Case Study #2 The Fatal Flu 1) The cause of this seemingly fatal flu can be either Bacterial or Viral. The bacteria that could be responsible for pneumonia-like illness observed are Haemophilus influenzae, Legionella pneumophilla, Moraxella catarrhalis, Psuedomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus, and Streptococcus pneumoniae. The viruses that could be responsible for the pneumonia-like illness observed are the Human Adenovirus, Human Coronavirus, Influenza A Virus, Human Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), and the Rhinovirus. 2a) Of the pathogens listed above only the bacteria will be seen. The Gram(+) bacteria will show up dark purple, such as Staphylococcus and Streptococcus pneumoniae , where as the other Gram(-) bacteria will be a light pink color in the Gram stain. 2b) Staphylococcus is seen in patient 1, as well as in patient 3. Streptococcus pneumoniae and the Gram(-) bacteria can be ruled out as causes, as no Gram(-) bacteria or chains of the Streptococcus pneumoniae were seen in any of the patients.
