Today's lecture was all about brain infections.
Meningitis,encephalitis,brain abscess yada yadaaaa.
And there was this one lecturer who made me freakin' out of nowhere.
Owh,and he is my mentor.And he exaggerates much in telling story.
Today's lecture taught me that if you want to swim in the river and you like to jump jump from a big stone so that big splash splash come out,you better hold your breath and pinch your nose inside the water.
If not,this little creature named Acanthamoeba will go to your brain through nose and cause granulomatous encephalitis.This Acanthamoeba lives in the river.
|Thames River probably has many Acanthamoeba.*pandai-pandai je aku tuduh Sg Thames.haha|
Domestic cats may kill.
I do no joke.This parasite,Toxoplasma gondii likes to built a happy family in your Siamese cat's,Parsi cat's and cats' poops.The parasite may cause encephalitis too.
|Who cares about poops?Just their smell and texture matters.|
And what more,
even walking through the grasses also can cause brain infection.
And I was like,(apakah keadaan ini?lalu kat rumput pun boleh dapat infeksi?!!lepasni aku taknak pijak rumput lagi!).
And what makes this freakier?
You know Japanese encephalitis?Infection that kills so many people.The cases was quite famous a long time ago.Nowadays it is less heard but still exist.
Ah,that JE is brought up by Culex mosquito.
And this Culex is the ordinary mosquito.Mind that Aedes has stripes aite?
This one is the one which don't has stripes.Plain black body.We see it everyday.We get bitten by it almost everyday.I thought Aedes is dangerous but Culex seems dangerouser.(ada ka word dangerouser?).Well, both of them may carry viruses.So they are both dangerous.
We don't know whether the Culex have JE virus or not when they enjoying sucking our blood and say 'wow this is yummayh!'.
So,better say thanks to Allah for not having brain infections everytime we were bitten by mosquitoes.NOW.
Jadi entri ini sangatlah menampakkan aku sebagai seorang budak medik.
Tujuan entri ini adalah untuk berkongsi apa yang aku telah belajar hari ini sebab tetibe rasa cam rajin dan takleh tido.
Juga kerana penyebab-penyebab jangkitan pada otak adalah kerana terjun dalam sungai tak tutup hidung,kucing,rumput dan nyamuk.
Which are common and some of them, we see everyday.
And terjun dalam sungai dari batu yang besar tak tutup hidung,aku suka buat.
p/s:Makin aku tau pasal penyakit-penyakit ni makin aku takut je.Rasa macam better tak tahu pun ada.HAHA.
