. [6] Predisposing condition for viridians streptococcal brain abscess include congestive heart failure, chronic otitis media, head injury with cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhoea, sinusectomy[ijmm.org]
Animal Bite
  • Although cerebral abscesses caused by animal bites have been reported, they are extremely rare in infants and have not been described following monkey bite.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Aspiration
  • There was a clinical response to antibiotic therapy and repeated surgical aspiration followed by a ventriculoperitoneal shunt. This is the first report of a patient with a brain abscess following a monkey bite.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Similarly, the risk of iatrogenic septic arthritis is likely to be greater with inoculation than aspiration alone.[mja.com.au]
  • Patient underwent right frontal bur hole procedure and around 20 ml of pus was aspirated. Pus was sent to the microbiology department for aerobic and anaerobic culture and Gram stain.[ijmm.org]
Thrombosis
  • CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest a model of interaction between S. oralis and platelets that leads to the formation of a stable septic vegetation on damaged heart valves. 2013 International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Abstract In the present study, the potential involvement of Streptococcus oralis in the aetiology of recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) was investigated using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Tooth Loss
  • Abstract The use of dental implants to treat tooth loss has increased rapidly over recent years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Epistaxis
  • […] allergic rhinoconjunctivitis Exclusion Criteria: concomitant presence of chronic pathologies, malformations of the respiratory tract and facial cranium, tumors, neurological diseases, metabolic pathologies, cystic fibrosis, immunodeficiencies, history of epistaxis[clinicaltrials.gov]
Headache
  • The patient presented with fever, headache and vomiting. Pus cultures yielded S. oralis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In view of the headache and vomiting, the patient was admitted and further investigated. A computerized tomography (CT) of the head showed intracerebral abscess involving right frontal lobe [Figure 1] .[ijmm.org]
  • Early in the postoperative monitoring the patient presented with headache and nausea; after several more symptoms presented the patient was given a lumbar puncture and was diagnosed with bacterial meningitis.[microbewiki.kenyon.edu]
