Question Answered step-by-step Three medical students eat at a local restaurant that is perhaps… Three medical students eat at a local restaurant that is perhaps better known for its low prices than the quality of its cuisine. Their lunch consists of hot and sour soup, spring rolls, fried rice, and three other entrees. The servings are plentiful, so the left-over fried rice and two of the entrees are taken back to their apartment and stored in their refrigerator. The students decide to reheat the food and have it for lunch two days after bringing it home. Two hours later – ironically right in the middle of their medical microbiology class – all three students are overcome with an urge to vomit and quickly excuse themselves from class. A bout of severe nausea, vomiting, and abdominal cramps follows, but only one of them experiences diarrhea (which is relatively mild). Being highly inquisitive and dedicated medical students who always like to practice their diagnostic skills, they check each other’s vital signs, which turn out to be normal. The stool produced by the one student to experience mild diarrhea is watery, with no visible signs of blood or mucus. The symptoms of all three victims subside within 10 hours, without treatment, and without noticeable sequelae. None of the students have traveled outside of the city in which their university is located in the past six months. The reheated food is the only meal at which they all ate the same things since their lunch at the restaurant itself.¬†Question 1: How did this disease incident come about?Question 2: What is the most likely causative agent?Question 3: How does this causative agent produce disease?Question 4: Does this causative agent produce any other forms of GI disease?Question 5: How should this disease be treated?
