EMERGING & RE-EMERGING INFECTIOUS DISEASES : EMERGING & RE-EMERGING INFECTIOUS DISEASES Emerging And Re-emerging Infectious Diseases : Emerging And Re-emerging Infectious Diseases EMERGING DISEASES: EMERGING DISEASES Emerging diseases are those whose incidence in humans has increased during the last two decades or which threaten to increase in the near future Also refers to Newly appearing infectious diseases Diseases that are spreading to new geographical areas RE-EMERGING DISEASES: RE-EMERGING DISEASES These are the diseases which were previously easily controlled by chemotherapy and antibiotics, but now they have developed antimicrobial resistance and are often appearing in epidemic form PowerPoint Presentation: Global eradication of small pox in 1977 Antibiotics, vaccines discovery PowerPoint Presentation: Led to optimism and a sense of complacency that infectious diseases as public health problems could be eradicated or eliminated PowerPoint Presentation: The spectrum of infectious diseases is changing rapidly in conjunction with dramatic socio-economic and ecological changes With in the past two decades , innovative research and improved diagnostic & detection methods have revealed a no.of previously unknown human pathogens Eg : H.pylori List of NIAID Emerging and Re-emerging diseases: List of NIAID Emerging and Re-emerging diseases Group I Group II Group III Pathogens newly recognized in past two decades Re-emerging pathogens Agents with Bioterrorism potential Eg; Acanthamebiasis,Hepatitis C,Hepatitis E,etc Eg; Enterovirus 71,Clostridium difficile,Streptococcus groupA,Staphylococcus aureus A B C Anthrax,Viral hemorrhagic fever,Clostridium botulinum toxin,etc Japanese encephalitis,Qfever,Typhus fever,Brucellosis SARS,Yellow fever,Chikungunya Examples of: Examples of Re-emerging pathogens Few examples of Emerging pathogens: Few examples of Emerging pathogens PROBLEM STATEMENT: PROBLEM STATEMENT PowerPoint Presentation: Emerging & Reemerging infections are one of the major causes of death – 25% About 15 million (>25%) of 57 million annual deaths worldwide are the direct result of infectious disease The burden of these infectious diseases fall on population rich nations PowerPoint Presentation: Direct economic impact of selected infectious disease outbreaks, 1990-2003 Heymann DL.

Characteristics of Aedes mosquito ? Life cycle of Aedes mosquito ? How the Aedes mosquito transmits disease ? Clinical manifestations of Dengue ? How to prevent the spread of disease ? PowerPoint Presentation: What is Dengue fever ? It is an illness caused by infection with a virus transmitted by Aedes mosquito. It is a self limiting disease . PowerPoint Presentation: Causative Virus Arbovirus , within this group Flavivirus Composed of ss RNA 4 serotypes (1,2,3&4) Each serotype provides specific lifetime immunity & short term cross immunity. PowerPoint Presentation: Epidemiology In India first outbreak of dengue was recorded in 1812 A double people heamorrhagic fever epidemic occurred in India for the first time in Calcutta between JULY 1963 & MARCH 1964 In New Delhi, outbreaks of Dengue fever reported in 1967, 1970, 1982 & 1996. PowerPoint Presentation: Characteristics of Aedes Mosquito Close-up of an Aedes mosquito One distinct physical feature – black and white stripes on its body and legs. Bites during the day. Lays its eggs in clean, stagnant water. PowerPoint Presentation: Stagnant water Pupae Larvae Eggs 1-2 days 4-5 days 2-3 days Life cycle of Aedes aegypti PowerPoint Presentation: How Do Aedes mosquito transmit diseases………. Virus is carried in its body. Mosquito bites and sucks blood containing the virus from an infected person. And passes the virus to healthy people when it bites them. PowerPoint Presentation: Clinical manifestations of Dengue…. Undifferentiated fever Classical Dengue fever Dengue haemorrhagic fever Dengue shock syndrome PowerPoint Presentation: Undifferentiated fever most common. Asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic. Classical Dengue fever BREAK BONE FEVER caused by atleast 4 serotypes can occur epidemically/ endemically. PowerPoint Presentation: Dengue haemorrhagic fever Severe form of Dengue fever. Infected with >1 Dengue virus. Severe illness due to double infection with Dengue viruses. Incubation Period : 4-6 days. Changes that determine the severity of disease Plasma leakage, Abnormal haemostasis, raising PCV value marked Thrombocytopenia PowerPoint Presentation: Example of a skin rash due to dengue fever Symptoms of dengue fever PowerPoint Presentation: Grade 1 Fever and nonspecific constitutional symptoms Positive tourniquet test is only hemorrhagic manifestation Grade 2 Grade 1 manifestations + spontaneous bleeding Grade 3 Signs of circulatory failure (rapid/weak pulse, narrow pulse pressure, hypotension, cold/clammy skin) Grade 4 Profound shock (undetectable pulse and BP) Four Grades of DHF PowerPoint Presentation: Dengue Shock Syndrome Severe form of DHF. PowerPoint Presentation: Clinical Evaluation PowerPoint Presentation: Clinical laboratory tests CBC—WBC, platelets, hematocrit Albumin Liver function tests Urine—check for microscopic hematuria Dengue-specific tests Virus isolation Serology Laboratory Tests: PowerPoint Presentation: If no hemorrhagic manifestations and well-hydrated, Patient can be sent home with instructions for " followup ”. If hemorrhagic manifestations or hydration status is borderline, the patient should be observed, either in an outpatient observation center or in the Hospital. If warning signs are present even without evidence of shock, or if DSS is present, the patient should be hospitalized TREATMENT PowerPoint Presentation: Absence of fever for 24 hours (without anti- fevertherapy ) and return of appetite. Visible improvement in clinical picture. Stable hematocrit 3 days after recovery from shock Platelets >50,000/mm³ No respiratory distress from pleural effusions/ ascites Indications for Hospital Discharge PowerPoint Presentation: How do we Prevent Dengue from Spreading………….. No licensed vaccine at here. We avoid Dengue, when we avoid mosquito bites. Prevent Aedes from Breeding . PowerPoint Presentation: Remove ALL sources of stagnant water. Deny the Aedes mosquito of any chance to breed. Prevent Aedes from Breeding! PowerPoint Presentation: Change water in vases on alternate days. Remove water from flowerpot plates on alternate days.

Spontaneous remission is common (usually within 10 days) Immunocompromised 50 or more stools per day Dehydration (fatigue, abdominal cramping, and nausea ). Lasts months or years. Common in AIDS patients LAB DIAGNOSIS: LAB DIAGNOSIS Microscopic exam Acid fast stain of stool sample Endoscopic biopsy of small intestine LIFE CYCLE: LIFE CYCLE Cryptosporidium lives and grows in variety of animals– geese to snakes to cows, sheep and pigs to humans Cryptosproridium completes its cycle in a single host . The Species of Crypto known to infect humans is Cryptosporidium Parvum. LIFE CYCLE: LIFE CYCLE Infectious agents are the OOCYSTS. In immunocompromised patients ID 50 is about 10 to 30 oocysts . Autoinfection takes place in 2 ways- > Merozoites attach to nearby epithelial cells and spread infection > thin walled oocysts excyst and continue to spread infection within the body.
