Dermatological Infectious Diseases

The dermatological infectious disease is generally defined as the skin infections caused by bacteria fungi and other microorganisms. The infectious disease diagnosis on molecular level is developing notably over the past decade. The dermatologic disease diagnosis involve many different new and advanced techniques like transcription-mediated amplification, nucleic-acid sequence based amplification, polymerase chain reaction, ligase chain reaction etc. The operating cost of these techniques are decreasing with time as well as acquiring approval of U.S. Food and Drug Administration and getting easier and more effective to use. In the future, it has been expected that these techniques will be able to provide fast and accurate diagnosis of infectious diseases in a single clinical visit. Patients with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS are at an increased risk for developing a variety of skin problems or diseases because of their compromised immune system.

Flu is a contagious acute self-limiting infection caused by influenza A and B viruses. It is classically characterised by systemic symptoms, with fever, chills, headache, myalgia, malaise and anorexia, with respiratory symptoms such as cough, pharyngitis and rhinorrhoea. A number of different laboratory diagnostic tests can be used for detecting the presence of influenza viruses in respiratory specimens, including direct antigen detection tests, virus isolation in cell culture, or detection of influenza-specific RNA by real-time reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (rRT-PCR).  These tests differ in their sensitivity and specificity in detecting influenza viruses,  the amount of time needed from specimen collection until results are available, and the tests’ ability to distinguish between different influenza virus types (A versus B) and influenza A subtypes (e.g. novel H1N1 versus seasonal H1N1 versus seasonal H3N2 viruses). The choice of test depends on factors such as the duration of symptoms, prevalence of influenza in the community, the clinical setting and proximity to a laboratory. Prompt diagnosis is important because antiviral therapy is most efficacious when commenced in the first 48 hours of illness.
