The causative agent is Vibrio cholerae.

The transmission path is fec-or.

Pathogenesis. It does not have invasive sv-you. With the help of OA / gene - adhesion to the small intestine receptors, colonization of the mucosa, the production of enterotoxin - the irreversible activation of adenylate cyclase - continuous secretion - dehydration.

The incubation period is 2-3 days (up to 5 days).

Clinical picture.

It happens: 1) clinically manifested form, 2) vibrio-bearing.

The beginning is diarrhea. For 1 defecation - 300 ml or more.

Dehydration 1 tbsp.

Thirst, m.p. single vomiting, stool type "rice broth" (without feces).

Dehydration 2 tbsp.

Pale skin, acrocyanosis, dry mucous, stool 10 or more times a day, vomiting (may be repeated), instability of blood pressure, tachycardia, oliguria, m. short cramps, easily cupping rubbing.

Dehydration 3 tbsp.

Dryness of the skin, slime, change of voice to aphonia, cyanosis, marbling of the skin, s-m "glasses", sunken eyes, blood pressure up to 70 mm Hg, orthostat collapse, weak pulse, anuria, indomitable vomiting (fountain), stool 20 times per day, hemoconcentration, hypokalemia, hypochloraemia.

Dehydration 4 tbsp.

AD v below 60 mm Hg, pulse on the periphery is not determined, convulsions (up to the diaphragm), the development of acute renal failure.
This state is reversible!


Blood - eritri ^, lake ^ up to 20 thousand - re-t haemoconcentration, ESR ^

Urine is the density of ^.

Cal, vomiting - bact seeding.

Serology is not used.


1. Compulsory hospitalization.

2. Antibiotics - tetracycline, doxycycline for 5 days for 3-4 r / day, nitrofurans, fluoroquinolones, intetriks.

3. Rehydration. It is carried out in 2 stages - 1) replenishment of the vehicle at the time of the inspection (primary rehydr), 2) compensatory ejection. # 1) oral - special r-ry with glyc, drink at a speed of 1 l / h. 2) infusion - at 3-4 st.

Rules of discharge.

After 24-36 hours after the abolition of antibiotics - for 3 consecutive days the test feces - if all 3 samples are negative, examine the bile, if it is negative, then write it out. (8-10 days).

  1. Cholera El Tor (etiopathogenesis, clinical features of modern cholera)
    Etiology: Vibrio El Tor. Pathogenesis: see question 22.1. Features of the current cholera: 1) the possibility of prolonged vibrio-carrying and a large frequency of erased forms of the disease 2) greater resistance of the causative agent in the external environment in comparison with the classical version of the cholera vibrio. Clinic: see question 22.1 (erased and light
  2. Cholera
    Cholera is an acute intestinal disease caused by Vibrio cholerae (serotype 01), capable of producing enterotoxin. Cholera manifestations range from asymptomatic to extremely severe forms, when suddenly developing disease leads to hypovolemic shock, metabolic acidosis and, in untreated cases, death. Etiology. The causative agent of cholera is a short, slightly curved, mobile
    Cholera is an acute anthroponous intestinal infection caused by cholera vibrio and characterized by watery diarrhea followed by vomiting, development of dehydration, demineralization and acidosis. HISTORY. Even before our era, the characteristic signs of the disease were described, they were indicated for rapid spread and high lethality. In the early 19 th century, when
  4. Cholera
    Cholera is an acute infectious disease characterized by a lesion of the gastrointestinal tract and a violation of the water-electrolyte balance of the body. The disease is caused by a vibrio - a special microorganism, discovered in 1854 by the Italian pathologist F. Pachini in the contents of the intestines of those who died from cholera. In 1883, the famous German scientist and physician R. Koh, who worked specifically in the outbreaks of the epidemic
    Charles C. J. Carpenter (Charles C. /. Carpenter) Definition. Cholera is an acute disease that occurs as a result of colonization of the small intestine by cholera vibrios. The disease is characterized by epidemic spread and development in severe cases of massive diarrhea with a rapid loss of extracellular fluid and electrolytes. Etiology and epidemiology. Cholera vibrio - curved
  6. Cholera
    Cholera is an acute infectious disease that is caused by a cholera vibrio capable of producing an enterotoxin. The causative agents of cholera are stable in the external environment. The source of infection are patients with typical and atypical forms of cholera, releasing cholera vibrios with feces into the external environment. Dangerous in the acute period of the disease, vibrio-carriers, and also
    {foto7} Cholera (Latin cholera)? acute intestinal anthroponous infection caused by bacteria of the species Vibrio cholerae. Characterized by the fecal-oral mechanism of infection, small intestine lesions, watery diarrhea, vomiting, fastest loss of body fluids and electrolytes with the development of varying degrees of dehydration up to hypovolemic shock and death. "Classical" cholera
  8. Question 35. CHOLERA
    - Acute infectious disease characterized by toxic damage to the small intestine, development of severe gastroenteritis, violation of water-electrolyte metabolism and dehydration of the body. Refers to especially dangerous infections. Etiology. The causative agents of cholera are two microorganisms: the Koch cholera vibrio and the Vibrio El Tor. Vibrios are divided into three serological types: Otava type
  9. Cholera
    Cholera is a disease caused by the ingress of cholera bacteria into the small intestine. As a result of these bacteria begins intense diarrhea, which leads to dehydration of the body and violates its ionic equilibrium. See the article INTELLIGIOUS (PROBLEMS), with the addition that a person should stop considering himself evil, unbearable,
  10. Cholera
    It refers to especially dangerous acute infectious diseases and is characterized by a severe condition and dehydration of the body. The causative agent of cholera is the cholera vibrio. It can remain viable for a long time in various environmental objects. In milk and dairy products, the causative agent of cholera persists for 14 days, in boiled water up to 40 hours, in open water - up to
  11. When to suspect a disease with cholera
    The presence of cholera should be suspected when a child is over 5 years old or the adult develops severe dehydration due to acute watery diarrhea (usually accompanied by vomiting) or in any other patient over 2 years old with a diagnosis of acute watery diarrhea if information is received about cholera in of the given territory. Children of a younger age may also be
