Microorganisms are very diverse. Likewise, the diseases that they cause are just as diverse!
In this discussion, we will explore some of the microbes that cause human disease and the body systems they affect.
When a patient seeks health care because they are ill, they describe their symptoms to the health care worker, and the health care worker gathers objective signs of disease. Together, these lead us to a disease syndrome of one of the major body systems:
- Integumentary System and Eyes
- Nervous System
- Cardiovascular and Lymphatic Systems
- Respiratory System
- Digestive System
- Genitourinary System
This week, we will discuss some common human pathogens and the diseases they cause!
