Shigellosis Concept Map

In this concept map for Shigellosis, I focused on key aspects such as its causes, symptoms, modes of transmission, available treatments, and preventive measures.

At the core, I placed “Shigellosis,” branching out to its primary cause, “Shigella Bacteria.” For symptoms, I included critical indicators like diarrhea, fever, abdominal pain, and tenesmus.

Understanding its transmission is crucial, so I detailed person-to-person spread, contaminated food and water, and poor hygiene as major factors.

I have also emphasized the importance of antibiotics and rehydration in treatment, along with supportive care.

Finally, I highlighted prevention strategies, including hygiene and sanitation, safe food practices, and regular hand washing, underscoring the multifaceted approach needed to combat this disease.
