       always the result of hypoxemia or hemorrhage associated with coughing or apnea 

      in young infants

15. apnea or bradycardia or both

       from apparent laryngospasm or vagal stimulation just before a coughing episode

       from obstruction during an episode

       from hypoxemia following an episode

16. lack of associated sign in some young infants with apnea

    : possibility of a primary effect of PT on CNS

17. seizure

    : usually result of hypoxemia

      hyponatremia from SIADH during pneumonia


Assessment And Supportive Care

           - stimulation of guanylate cyclase

                   --> increased cyclic GMP

    ; ST

           - related with enterotoxin by Y. enterocolitica

           - stimulation of adenylate cyclase   

                   --> increased cyclic AMP

# Fimbriae

    ; allow them to adhere tightly to intestinal epithelium

           --> effectively colonization and delivering toxin

# different colonization factor antigens (CFA)

  ; important in affecting the adherence of ETEC

  ; CFA, CFA, ,, CS7, CS17, 2230, 8786, PCF 09, PCF0148, PCF 0159, PCF 0166

      # toxin

         : blood stream 의해 peripheral cholinergic synapses

           -> irreversible bind

           -> acethylcholine release block

           -> impaired autonomic & neuromuscular transmission

   2. infant botulism

         -> spore germination, multiplication & production of B. toxin in the large intestine

         -> infectious ds.

   3. foodborne B.

       : preformed B. toxin 있는 음식물을 먹음으로서 생기는 intoxication

   4. wound B.

   1. 3 principles

        a. fatiguablity with repetitive activity

            : clinical hallmark

        b. Cx 있으므로 피하는 것이 좋다

        c. meticulous supportive care 필요



   2. 1st principle

        : feeding & breathing 적용됨


       1) correct position

          - to protect airway & improve resp. mechanics

          a. pt : placed face up on a rigid-bottomed crib( or bed)

                head -tilted at 30 degrees

            -> small cloth roll cervical vertebra 아래두고 head 뒤로 tilt시킴

            -> secretion drain to the post. pharynx & away from the airway

            -> abd. viscera pull the diaphragm down

            -> improve resp. mechanics

          b. pt's head : should not be elevated by bending the middle of the bed

                       hypotonic thorax -> slump into the abdomen

                                          -> compromised breathing


       2) endotracheal intubation

          a. airway potency 유지와 aspiration 피하기 위해 propylactic하게 사용

          b. PCO2 증가

              : alveolar hypoventilation & irreversible m. fatigue 의미

          c. 입원 환자의 1/2 intubation 필요

          d. tracheostomy : almost never required

              global faccid paralysis pt 에서 proper positioning

              -> permanent sequelae 없이 or 개월 동안 intubation tolerable

       3) feeding

          a. sufficient oropharyngeal strength & coordination으로 breast or bottle

             feeding 있을때까지 nasogastric or nasojejunal tube keep

          b. expressed breast milk

             : most desirable food

               - immunologic component (IgA, lactoferrin, leukocyte)

          c. tube feeding

            - restoration of peristalsis

            - nonspecific but essential part of eliminating C. botulinum from the intestinal flora

          d. intravenous feeding (hyperelementation)

             : potential of inf. & advantage of tube feeding

              -> discouraged


     3. antibiotics

        a. secondary inf. 사용

            : trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, nalidixic acid

              but aminoglycoside

               -> neuromuscular junction에서 B. toxin blocking action 증가시킴

        b. uncomplicate infant or foodborne botulism에는 사용하지 않는다

        c. wound botulism

            : Abc and antitoxin

     4. antitoxin

        a. horse-serum-derived product

        b. side effect

            - serum sickness

            - anaphylaxis

            - potential lifelong sensitization to equine protein


  5. a. sensation intact하므로 auditory, tactile & visual stimuli 시키는 것이 효과적

       b. maintaining strong central resp. drive is essential

            sedative or CNS depressant : CIx

       c. full hydration & stool softness

          : protracted constipation감소

          (cathartics : not recommend)

       d. B. toxin & organism : 3 동안 feces excretion되므로 주의 요함

       e. bladder atony

          : head support 하면서 sitting position으로 gentle suprapubic pressure 가함

           -> complete voiding & UTI risk 감소

    - resist decoloration with ethanol, hydrochloric acids

; slowly growth

    - generation time 12-24 hr

; isolation

Infection And Disease

; 인구의 1/3 20억이 M. tuberculosisinfected.

; southeast asia, india, china, africa, latine america common.

; prevalent 증가 : poor nutrition, overcrowding, inadequate health care, displacement.

; adult : 2/3 male, children : slightly female predorminant

; white: older age 많다.

; non-white

    - in young adults & children less than 5yr

; *5-14yrs - " favored age "

; drug resistant tuberculosis 증가

  - 14 %에서 최소한 한가지 약제에 resistant

  - 3 %에서 INH, RIF resistant

  - some countries에서 20-50 % 정도 resistant rate 보고됨.

  - major reasons : poor patients adherance to Tx, inadequate drug regimens.


; *person to person - mucus droplet nuclei, airborne.

    - rarely by direct contact

Transmission Chance 증가

    ; sputum Acid Fast smear (+)

    ; extensive upper lobe infilteration or cavity

    ; copious thin sputum production

    ; severe and forceful coughing      

; in most adults, chemotherapy 시작 2 wk후부터 no transmission

    - some patients remain for many weeks

; young children - rarely infect other children, adult

    - why ?

           / sparse bacilli in endobroncheal secretion

           / absent cough

           / lacks of tussive force required to suspend infectious particles of correct size

Pathogenesis and Immunity

# primary complex

    ; local infection at the portal of entry( 98%이상) & regional L/N

# bacilli 대부분은 killed, 그러나 nonactivated marcrophage 내의 일부는 lymphatic vessel 따라 regional L/N carry.

    ; lung primary infection 있다면 hilar L/N involve되고 focus upper lobe일때 paratracheal node drained된다.

  ; lung parenchyma, L/N 2-12wk tissue hypersensitivity developed된다.

# primary focus parenchmal portion

    ; caseous necrosis, encapsulation

           --> calcification, fibrosis

           --> complete healing

    ; sometimes focal pneumonitis, pleuritis

# L/N lesion

    ; *parenchymal lesion보다 less complete healing

    ; persist viable M. tuberculosis for decades

    ; attach bronchial wall

           --> endobronchial tuberculosis

    ; cesium

           --> complete obstruction of bronchus

           --> *collapse-consolidation or segmental lesion

# Disseminated Tuberculosis

    ; primary complex에서 blood, lymphatic vessel 통해

    ; circulatory bacilli 수가 많거나 host response inadequate할때 발생.

    ; *often early manifestation within 2-6month of infection

# clinically significant lymph node or endobroncheal Tb

    ; 3-9 month내에 발생.

# bone, joint Tb : 몇년후

# renal Tb : 10년이상.

# reactivation Tbc

    ; endogenous regrowth of bacilli persisting in partially encapsulated lesion

    ; *more than 1yr after primary infection

    ; *children에서는 rare.

    ; *common lesion

           - *apex of upper lobe

           - due to great oxygen tension, blood flow

# M. Tuberculosis infection disease 발현

  ; immunocompetent adult : 5-10 %

  ; infants : 40 %에서 1-2년내에 발생, children시기에 감소.

# extrapulmonary manifestation

    ; immunocompetent adult - 10 %내외

    ; children에서는 25-35 %

Pregnancy And Newborn

; congenital Tb. : rare

    - due to infertility of female genital Tbc

; congenital transmission

    - *transplacental transmission from placental lesion to umbilical vein

           / *common

         / more common in primary infection than reactivation

    - aspiration or ingestion of infected amniotic fluid

; Fetal Tuberculosis

    - first reach fetal liver : primaty focus with periportal LN

           -->         hematogenous spread

           --> many organ

; neonatal tuberculosis

    - *postnatal airborn transmission from adult

           / *common route


; Ab - play little role

# After infection

    ; *short period of uninhibited growth in both alveolar space & macrophge

           - sulfatides in mycobacteria inhibit fusion of macrophage phagosome & lysosome

    ; Cell Mediated Immunity

           - *4-8wk developed, 동시에 tissue hypersensitivity가시작.

           --> secretion of lymphokines and other mediators

           --> attract other lymphocytes & macrophages

           --> high concentration of lytic enzyme

           --> mycobactericidal effect

           --> prevention of initial infection progression

# Pathologic Event

    ; depend on mycobacterial antigen load & tissue hypersensitivity

    ; antigen load 작고 tissue sensitivity 높으면

           / lymphocyte, macrophage, fibroblast organization

                   --> granulation formation

    ; antigen load & tissue sensitivity 높으면

           / granulation formation less organized

                   --> incompletet issue necrosis --> caseous material formation.

    ; tissue sensitivity 낮다면(infant, immunocompromized pt)

           / infection diffuse, dissemination, local tissue destruction.

# Tissue necrosis factor, cytokines

    ; cellular destruction, tissue damage promoting.

# Tb 자체가 host immune response suppress한다.

    - 진단에 missed 가능성

; culture confirmation difficulty

; HIV-infected children에서 Tb more severe하고 disseminated.

; most common Sx

    - pulmonary Sx. with fever, wt. loss.

Perinatal Disease

; Sx. & sign 태어날 때도 있을 있지만 *more commonly 2 - 3 wk 나타남.

; Sx. & sign

   - respiratory distress, fever, hepatic,splenic megaly, poor feeding, lethalgy, irritability, lymphadenopathy, abdominal distension, failure to thrive, ear drainage, skin lesion.

; chest x-ray

    - *miliary pattern most often.

; Hilar, mediastinal lymphadenopathy, lung infilterate : common

; generalized lymphadenopathy, meningitis : 30 - 50 % (+)


; *maternal or family Hx - important clue

; infant's tuberculin skin test

    - initially negative --> 1 - 3 month 후에 positive.

; early morning gastric aspirates

; middle ear discharge, BM, tracheal aspirates, biopsy tissue

    - direct AFB stain

    - useful, performed

; CSF Ex. culture 균의 isolation 낮지만 시행해야 한다.

; congenital Tb 진단이 delayed되기 때문에 아직 mortality 높다.


Microbiologic Basis For Treatment

     Tubercle bacilli replication 동안에서만 killing 있다.

     naturally drug resistant organism frequency : 10-6

      S-M : 10-5  INH : 10-6   RIF : 10-8

   * 하나의 drug 대한 natural resistance 다른 drug independent하므로 INH               

    RIF 대해 resistance 일어 있는 chance 10-14

 * Antituberculosis chemotherapy 성공의 major biologic determinant host 내의

       bacillary population size이다.

 * cavity extensive infilterates large bacterial population 가진 경우에는 많은              

   naturally resistant organism 있으므로 최소한 두가지 이상의 antituberculosis drug 사용해야한다.

 * single drug 사용하는 경우

    i) infection ( reactive skin test ) 되었지만 disease 야기시키지 않는 경우

    ii) bacterial population 적은 경우

    iii) drug resistant organism rare 경우

 * primary pulmonary Tb, extrapulmonary Tb 가진 경우

   medium sized naturally drug resistant organism population 가지므로

   최소한 two drug therapy 시행 한다.


   i)  INH, RIF : highly bactericidal

   ii) SM, other aminoglycosides : extracelluar tubercle bacilli에는 bactericidal하지만 

                                macrophage penetration poor.

      iii) PZA : Laboratory에서는 bactericidal하지 못하지만 pt내에서는 M. tuberculosis killing 기여한다.
