Aeromonas hydrophilia

A VIBRIO-like organism that contaminates water and often causes traveller's diarrhoea. It may also infect wounds and cause SEPTICAEMIA.

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.
