exfoliative toxin

18

During a stay in the hospital, an accident victim develops symptoms of bacteremia. A blood sample shows the presence of Gram-positive cocci in pairs. Lab tests determine that the bacteria are non hemolytic and bile salt tolerant. the bacteremia is likely due to

Enterococcus

19

Which of the following streptococci is associated with dental caries?

viridans streptococci

20

Anthrax, which means "charcoal" in Greek, derives its name from

the black eschars it produces on human skin.

21

Which of the following statements about Bacillus anthraces is FALSE?

it is primarily a disease of humans

22

Which of the following bacteria produce one of the most deadly bacterial toxins known?

Clostridium botulinum

23

Which of the following bacteria can cause life-threating pseudomembranous colitis?

Clostridium difficile

24

How does the toxin from Clostridium tetani produce its action?

The smaller polypeptide of its toxin can block the release of inhibitory neurotransmitters by inhibitory neurons in the CNS, causing simultaneous contraction of both muscles in an antagonistic pair.

25

Which of the following statements concerning tetanus is FALSE?

Its only source is from deep puncture wounds from rusty nails

26

Listeria virulence is directly related to its ability to

live within cells and thus avoid exposure to the immune system of its host

27

Which of the following bacteria divide by "snapping division" in which daughter cells remain attached in characteristic V-shapes?

Corynebacterium

28

Which of the following statements about diphtheria is FALSE?

its growth on Loeffler's medium is used for absolute diagnosis of the bacterium

29

Members of the genus Mycoplasma are pleomorphic and stain Gram-negative because they

lack cell walls

30

The pathogenicity of primary tuberculosis is due to the fact that the mycobacteria

prevent fusion of lysosomes with phagosomes

31

A sample of fluid from the lungs contains microbes that grow in filaments or clumps. the cells stain poorly in the Gram stain and are a pink-red when acid fast stained. the bacteria in the sample are

Mycobacterium species

32

Under what conditions does infection with Mycobacterium leprae develop into tuberculoid leprosy?

when the immune system develops a vigorous cell mediated response

33

The pus from an abscess in a patients jaw contains microbes that form yellowish grainy masses and appear filamentous under the microscope. Neither anti fungal medication nor a normal course of antibiotics has been effective in treating the infection. the abscess is likely the result of infection with

Actinomyces

34

What is the most common disease caused by Propionibacterium?

acne

35

Mycetoma, which is a painless long lasting infection characterized by swelling, pus production, and draining sores, is caused by

Nocardia

36

the skin lesions characteristic of cutaneous infections with Bacillus anthraces are

eschars

37

The soil bacterium Nocardia asteroids can establish opportunistic infections of the

skin, lungs, and central nervous system

38

Enterococcus faecalis bacteria can be distinguished from other gram positive cocci because enterococci

can grow in the presence of bile salts

39

Infections with Streptococcus progenies may progress to _____, characterized by a skin rash that peels after about a week and a bright red swollen tongue.

scarlatina

40

Increased sebum secretion can fuel the overgrowth of the opportunistic pathogen ______ in its normal habitat, leading to disease.

Propionibacterium acnes

41

Streptococcus pneumoniae is a leading cause of

otitis media

42

Mycoplasma pneumoiae causes respiratory disease by

attaching to, inhibiting, and ultimately killing the ciliated epithelial cells of the trachea.

43

Which of the following is a key diagnostic indicator of infection with Mycobacterium leprae?

loss of the sense of touch

44

Which of the following is NOT a feature of the pathogenesis of Clostridium perfringens?

inhibiting sensory neuron function

45

Which of the following bacteria can cause pharyngitis?

Streptococcus pyogenes

46

A summer cold that lasts for weeks and is characterized by sore throat, mild fever, dry cough, and malaise may be (pneumococcal/walking) pneumonia.

walking

47

the presence of mycelia acid in the cell walls of the opportunistic pathogen (Actinomyce/ Nocardia) results in it Gram staining poorly.

Nocardia

48

In its role in the development of acne, (propionibacterium/ staphylococcus/ actinomyces) typically grows in sebaceous glands of the skin.

Propionibacterium

49

(MRSA/ MDR-TB/ VRSA) is resistant to numerous antimicrobial agents; therefore, vancomycin is usually used for these infections.

MRSA

50

In countries where tuberculosis is common, people are vaccinated with (BCG/DOTS/ MDR-TB)which contains attenuated Mycobacterium bovis bacteria.

BCG

51

Infection with Corynebacterium diphtheriae leads to the formation of (pseudomembranes/ tubercles) which can severely impair respiratory function.

pseudomembranes

52

Successful treatment of diphtheria requires the administration of (antibiotics/antitoxin/ immunoglobulin).

antitoxin

53

Common sources of Listeria are undercooked meats and vegetables and unpasteurized (eggs/ milk/ juices).

milk

54

the neurotoxins of Clostridium botulinum produce (flaccid/ tetanic) paralysis by preventing muscle contraction.

flaccid

55

Bacterial food poisoning resulting from Clostridium (botulinum/ difficele/ perfringens) contamination is characterized by watery diarrhea accompanied by intestinal cramping but not fever, and it resolves in about a day.

perfringens

56

(Enterococcus/ Staphylococcus) grow at temperatures up to 45C, at pH levels as high as 9.6, and in 6.5% NaCl, but they lack structural and chemical elements that make them virulent in the intestinal tract.

Enterococcus

57

The aerobic endospore former (Clostridium perfringens/ Clostridium difficle/ Bacillus anthracis) is a strict pathogen of humans and animals.

Bacillus anthracis

58

The body limits the migration of Streptococcus (agalactiae/ pneumoniae/ progenies) by binding it to the active sties of secretory IgA, which the bacteria overcome by secreting secretory IgA protease.
