  • ABSTRACT Haematobacter is a newly proposed genus for a group of fastidious Gram-negative aerobic bacilli isolated mostly from blood samples from patients with septicemia. The Haematobacter genus currently includes two species, H. massiliensis and H. missouriensis. We report isolation of a novel Haematobacter-like species from the blood of a 65-year-old man who suffered from probable aortic valve endocarditis. The possible causative role was suggested by the monomicrobial culture and the absence… CONTINUE READING
