Diphtheria

Diphtheria is an infectious disease caused by the bacterium Corynebacterium diphtheriae. Its aetiology and pathogenesis have been discussed in detail. Clinical Presentation in infants demonstrates foul-smelling breath, profuse pus. In tonsillopharyngeal diphtheria, initially, anorexia, malaise, and pharyngitis are seen.

For treatment of staphylococcal toxic shock syndrome, antibiotic therapy with an anti-staphylococcal agent is carried out, also eradication of source of toxin production is done.

Tularaemia and Cat-Scratch Disease

This section is in-depth elaboration of tularaemia and cat-scratch disease. Tularaemia is caused by bacterium Francisella tularensis.
