- Infectious disease.
Pathogenic bacteria contribute to other globally important diseases, such as pneumonia, which can be caused by bacteria such as Streptococcus and Pseudomonas, and foodborne illnesses, which can be caused by bacteria such as Shigella, Campylobacter, and Salmonella.Gram-negative bacterial infections include the following:
- Campylobacter infections.
- Cat-scratch disease.
- Escherichia coli (E. coli) infections.
- Haemophilus influenzae infections.
- Klebsiella infections.
- Legionnaires’ disease.
Examples of high G+C gram-positive bacteria that are human pathogens include Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which causes tuberculosis; M. leprae, which causes leprosy (Hansen’s disease); and Corynebacterium diphtheriae, which causes diphtheria.Heterotrophic bacteria are not indicators of pathogenic conditions but some of them like Pseudomonas is opportunists and can cause some infections in skin and lung and the other type like Aeromonas cause gastroenteritis (2–4).
What are 10 diseases caused by bacteria?
- strep throat.
- bacterial urinary tract infections (UTIs), often caused by coliform bacteria.
- bacterial food poisoning, often caused by E. coli, Salmonella, or Shigella.
- bacterial cellulitis, such as due to Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
- bacterial vaginosis.
What are four diseases caused by bacteria?
Common pathogenic bacteria and the types of bacterial diseases they cause include: Escherichia coli and Salmonella cause food poisoning. Helicobacter pylori cause gastritis and ulcers. Neisseria gonorrhoeae causes the sexually transmitted disease gonorrhea.
What are the diseases caused by viruses and bacteria?
Viruses cause familiar infectious diseases such as the common cold, flu and warts. They also cause severe illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, smallpox, and Ebola. Viruses are like hijackers. They invade living, normal cells and use those cells to multiply and produce other viruses like themselves.
