The most likely cause for the symptoms is Fungus Coccidiodes. This disease is transmitted through inhalations of spores. It may be prevented by wearing a mask and limiting exposure to spores. A teenaged male in California complained of remittent fever, chills, and headaches. A blood smear revealed ring-shaped cells in his red blood cells. He was successfully treated with primaquine and chloroquine. The patient lives near the San Luis Rey River and has no history of foreign travel, blood transfusion, or intravenous drug use. What is the disease? How was it acquired? This disease is Malaria. It was acquired via the bite of a anopheles mosquito (that carries the infectious stage of Plasmodium). Chapter 13 A newborn female developed extensive vesicular and ulcerative lesions over her face and chest. What is the most likely cause of her symptoms? How would you determine the viral cause of this disease without doing a viral culture? Herpes simplex virus is most likely to be the cause of her symptoms. This could be determined by a serology or viral PCR. Chapter 14 Three days before a nurse developed meningococcemia, she assisted with intubation of a patient with a Neisseria meningitidis infection. Of the 24 medical personnel involved, only this nurse became ill. The nurse recalled that she was exposed to nasopharyngeal secretions and did not receive antibiotic prophylaxis. What two mistakes did the nurse make? How is meningitis transmitted? The two mistakes were: 1. She was exposed to nasopharyngeal secretions and did not receive the antibiotic prophylaxis. 2. She was not wearing a mask. Meningitis is transmitted by person-to-person. Such as via coughing, sneezing, kissing, sharing drinks, and alike things.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
