كل ميكروب يتحدث عن نفسه

 

 

 

Hello there!

 

You can call me S. aureus.

 

I am a Gram Positive cocci (round) bacteria.

 

I am also known as ‘golden staph’ because I form little yellow spots when I’m grown in a lab.

 

 

Sometimes I can be a special type called “Methicillin resistant S. aureus” (or MRSA) and it is VERY VERY hard to get rid of.

 

I live naturally in the noses and throats of many people.

 

 

I cause pus filled infections anywhere I can get into.

 

Specifically, I love skin, breasts, surgery or wounds, heart valves (endocarditis) and blood.

 

I am the most common cause of joint and bone infections.

 

I can also cause Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome or Staphylococcal toxic shock syndrome.

 

 

 

 

 

Hello, my name is N. meningitidis.

 

You can call me the meningococcus.

 

I am a Gram Negative cocci (round) bacteria.

 

I’m carried in the noses and mouths of 5-10% of people, but I don’t make them sick.

 

They can give me to other people by kissing and sharing drinks.

 

 

I have 13 different ‘serogroups’ – my most deadly groups are A, B, C and Y.

 

These can quickly kill healthy people.

 

 

Most of the time, I cause meningitis and a special purple rash made of bleeding in the skin.

 

I can also infect your blood.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello hello.

 

I’m N. gonorrhoeae.

 

I’m Gram Negative bacteria, but I’m not a rod.

 

I’m a coccus, which is a round bacteria, or sometimes two stuck together.

 

Most people call me ‘Gonococcus’.

 

 

I am spread by ***ual contact and I cause the STD called gonorrhoea.

 

I can give you urethrtis, pharyngitis and cervicitis – which can lead to infertility.

 

If I get into your blood I cause fever, skin lesions, arthritis and joint pain.

 

I can get into the eyes of infants when they’re born, if their mother is infected with me.

 

 

 

 

 

Hi!

 

My name is B. melitensis.

 

I’m a Gram Negative bacteria.

 

I am quite small.

 

I live in sheep and goats, but some of my cousins live in cows, pigs and dogs.

 

 

I cause a zoonotic infection called Brucellosis.

 

Zoonotic means people can only get me from animals.

 

I cause fever, headaches, mucle pain and even depression

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello.

 

You can call me B. pertussis.

 

I’m a Gram Negative bacteria.

 

I am spread to people by respiratory droplets.

 

I cause whooping cough, which can be highly fatal in infants.

 

 

How do I do this?

 

I get into the throat and make toxins.

 

First I give you a cough, then your throat swells up.

 

If it swells up enough, it can block your airway, giving your breathing a “whooping” sound

 

 

 

 

 

Hola. I’m C. jejuni.

 

I am a curved Gram Negative rod.

 

 

You can find me in lots of domestic animals.

 

I am part of the normal bacterial flora of poultry and cattle.

 

I get into people through dirty drinking water or under****ed meat, especialy chicken.

 

I cause food poisoning, with a self limiting bloody diarrhoea, abdominal cramps and fever

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello there.

 

You can call me H. pylori.

 

I am a helical Gram Negative rod.

 

I live in the mucous layer of the stomach.

 

 

I am famous for causing duodenal and gastric ulcers by making the stomach secrete lots of acid.

 

I am also a risk factor to some gastric cancers.

 

 

More than half the people in the world have me.

 

In 2005 two scientists from Perth, Western Australia – Robin Warren and

Barry Marshall – were given a Nobel prize for their work with me.

 

Marshall even drank a dish full of me to give himself stomach ulcers and prove their theories.

 

Before that, everyone thought stomach ulcers were caused by stress!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Howdy, my name is H. aegyptius.

 

I’m a Gram negative bacteria from the Haemophilus genus.

 

Some people consider me to be a special type of H. influenzae.

 

 

I cause conjunctivits, but what I really enjoy giving to people is Brazilian purpuric fever.

 

It causes fever, abdominal pain, vomiting and a purpuric rash.

 

It was very common in Brazilian children.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello, I’m H. ducreyi.

 

I’m a small, gram negative rod.

 

I am mostly found in developing countries.

 

 

I cause chancroid, a disease which is ***ually transmitted.

 

It has a soft chancre made of genital ulcers

 

Then I spread to your inguinal (groin) lymph nodes and enlarge them.

 

Sometimes they form abscesses.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello there.

 

My name is N. influenzae, just like my friend before me.

 

But we are very different.

 

I dont have a capsule like he does, so I can’t be typed into a group.

 

 

I am a small, Gram negative rod.

 

I can cause bronchitis, sinusitis and otitis media in the ear.

 

I can also cause pneumonia in the community.

 

Scientists used to think that I caused flu, but then realised that it was caused by a virus instead.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hi, my name is S. enteritidis.

 

I’m part of the enterobacteriaceae, from tribe 3, Salmonellae.

 

I’m a Gram negative bacteria.

 

 

When I have typhoidal strains people just call me S. typhi.

 

My typhoidal strains cause typhoid fever.

 

It’s a serious systemic disease you get when I invade through your intestines to you blood.

 

It can be fatal!

 

 

I have thousands of non-typhoidal strains as well.

 

It can infect you through food and water and cause self-limiting diarrhoea.

 

 

My cousins S. paratyphi causes paratyphoid fever (but I just think he’s copying me)

 

 

One of my most famous carriers is Typhoid Mary.

 

She was a **** and was quarantined until the day she died.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello.

 

My name is S. dysenteriae.

 

I’m a Gram negative bacteria in the Enterbacteriaceae family.

 

I’m also part of tribe I, Ecsherichiae.

 

My cousins S. flexneri, S. boydii, S. sonnei and I are all very close.

 

We all cause bacterial dysentery, a diarrhoea with blood and pus.

 

We can do this because we have Shiga toxin.

 

We can be transmitted on clothes and furniture.

 

 

I was all around in world war II and I killed King

 

Henry V!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hey, my name is E. coli.

 

I’m a Gram negative bacteria and I’m part of the enterbacteriaceae family.

 

In my family I am part of tribe I, Escherichieae.

 

My whole family is oxidase negative.

 

I live in the els.

 

 

My uropathic strains are the most common cause of urinary tract infection. For teh win!

 

Some of my strains have virulence factors, so I can cause diarrhoea.

 

The diarrhoea can watery or bloody, depending on which strain you have

 

 

 

 

Hi there, I’m V. vulnificus.

 

I’m a Gram negative, oxidase positive fermenter bacteria.

 

I’m the most virulent of the non-cholera Vibrios.

 

Like my cousins, I live in the ocean.

 

I can get into you on contaminated seafood, where I cross from your gut to your blood stream.

 

Then I can cause septicaemia and necrotic ulcers under the skin, with 50% mortality!

 

Don’t worry though, that’s only if you are immunocompromised or have liver disease.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hey there!

 

Call me V. parahaemolyticus, part of the Vibrio genus.

 

I’m a Gram negative, oxidase positive fermenter bacteria.

 

I live in salt water and you can get me by eating contaminated seafood.

 

 

I cause gastroenteritis with watery diarrhoea, cramps and fever.

 

Most of the time my infection is self-limiting.

 

 

I even appear in a comic!!
