Organ Specific Manifestation- When the microbe affects the same organ or an organ of the same system as the point of its entry.

Eg. Tuberculosis: Point of Entry- Nose Organ Infected: Lungs

Tissue Specific Manifestation- When the microbe affects an entirely different organ as its point of entry.

Eg. Japanese Encephalitis: Point of Entry- Blood Vessels Organ Infected- Brain

 

Hope it helps! :)

when a foreign microbe enters a body,it 's target depends upon its mode of entry. for example if a microbe enters through the nose it is likely that the respiratory system will be affected.... these are organ specific manfestations ..

I am sure that you know about the organs and tissues. The signs and symptoms of a disease depend on the tissue or organ which the microbes target.

Few examples of organ specific manifestation are: Tuberculosis, Typhoid, Jaundice

Examples of tissue specific manifestations are: HIV ( that spreads to lymph nodes all over the body), Malaria.
