1 JK Amorosa Flip - Flop TB R1

2 Tuberculosis Primary –selflimiting
Infection in patients previously not exposed to M tuberculosis (under age 5 in the past, now common in adults also) Postprimary-progressive Reactivation and reinfection

3 Chest X-ray is normal in TB in
50% 75% 15%

4 Manifestations of Primary TB are:
Parenchymal disease Lymphadenopathy Miliary disease Pleural Effusion

5 Manifestations of Postprimary TB are:
Upper lobe distribution Cavity Absence of adenopathy Airway involvement

6 Human disease causing mycobacteria are more likely:
Slow growing Fast growing

7 Mycobacteria – aerobic rods
Categories by disease cause: 1.tuberculosis complex: causes human disease 2.nontuberculous or atypical Categories by rate of growth: 1.rapid growing: < 7 days 2.slow growing:> 7 days Rapid: M.abscessus, M.fortiutum, M.chelonae Slow: MTB, MAC, M.Kansasii

8 Transmission Respiratory
Desiccated bacilli remain airborne for long time – indoor close many months contact is necessary for transmission Laryngeal, transbronchial, cavitary disease produce most bacilli Ventillation reduces infectiousness

14 TB mediastinal adenopathy is seen as part of
Reactivation TB HIV Primary TB usually in children

16 TB Lymphadenopathy Central low attenuation Active disease Necrosis
R hilar is most common

17 Pathogenesis TB bacilli in the body elicit acute inflammatory response – no symptoms Macrophages ingest bacilli and transport them to regional lymph nodes If not contained in local LNs, hematogenous dissemination of bacilli occurs and usually is contained, if not, then: miliary, meningeal, GU, MSK

22 Pleural Effusion TB

23 TB pleurisy Unilateral
Exudative: high protein content, High WBC, low glucose Lymphocyte predominance Complications: B-P fistula, empyema 1/3 negative TB skin test

24 Pleural Effusion exudative
Malignancy Pneumonia Tuberculosis Pulmonary embolism Fungal infection Pancreatic pseudocyst Intra-abdominal abscess After coronary artery bypass graft surgery Postcardiac injury syndrome Pericardial disease Meigs syndrome Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome Rheumatoid pleuritis Lupus erythematosus Drug-induced pleural disease Asbestos pleural effusion Yellow nail syndrome Uremia Trapped lung Chylothorax Pseudochylothorax Acute respiratory distress syndrome Chronic pleural thickening Malignant mesothelioma

25 Pleural Effusion transudate: <3 g protein, low WBC, normal glucose
Congestive heart failure (most common) Cirrhosis with hepatic hydrothorax Nephrotic syndrome Peritoneal dialysis/continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis Hypoproteinemia Glomerulonephritis Superior vena cava obstruction Fontan procedure Urinothorax CSF leak to the pleural space

Inhalation to lymphnodes to bloodstrean to meninges Inhalation to lymphnodes to meninges Ingestion to peritoneum to CSF Intravenous introduction to meninges

37 Cavity vs cyst vs bulla Cavity: Gas-filled space in an area of lung consolidation or mass or nodule produced by the expulsion of a necrotic part of the lesion via the bronchial tree; wall thickness varies Cyst: wall thickness is 4 mm or less Bulla: wall thickness < 4 mm Often difficult to distinguish the 3 Clin Microbiol Rev April; 21(2): 305–333

76 The History of Tuberculosis
The Hebrew word for phthisis or consumption (schachepheth) means to waste away occurs twice in the Bible: Leviticus 26:16 I, in turn, will do this to you: I will appoint over you a sudden terror, consumption and fever that will waste away the eyes and cause the soul to pine away; also you will sow your seed uselessly, for your enemies will eat it up. Deuteronomy 28:22 The Lord will smite you with consumption and with fever and with inflammation and with fiery heat and with the sword and with blight and with mildew and they will pursue you until you perish.

77 The History of Tuberculosis
By 1650 consumption was the leading cause of mortality and became a reference in some of Shakespeare's plays- one of the consumptive lovers, in "Much A Do About Nothing" , as well as scrofula in "Macbeth"

78 The History of Tuberculosis
Early attempts at treatment can be found throughout history Greeks believed cutting off cool air eventuated in a burning up of the tissues Romans put importance of diet Hebrews control disease from diet to the destruction of clothing Early "cures" from physicians Warm sea air Milk from pregnant women Seaweed placed under the pillow Cold baths Deep breathing

79 The History of Tuberculosis
The first breakthrough came when German bacteriologist named Robert Koch isolated the infectious agent known as tuberculosis bacteria or tubercle bacilli in He was later awarded the Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine in 1905

80 The History of Tuberculosis
The first sanatorium opened in 1854 in Gorbersdorf, Germany. Sick patients were given wholesome food and plenty of fresh air. This became the modern way to fight the disease. The sanatoriums provided medical care for almost 100 years and became one of the most remarkable and unique periods of medical care in history. By 1889 in the USA the National Tuberculosis Association fully realized that TB was distinctly preventable and not directly inherited No real progress was made until new antibiotics were used between It has taken almost three thousand years to understand the full nature of Tuberculosis
