Clinically, it causes cleavage of the middle epidermis, with fine sheets of skin peeling off to reveal moist red skin beneath. Healing is rapid and mortality low. The doctor must rule out a drug allergy, since this can present similarly and may result in death if the use of the offending drug is not halted. Figure 5-8 pons. It now appears that these tampons, when left in place for a long time, in some way stimulate Staphylococcus aureus to release the exotoxin TSST-1. This exotoxin penetrates the vaginal mucosa and is a potent stimulator of both tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and interleukin-1 (see page 15).
Diseases caused by direct organ invasion by Staphylococcus aureus. Visualize the Staph-wielding wizard. ) The pathology includes: 1) Pneumonia: Staphylococcus aureus is a rare but severe cause of community-acquired bacterial pneumonia. Pneumonia is more common in hospitalized patients. It usually follows a viral influenza (flu) upper respiratory illness, with abrupt onset of fever, chills, and lobar consolidation of the lung, with rapid destruction of the lung parenchyma, resulting in cavitations (holes in the lung).
Clostridium tetani (Tetanus) Clostridium tetani causes tetanus, a disease that classically follows a puncture wound by a rusty nail but can follow skin trauma by any object contaminated with spores. Clostridium tetani spores, which are commonly found in soil and animal feces, are deposited in the wound and can germinate as long as there is a localized anaerobic environment (necrotic tissue). From this location, Clostridium tetani releases its exotoxin, called tetanospasmin. The tetanus toxin ultimately causes a sustained contraction of skeletal muscles called tetany.
