Bacterial (No Cell Wall!) INFECTION SITES -LRT -LRT -LRT -URT -Hyperacute & acute Bac. Conjunctivitis -Bac. Keratitis (SPK) -LRT -LRT CHARACTERISTICS -San Joachim Valley Fever -Get Ab instead of T-cell response -Tx: amphoterician B (cell memb. Disruptor) -Pneumonia, meningitis -children and immunosuppressed pts. -Capsule -Predisposed pts. -Transient Flora in URT and sinuses -Often indigenous spread from sinuses to acute site. -Likely to reoccur—scar tissue build-up -Vaccine w/ sugar water and protein -Similar to Strep. Pneumoniae -Species Associated, not species specific -Humans susceptible to infection, not to disease -T-cell response—granuloma -Skin Tests—Patch, Mantoux -PAP -Tx: tetracycline (Prot. Synth.
