Patients with at least two positive blood cultures for Corynebacterium species were considered to have corynebacterial bacteraemia.
Only one episode of corynebacterial infection was recorded per patient regardless of the total number of positive blood cultures.
This confirmed that competing interactions may exist between these microbial families, whereby an increased colonization of a corynebacterial
Other corynebacterial infections like Keratolysis punctata and trichomycosis axillaris could be associated.
Coexistent erythrasma, trichomycosis axillaris and pitted keratolysis-an overlooked corynebacterial triad?

protein kinase G controls 2-Oxoglutarate dehydrogenase activity via the phosphorylation status of the Odhl protein.
Endocarditis, where the causative organism is Enterobacteriaceae is treated with a potent beta-lactam antibiotics plus an aminoglycoside and Corynebacterial
endocarditis is treated with penicillin plus an aminoglycoside.
This case raises the issue of waning vaccine protection in older patients and suggests that toxin-mediated corynebacterial
disease remains a threat to public health.
Since 1966, several case reports and reviews have described 191 cases of nondiphtheriae corynebacterial
endocarditis on both prosthetic and native valves.
Diphtheria, other mycobacterial, and corynebacterial
and coryneform infections.
