The microbial growing is suspected, by inconspicuous hemolytic zones at 24 hours (h) of incubation at 37[degrees]C on bovine blood agar, thereafter at 48 h and with an exhaustive macroscopic examination, it is possible to see white pin point colonies with 1-2 mm diameter, surrounded by a more prominent total ([beta]) hemolysis [9, 46, 57], it is partially acid-alcohol resistant and has a fermentative metabolism [35]; unlike clinical samples, cultures do not have a characteristic odor; CAMP test is helpful to confirm the identification [13,31] and differentiation from Arcanobacterium haemolyticum, which inhibit Staphylococcus aureus [beta] haemolysin [47].
