Streptococcus suis is a peanut-shaped, Gram-positive bacterium, and an important pathogen of pigs. Endemic in nearly all countries with an extensive pig industry, S. suis is also a zoonotic disease, capable of transmission to humans from pigs. Humans can be infected with S. suis when they handle infected pig carcasses or meat, especially with exposed cuts and abrasions on their hands. Human infection can be severe, with meningitis, septicaemia, endocarditis, and deafness as possible outcomes of infection. Fatal cases of S. suis are uncommon, but not unknown.

dbo:abstract
  • Streptococcus suis ist ein Bakterium aus der Gattung Streptococcus und verursacht die Enzootische Streptokokkenmeningitis der Schweine. S. suis ist auch humanpathogen und somit ein Zoonoseerreger. S. suis ist grampositiv, rundlich, fakultativ anaerob und katalasenegativ. Es werden 35 Serovaren unterschieden, die zu den Lancefield-Gruppen R, S und T gehören. (de)

Human infection can be severe, with meningitis, septicaemia, endocarditis, and deafness as possible outcomes of infection. Fatal cases of S. suis are uncommon, but not unknown. Penicillin is the most common antibiotic used in treatment of S. suis infection; in cases with cardiac involvement (endocarditis), gentamicin should also be given for synergistic effect. (en)

  • 豬鏈球菌(Streptococcus suis)是一種革蘭氏陽性致病菌。病菌可經飛沫或傷口觸碰而感染人類。病菌會入侵腦膜,使患者出現發燒、神志不清和昏迷等病徵。由於豬鏈球菌可能會侵襲聽覺神經,因此有機會導致失聰。假如病菌進入血液,更有機會出現敗血症,引起皮下出血及急性器官衰竭。 2005年6月-8月,中國四川省爆發豬鏈球菌感染,发现病例204例,造成38人死亡。 (zh)
