Bacterial Diseases in Humans

Bacterial diseases refer to a large variety of diseases caused by bacteria or bacterial components that affect humans, domesticated animals, wildlife, fish, and birds. Most of these diseases are contagious—that is, they can be passed from one member of a species to another member, or, in a smaller number of instances, from one species to a different species. Depending on the organism, bacterial disease can be spread in different ways.

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis- Mycobacterium Tuberculae
  • Cholera- Vibrio cholerae
  • Diphtheria- Diphtheria
  • Leprosy- Mycobacterium leprae
  • Tetanus- Clostridium tetani
