New cards
21
New cards

Herpes simplex virus I or II (virus)

-sexually transmitted -virulence: dsDNA gets into WBC -blisters/sores

New cards
22
New cards

HIV (virus)

-chronic -damage to the immune system -virus targets helper T cells -more sustainable to infections

New cards
23
New cards

Mumps (virus)

-respiratory droplets or through contact with contaminated saliva -fever, muscle pain, headache, pain with chewing, loss of appetite, fatigue, and weakness. -swollen salivary glands -virus can enter the bloodstream (viremia), allowing it to spread to the organs and the central nervous system. -The virus can be identified using culture or molecular techniques such as RT-PCR.

New cards
24
New cards

Poliovirus (virus)

-fecal oral or by aerosol or droplet transmission. -intestinal disease that, proceeds to the nervous system, causing paralysis and, potentially, death. -at the beginning: present in the throat and in the stool -later: invades local lymphoid tissue, enters the bloodstream, and then may infect cells of the CNS. -spinal cord, brain stem, or motor cortex results in cell destruction and leads to flaccid paralysis

New cards
25
New cards

Roseola

-saliva or respiratory secretions -runny nose, a sore throat, and a cough, along with a high fever -three to five days after the fever subsides, a rash may begin to appear on the chest and abdomen -flat or papules that are firm and slightly raised; some macules or papules may be surrounded by a white ring -serological tests to confirm the diagnosis
