  • Little is known about the virulence and clinical impact on humans from infection with Anaeroglobus geminates, an anaerobic gram-negative coccus belonging to the family Veillonellaceae. We report the first case of an Anaeroglobus geminates invasive infection in humans characterized by pneumonia complicated with empyema. The pathogen was initially identified as Veillonella spp. by an automatic identification system (Becton-Dickinson and Company, Franklin Lakes, NJ, USA) and definitively… CONTINUE READING
