Numerous basophilic coccobacillus
bacteria were observed intracellulary, phagocytized by the macrophages (Fig.
multocida, which belongs to the Pasteurellaceae family, is a nonmotile gram-negative coccobacillus
that is penicillin sensitive .
equi is an intracellular macrophage-tropic Grampositive coccobacillus
which possesses the capability to survive and multiply in murine and equine macrophages [5, 34].
Aggregatibacter aphrophilus (formerly Haemophilus aphrophilus) is an aerobic gram-negative coccobacillus
that belongs to the HACEK (Haemophilus aphrophilus/paraphrophilus, Actino bacillus actinomycetem comitans, Cardiobacterium hominis, Eikenella corrodens and Kingella spp.) group.
Pasteurella multocida is Gram negative, nonmotile, facultative anaerobic, coccobacillus
. Pasteurella infections are usually characterized by local intense cellulitis, purulent discharge, and lymphangitis 12 to 24 hours after the infection [1-3].
Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) is a small, fastidious gram-negative coccobacillus
that colonizes the human pharynx, the only known natural reservoir.
parainfluenzae is a pleomorphic Gram-negative coccobacillus
with fastidious growth requirements, which require enriched media, usually containing blood (e.g., chocolate agar).
Tularemia is a rare, often serious disease caused by a gram-negative coccobacillus
, Francisella tularensis, which infects humans and animals in the Northern Hemisphere (1).
Pasteurella multocida is a small gram-negative coccobacillus
that exists as normal flora in the upper respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts of animals, most commonly domestic and wild cats and dogs.
Based on the length/width ratio, bacterial cells were classified into the following morphotypes: coccus (ratio 1 to 1.25); coccobacillus
(1.26 to 1.75), bacillus (1.76 to 5) and filament (>5).
Scrub typhus is a rickettsial infection caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi, a small gram negative coccobacillus
, which is an obligate intracellular parasite.
A foodborne pathogen associated with undercooked pork, Yersinia enterocolitica is a gram-negative coccobacillus
causing appendicitis, ileitis, colitis, and mesenteric lymphadenitis (l).
The Gram-method staining shows that the enriched bacterial cultures were bacilli, cocci, and coccobacillus
We isolated 4 strains of bacteria (Gram-rods, Gram + Coccobacillus
, Gram + rods, Gram + Bacillus, identification according to Holt et al.
A gram-negative, psychrotolerant coccobacillus
is present in hemolymph of Cancer magister.
