Taking this quiz can help you see how much you know about sexually transmitted diseases.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following causes cervical cancer?

    • A.

      HIV

    • B.

      HPV

    • C.

      HSV

    • D.

      HBV

    Correct Answer
    B. HPV
    Explanation
    HPV (Human Papillomavirus) is the correct answer because it is a well-known and established cause of cervical cancer. HPV is a sexually transmitted infection that can lead to the development of abnormal cells in the cervix, which can eventually progress to cervical cancer if left untreated. Other options like HIV, HSV, and HBV are not directly linked to cervical cancer. HIV weakens the immune system, making individuals more susceptible to infections including HPV, but it is not a direct cause. HSV (Herpes Simplex Virus) causes genital herpes, and HBV (Hepatitis B Virus) causes liver inflammation, but neither are known to cause cervical cancer.

    The gram stained smear from the endocervical swab of a healthy woman should contain

    • A.

      Moderate Lactobacillus

    • B.

      Lots of Candida albicans

    • C.

      Some Neisseria gonorrhea

    Correct Answer
    A. Moderate Lactobacillus
    Explanation
    The gram stained smear from the endocervical swab of a healthy woman should contain moderate Lactobacillus. Lactobacillus is a normal part of the vaginal microbiota and helps maintain a healthy vaginal environment by producing lactic acid, which helps to prevent the overgrowth of harmful bacteria. Moderate levels of Lactobacillus indicate a balanced vaginal microbiota and suggest good vaginal health. The presence of lots of Candida albicans (a fungus that can cause vaginal yeast infections) or Neisseria gonorrhea (a sexually transmitted infection) would be abnormal and indicate an imbalance or infection.

    At-risk healthcare workers must be immunized against HBV or must sign a refusal statement waiving employer liability.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Healthcare workers are at a higher risk of exposure to hepatitis B virus (HBV) due to their occupation. To protect themselves and prevent the spread of the virus, it is important for at-risk healthcare workers to be immunized against HBV. This immunization not only safeguards the healthcare workers but also reduces the risk of transmission to patients. Alternatively, if a healthcare worker refuses to be immunized, they may sign a refusal statement waiving employer liability. This ensures that the healthcare worker is aware of the risks involved and takes responsibility for their decision. Therefore, the statement "At-risk healthcare workers must be immunized against HBV or must sign a refusal statement waiving employer liability" is true.

    High serum titers for HSV-1 or HSV-2  IgM antibodies indicate that the patient has active herpes.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    High serum titers for HSV-1 or HSV-2 IgM antibodies indicate that the patient has active herpes because IgM antibodies are produced by the immune system in response to a recent infection. Therefore, the presence of high levels of these antibodies suggests that the patient's immune system is actively fighting the herpes virus, indicating an ongoing infection.

    Lesions of HSV can be broken and content collected with a swab for HSV test through viral cultures. The swab should not be placed into any transport media.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false. When collecting a swab for HSV test through viral cultures, it is necessary to place the swab into a transport media. This is done to preserve the sample and prevent contamination. Without the transport media, the swab may not be suitable for testing, as the viral particles may degrade or become contaminated.

    HBV can be transmitted sexually or through contact with blood or other body fluids.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    HBV, or Hepatitis B virus, can indeed be transmitted sexually or through contact with blood or other body fluids. This means that engaging in unprotected sexual activities with an infected person or coming into contact with their blood, saliva, semen, vaginal fluids, or breast milk can put individuals at risk of contracting the virus. It is important to practice safe sex and avoid sharing needles or other personal items that may come into contact with blood or bodily fluids to prevent the spread of HBV.

    Employees at risk of getting infected with HBV like phlebotomists must either be vaccinated with HBV or fill out a waiver form.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Employees who are at risk of getting infected with HBV, such as phlebotomists, must either be vaccinated with HBV or fill out a waiver form. This means that it is mandatory for these employees to take preventive measures to protect themselves from the virus. Vaccination is the recommended option as it provides the best protection against HBV. However, if an employee chooses not to get vaccinated, they can fill out a waiver form indicating their decision and assuming responsibility for any potential risks. Therefore, the statement "True" accurately reflects the requirement for employees at risk of HBV infection.

    When testing for the cause of urethritis in men, a urinalysis urine specimens should be collected first before urethral swabs and urine specimens for STD.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The correct answer is False. When testing for the cause of urethritis in men, urethral swabs and urine specimens for STD should be collected first before a urinalysis. This is because the urinalysis may not provide accurate results for detecting the specific pathogens causing the infection, while the swabs and urine specimens for STD can directly identify the presence of sexually transmitted diseases that commonly cause urethritis. Therefore, it is important to prioritize the collection of these samples before conducting a urinalysis.

  • 46. 

    When testing for the cause of urethritis in men, urethral swabs and urine specimens for STD should be collected first before, urinalysis urine specimen.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Collecting urethral swabs and urine specimens for STD testing before conducting a urinalysis urine specimen is the correct approach when testing for the cause of urethritis in men. This is because STDs are a common cause of urethritis, and collecting samples specifically for STD testing allows for accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Urinalysis may not always detect the specific pathogens responsible for urethritis, so it is important to prioritize STD testing to ensure accurate results and effective management of the condition.

    What agar plate is chlamydia inoculated on

    • A.

      TSA w/ 5% sheep blood

    • B.

      MTM

    • C.

      Chocolate

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    D. None
    Explanation
    Chlamydia is an intracellular bacterium that cannot grow on agar plates alone. It requires living cells to grow and replicate. Therefore, it cannot be inoculated on any of the agar plates mentioned (TSA w/ 5% sheep blood, MTM, or chocolate). The correct answer is "none" because Chlamydia requires specialized cell culture techniques for its growth and detection.

    Rate this question:

  • 48. 

    Chlamydia is tested in the following ways.

    • A.

      DNA probe

    • B.

      Cell culture

    • C.

      In agar plates

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. DNA probe
    B. Cell culture
    Explanation
    Chlamydia can be tested using a DNA probe or through cell culture. A DNA probe is a molecular technique that detects the presence of chlamydia DNA in a patient's sample. This method is highly sensitive and specific, allowing for accurate diagnosis. On the other hand, cell culture involves growing chlamydia bacteria in a laboratory setting. This method allows for the identification and isolation of the bacteria, confirming the presence of chlamydia. Both DNA probe and cell culture are commonly used methods for testing chlamydia due to their reliability and accuracy.

    Chlamydia is an obligate intracellular bacteria, and can not be culture on agar.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Chlamydia is an obligate intracellular bacteria, meaning it can only survive and reproduce inside host cells. This characteristic makes it impossible to culture Chlamydia on agar, a solid medium commonly used to grow bacteria in a laboratory setting. Therefore, the statement that Chlamydia cannot be cultured on agar is true.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Complex STD tests that are time-consuming and require advanced technology should be sent to the reference laboratory. This means that these tests cannot be effectively conducted in a regular laboratory setting and need to be sent to a specialized facility with the necessary resources and expertise. Therefore, the statement "True" indicates that sending these tests to a reference laboratory is the appropriate course of action.
