Langley 1 Michaela Langley Professor Cummings BIOL 2230­001 July 6, 2016 Case Study 1. What is the most likely causative organism? Why? If the 3­year­old child has not been vaccinated and her CSF fluid is presenting cloudy then we  see that she has an infection. From there her fluid was gram stained and presented with gram­ negative rods showing that whatever is causing the infection is gram­negative bacteria. There is  also growth on both the blood and chocolate agar plates that were inoculated. With this  information it is safe to say that Haemophilus influenza bacteria is the leading cause of her  bacterial meningitis. 2. Why was the child’s unvaccinated status helpful in diagnosis? Since the 3­year­old girl was not inoculated she did not receive the Hib conjugate vaccine which  protects against Haemophilus influenza disease, caused by bacteria, that causes bacterial  meningitis. This vaccine is routinely given in four doses between the age of 2 months and 12­15  months of age. Since the child never received this vaccination she is greatly susceptible to the  disease due to it usually affecting children under the age of 5. 3. What is causing the cloudiness of CSF? If Cerebrospinal fluid (CFS) is cloudy it is either an indicator that there is an infection or a  buildup of white blood cells or protein. In this case it would appear that there is an infection in  the fluid that is surrounding the brain and spinal cord. This is caused by the phagocytosis of the  Haemophilus influenza bacteria that is causing the bacterial meningitis.  Langley 2 4. What other types of infection can this organism cause in children?   Haemophilus influenza bacteria can also cause pneumonia, severe swelling in the throat, making it hard to breathe, infections of the blood, joints, bones, and covering of the heart, and death.
