Heather received a BA in Biochemistry from Hood College in Frederick, MD, and a MS in Biotechnology from Johns Hopkins University. The ID Section is comprised of 8 infectious diseases specialists and is supported by a team of allied health professionals including nursing, pharmacy, and social work. The viruses that cause viral meningitis are contagious and are very common in the summer and early fall, but most people exposed to one of the viruses do not develop symptoms.

Unlike the other pathogenic organisms, prions do not contain any genetic material. Table 1 lists the numerical impacts of immigration on the major immigrant-receiving developed nations. About 90 percent of all viral meningitis cases involve a type of virus known as an enterovirus. Schistosomiasis - caused by parasitic trematode flatworm Schistosoma; fresh water snails act as intermediate host and release larval form of parasite that penetrates the skin of people exposed to contaminated water; worms mature and reproduce in the blood vessels, liver, kidneys, and intestines releasing eggs, which become trapped in tissues triggering an immune response; may manifest as either urinary or intestinal disease resulting in decreased work or learning capacity; mortality, while generally low, may occur in advanced cases usually due to bladder cancer; endemic in 74 developing countries with 80% of infected people living in sub-Saharan Africa; humans act as the reservoir for this parasite. aerosolized dust or soil contact disease acquired through inhalation of aerosols contaminated with rodent urine: Lassa fever - viral disease carried by rats of the genus Mastomys; endemic in portions of West Africa; infection occurs through direct contact with or consumption of food contaminated by rodent urine or fecal matter containing virus particles; fatality rate can reach 50% in epidemic outbreaks. respiratory disease acquired through close contact with an infectious person: Meningococcal meningitis - bacterial disease causing an inflammation of the lining of the brain and spinal cord; one of the most important bacterial pathogens is Neisseria meningitidis because of its potential to cause epidemics; symptoms include stiff neck, high fever, headaches, and vomiting; bacteria are transmitted from person to person by respiratory droplets and facilitated by close and prolonged contact resulting from crowded living conditions, often with a seasonal distribution; death occurs in 5-15% of cases, typically within 24-48 hours of onset of symptoms; highest burden of meningococcal disease occurs in the hyperendemic region of sub-Saharan Africa known as the "Meningitis Belt" which stretches from Senegal east to Ethiopia. animal contact disease acquired through direct contact with local animals: Rabies - viral disease of mammals usually transmitted through the bite of an infected animal, most commonly dogs; virus affects the central nervous system causing brain alteration and death; symptoms initially are non-specific fever and headache progressing to neurological symptoms; death occurs within days of the onset of symptoms.

Arthropod vectors can spread disease mechanically (as a result of contamination of their feet or passage of organisms through the gastrointestinal tract) or biologically (in which the agent must multiply or go through one or more stages of its life cycle before the arthropod becomes infective). Direct involvement of brain parenchyma can occur even in the absence of meningeal involvement. If a poliovirus infection is identified within a school or child care facility, the health authority may exclude a child inadequately immunized against polio from attending the child care facility or school. ���� 4.
