MESOPHILIC AEROBIC FLORA
Its presence in the environment indicates the possible simultaneous presence of ecologically related pathogenic microorganisms, which is why it is often used as an index of environmental contamination.
This species is not as aggressive as others but in high concentrations it can produce aspergillosis, which causes pulmonary alterations.
Acinetobacter baumanii bacteria can survive for long periods of time in the hospital so many surfaces in contact with patients or healthcare personnel may be contaminated with it and can be a source of infection.
It causes urinary tract infections, pneumonias, sepsis, soft tissue infections and surgical wound infections. They are especially serious in patients in intensive care and neonates.
This opportunistic pathogen of immunocompromised individuals infects the lungs and respiratory tract, urinary tract, tissues and other sepsis. pyocyanin is a virulence factor of the bacterium and cystic fibrosis is also predisposed to infection of the lungs with this bacterium.
This species grows on any substrate and inhalation of its conidia can lead to various diseases, from asthma in atopic subjects to invasive infections in immunocompromised patients.
It is a bacterium that can cause diarrhea and more serious intestinal conditions such as colitis. People usually become infected when they are taking antibiotics because these not only kill harmful germs but also part of the intestinal flora that protects the body.
Among the most frequent pathologies caused by this fungus are fungal sinusitis, skin infection and non-invasive pneumonia. It can also cause naso-orbital corneal infections and disseminated disease.
