neuii was involved in the CDC coryneform
group 1 bacteria until 1994.
diphtheriae infection was not clinically suspected in any of the patients; treating institutions detected the organism through matrix-assisted laser desorption/ ionization-time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF) testing ofwound-derived coryneform
Clinical and epidemiological features of coryneform
skin infections at a tertiary hospital.
Jude Children's Hospital, USA, reported 17 cases of infections caused by coryneform
bacteria in paediatric patients with cancer (with a median age of 11.2 years old).
Gram stain of the BAL fluid showed 3 + WBCs with rare Gram negative rods, 1+ Gram positive cocci, and few coryneform
Gram positive rods which was felt to be consistent with normal upper respiratory flora.
Direct microscopy of the undiluted vitreous sample showed pleomorphic rods with coccoid or club-shaped appearance suggesting coryneform
The present study was planned with the same objective, but specifically to explore the impact of varying biotin concentrations upon the membrane permeability of a Coryneform
strain, Corynebacterium glutamicum NIAB SS-27.

One out of three sets of blood cultures was positive for coryneform
bacilli at 65 hours which was thought to be a contaminant.
