    • milk, urine, feces, vaginal mucus, or semen of infected animals not tick borne
  16. Diagnosis of Q fever
    Diagnosis is usually based on serology[13][14] (looking for an antibody response) rather than looking for the organism itself
  17. Treatment of Q ferevr

    • doxycycline, tetracycline, chloramphenicol, ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, and hydroxychloroquine.
  18. syptoms of Q fever
    • incubates 2 to 3 weeks
    • flu like, fever, profuse sweat, head ache myalgia
    • can progress to pneumonia
    • chronic is like inflammation and can affect the heart
  19. About Coxiella burnetii
    • Q fever
    • gram negative
    • spore in soil
    • has been used as a bio weapon

  27. tss by staphylococcus aureus
    high fever, accompanied by low blood pressure, malaise and confusion, which can rapidly progress to stupor, coma, and multi-organ failure.characteristic rash, often seen early in the course of illness, resembles a sunburn
  28. TSS by Streptococcus Pyogenes
    • no rash
    • pre existing skin wound
    • becomes painful then frogress into similar staphylococcus aureus symtoms but no rash
  29. Special Note about TSS
    • Super Antigen bypass antigen presenting and initiate non specific activation of tcells and mass cytokine rlease
    • In patients with TSS, up to 20% of the body's T cells can be activated at one time. This polyclonal T-cell population causes a cytokine storm, followed by a multisystem disease.
