Dysentery is a serious condition affecting the large intestine. The pathological condition of this disease is caused by two organisms, protozoa and bacilli. When caused by the former, the condition is generally known as amoebic dysentery, and when caused by the latter, it is known as bacillary dysentery. Causes and Symptoms. The background. This is an attempt to recall and set down briefly my recollections of the studies of the use of sulphonamides in bacillary dysentery which I made in and during my service in the Royal Army Medical Corps in Egypt (Scadding ; Scadding ; Fletcher and Scadding ).I end with a note on the relevance of this experience to my membership of the MRC Streptomycin.

(4), London, His Majesty's Stationery Office, Bacillary dysentery or shigellosis is causing sickness nationwide, with month-old James Logan (pictured) among the victims and the NHS blaming poor hygiene for the spread of the disease.

Bacillary dysentery: an acute infection of the intestine by Shigella bacteria; characterized by diarrhea and fever and abdominal pains. Source: WordNet Bacillary dysentery: dysentary caused by gram negative rod shaped enteric bacteria, most often by the genus Shigella; Shigella dysentery, Shigellosis, is classified into subgroups according. In , Simon Flexner, while visiting Manila, Philippines, isolated a bacterium from two patients with “red [bloody] diarrhoea” that he thought was the same as Shiga's Shigella dysenteriae. However, in , Martini and Lentz1 showed that this bacterium was a distinct microbe, Bacterium flexneri, renamed by Ewing2 as Shigella flexneri.

MUCH information, the fruit of real research, is contained in the valuable contribution entitled Studies of Bacillary Dysentery Occurring in the British Forces in Macedonia,[quot] which has now been published, under the editorship of Dr.

Bacillary dysentery should be considered in any patient with acute diarrheal illness associated with toxemia and systemic symptoms, particularly when the illness lasts longer than 48 hours, and when intrafamily spread occurs with an interval of 1 to 3 days between cases, fever is present, or blood or mucus is seen in stool.

Bacillary dysentery is a severe form of shigellosis caused by one of several types of Shigella bacteria. Infections in humans occur following ingestion of contaminated food and drinks with feces. Between 1 January and 31 Decembera total of 36, bacillary dysentery cases were reported in Wuhan City.

The annual cases ranged from. Not only does the organism cause point source outbreaks of dysentery, but, because of its low infectious dose (the ID 50 is approximately cells), can be spread by person-to-person contact. The severity of disease may range from a mild diarrhea to a severe dysentery (multiple stools of small volume which contain blood mucous and inflammatory.

Bacillary dysentery is associated with species of bacteria from the family Enterobacteriaceae. The term is usually restricted to Shigella infections. Shigellosis is caused by one of several types of Shigella bacteria.

This report, based upon a study of war material (16 cases), is replete with pathological details, many of interest to the profound student of pathology The character of the pathological anatomy of bacillary dysentery would seem to depend upon whether the changes are produced solely by the specific dysentery bacillus or are in any way influenced by a secondary invasion, or possibly a mixed.

Much of the dysentery described in older writings is felt to be bacillary (shigellosis) in origin due to rarity of liver involvement. Outbreaks of bacillary dysentery through the first World War were as important in deciding the outcome of most military campaigns as war-related injuries.
