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.

Footnotes Electronic supplementary material Supplementary information accompanies this paper at doi: Susceptibility to aminoglycosides and distribution of aph and aac 3 -XI genes among Corynebacterium striatum clinical isolates.

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.

However, the patient died on day 73 of admission. Corynebacterium Striatum infecting a Malignant cutaneous lesion: The term “diphtheroids” is used to represent corynebacteria that are non pathogenic ; for example, C. Gaiellales Rubrobacterales Thermoleophilales Solirubrobacterales. Indexed in Web of Science.

Some asynergy in wall motion was detected by echocardiography, striaatum no vegetation was seen. Indian J Med Microbiol ; Since most of reports classified C. Complete genome sequence and analysis of the multiresistant nosocomial pathogen Corynebacterium jeikeium K, a lipid-requiring bacterium of the human skin flora. In the present case, we report a catheter-related bloodstream infection caused by C.

Corynebacterium striatum is a nosocomial opportunistic pathogen increasingly associated with a wide range of human infections and is often resistant to several corynebactfrium. Identification, Clinical Relevance, and Antibiotic Susceptibility”. Epidemiological investigation of a nosocomial outbreak of multidrug-resistant Corynebacterium striatum at one Belgian university hospital.

Corynebacterium striatum: a diphtheroid with pathogenic potential.

Ten out of 20 carried erm X plus the erm B gene. Twenty out of the 24 C. Minimum Inhibitory Concentration of the C. The Corynebacteria are divided into two groups: Wikispecies has information related to Corynebacterium. Case Reports in Infectious Diseases. However, the optimal antimicrobial therapy for these infections is still controversial. Gram-positive corynebacetrium were detected from two different blood culture samples on day 67 of admission.

There are several reports of C.

Corynebacterium striatum: a diphtheroid with pathogenic potential.

Therefore, daptomycin can also be considered as an alternative to vancomycin for treatment of C. Advances in Cancer Research. Thus, several outbreaks of clonal multidrug-resistant C. Two examples of these conserved signature indels are a two-amino-acid insertion coryneacterium a conserved region of the syriatum phosphoribose diphosphate: Comparative analysis of corynebacterial genomes has led to the identification of several conserved signature indels which are unique to the genus.

Relationship between mutations corynebacrerium the gyrA gene and quinolone resistance in clinical isolates of Corynebacterium striatum and Corynebacterium amycolatum. Amikacin is eventually prescribed in combinative therapy against severe infections caused by C. The bacteria group together in a characteristic way, which has been described as the form of a “V”, “palisades”, or “Chinese letters”.

Multidrug-resistant, extensively drug-resistant and striatjm bacteria: These form a complex commonly seen in Corynebacterium species: Corynebacteria grow slowly, even on enriched media. Abstract A year-old woman visited our emergency department because of exertional dyspnea due to severe left ventricular functional failure. Susceptibility of 63 Corynebacterium striatum clinical isolates to 16 antimicrobial agents.

Support Center Support Center. Unfortunately, we could not successfully treat the patient because of her poor general condition and comorbidity.

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 Cystitis and haematuria due to Corynebacterium striatum. Antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of Corynebacterium striatum. Pulsed field gel electrophoresis: XbaI digestion of the 63 C. Journal of Applied Bacteriology.

Two pairs of isolates assigned to pulsotype E showed the same resistance profile. More recently, Gomila et al.

Clinical significance of Corynebacterium striatum isolated from human samples. Tauch A, et al. Structure, Function, and Genetics. Corynnebacterium corynebacteria have been frequently dismissed as a contaminant when isolated from clinical materials.

Brandenburg AH, et al. However, this gene was also detected in strains susceptible to kanamycin, probably due to mutations affecting its coding sequence or its promoter. Ethics statement This study was performed in accordance with the ethical guidelines of the Declaration of Helsinki Primers used to amplify the above mentioned genes are listed in Supplementary Table S1.
