SALMONELLA INFECTION Abdelaziz Elamin, MD, PhD, FRCPCH College of Medicine Sultan Qaboos University

Slide 2

INTRODUCTION Discovered in 1880 & named after Daniel Salmon, the pathologist who initially secluded the creature from porcine digestive tract. Salmonella is a motile, gram-negative, bar formed microbes , which is a main source of bacterial sustenance borne ailments. Of the 2000 strains perceived, human disease are brought on fundamentally by 5 serotypes, typhi, paratyphi, typhimurium, choleraesuis & enteritidis.

Slide 3

TRANSMISSION Infection takes after ingestion of defiled sustenance or water. Meat, poultry, eggs & journal items are successive sources. Pets, local creatures and contaminated human are potential stores. Individual to individual & creature to human transmission is perceived. In sound people a dosage of around one million microscopic organisms is important to create manifestations.

Slide 4

PATHOPHYSIOLOGY After ingestion salmonella must survive the stomach acidic PH & colonize small digestive system. Salmonella then append to & infiltrate the gut mucosa bringing about looseness of the bowels from direct mucosal harm & by activity of exotoxins. Another entryway of section is intrusion of lymphoid tissue in the GIT (peyer patches) & duplication inside of macrophages prompting bacteremia.

Slide 5

SALMONELLOSIS Salmonella commonly delivers 3 unmistakable disorders: sustenance harming, typhoid fever & asymptomatic transporter state. Salmonella gastroenteritis show as spewing & looseness of the bowels inside of 6-48 hours after ingestion of nourishment or beverage debased with microbes. It is self-restricting, treatment is by water & salts substitution. Anti-infection agents are not normally required.

Slide 6

MORTALITY & MORBIDITY Infection with nontyphoidal salmonella produces self-constraining gastroenteritis and sustenance harming. While mortality created by typhoid fever is uncommon in western nations, it is connected with critical mortality & grimness in tropical nations (10-30%). Lack of hydration is the most widely recognized entanglement of typhoid fever, yet genuine intestinal & additional intestinal intricacies may happen.

Slide 7

TYPHOID FEVER Typhoid fever is the most genuine salmonella disease with critical horribleness & mortality . Created by salmonella typhi & paratyphi. Brooding period is 1-2 weeks. Salmonella has physical (O antigen) & flagellar H antigen. The O antigen is more particular for serologic testing.

Slide 8

FREQUENCY An expected 15-30 million instances of typhoid fever happen universally every year. The illness is endemic in numerous creating nations in Asia, Central America & Africa. Episode of typhoid fever have been accounted for as of late from Eastern Europe. Frequency in Sudan is not precisely referred to, but rather assessed as 50 for every 100,000 individuals/year.

Slide 9

PRECIPITATING FACTORS Defects in cell intervened resistance (AIDS, Transplant patients & danger). Deformities in phagocytic capacity (jungle fever, histoplasmosis & schistosomiasis). Splenectomy or utilitarian asplenia (sickle cell dis) Low stomach PH ( patients on hostile to ulcer medication). Drawn out utilization of anti-toxins (changed gut greenery). Harmed gut boundary (gut sickness or surgery).

Slide 10

DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSES Cryptosporidiosis Campylobacter contamination Cyclospora Listeria monocytogenes Escherichia Coli disease Shigellosis

Slide 11

LAB FINDINGS Salmonella can be developed from blood or bone marrow in the first week, from stool in the 2 nd week & from pee in the 3 rd week. Extraordinary media are required for transport & for society. leukopenia is average however WBC may be typical. Widal test is not indicative, titer > 1:320 or 4 fold increment in titer bolster the determination.

Slide 12

CLINICAL PICTURE Symptoms start with sudden onset of high-review fever, cerebral pain & dry hack. Fever is swinging or may show step stepping stool design & understanding at first feel well & portable. Stomach torment & poisonous quality take after soon & before first week\'s over spleen is obvious & pink, discrete, skin rash shows up over the storage compartment. Blockage is more regular than looseness of the bowels which is generally greenish in shading (pea soup).

Slide 13

CLINICAL PICTURE/2 Abdominal delicacy & hepatomegaly happen in half of patients. The beat is moderately ease back in connection to fever (Paget sign). The tongue is covered with free edges & halitosis may be available. The sweat of a few patients smell like yeast.

Slide 14

CLINICAL PICTURE/3 The 3 rd week of ailment is the standard time for intricacies in the untreated patients. Nearby gut and also systemic inconveniences may happen. Genuine contaminations may advance quickly to languor & unconsciousness which is typically lethal (trance state vigil). Mortality is improbable after the 4 th week & patients may get to be bearer if not treated.

Slide 15

LOCAL COMPLICATIONS Intestinal discharge Intestinal aperture Paralytic ileus Zenker degeneration of stomach muscles

Slide 16

SYSTEMIC COMPLICATIONS Endocarditis Arteritis & blood vessel emboli Cholecystitis Hepatic & splenic abscesses Pneumonia or empyema Osteomyelitis & septic joint pain Meningitis Urinary tract disease

Slide 17

TREATMENT Medical consideration incorporate rehydration, antipyretics & anti-toxins. Medications of decision are Ceftriaxone & ciprofloxacin yet Cotrimoxazole & Chloramphenicol are still utilized as a part of creating nations. Ampicillin slaughters bacilli stowing away in the bile & consequently counteracts or decrease the transporter state. Constant safe bearer state may require cholecystectomy. Surgical consideration might likewise be required in patients with intestinal complexities.

Slide 18

NURSING CARE Isolation & boundary nursing is shown Notification of the case to the contamination control medical attendant in the doctor\'s facility. Follow wellspring of disease. keep breastfeeding newborn children & youthful youngsters and give ORS & light eating routine for different patients in the initial 48 hours.

Slide 19

PREVENTION Education on cleanliness practices like hand washing after can utilize & a voidance of eating in non hygienic eateries. Fitting taking care of & refrigeration of sustenance even subsequent to cooking. Salmonella TAB antibody is accessible however affectivity is low (half asserted insurance). Anti-microbial prophylaxis is not required for house-hold contacts.

Slide 20

PROGNOSIS With ahead of schedule analysis and brief treatment most patients with typhoid fever will recoup in due time. Fever & poisonous quality dies down inside 72 hours of anti-infection treatment. Mortality is > half in untreated extreme typhoid fever especially in kids & elderly. Recrudescence is uncommon however incessant bearer state is accounted for in 10% of patients.
