Unformatted text preview: Microl:7iology 11- Page 1 No rmsNotes ParaeBitology lff Mycology "Microbiology II" meR 3205 Lecture Midterm Dr. S. Abghari In my humble opinion, this class is much easier than 5th quarter Microbiology- especially now that you have these notes. I hate to pat myself on the back like that, but its true. These notes combine Dr. Abghari's overheads and lecture with my English translation and explanation. I spent weeks and weeks perfecting these notes. If you don't pay for them then you suck and I hope you fail and end up selling shoes at Kinneys in five years because no-one wants a mendacious (look it up) chiropractor. 'Easy' doesn't mean 'no work'. You need to spend about 20 minutes a day reading these notes. If you read before class, then the lecture might make sense. There is a lot of material "'andthe names are all Latin. You can do it, but don't wait for the last minute. As the title of the course suggests, we are going to cover parasitology and mycology in this class. Mycology is the study of fungi, and most of that information (that last 1/3 of the course material) can be found in the syllabus. We spend the first 2/3 of the quarter studying parasites. MICROBIOLOGY 3205 - general course outline I. Parasitology (first 2/3 of the course) A. Protozoa- unicellular microscopic organisms NormsNoles Microl7iology " - P~e 2 B. Helminths- worms; multi-cellular, often visible to the naked eye c. Arthropoda- insects (lice etc.) Note: We do not study arthropoda (insects) in thiS course. The study of arthropoda is a separate course that we don't have time for. We will only discuss them in the sense that some of them, such as the anopheles mosquito, transmit certain parasites from animal to animal including humans. II. Mycology (last 1/3 of the course) - divided based on where the infections might occur on the body. Often this is related to the oxygen requirements of the particular fungus. For example, aerobs require high levels of oxygen and will be superficial. A. Superficial- corneum of the skin; surface of the hair B. Cutaneous- epidermis c. Subcutaneous- dermis, bone, vital organs (lungs) etc. D. Systemic- circulate throughout the body causing systemic type mYCOSIS. Note: If you ever get confused during the quarter as to what you are studying, look at the outline above. Note: Now I begin with Dr. Abghari's overheads and lectures. Don't worry, my explanations will come soon!---Overhead--- PARASITOLOGY A branch of microbiology that studies parasitism and parasitic organisms (eucaryotic cells). Eucaryotic cell Microbiology II - P~e :3 Importance of parasitology: Parasites and their diseases have been known since ancient time but the science of parasitology is a relatively young field~ W.H.O reports: 1. The most prevalent tropical diseases; 7 out of 8 are parasite....
