1 Microbiology: A Systems Approach, 2 nd ed. Chapter 20: Infectious Diseases Affecting the Cardiovascular and Lymphatic Symptoms

2 20.1 The Cardiovascular and Lymphatic Systems and Their Defenses Cardiovascular System – Blood vessels and heart – Moves blood in a closed circuit – Also known as the circulatory system – Provides tissues with oxygen and nutrients and carries away carbon dioxide and waste products

3 The Heart Divided into two halves, each half divided into an upper and lower chamber Upper chambers: atria; lower chambers: ventricles Covered by the pericardium Three layers to the wall of the heart (from outer to inner) – Epicardium – Myocardium – Endocardium

4 Figure 20.1

5 Figure 20.2

6 Lymphatic System One-way passage Returns fluids from the tissues to the cardiovascular system

7 Figure 14.10

8 Defenses of the Cardiovascular and Lymphatic Systems Cardiovascular system is highly protected, however, if microbes do invade they gain access to every part of the body Bloodstream infections are systemic infections; often with the suffix –emia – Viremia – Fungemia – Bacteremia – Septicemia (can lead to septic shock) Defenses in the bloodstream- leukocytes

9 20.2 Normal Biota of the Cardiovascular and Lymphatic Systems None Some microorganisms may be present transiently (filtering out of tissues) but they do not colonize the systems in the healthy state

10

11 20.3 Cardiovascular and Lymphatic System Diseases Caused by Microorganisms Endocarditis – Inflammation of the endocardium – Usually refers to an infection of the valves of the heart – Acute and subacute, with similar symptoms (in subacute the symptoms develop more slowly and are less pronounced) – Fever, anemia, abnormal heartbeat – Sometimes symptoms similar to heart attack – Abdominal or side pain may be reported – Petechiae over the upper half of the body and under the fingernails may be present – In subacute cases, may have enlarged spleen

12 Figure 20.3

13

14 Septicemias Occurs when organisms are actively multiplying in the blood Many different bacteria and a few fungi can cause this condition Fever- prominent symptom Patient appears very ill, may have an altered mental state, shaking chills, and gastrointestinal symptoms Often exhibits increased breathing rate and respiratory alkalosis Low blood pressure

15

16 Plague Three possible manifestations – Pneumonic plague: respiratory disease – Bubonic plague Bacterium injected through a flea bite Enters the lymph and is filtered by a lymph node Infection causes inflammation and necrosis of the node Results in a swollen lesion called a bubo, usually in the groin or axilla Incubation period: 2 to 8 days, ending with the onset of fever, chills, headache, nausea, weakness, and tenderness of the bubo – Septicemic plague: when the case progresses to massive bacterial growth in the blood

21 Tularemia Sometimes called rabbit fever, because it has been associated with outbreaks of disease in wild rabbits Pathogen of concern on the lists of bioterrorism agents Tick bites: most frequent arthropod vector Incubation period of a few days to 3 weeks Symptoms: headache, backache, fever, chills, malaise, and weakness Further symptoms tied to the portal of entry: ulcerative skin lesions, swollen lymph glands, conjunctival inflammation, sore throat, intestinal disruption, pulmonary involvement

22

23 Lyme Disease Nonfatal Evolves into a slowly progressive syndrome that mimics neuromuscular and rheumatoid conditions Early symptom: rash a the site of a tick bite Other early symptoms: fever, headache, stiff neck, and dizziness Second stage: cardiac and neurological symptoms develop

29 Infectious Mononucleosis Majority caused by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) Most of the remainder caused by cytomegalovirus (CMV) Sore throat, high fever, and cervical lymphadenopathy Long incubation period- 30 to 50 days Also may exhibit a gray-white exudates in the throat, skin rash, and enlarged spleen and liver Sudden leukocytosis Fatigue

32 Hemorrhagic Fever Diseases Caused by viruses in one of four families: Arenaviridae Filoviridae Flaviviridae Bunyaviridae

33 Yellow Fever Capillary fragility Disrupts the blood-clotting system Begins with fever, headache, and muscle pain Sometimes progresses to oral hemorrhage, nosebleed, vomiting, jaundice, and liver and kidney damage

34 Dengue Fever Usually mild Sometimes it can progress to dengue hemorrhagic shock syndrome Causes severe pain in muscles and joints

35 Ebola and Marburg Related viruses, cause similar symptoms Extreme manifestations of of hemorrhagic events with extensive capillary fragility and disruption of clotting Patients bleed from their orifices, mucous membranes, and experience massive internal and external hemorrhage Often manifest a rash on the trunk in early stages

36 Lassa Fever Most cases asymptomatic In 20% of the cases a severe hemorrhagic syndrome develops Chest pain, hemorrhaging, sore throat, back pain, vomiting, diarrhea, and sometimes encephalitis Patients who recover often suffer from deafness

37

38 Nonhemorrhagic Fever Diseases Brucellosis – On the CDC list of possible bioterror agents – Bacteria is carried into the bloodstream by phagocytic cells, creating focal lesions in the liver, spleen, bone marrow, and kidney – Fluctuating pattern of fever accompanied by chills, profuse sweating, headache, muscle pain and weakness, and weight loss

39 Figure 20.12

40 Q Fever Abrupt onset of fever, chills, head and muscle ache, and occasionally a rash Sometimes complicated by pneumonitis, hepatitis, and endocarditis

41 Figure 20.13

42 Cat-Scratch Disease Symptoms start after 1 to 2 weeks Cluster of small papules at the site of inoculation In a few weeks, lymph nodes swell and can become pus-filled Only about 1/3 of patients experience high fever

43 Figure 20.14

44 Trench Fever Highly variable symptoms 5- to 6-day fever Leg pains, especially in the tibial region Headache, chills, and muscle aches Macular rash can occur Endocarditis can develop

45 HGA and HME Similar signs and symptoms Acute febrile state Headache, muscle pain, and rigors

46 Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF) 2 to 4 days incubation First symptoms: sustained fever, chills, headache, and muscular pain Distinctive spotted rash within 2 to 4 days after the prodrome In most severe untreated cases, enlarged lesions merge and become necrotic Other manifestations: cardiovascular disruption; conditions of restlessness, delirium, convulsions, tremor, and coma

50 Malaria The world’s dominant protozoan disease 10- to 16-day incubation period First symptoms: malaise, fatigue, vague aches, and nausea with or without diarrhea Next symptoms: bouts of chills, fever, and sweating Symptoms occur at 48- or 72-hour intervals The interval, length, and regularity of symptoms reflect the type of malaria

55 Anthrax Can exhibit its primary sumptoms in various locations of the body – Cutaneous anthrax – Pulmonary anthrax – Gastrointestinal tract – Anthrax meningitis Cutaneous and pulmonary forms most common

58 HIV Infection and AIDS Retrovirus: human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) – Hybrid virus- genetic sequences from two separate monkey SIVs The disease: acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) Spectrum of clinical disease associated with HIV infection Symptoms directly tied to two things: the level of virus in the blood and the level of T cells in the blood

59 Symptoms Initial infection: vague, mononucleosis-like symptoms that soon disappear (initial high levels of virus) – Within days, about 50% of the T helper cells with memory for the virus are destroyed Period of asymptomatic infection that varies in length from 2 to 15 years – During this period the number of T cells in the blood is steadily decreasing – Once T cells reach low enough levels, symptoms of AIDS ensue Initial symptoms of AIDS: fatigue, diarrhea, weight loss, and neurological changes

60 Other Symptoms as the Disease Progresses Opportunistic infections or neoplasms Severe immune deregulation, hormone imbalances, metabolic disturbances Pronounced wasting of body mass Protracted fever, fatigue, sore throat, and night sweats Lesions in the brain, meninges, spinal column, and peripheral nerves

69 Adult T-Cell Leukemia and Hairy-Cell Leukemia Leukemia: general name for at least four different malignant diseases of the WBC forming elements originating in the bone marrow Some acute, others chronic Many causes- two of which are thought to be viral – Adult T-cell leukemia by HTLV-I – Hairy-cell leukemia by HTLV-II Signs and symptoms include easy bruising or bleeding, paleness, fatigue, and recurring minor infections
