Streptococcus Sanguis


Presentation

Recurrent Oral Ulceration
  • Whereas significant anti-65-kDa heat shock protein and anti-S. sanguis ST3 antibodies were also found in sera from patients with rheumatoid arthritis and recurrent oral ulcers, the anti-S. sanguis KTH-1, KTH-2, and KTH-3 antibodies were confined to BS[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Arthritis
  • Septic arthritis may represent a direct invasion of joint space by various microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses and fungi.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Whereas significant anti-65-kDa heat shock protein and anti-S. sanguis ST3 antibodies were also found in sera from patients with rheumatoid arthritis and recurrent oral ulcers, the anti-S. sanguis KTH-1, KTH-2, and KTH-3 antibodies were confined to BS[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Photosensitivity
  • CONCLUSION: The development of a system for the lethal photosensitization of bacteria responsible for periodontal disease may be possible.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Headache
  • Her headaches and myalgias resolved. She became afebrile within 4 hours after linezolid was given and remained so for the remainder of her hospital course.[journals.lww.com]

Workup

  • This case contributes to a growing body of literature contending that unexplained streptococcal bacteraemia merits a thorough workup that may include relatively invasive procedures such as endoscopy.[casereports.bmj.com]

Treatment

  • These proteins, or the receptors to which they bind, may be therapeutic targets and may allow the development of adjunctive therapies to prevent endocardial damage during the often prolonged treatment of infective endocarditis with antibiotics.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • These platelet aggregation-associated proteins (PAAPs) are recovered in cell-free preparations obtained from cells of S. sanguis after 5 min of sonic or limited trypsin treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Neuraminidase treatment of P. gingivalis caused 98% reduction of adherence, whereas similar treatment of S. sanguis caused only a 2% loss.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The patient improved after treatment, including hearing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This rare occurrence suggests that vancomycin may not be a completely reliable antibiotic in the treatment of infections due to viridans species of the genus Streptococcus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Time to positivity of blood cultures (TTP) has relationship with bacterial blood concentration and could be related with prognosis. As there is scarce information about the...[connection.ebscohost.com]
  • Gastrointestinal lesions may be found at an earlier stage, potentially improving prognosis. Case presentation A 56-year-old man was admitted with a 1 week history of fevers, anorexia and night sweats in May 2006.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • In this study, the postantibiotic effect (PAE), postantibiotic sub-MIC (PASME) and sub-MIC effect (SME) of amoxicillin on oral streptococci, Streptococcus gordonii and Streptococcus sanguis, which are two of the major etiological agents in infective endocarditis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract To analyze the pathogenesis of Behçet's disease (BD), we investigated the immune response of peripheral blood T cell subsets from patients with BD to Streptococcus sanguis (S. sanguis) strain KTH-I, a bacteria suggested to be associated with the etiology[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract The etiology of Behcet's syndrome (BS) is unknown, but a number of streptococcal species have been implicated. A hypothesis was postulated that a shared antigen, such as a stress protein, might account for some of these findings.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • The computational methods scan the database to perform in silico prediction of chromosomal regions related to phenotypic and pathophysiological traits.[slideheaven.com]

Prevention

  • However, S. sanguis did not induce von Willebrand factor (vWF) binding to platelets; nor did the bacteria prevent ristocetin-induced platelet agglutination or vWF binding.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
