Commonly Known Microorganisms

  • Bacteria

Bacteria are microorganisms found in almost every environment on Earth. They are single-celled organisms that lack a nucleus (and therefore cannot be classified as plants or animals). Bacteria grow best in moist environments and reproduce by splitting into two or more new bacteria. Most bacteria are harmless, but some types cause disease.

Bacteria spread disease by infecting humans through the air or physical contact with other infected people or animals. Some types of bacteria can also survive in water and food sources, infecting people who consume them unknowingly.

  • Fungi

Fungi are a group of eukaryotic organisms that lack Chlorophyll. These organisms are Saprophytic, meaning they benefit from dead organic matter and grow on rotting trees, leaves, or dead animals. Some fungi can also be parasitic, meaning they can cause disease in humans.

Fungal infections can affect any body part but most commonly occur in the lungs (Pneumonia) or skin surfaces (Ringworm).

  • Protozoa

Protozoa are single-celled organisms that can be either parasitic or free-living. They are in almost every environment on Earth.

They spread disease by entering the body through the lungs and digestive tract, infecting cells and reproducing rapidly. The resulting damage can cause illness in humans and animals alike.

  • Virus

Viruses are tiny, infectious agents that can only multiply in the cells of living organisms. They consist of genetic material (DNA or RNA) surrounded by a protein coat called a Capsid, which protects the genetic material from being broken down by the host's cell.

Viruses spread when they attach to a host cell and inject their genetic material into it. The injected genetic material takes over the host cell and forces it to produce more copies of itself. They eventually try to break out of their host cells and seek out other cells to infect.

  • Prions

Prions are an infectious disease that results from misfolded protein. This type of infection is known as Prion Disease. Prions transmit through eating infected tissue or exposure to infected bodily fluids.

Prion diseases can be fatal within months. Avoid eating or handling infected tissue or bodily fluids to avoid spreading Prion diseases.

Diagnostic Facilities

  • Bacteriology

Bacteriology is the study of bacteria, including their structure, metabolism, and life cycle.

Microorganisms like bacteria can be beneficial or harmful depending on their function in a given environment. For example, some bacteria are helpful because they help break down waste material and release nitrogen into the soil for plant use. However, other bacteria cause disease because they invade our bodies and cause infections.

Lab tests can identify whether a microorganism is a bacterium by observing its physical characteristics under a microscope or through chemical reactions such as staining or growth on culture media (Agar Plates).

Bacteria can cause many different conditions in humans and animals depending on where they reside within the body: Some cause diseases like strep throat or pneumonia. While others live harmlessly in our intestines and help digest food.

  • Virology

Virology studies Viruses, tiny, infectious agents seen under a microscope. There are many viruses, and some cause disease.

The most common tests for virology are PCR and ELISA. PCR stands for Polymerase Chain Reaction, allowing easy analysation via the amplification of DNA or RNA samples. ELISA, Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay, is an immunological test that detects antibodies against a specific virus or other pathogens in human blood samples.

Commonly known viral conditions include Ebola and Zika fever (both caused by viruses called Filoviruses), Influenza (caused by a Coronavirus), Measles (caused by an Adenovirus), Chickenpox (a Poxvirus)

  • Parasitology

Parasitology studies Parasites, which live on or in other organisms and get nutrients from them. 

Parasites can be found anywhere, from inside our bodies to outside of them. They can be animals or plants. They can also be fungi or protists like bacteria.

Many tests diagnose a parasitic infection, including blood tests and stool cultures. Some infections have specific lab tests available for them. For example, Malaria has a blood test for detecting its presence in human blood cells and a urine test for detecting its presence in urine samples from patients suspected of having malaria symptoms due to their exposure history.

  • Infectious Diseases Serology

Serology studies antibodies, which are proteins secreted by cells in response to the presence of a foreign substance. These proteins interact with antigens, molecules that trigger an immune response.

Serologic tests diagnose and monitor infectious diseases, including Syphilis, Hepatitis B, and HIV/AIDS. 

The first step in a serologic test is isolating antibodies from a patient's blood sample by adding antigens that trigger an immune response and then separating the antibodies that the body has released in response.

  • Hepatitis and HIV

Hepatitis causes inflammation of the liver. It results from viruses and other factors such as alcohol or drugs. 

HIV attacks the immune system and causes many different health problems.

Several tests can determine Hepatitis and HIV. These include blood tests, urine tests, and saliva tests. 

Signs of Hepatitis include fever, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine and jaundice (yellowing skin). Signs of HIV include unexpected weight loss, Thrush (white patches in the mouth) and Diarrhea.

  • Mycology and Mycobacteriology

Mycology studies Fungi, a type of microorganism that includes yeasts, mushrooms, and moulds. Mycology includes the study of how these organisms grow, reproduce, and interact with other organisms.

Mycobacteriology is the study of Mycobacteria—bacteria that are closely related to actual bacteria. Mycobacteria are an essential part of human life. They live on our skin and in our intestines without causing any harm. However, some types of Mycobacteria can cause serious illnesses such as Tuberculosis (TB) or Leprosy.

Prion diseases are a group of rare, incurable neurodegenerative disorders that affect the brain and nervous system. They result from Prions—abnormal proteins that can cause other normal proteins to fold abnormally.

The symptoms of Prion disease include memory loss, changes in behaviour, difficulty walking or speaking, vision loss, dementia, and death.

Manipal Hospitals has the best infectious diseases doctor in Gurgaon for treatment of Prion Diseases. 

Infectious diseases result from viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites or other microorganisms. 

Infectious diseases can spread through air, water and food. Common infectious diseases include Influenza and Chickenpox.

There are a few steps that we can take to avoid getting an infectious disease:

  • Wash hands correctly before eating or touching face, mouth or nose, after using the bathroom and handling animals.

  • Stay away from people with symptoms of an illness, such as coughing or sneezing.

  • Take medicines as prescribed by the doctor.

  • Stay vaccinated for certain illnesses like Chicken pox and Measles. 

  • Wear a mask when exposed to a crowd.

Ringworm results from Fungus Trichophyton Rubrum passed between humans and animals. Ringworm is not contagious but spreads through shared clothing, towels and bedding.

Ringworm infection on the skin may cause scaly patches on the scalp or body. It may also cause itchiness or burning in the area of the infection. The symptoms of ringworm include:

  • Red, scaly patches on the scalp or body.

  • Itching or burning in the infected area.

Consult the best infectious diseases doctor in Gurgaon at Manipal Hospitals for any Ringworm symptoms.

All Bacteria are not harmful, but some can cause infections.

Common bacterial infections include:

  • Urinary Tract Infections (UTI)
