Abstract:

The chapter explains the etiology of infectious diseases and presents observations on fastidious isolates (special bacteria). The observations are classified as microscopic, biochemical, colony morphology, and pigment observations. The chapter also lists various diseases and their etiologic agents in a table. It tabulates the top 10 notifiable infectious diseases in the United States published in the . To enable the execution of disk and MIC susceptibility tests, the chapter presents a list of organisms that have specific interpretive criteria available through CLSI Standards.

Can I Do a Disk Susceptibility Test on That Isolate? Organisms That Have Specific Interpretive Criteria Available through CLSI Standardsa

MH, Mueller-Hinton agar supplemented with Ca and Mg incubated in ambient air unless otherwise noted; HTM, test medium; GC, gonococcus; CNS, coagulase-negative staphylococci.

If the species of bacteria to be tested does not appear on this list, the disk test cannot be used for routine antimicrobial susceptibility testing because there are no interpretive criteria yet available for that organism.

Can I Do an MIC Susceptibility Test on That Isolate? Organisms That Have Specific Interpretive Criteria Available through CLSI Standards

If the species to be tested is not listed in this table, it does not have interpretive criteria available from CLSI. Other organisms may be tested by the MIC procedure, but only the MIC value may be reported, not “susceptible,” “intermediate,” or “resistant.”

CAMHB, cation-supplemented Mueller-Hinton broth incubated in ambient air unless otherwise noted; HTM, test medium; GC, gonococcus.
