Paragonimus westermani is a species of fluke, or flatworm that is classified within the Platyhelminthes phylum. This species is abundant in South America and Asia and affects the lungs of humans and other hosts. It was first discovered in 1878 in Europe after two Bengal tigers died. In 1879, Ringer found this species in the lungs of a human. Manson and Erwin von Baelz identified the sputum and eggs separately in 1880, after which Manson asserted that a snail was most likely the worm's...
Wolbachia is a genus of bacteria which infects arthropod species, including a high proportion of insects (~60% of species). It is one of the world's most common parasitic microbes and possibly the most common reproductive parasite in biosphere. Studies have suggested that 25-70% of all insect species are estimated to be potential hosts. Marshall Hertig and Burt Wolbach first identified the bacterium in 1924 in a species of mosquito. Hertig described the genus as Wolbachia pipientis. Not...
Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a curved, rod-shaped, Gram-negative bacterium found in brackish saltwater, which, when ingested, causes gastrointestinal illness in humans. V. parahaemolyticus is oxidase positive, facultatively aerobic, and does not form spores. This species is motile, with a single, polar flagellum. Ingestion of raw or undercooked seafood is the most common cause of the acute gastroenteritis caused by V. parahaemolyticus. Infection can also occur from fecal-oral route as well...
Burkholderia cepacia complex (BCC), is a group of catalase-producing, non-lactose-fermenting Gram-negative bacteria composed of at least nine different species. It is an important human pathogen that often causes pneumonia in immunocompromised individuals with underlying lung disease. They are typically found in water and soil and can survive for prolonged periods in moist environments. Spread between people occurs often in hospitals, clinics, and camps. Infected hosts are often treated in...
Actinomyces israelii is a species of Actinomyces and is sometimes known as the "most misdiagnosed disease" since it is often confused with neoplasms. It is a colonizer of the vagina, colon, and mouth. Infection happens through breach of the mucosal barrier during various procedures, aspiration, or pathologies such as diverticulitis. The chronic phase is also known as the classic phase due to the acute, early phase being commonly missed by health care providers. It is characterized by slow...
