The source of infection are patients with scarlet fever during the clinical manifestations of the disease and in the first 5-6 days after their disappearance.

    Scarlet fever is an acute infectious disease characterized by symptoms of general intoxication, tonsillitis, and skin rashes. The causative agent of scarlet fever is group A P-hemolytic streptococcus A. Streptococcus A has at least 3 types of effects on the body: 1) direct invasion of the tissue; 2) the effect of exotoxin; 3) immune-mediated mechanisms. Clinical picture
  4. Scarlet fever
    Scarlet fever is the only childhood infection caused not by viruses, but by bacteria. The causative agents of scarlet fever are toxigenic strains of? -Hemolytic streptococcus group A, i.e., strains of microorganisms that can produce exotoxin. This is an acute disease transmitted by airborne droplets. It is also possible infection through household items (toys, dishes). Early children and

    Scope of examination 1. Scarlet fever - streptococcal infection, accompanied by fever, tonsillitis, regional lymphadenitis and point exanthema. 2. The source of infection is a patient with scarlet fever from the first hours of the disease. The transmission path is airborne. 3. The incubation period has a duration of 1 to 12 days (usually 2-7 days), but sometimes it can be shortened to several

    (Saglet fever). Scarlet fever is a bacterial disease and is caused by streptococcus, which is capable of releasing erythrogenic toxin in relation to the skin. Fever. The body temperature on the second day of the disease reaches 40 C and does not decrease for a long time if antibiotics are not used. Rash. Small, tiny, punctate red macular and small papular (resembling goose bumps or sandpaper with
  7. Toxic forms of scarlet fever
    In toxic forms of scarlet fever, in the first 2 days of the disease, antitoxic antiscarlatine serum is administered intramuscularly at a dose of 40,000-60,000 ME. In the absence of serum, it is possible to use gammaglobulin at the rate of 0.5 - 1 ml / kg. Penicillin is prescribed at a dose of 50,000-100,000 IU / kg, administered every 4 hours. Active detoxification therapy is carried out, plasma and its are administered intravenously.

    Motivational characteristic of the topic. Knowledge of the topic materials is necessary for the successful assimilation of infections of children and adolescents in clinical departments. In the practical work of the doctor, it is necessary to conduct a clinical anatomical analysis of the manifestations of infectious pathology. The general purpose of the lesson. By morphological characteristics, learn to determine the causes and mechanisms of the development of infections of children and adolescents
  11. Bacterial airborne and intestinal infections
    Airborne infections include diphtheria, scarlet fever, and meningococcal infection. They have a number of common features: airborne transmission predominates; the entrance gate is the upper respiratory tract; all diseases are characterized by severe toxicosis; more often children are ill. The seasonality of the disease is characteristic (autumn winter period). Diphtheria - an acute infectious disease caused by
