dc.description.abstractThe gram-negative coccobacilli (GNCB) that are important human pathogens include Bordetella, Brucella, Francisella, Haemophilus, Legio-nella, Pasteurella, Moraxella and Yersinia spp. Other GNCB including Actinobacillus, Aggregatibacter, Cardiobacterium, Eikenella, and Kin-gella spp. occasionally cause human disease. All of these genera except Yersinia are fastidious, requiring special nutrients and growth factors for isolation. Other less common GNCB not discussed further in this chapter include Oligella ureolytica, Psychrobacter phenylpyruvicus (formally Moraxella phenylpyruvica) and Psychrobacter immobilis. Actinobacillus ureae is an occasional opportunist human pathogen, associated with pneumonia, lung abscess and invasive infections.
