When isolated from clinical specimens, nondiphtherial Corynebacteria, such as Corynebacterium striatum, Corynebacterium amycolatum. ABSTRACT. We describe an unusual cluster of Corynebacterium striatum infections in 21 patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) admitted. Objective: To evaluate the clinical significance of and describe factors associated with Corynebacterium striatum infection. Methods: A.

Antimicrobial susceptibility assays Antimicrobial susceptibilities were determined by micro-dilution in cation adjusted Muller-Hinton broth and interpreted following Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute CLSI guidelines As with various species of a microbiota including their cousins in the genera Arcanobacterium and Trueperellathey usually are not pathogenic but can occasionally opportunistically capitalize on atypical access to tissues via wounds or weakened host defenses.

A year-old woman was brought to our emergency department because of exertional dyspnea due to severe left ventricular functional failure. Corynebacterium striatum is an emerging nosocomial pathogen associated with wound infections, pneumonia and meningitis. The 51,bp R-plasmid pTP10 from the multi-resistant clinical isolate Cornyebacterium striatum M82B is composed of DNA segments initially identified in soil bacteria and in plant, animal, and human pathogens.

Case Reports in Infectious Diseases

Accurate diagnosis of the infection and prompt vorynebacterium helped in a favourable outcome for the patient. Mutations in gyrA were identified by aligning sequences of resistant isolates to the sequence of C.

Abstract A year-old woman visited our emergency department because of exertional dyspnea due to severe left ventricular functional failure. In this study, we aimed to investigate the susceptibility of the 63 C.


C content, with close phylogenetic relationship to ArthrobacterMycobacteriumNocardiaand Streptomyces. Acquired antibiotic resistance genes: Thermodesulfobacteria thermophiles Aquificae Thermotogae Cyanobacteria. Tierarztliche Praxis in German. We obtained XbaI macro-restriction patterns of the 63 C.

However, most of these cases are represented by patients with implanted indwelling devices or who present an immunosuppression [ 26 ].

The lifestyle of Corynebacterium urealyticum derived from its complete genome sequence established by pyrosequencing.

Report of a case with polymicrobial endocarditis related to multiresistant strains. High corynebactwrium of macrolide resistance mechanisms in clinical isolates of Corynebacterium species.

This fact confirms the previously reported high corynehacterium of resistance to compounds of the MLS B group among Corynebacterium spp. In phylogenetic trees based on concatenated protein sequences or 16S rRNA, the genus Corynebacterium forms a distinct clade, within which is a distinct subclade, cluster I. Some strains also need thiamine and PABA. Upon antibiotic administration, a selective pressure is created in body organs where fluoroquinolones tend to accumulate.

However, this compound can only be detected by special analyses, for example, gas chromatography; thus C. Actinomyces israelii Actinomycosis Cutaneous actinomycosis Tropheryma whipplei Whipple’s disease Arcanobacterium haemolyticum Arcanobacterium haemolyticum infection Actinomyces gerencseriae.

Corynebacterium – Wikipedia

It can be spread within a hospital. Both of these indels serve as molecular markers for species of the genus Corynebacterium. It is more common in developing countries [20] It can occasionally infect wounds, the vulvathe conjunctivaand the middle ear. A year-old woman visited our emergency department because of exertional dyspnea due to severe left ventricular functional failure.

The nonlipophilic bacteria may be classified as fermentative and nonfermentative:.

A variety of infections have been associated with this bacterium: Successful treatments of C. They are widely distributed in nature in the microbiota of animals including the human microbiota and are mostly innocuous, most commonly existing in commensal relationships with their hosts.

Perhaps the most notable one is C. Int J Med Clin Res ;4: Indian J Med Microbiol ; Clin Microbiol Rev ; Additionally, 16 conserved signature proteins, which are uniquely found in Corynebacterium species, have been identified.

J Clin Microbiol ; PCR reactions were performed as previously described Notes Competing Interests The authors declare that they have no competing interests. Species of Corynebacterium have been used in the mass production of various amino acids including glutamic acida food additive that is made at a rate of 1.

Case Presentation A year-old woman was brought to our emergency department because of exertional dyspnea due to severe left ventricular functional failure. In two strains no changes in their QRDRs were detected, indicating that striatm was mediated by a different mechanism. Although the biochemical properties of C. Corynebacterium diphtheriae Diphtheria Corynebacterium minutissimum Coeynebacterium Corynebacterium jeikeium Group JK corynebacterium corynebacyerium. No bacteria species could be identified at this time.

Among the several clones of C. View at Google Scholar A. This work highlights the high prevalence of multi-resistant strains and resistance genes among the C. The metabolic pathways of Corynebacterium have been further manipulated to produce lysine and threonine. Forty-six out of the 63 C. Twenty-nine resistance profiles were distinguished corynebcaterium the 59 resistant C.
