During an 8-month period, 24 Corynebacterium striatum isolates recovered from lower respiratory tract specimens of 10 hospitalized patients were characterized. The organisms were identified by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) and by 16S rRNA gene sequencing. The cluster of C. striatum exclusively affected patients who had been admitted to an intensive care unit and/or subsequently transferred to one medium-size respiratory care unit… CONTINUE READING
