Plesiomonas shigelloides is a gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic rod whose appropriate taxonomic position is presently under investigation. The isolation and identification of this microorganism in contaminated specimens (e.g., feces) by a clinical laboratory depend on the screening of gram-negative colonies for oxidase and indole positivity and the appropriate use of selective and differential agars. Plesiomonads have been associated with extraintestinal diseases (bacteremia, meningitis… CONTINUE READING
