Bacterial Growth Curve

1 comment:

  1. Q: A 6-year-old girl is brought to the physician by her mother because of a severe sore throat. Her temperature is 38.9°C (102.°F). Physical examination shows an erythematous posterior oropharynx with abscesses on the tonsillar pillars. A beta-lactamic antibiotic will have greatest efficacy at which of the following stages of bacterial growth curve?

    A: Log (exponential) phase.
