Identification of Turicella otitidis isolated from a patient with otorrhea associated with surgery: differentiation from Corynebacterium afermentans and Corynebacterium auris.

Abstract

Turicella otitidis is a newly described coryneform bacterium isolated from middle ear fluids. We report here on the diagnosis of a strain isolated from otorrhea. The API Coryne system (bioMérieux, Marcy I'Etoile, France) used alone failed to differentiate T. otitidis, Corynebacterium afermentans, and Corynebacterium auris (ANF group). Biochemical tests such… (More)
