Thirty-seven similar strains isolated from feces of cats and dogs and from human diarrheal feces had characteristics of the genus Anaerobiospirillum. These organisms were distinguished from the only previously described Anaerobiospirillum species, Anaerobiospirillum succiniciproducens, by producing acid from adonitol but not from fructose, raffinose, or(More)
Phenotypic and phylogenetic studies were performed on a Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium isolated from the uterus of a porpoise. Biochemical and physiological studies indicated that the bacterium was related to the family Pasteurellaceae. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing studies confirmed these findings and demonstrated that the bacterium represents(More)
The taxonomy of the genus Flavobacterium has undergone substantial changes in recent years since it was defined by Holmes et al. [1] as a group of gram-negative, yellow-pigmented, oxidase-positive rods that are strictly aerobic and nonmotile. Today, several Flavobacterium species have been reclassified into different genera [2]. Flavobacterium odoratum was(More)
AIMS To evaluate three oligonucleotide primer pairs--two specific for 16S and 23S rRNA sequences of Burkholderia cepacia, and the third specific for internal transcribed spacer region of 16S-23S sequences of B gladioli--for the identification and differentiation of reference and clinical strains of these and other species. METHODS The three primers sets(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the epidemiology, microbiology and outcome of infections caused by Capnocytophaga spp. at a single center. METHODS We report on ten documented infectious episodes caused by Capnocytophaga observed between 1994 and 1999 at the Innsbruck University Hospital. RESULTS In seven of ten patients, Capnocytophaga septicemia was diagnosed(More)
In the last 15 years, Burkholderia cepacia has emerged as a significant pathogen in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients, mainly due to the severity of infection observed in a subset of patients and the fear of transmission of the organism to noncolonized patients. Although patients who deteriorate rapidly cannot be predicted by microbiological characteristics,(More)
Anaerobiospirillum spp., motile, spiral anaerobic bacteria, have been implicated as a cause of diarrhea and bacteremia in humans. Anaerobiospirillumlike organisms and Anaerobiospirillum succiniciproducens were reported from 17 cases of diarrhea. Sixteen of the patients did not have any underlying disorders and recovered from the infection; the other one,(More)
Exiguobacterium spp. are alkaliphilic, halotolerant, non-spore-forming Gram-positive bacilli, hitherto uncharacterized from human infections. Six isolates of Exiguobacterium aurantiacum were obtained from patients with bacteraemia, three of whom had myeloma. All isolates formed orange-yellow pigmented colonies on blood agar, were catalase- and(More)
We describe a case of infective endocarditis due to Neisseria elongata, and review the literature. N. elongata is a constituent of the normal oral flora and a rare cause of infective endocarditis. Unfamiliarity with the organism and its rod-shaped morphology may lead to a delay in microbiological diagnosis. Although the organism is relatively sensitive to(More)
