3 common causes of fungal eye infections candida sp. Fusarium Sp. Aspergillus Sp.
yeast fungi that can cause opportunistic infections especially in immune suppressed individuals. can grow on or in any eye structure candida sp.
is candida normally found on the skin and mucous membranes yes is normal flora of skin and mucous membranes but fulminanat infections are not normal
What are candida infections associated with when infecting the eye injection through eye surgery, hematogenous spread from other area of body, and low birth weight
What eye infection does candida typically cuase endophthalmitis
patient has white cotton ball lesions in vitreous that can often lead to permanent damage what are they likely infected with candida sp. caused endophthalmitis
what two fungi are histologically indistinguishable from each other and cause keratitis and less commonly endophthalmitis fusarium sp. and aspergillus sp.
patient has been doing a lot a yard work digging in the soil and working to build a new compost grove box. While shoveling they accidently flung some dirt into their eyes and now have keratitis what is the likely pathogen causing the infection. fusarium sp.- soil saprophyte feeds on dead organic matter. histologically would look just like aspergillus but history points to fusarium sp.
hyaline mold that is an opportunistic pathogen that can cause keratitis or endophthalmitis aspergillus sp.
what state do most pts have to be in to have a fungal eye infection fungal eye infections are rare and opportunistic infection patient is generally immunocompromised or been exoposed to conatminated equipment or solutions

how does acanthamoeba typically get in to infect the eye introduced via contaminated contact lens solution or home made saline solutions.
what s/sx does acanthamoeba keratitis have severe ocular pain, photophobia, stromal ring infiltrate
how can you distinguish infection from allergy allergy will itch but infections will typically be scratchy, burning, pain or foreign body sensation
why do you need to recognize and treat eye infections in neonates quickly to keep eye infection from spreading to brain meninges
which is more common duct obstruction or conjunctival infections in neonates most of the time eye discharge is from duct obstruction not infection. obstruction will be watery discharge with a white eye (not a red eye) and eyelid skin redness.

What are the estimates on number of URT infections that adults have and children have each year adults 2-3 viraul URTs a year child 3-8
how does a sinus infection progress typically URT infection block sinuses which allows bacteria in sinuses to grow and cause an infection rather than being cleared out by normal ciliary mucus clearance
How can one tell when a sinus infection has started on top of the rhinitis the mucus will generally change from clear and watery to mucoid (yellow/green)
What type of bacteria typically cause acute sinusitis and what bacteria take over in chronic sinusitis acute sinusitis started by aerobic bacteria if infection last >3 months it is chronic and you see more anaerobic bacteria
what fraction of sinusitis is actually polymicrobial 1/3
what are the most common causes of bacterial sinusitis in kids strep pneumoniae, H. Flu, Moraxella cararrhalis
what are the risk factors for getting rhinitis and sinusitis allergic rhinitis nasal trauma immune compromised/diabetic smoking (especially H. Flu) swimming/barotrauma nasal polyps cocaine abuse pseudomonas aeruginosa from nosocomial infection from nasal tubes and catheters
What is nasal vestibulitis bacterial infection of nasal passage hair follicle most likely staph aureus
what are nasal polyps yellowish boggy masses of hypertrophic mucosa (benign) can be caused by recurrent allergic rhinitis attacks and can cause blockage of ostia leading to bacterial sinusitis
how are fungal nasal infections divided invasive and noninvasive invasive will spread to CNS (rhizopus, mucor, absidia)

what is the condition that can arise from ineffective or lack of treatment for AOM chronic suppurative otitis media- marked by chronic inflamattion of middle ear and mastoid mucosa. TM is NOT intact and discharge (otorrhea) is present
This ear syndrome can be caused by proloned eustachian tube dysfunction causing a negative prssure to draw the flaccid protion of TM inward. Creates a sac that can lead to chronic infection and can typically lead to bone erosion cholesteatoma

what are the main pathogens of eye infections adenovirus, or STDs in neonates
what are the main pathogens of ear infections externa: P. Aeruginosa, S. Aureus Media: S. Pneumoniae, H. Flu, M. Cararrhalis
