Keywords: Staphylococcus aureus pneumonia
Early Staphylococcus aureus pneumonia is often not easy to recognize. Acute onset, rapid development of pneumonia symptoms of the disease may be considered. Such as the recent upper respiratory tract infection, skin Boil or lactating women suffering from mastitis history, can assist in the diagnosis.
Staphylococcus aureus pneumonia (staph ylococcus aureus pneumonia) is a pneumonia caused by Staphylococcus aureus (usually coagulase positive). Resistant Staphylococcus aureus strains increased significantly, due to the result of the misuse of antibiotics, Staphylococcus aureus infection also see an increase. The disease mostly concurrent aureus sepsis, more common in infants and newborns, older children may also occur. Common respiratory infections in winter and spring have a higher prevalence of the season. Often occur in hospitals or baby indoor cross-infection epidemic. Staphylococcus aureus can produce a variety of toxins and enzymes, such as hemolysin, staphylokinase, coagulation enzymes. Generally believed that coagulase and bacterial toxicity, such as coagulase-negative (such as Staphylococcus epidermidis) mostly opportunistic pathogen, rarely cause serious illness, but one of the common bacterial infection for the hospital. Penicillin G-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, has become the world’s problems, at home and abroad in the 1980s reported Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus, MRSA) has become a major pathogen of nosocomial infections.
The primary bronchial pneumonia caused by Staphylococcus aureus, extensive hemorrhagic necrosis, multiple small abscess its characteristics. Lung pleural surface is covered with a thick layer of cellulose purulent secretions. Abscess in Staphylococcus aureus, white blood cells, red blood cells and necrotic tissue debris. Subpleural abscess rupture, the formation of empyema, or pus. Sometimes erosion bronchial formation of bronchial fistula. Secondary to sepsis, in addition to lung abscess, other organs such as the subcutaneous tissue, bone marrow, heart, kidney, adrenal gland and brain can occur abscess.
