clostridium difficile (pseudomembranous enterocolitis)
because of clostridium it becomes difficult to treat patients with antibiotics (opportunist). An alligator (gatorade) driving a van (vancomycin) and metro (metronidazole) goes down the intestine. He litters by throwing his diary (diarrhea) out the window and pages shed out (pseudomembrane). This disturbs a bunch of bumble bee (toxin B) which swarm and break a skeleton (disrupts cytoskeleton). The skeleton turns into a (toxin A) da kine (cytokines increased) but and alcohol (fluids lost). A man drinks and eats them a runs a quarter mile (1/4 of the time relapse) lap.
clostridium tetanus
a tent (tetanus) with animals (reservoir) eating soil (reservoir). They are pooping the ABC's (A-B toxin) which lands on the feet of two G's (glycine and gaba). They stab the animals with a pen (penicillin) that talks (toxin).
clostridium botulinum
a robot (BOTulinum) eating canned food (transmission) and honey (transmission) but can't swallow them (symptom) because he has a thousand cotton balls in his mouth (dry mouth). A swallow flies into a window because it has double vision (symptom). Its eyes have wide pupils (symptoms). The pupils talk (antitoxin) too much.
clostridium perfringens, novyi, speticum
perfringens perforates a gangrenous leg. The leg farts a smelly (foul smelling) black (black wound) gas. A "less than thin" (lecthinase) surgeon (surgical intervention) stands over it with a gentle (gentamycin for anaerobes) pen (penicillin) instead of a scapel. The pen is actually a pipe used to smoke THC (DHC dnase, hyalluronase, collagenase). This is what a dirty (soil) hobo (transient colonizer) does in the GI of animals and humans.
bacillus anthracis
ants (anthrax) surround a man (protective factor). The man has a wide chest (widened mediastinum) which is equipped with guns (lethal factor). The guns shoot flowers (fluoroquinolones). The flowers have vaccums attached to them (vaccine).
actinomyces israeli
jews (israeli) are sitting in a mouth where teeth should be. They are wearing yamikas shaped like flowers (normal mouth flora). Dr. bellinger (dental disease or procedures) where's a yamika. He is holding hands with Wayne (large cheek abscesses). Wayne is holding a video game controller with a cord made of yellow diamonds that stink (yellow sulfur granules). He's playing mario brothers (abscesses must be surgically drained). The mario brothers are collecting pens (penicillin) instead of coines (jews collect coins, israeli).
nocardia asteroides
an asteroid (asteroides) is in an ICU bed (immunocompromised). He's holding a teddybear (similar to TB). He has soil (reservoir) as skin (cellulitis, abscesses, ulcerative, mycetomas (painless swelling)). Racing down the soil is a fast car shaped like an erlymer fask (acid fast). It runs over 3 meth heads (trimethoprim).
listeria monocytogenes
grocery list (listeria). Mother and daughter holding the grocery list. Mother and daughter kissing men (meningitis). The daughter has a "bort" licencse plate (abortion). She throws it at a refrigerator (grows at 4 degrees celcius). The refrigerator contains Blue (beta hemolytic) and green colored (colony colors) cold cuts (transmission). One of the coldcuts cracks a humorous joke (escapes humoral immunity) and a gentleman (gentamycin) with an humongous amplifier laughs (amplicillin).
cornyebacterium diptheriae
corn (cornyebacterium) is lodged in the throat (sore throat) of an African boy (endemic to 3rd world). He is shipped for slavery to the Carribean (skin version in tropical climates) and now has a flower (normal throat flora) in his throat. The flower has black spots (ulcers) on it. Because the spots are black they play football and block (block protein synthesis) Elfs (E2F). The elf's are from a dark place with no light called teleride (black colonies on teleride plate). They have Elk (ELEK test) there. The Elk are on ski lifts and throw (erythromycin) pens (penicillin) at mice.
enterococcus faecalis
poop (enterococcus faecalis) is sitting in an ICU bed (nosocomia, debilitated patients). Flowers (normal flora) are growing out of poop. Standing on the flowers is a tiny cat (catheter). The cat has a heart (endocarditis) where his stomach (abdominal abscess) should be. The heart is green (bile esculin agar). It is juggling three plates (alpha beta gamma hemolytic) with three different colors. the plates are made by domino (aminoglycosides) lactating (beta lactams) women. the women are wearing lizards (linezolid) on there head. the lizards are eating poop (enterococcus faecalis).
