Corynebacterium species occur commonly in nature in the soil, water, plants, and food products. The nondiphtheiroid Corynebacterium species can even be found in the mucosa and normal skin flora of humans and animals. Unusual habitats, such as the preen gland of birds have been recently reported for Corynebacterium uropygiale To the Editor: Corynebacterium pseudodiphtheriticum has seldom been isolated from patients with upper respiratory tract infections and pneumonia. Most reported infections are community acquired and occur in patients with underlying disease and immunosuppression (1) Corynebacterium pseudodiphtheriticum has been reported to be an uncommon respiratory pathogen. We describe the clinical and microbiologic features of 17 patients from whose sputum C. pseudodiphtheriticum was isolated
Il Corynebacterium è un genere di batteri appartenente alla famiglia delle Corynebacteriaceae (Attinomiceti). Comprende una trentina di specie piccole, a forma bastoncellare, diritta o curva. Sono gram-positivi, cosmopoliti e aerobi. Parassitano piante (soprattutto Solanacee) e animali, uomo compreso Five cases of endocarditis due to Corynebacterium pseudodiphtheriticum are described. Two patients died, two patients with prosthetic valve endocarditis were successfully treated with antibiotics and valve replacement, and one patient with native valve endocarditis was successfully treated with penicillin alone I nondiphtheiroid Corynebacterium specie possono anche essere trovati nelle mucosa e normale della pelle della flora di uomini e animali.

The genus, Corynebacterium, was originally identified by Lehmann and Neumann in 1896 to encompass all diphtheria-causing Rod-shaped bacteria. Classification into this category was aided by examining morphology of the bacterium. Investigations into the 16S Ribosomal RNA (rRNA) made it possible to group Corynebacterium into the subdivision of Gram-positive bacterium whose genome contains a high. Although Corynebacterium pseudodiphtheriticum (for- merly known as Corynebacterium hofrnannii), an aerobic gram-positive bacillus, may be found in the normal human oropharyngeal flora, it may also be a human pathogen Corynebacterium pseudodiphtheriticum derived from ATCC® 10701™*, SKU: 0884L LYFO DISK™ DETAILS Corynebacterium pseudodiphtheriticum derived from ATCC® 10701™*, SKU: 0884P KWIK-STIK™ 2 Pack DETAIL
