A 54-year-old man presents with complaints of shortness of breath, a sore tongue, and a "pins-and-needles" sensation in his feet. Laboratory examination revelas macrocytosis, anemia, and hypersegmented neutrophils. Antibodies to intrinsic factor
DR5
A 54-year-old man presents with complaints of shortness of breath, a sore tongue, and a "pins-and-needles" sensation in his feet. Laboratory examination revelas macrocytosis, anemia, and hypersegmented neutrophils. Antibodies to intrinsic factor
(Immunology General Principles, 34%): The disease with autoantibodies to intrinsic factor is pernicious anemia (atrophic gastritis and megaloblastic anemia secondary to vitamin B12 deficiency). Pernicious anemia is associated with the DR5 class II antigen (relative risk 5); DR5 is also associated with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. *DR2 is associated with Goodpasture syndrome, allergy, multiple sclerosis, and nacrolepsy. *DR3 is associated with celiac spure, Type 1 diabetes mellitus, and systemic lupus erythematosus. *DR4 IS ASSOCIATED WITH PEMPHIGUS VULGARIS, RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS, AND TYPE 1 DIABETES MELLITUS *DR7 is associated with steroid-responsive nephrotic syndrome.

A previously healthy 18-month-old girl is brought to the office with 2 days of irritability, poor appetite, and pulling at her left ear. She has no known allergies, and her vaccinations are up-to-date. On examination, the child's temperature is 102.8 F. S
polyribitol phosphate
A previously healthy 18-month-old girl is brought to the office with 2 days of irritability, poor appetite, and pulling at her left ear. She has no known allergies, and her vaccinations are up-to-date. On examination, the child's temperature is 102.8 F. S
 (Microbiology General Principles, 19%): This is most likely a case of Haemophilus influenzae otitis media. 95% of all cases of invasive disease (epiglotittis, meningitis) due to H. influenzae are caused by type b organisms that possess a polyribitol phosphate capsule. Otitis media is generally not caused by type b organisms. *beta-lactamase is an important pathogenic feature of Moraxella catarrhalis, which is another important cause of otitis media, but would not be an agent of epiglottitis or meningitis. *MY INCORRECT ANSWER: IGA PROTEASE IS PRODUCED BY STREPTOCOCCUS PNEUMONIAE AND NEISSERIA MENINGITIDIS. BOTH OF THESE CAUSE MENINGITIS, BUT NOT AS COMMONLY IN THIS AGE GROUP, AND WOULD NOT BE THE MOST COMMON CAUSES OF OTITIS MEDIA IN THIS CASE. *Lipopolysaccharide is present in all gram-negative bacteria and would not be a distinguishing feature between those that cause otitis media and epiglotitis. *Nonpilus adhesins are mediators of attachment to the epithelium and colonization of the oropharynx, but would not be a primary difference between the agents of otitis media and epiglottitis. *Pili also mediate attachment to the oropharynx, but would not be the major difference between the agents of otitis media and epiglottitis. *Pneumolysin is a cytotoxin produced by S. pneumoniae that destroys ciliated epithelial cells

A sexually active 18-year-old woman presents with a fever of 38.9 C (102 F) for the past 24 hours and lower abdominal pain and anorexia for the past 5 days. ON physical examination, there is generalized tenderness of the abdomen, and the cervix is erythem
Iodine-staining intraepithelial inclusion bodies
A sexually active 18-year-old woman presents with a fever of 38.9 C (102 F) for the past 24 hours and lower abdominal pain and anorexia for the past 5 days. ON physical examination, there is generalized tenderness of the abdomen, and the cervix is erythem
(Microbiology Reproductive, 27%): The presentation is typical for PID. Chlamydia trachomatis (serotypes D-K) is the most common bacterial cause of sexually transmitted disease in this country and is the most likely agent on the list to produce the symptoms described. It is an ATP-defective organism that must therefore live intracellularly in the human host and can be visualized inside epithelial cells with iodine, Giemsa, or fluorescent-antibody stains. The remainder of the answer choices refer to other agents that could be found in the female genital tract, either by sexual transmission or by contamination with fecal flora, but they are not the best choices. *A naked, icosahedral double-stranded circular DNA virus refers to human papilloma virus, which is the most common cause of STDs in the U.S., but presents with anogenital warts. *Intraneutrophilic gram-negative diplococci refers to Neisseria gonorrhoeae, which would be expected to prestn with dysuria and neutrophilic exudate. *Intranuclear inclusion bodies surrounded by halos ("owl's eyes") refers to cytomegalovirus, a common STD in the United States, but not a common agent of PID. Most cases in average adults are manifested by mononucleosis-like symptoms. *Lactose-fermenting gram-negative bacilli would be consistent with Escherichia coli. Although this organism is the most common cause of urinary tract infections in women in the United States, it would not be epected to cause PID. *Pear-shaped flagellated protozoa refers to the protozoan parasite Trichomonas vaginalis, the only protozoan STD in the world. Infection would be characterized by a malodorous, cheesy exudate, and there would be more erythema of the external genitalia than of the cervix. *Pleomorphic, gram-negative rods are consistent with Hemophilus ducreyi, which causes chancroid, and presents in a different manner. *SPIROCHETES ON DARK-FIELD MICROSCOPY REFERS TO TREPONEMA PALLIDKUM, THE CAUSATIVE AGENT OF SYPHILIS, WHICH WOULD PRODUCE RASH AND/OR CHANCRE, DEPENDING ON THE STAGE OF THE INFECTION.
A 29 year old Caucasian male experiences fever, fatigue, joint pain and urticaria-type skin rash. Once the symptoms start to abate a surge of serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) is noted. This patient is most likely s
Hepatitis B Viruse (DNA virus)
Why don't IgG against Hepatitis C virus confer effective immunity against infection?
IgG are direction against the envelope protein of the hepatitis C virus. Because of the remarkable viariety in antigenic structure, the production of host antibodies lags behind the production of new mutant strains of HCV and effective immunity against infection is not conferred.
