Gram-positive cocci dominate as brain abscess pathogens. The Streptococcus milleri group (S. constellatus, S. intermedius, and S. anginosus) comprise 50% to 70%, and staphylococci account for 10% to 30%. Although Streptococcus pneumoniae causes meningitis, it rarely causes.

Recent tests can be accessed from the home page while older ones can be seen through ‘MOCK TESTS’ link in the navigation bar at the top.

They are either alpha or non- hemolytic and negative for other tests described above. They produce a green color on blood agar plates (Viridis, Latin: Green). Viridans streptococci can be differentiated from S. pneumoniae using an optochin test.

Viridans streptococci are optochin-resistant. They are non-groupable. alpha-hemolytic streptococci produce greening of the blood agar due to partial destruction of the red blood cells.

beta-hemolytic streptococci produce clearing of the blood agar due to complete destruction of the red blood cells. non-hemolytic streptococci grow on the other ingredients in blood agar, but do not lyse the red blood cells.

Group B streptococcus (GBS), also known as Streptococcus agalactiae is a Gram-positive, β-hemolytic, chain-forming bacterium and a commensal within the genital tract flora in approximately 25% of healthy adult women (Campbell et al., ).The organism is a leading cause of serious infection in newborns, pregnant women, and older persons with chronic medical illness (Baker.

Streptococci are non-motile, microaerophilic, Grampositive spherical bacteria (cocci). They often occur as chains or pairs and are facultative or strict anaerobes.

Streptococci give a negative catalase test, while staphylococci are catalase-positive. The cell division of Streptococci species involves two separate biosynthetic events: peripheral cell-wall elongation and septal-wall synthesis.

1 Because they are unable to synthesize cytochromes, Streptococci. This group includes beta-hemolytic streptococci with different Lancefield antigens, alpha or non-hemolytic streptococci, microaerophilic streptococci or peptostreptococci.

It is a commensal of the. Catalase: All streptococci are catalase negative, and thus do not bubble when exposed to hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2). Differentiation Between Strains; Hemolytic ability (Ability to lyse erythrocytes) Streptococci are plated on blood agar plate and area surrounding colonies are observed; Beta-hemolytic: Completely hemolyze RBCs, white area.

The incidence and severity of streptococcal diseases decreased dramatically after the introduction of antibiotics antibiotic. An attempt has been made to interpret on the lines of the Arthus phenomenon the secondary reaction which follows the intradermal inoculation of certain non-hemolytic streptococci into rabbits; but evidence in support of this interpretation of the reaction has not been obtained.

February 1 2. SUMMARY Gram-positive anaerobic cocci (GPAC) are a heterogeneous group of organisms defined by their morphological appearance and their inability to grow in the presence of oxygen; most clinical isolates are identified to species in the genus Peptostreptococcus.

GPAC are part of the normal flora of all mucocutaneous surfaces and are often isolated from infections such as deep organ abscesses. Despite one United States population-based study reporting viridans group streptococci as the most common infecting organism, 31 most recent studies show that staphylococcal infection is the most common responsbile pathogen.

2,3,5,9,32 There is a growing prevalence of antibiotic resistance among these organisms, especially viridans group. STUDY. PLAY. Streptococci are usually: A. GPC in clusters B.

5- Microaerophilic and other streptococci are also often isolated. 6- It is particularly active against such as staphylococci, streptococci and salmonella. 7- Erysipelas is caused most frequently by beta-hemolytic streptococci.

8- All infants are initially colonized by large numbers of “E. coli” and streptococci. Such strains are usually assigned descriptive terms such as non-hemolytic streptococci or microaerophilic streptococci. They have been less thoroughly studied, but generally have the same biologic behavior as the viridans streptococci.

Viridans and nonhemolytic species lack Lancefield antigens or capsules. Group A Streptococci (Streptococcus. Jordan (12) recovered short Gram-negative bacilli and Gram-positive bacilli and questioned their importance. The occurrence of such bacteria would appear to be not unlike that of the non-hemolytic (gamma type) streptococci reported by Small (7), Birkhaug (9) and, rarely, by Cecil et al.

(2) and Margolis and Dorsey (10,11). Pulmonary streptococcal infection can present as bronchopneumonia or as a hemorrhagic form. 9,11,22,31,44 In the present study, fetal/neonatal streptococcal bronchopneumonia was the most common presentation.

Concurrent infection with other bacteria or viruses often complicates the histologic picture in streptococcal bronchopneumonia. Study Micro: Bacteriology flashcards from Jeanne M. on StudyBlue. Streptococcus [strep″to-kok´us] a genus of gram-positive, facultatively aerobic cocci (family Streptococcaceae) occurring in pairs or chains.

It is separable into the pyogenic group, the viridans group, the enterococcus group, and the lactic group. The first group includes the beta-hemolytic human and animal pathogens; the second and third include. further differentiation w/Lancefield Ab, hemolysis patterns (alpha, beta, non hemolytic), some are normal flora, some are pathogenic, some are both; Lancefield Group D antigen +, normal GI flora, nosocomial infection, Antibiotic resistant.

Anaerobic infections are caused by anaerobic bacteria. Obligately anaerobic bacteria do not grow on solid media in room air (% carbon dioxide and 21% oxygen); facultatively anaerobic bacteria can grow in the presence or absence of air.

Microaerophilic bacteria do not grow at all aerobically or grow poorly, but grow better under 10% carbon dioxide or anaerobically. Non hemolytic colonies. Enterococcus faecales Most of oral streptococci and enterococci are non- hemolytic. The property of hemolysis is not very reliable for the absolute identification of streptococci, but it is widely used in rapid screens for identification of S.

pyogenes & S. pneumoniae. (pneumococcus). DNA homology studies have established Enterococcus (formerly streptococci) as a separate genus, distinct from Streptococcus.

This lecture will cover only two of these pathogens, S. pyogenes and S. pneumoniae. Although not covered in the lecture you are also responsible for S. agalactiae, enterococci and viridans streptococci. Coli, and various Streptococcus species (peptostreptococci, nonhemolytic streptococci, microaerophilic streptococci, and [beta]-hemolytic streptococci of groups A, B, and C) [2, 3].

A Rare Case of Lemierre-Like Syndrome: A Case Report and Literature Review. Necrotizing infections (NIs) of the skin and soft tissue are caused by various microorganisms and often have a polymicrobial etiology.

The main nosological forms are represented by necrotizing fasciitis, bacterial and streptococcal gangrene.

Necrotizing infections of clostridial etiology are rare, other pathogens are more common. Studies on Streptococcal Fibrinolysis.

Brain abscess (or cerebral abscess) is an abscess caused by inflammation and collection of infected material, coming from local (ear infection, dental abscess, infection of paranasal sinuses, infection of the mastoid air cells of the temporal bone, epidural abscess) or remote (lung, heart, kidney etc.) infectious sources, within the brain tissue.

Primary lung abscesses usually arise from aspiration, are often caused principally by anaerobic bacteria, and occur in the absence of an underlying pulmonary or systemic ary lung abscesses arise in the setting of an underlying condition, such as a postobstructive process (e.g., a bronchial.Most cases of anaerobic or microaerophilic streptococcal endocarditis can be effectively treated with 12–20 million units of penicillin G intravenously daily for 4–6 weeks.

However, optimal therapy for other types of anaerobic bacterial endocarditis must rely on laboratory guidance.
