About this section


CDC:4 Q fever is a worldwide disease with acute and chronic stages caused by the bacteria Coxiella burnetii. Cattle, sheep, and goats are the primary reservoirs although a variety of species may be infected. Organisms are excreted in milk, urine, and feces of infected animals. During birthing the organisms are shed in high numbers within the amniotic fluids and the placenta. The organism is extremely hardy and resistant to heat, drying, and many common disinfectants which enable the bacteria to survive for long periods in the environment. Infection of humans usually occurs by inhalation of these organisms from air that contains airborne barnyard dust contaminated by dried placental material, birth fluids, and excreta of infected animals. Other modes of transmission to humans, including tick bites, ingestion of unpasteurized milk or dairy products, and human to human transmission, are rare. Humans are often very susceptible to the disease, and very few organisms may be required to cause infection.

MalaCards based summary: Q Fever, also known as infection due to coxiella burnetii, is related to pneumonia and malaria, and has symptoms including fever, headache and cough. An important gene associated with Q Fever is CD40LG (CD40 ligand), and among its related pathways is IL4-mediated signaling events. The compounds tuberculin and mannan have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include placenta, testes and monocytes, and related mouse phenotypes are renal/urinary system and immune system.

Disease Ontology:10 A primary bacterial infectious disease that is a zoonotic infectious disease affecting multiple organs, has material basis in coxiella burnetii, which is transmitted by inhalation of air contaminated by barnyard dust containing dried placental material, birth fluids, or excreta of infected herd animals, transmitted by ingestion of contaminated milk, transmitted by tick bites and transmitted by contact with infected person. the infection has symptom fever, has symptom headache, has symptom cough, has symptom pleuritic chest pain, has symptom myalgia and has symptom arthralgia.
