Leprosy [Hansen's disease] A30- >
Type 1 Excludes
sequelae of leprosy (B92)
infection due to Mycobacterium leprae
A bacterial granulomatous infection caused by mycobacterium
leprae. It is a progressive disease affecting the skin, peripheral
nerves, and limbs. If untreated, it causes permanent tissue damage
leading to autoamputations.
A chronic granulomatous infection caused by mycobacterium leprae.
The granulomatous lesions are manifested in the skin, the mucous
membranes, and the peripheral nerves. Two polar or principal types
are lepromatous and tuberculoid.
Chronic granulomatous infection caused by mycobacterium leprae;
granulomatous lesions are manifested in the skin, the mucous membranes,
and the peripheral nerves; two polar or principal types are lepromatous
Listeriosis A32- >
listerial foodborne infection
A bacterial infection caused by listeria monocytogenes. It occurs
in newborns, elderly, and immunocompromised patients. The bacteria
are transmitted through ingestion of contaminated food. Clinical
manifestations include fever, muscle pain, respiratory distress,
nausea, diarrhea, neck stiffness, irritability, seizures, and lethargy.
Gram positive bacterial infection with the genus listeria including
listeria meningitis which causes clinical manifestations including
fever, altered mentation, headache, meningeal signs, focal neurologic
signs, and seizures.
Infections with bacteria of the genus listeria.
Listeriosis is a foodborne illness caused by listeria monocytogenes,
bacteria found in soil and water. It can be in a variety of raw foods
as well as in processed foods and foods made from unpasteurized milk.
Listeria is unlike many other germs because it can grow even in the
cold temperature of the refrigerator. Symptoms include fever and chills,
headache, upset stomach and vomiting. Anyone can get the illness. But it
is most likely to affect pregnant women and unborn babies, older adults,
and people with weak immune systems. To reduce your risk
use precooked and ready-to-eat foods as soon as you can
avoid raw milk and raw milk products
heat ready-to-eat foods and leftovers until they are steaming hot
wash fresh fruits and vegetables
avoid rare meat and seafood
Other tetanus A35- >
A disease caused by tetanospasmin, a powerful protein toxin produced
by clostridium tetani. Tetanus usually occurs after an acute injury,
such as a puncture wound or laceration. Generalized tetanus, the most
common form, is characterized by tetanic muscular contractions and
hyperreflexia. Localized tetanus presents itself as a mild condition
with manifestations restricted to muscles near the wound. It may
progress to the generalized form.
A serious infectious disorder that follows wound contamination by
the gram-positive bacterium clostridium tetani. The bacteria produce
a neurotoxin called tetanospasmin, which causes muscle spasm in the
jaw and other anatomic sites.
Disease caused by tetanospasmin, a powerful protein toxin produced by
clostridium tetani; tetanus usually occurs after an acute injury, such
as a puncture wound or laceration; generalized tetanus, the most common
form, is characterized by tetanic muscular contractions and hyperreflexia;
localized tetanus presents itself as a mild condition with manifestations
restricted to muscles near the wound.
Tetanus is a serious illness caused by tetanus bacteria. The bacteria live
in soil, saliva, dust and manure. The bacteria usually enter the body through
a deep cut, like those you might get from cutting yourself with a knife or
stepping on a nail.the infection causes painful tightening of the muscles,
usually all over the body. It can lead to "locking" of the jaw, which makes
it impossible to open your mouth or swallow. If this happens, you could die
of suffocation.if you get tetanus, there is usually a long course of treatment.
The tetanus vaccine can prevent tetanus but its protection does not last forever.
Adults should get a tetanus shot, or booster, every 10 years. If you get a bad cut
or burn, see your doctor--you may need a booster.
Diphtheria A36- >
A gram-positive bacterial infection caused by corynebacterium diphtheria. It
usually involves the oral cavity, pharynx, and nasal cavity. Patients develop
pseudomembranes in the affected areas and manifest signs and symptoms of an upper
respiratory infection. The diphtheria toxin may cause myocarditis, polyneuritis,
and other systemic effects.
A localized infection of mucous membranes or skin caused by toxigenic strains of
corynebacterium diphtheriae. It is characterized by the presence of a pseudomembrane
at the site of infection. Diphtheria toxin, produced by c. Diphtheriae, can cause
myocarditis, polyneuritis, and other systemic toxic effects.
Diphtheria is a serious bacterial infection. You can catch it from a person who has
the infection and coughs or sneezes. It usually affects the nose and throat and causes
a bad sore throat, swollen glands, fever and chills. But if it is not properly diagnosed
and treated it produces a poison in the body that can cause serious complications such as
heart failure or paralysis.the diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus (dpt) vaccine can prevent
diphtheria, but its protection does not last forever. Adults should get another dose, or
booster, every 10 years. Diphtheria is very rare in the United States because of the vaccine.
Localized infection of mucous membranes or skin caused by toxigenic strains of
corynebacterium diphtheriae; it is characterized by the presence of a pseudomembrane
at the site of infection; diphtheria toxin, produced by c. Diphtheriae, can cause
myocarditis, polyneuritis, and other systemic toxic effects.
Whooping cough A37- >
Whooping cough is an infectious bacterial disease that causes uncontrollable coughing.
The name comes from the noise you make when you take a breath after you cough. You may
have choking spells or may cough so hard that you vomit. Anyone can get whooping cough,
but it is more common in infants and children. It's especially dangerous for infants.
The coughing spells can be so bad that it is hard for infants to eat, drink, or breathe.
To make a diagnosis, your doctor may do a physical exam, blood tests, chest x-rays,
or nose or throat cultures.before there was a vaccine, whooping cough was one of the
most common childhood diseases and a major cause of childhood deaths in the United
States Now most cases are prevented by vaccines. If you have whooping cough, treatment
with antibiotics may help if given early.
Scarlet fever A38- >
A streptococcal infection, mainly occuring among children, that is characterized by
a red skin rash, sore throat, and fever.
Infection with group a streptococci that is characterized by tonsillitis and
pharyngitis. An erythematous rash is commonly present.
Meningococcal infection A39- >
Infections with bacteria of the species neisseria meningitidis.
Meningococci are a type of bacteria that cause serious infections. The most frequent
is meningitis, which is an inflammation of the thin tissue that surrounds the brain
and spinal cord. Meningococci can also cause other problems, including a serious
bloodstream infection called sepsis.meningococcal infections can be spread from
person to person. They are common in people living in close quarters, such as college
students or military recruits.in its early stages, you may have flu-like symptoms and
a stiff neck. But the disease can progress quickly and can be fatal. Early diagnosis
and treatment are extremely important. Treatment is with antibiotics. Since the
infection spreads from person to person, family members may also need to be treated.a
vaccine can prevent meningococcal infections.

Actinomycosis A42- >
An infectious process caused by bacteria of the actinomyces species.
It is characterized by the formation of purulent and painful abscesses
in the mouth, lungs and gastrointestinal tract.
Infections with bacteria of the genus actinomyces.
Nocardiosis A43- >
Gram positive bacterial infection with bacteria of the genus nocardia.
Infections with bacteria of the genus nocardia.
Bartonellosis A44- >
A gram-negative bacterial infection caused by bartonella bacilliformis.
It is transmitted by ticks, flies and mosquitoes. Signs and symptoms
include fever, headache, muscle pain, enlargement of the lymph nodes
Infections by the genus bartonella. Bartonella bacilliformis can cause
acute febrile anemia, designated oroya fever, and a benign skin eruption,
called verruga peruana. Bartonella quintana causes trench fever, while
bartonella henselae is the etiologic agent of bacillary angiomatosis
(angiomatosis, bacillary) and is also one of the causes of cat-scratch
disease in immunocompetent patients.
Erysipelas A46- >
An acute infection of the skin caused by species of streptococcus.
This disease most frequently affects infants, young children, and the
elderly. Characteristics include pink-to-red lesions that spread rapidly
and are warm to the touch. The commonest site of involvement is the face.
Bacterial infection of unspecified site A49- >
An acute infectious disorder caused by gram positive or gram negative
bacteria. Representative examples include pneumococcal , streptococcal,
salmonella and meningeal infections.
Bacteria are living things that have only one cell. Under a microscope,
they look like balls, rods, or spirals. They are so small that a line of
1,000 could fit across a pencil eraser. Most bacteria won't hurt you -
less than 1 percent of the different types make people sick. Many are
helpful. Some bacteria help to digest food, destroy disease-causing cells,
and give the body needed vitamins. Bacteria are also used in making healthy
foods like yogurt and cheese.but infectious bacteria can make you ill.
They reproduce quickly in your body. Many give off chemicals called toxins,
which can damage tissue and make you sick. Examples of bacteria that cause
infections include streptococcus, staphylococcus, and e. Coli.antibiotics
are the usual treatment. When you take antibiotics, follow the directions
carefully. Each time you take antibiotics, you increase the chances that
bacteria in your body will learn to resist them. Later, you could get or
spread an infection that those antibiotics cannot cure.
Infections and associated diseases caused by bacteria, general or
Infections by bacteria, general or unspecified.
