Abstract

Summary

The isolation of from two patients with bacterial endocarditis is reported, and the clinical features are described.

These strains of produced small, shiny, convex colonies visible within a week on first isolation. After further subcultures, colonies were visible within 2 days. Isolation was achieved on blood or chocolate media with added CO. When examined later the strains did not require CO, but growth was improved by moisture.

They gave a positive oxidase reaction and produced indole, but did not produce catalase or reduce nitrates; this pattern of reactions should serve to distinguish them from strains of and .
