TLDR
Molecular diagnosis of K. kingae infections by nucleic acid amplification techniques enables identification of this fastidious microorganism as the major cause of joint and bone infections in young children.

TLDR
Kingella kingae is a common etiology of pediatric bacteremia and the leading agent of osteomyelitis and septic arthritis in children aged 6 to 36 months and is generally susceptible to antibiotics that are administered to young patients with joint and bone infections.

[Sensitivity of Kingella kingae to antibiotics].
TLDR
In vitro susceptibility of the recovered strains was tested using determination of MICs in agar and the strains were susceptible to penicillin, ampicillin, ticarcillin, cephalothin, cefotaxime, gentamicin, chloramphenicol, tetracycline, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, and pefloxacin.
Respiratory carriage of Kingella kingae among healthy children.
TLDR
To determine the age-related prevalence of K. kingae, throat cultures were obtained from children ages 6 months to 14 years hospitalized for elective surgery who had not received antibiotics during the previous 30 days and from healthy infants younger than 6 months attending a well-baby-care clinic for routine vaccinations.
[Cervical spondylodiscitis caused by Kingella kingae. Apropos of a case].
TLDR
The main characteristics of Kingella kingae infections are reviewed: frequency of ENT and joint localizations, slow course, difficult clinical and bacteriological diagnosis, and satisfactory susceptibility to antimicrobial agents.
[Acute endocarditis caused by Kingella kingae in an infant].
TLDR
A case of bacterial endocarditis in a one year-old boy is reported and the organism was a Kingella kingae, an aerobic Gram negative bacillus, a normal inhabitant of the upper respiratory tract.
High prevalence of Kingella kingae in joint fluid from children with septic arthritis revealed by the BACTEC blood culture system
TLDR
The BACTEC blood culture system enhances the recovery of K. kingae from joint fluid and improves bacteriologic diagnosis of pediatric septic arthritis.
Ceftriaxone diffusion into cardiac fibrin vegetation. Qualitative and quantitative evaluation by autoradiography
TLDR
The pattern of diffusion of antibiotics in fibrin is an important pharmacokinetic parameter for predicting in vivo activity and may explain the fact that high local concentrations are necessary to sterilize vegetations.
Isolation of Kingella kingae from a corneal ulcer
TLDR
Kingella kingae was isolated from a corneal ulcer in an 11-month-old male, the first time isolation from the cornea has been reported.
Transfer of Moraxella kingae Henriksen and BØvre to the Genus Kingella gen. nov. in the Family Neisseriaceae
TLDR
Moraxella kingae to the genus Kingella gen. nov. in the family Neisseriaceae is proposed, because it differs from the other Moraxella species in several characters and apparently does not have genetic affinities to the other species.
Moraxella kingii sp.nov., a haemolytic, saccharolytic species of the genus Moraxella.
SUMMARY: A new Moraxella species, Moraxella kingii, is described. It is characterized by β-haemolysis, acid production from glucose and maltose, and lack of catalase activity. The strain 4177/66,
