Aeromonas

 [a″er-o-mo´nas]
a genus of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria. A. hydro´phila causes cellulitis, wound infections, diarrhea, septicemia, and urinary tract infections. A. ca´viae and A. so´bia are found in fresh water and sewage and on fish, and cause gastroenteritis and wound infections in humans.

Aeromonas

(ār-ō-mō'năs),
A genus of gram-negative, oxidase-positive, aerobic, facultatively anaerobic bacteria (family Vibrionaceae) containing rod-shaped to coccoid cells; motile cells ordinarily possess a single, polar flagellum; some species are nonmotile. The metabolism of these organisms is both respiratory and fermentative; nutritional requirements are not stringent. These bacteria are found in water and sewage; some are pathogenic to freshwater and marine animals, and to humans. Effects in humans include cellulitis; wound infections; acute diarrhea (especially caused by Aeromonas sobria); septicemia; urinary tract infection; hepatobiliary, meningeal, and auricular infections; and endocarditis. The type species is Aeromonas hydrophila.

Aeromonas

/Aero·mo·nas/ (ār″o-mo´nas) a genus of schizomycetes usually found in water, some being pathogenic for fish, amphibians, reptiles, and humans.

Aeromonas

[er′ōmō′nəs]
a genus of pathogenic rod-shaped gram-negative bacteria (schizomycetes) found in fresh and salt water, soil, and sewage. Various species affect fish, amphibians, reptiles, and animals as well as humans, causing wound infections and gastroenteritis.

Aeromonas

A genus of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, non-spore-forming bacilli, which have been isolated from various foods, including dairy products, meats and vegetables; Aeromonas spp may contaminate skin wounds and cause intestinal and extra-intestinal infections, including meningitis and sepsis in immunocompromised hosts.

Aer·o·mo·nas

(ār-ō-mō'năs)
A genus of aerobic, facultatively anaerobic bacteria (family Aeromondaccae) containing gram-negative, rod-shaped coccoid cells that occur singly or in pairs or in clumps of chains; motile cells ordinarily possess a single, polar flagellum; some species are nonmotile. The metabolism of these organisms is both respiratory and fermentative. These bacteria are found in water and sewage; some are pathogenic to fresh water and marine animals. The type species is A. hydrophila.

Aer·o·mo·nas

(ār-ō-mō'năs)
Genus of water-borne bacteria also found in sewage.

Aeromonas

a genus of facultatively anaerobic, gram-negative rod-shaped bacteria in the family Pseudomonadaceae, usually resident in richly organic water and soil, and on fish species.

atypical Aeromonas salmonicida
miscellaneous infections of fish, not the identified A. salmonicida salmonicida, the cause of goldfish furunculosis, but may cause goldfish ulcer disease.
Aeromonas hydrophilia
causes ulcerative stomatitis (mouthrot, canker) of captive reptiles. Ulcerative lesions in the mouth may extend to cause osteomyelitis of the jaw bone, inflammation of the harderian gland and invasion of the corneospectacular area causing severe swelling. This bacterium may also cause septicemia, especially in aquatic snakes with access to infected water; causes fin, tail and snout erosions (red sore disease) in captive fish. May also cause diarrhea in foals.
Aeromonas liquefaciens
a group of closely related, motile aeromonads which cause hemorrhagic septicemia in many cultured pond-fish, aquarium fish and salmonids.
Aeromonas salmonicida salmonicida
causes goldfish ulcer disease, furunculosis in salmonids and erythrodermatitis in carp.
