Diseases Caused By Mycobacterium Phlei
I have been in contact with laboratory-grown specimens of Mycobacterium phlei. I would like to know the symptoms just in case of. Thank you.
Atypical: Mycobacteria are unlikely to infect you thus symptoms "just in case" are impossible to predict! Hope this is helpful Dr Z
Is "mycobacterium tuberculosis " can cause kyphosis or scoliosis directly (without affecting the lungs)?!
Yes: It is possible to get tuberculosis of the spine which can cause significant damage and deformity. However, it usually has pain along with the infection. The TB germs may enter the body through the lungs but then be controlled there but circulate and cause their major damage outside the lungs sometime later.See 1 more doctor answer
Inflammation: Tb is an infection which can cause an inflammatory reaction and scar tissue can be the result of that process.
Hi sir, I have been diagnosed with mycobacterium tuberculosis of uterus, I am takng akurit-4 four tabs a day empty stomach, what's the cause of ths diseas?
TB: You have tuberculosis (TB) of the uterus. Tb is an infection caused by a bacterium called mycobacterium tuberculosis. It is usually acquired through the air by inhalation. It remains dormant in the body for years and then if there is a decrease in immunity it can cause an infection anywhere. In your case it is in the uterus.
You don't: The lab does, on special media. If you try it yourself, and you actually have somebody with active TB to grow it from, you'll generate a mass of nasty bacteria and if you don't know exactly what you are doing, you can make everybody around you very sick.
Not really: This bug is everywhere in our environment and only people with immune problems typically are affected/See 1 more doctor answer

Complex: Mtb is acquired thru respiratory route and replicates in the lung before asymptomatically disseminates to other organs. After about 6-8 weeks, the immune system starts to respond to the bug, walling the bacilli off in granulomas. Other than a positive skin test, 90% of people stay well. Of the rest, half will "reactivate" within 2 yrs and the others later sometimes due to immune suppression.
Complex: M. Avium- intracellulare (mac) infections can result in lung and other organ damage, depending on the severity of immunodeficiency. In people with an intact immune system, mac infection is a slow process and can take years before therapy is initiated (2 or 3 antibiotics- e.g. Ethambutol, cipro, (ciprofloxacin) and rifabutin). Therapy can last a minimum of 12 months if a lung infection is involved.See 1 more doctor answer
