Cardiobacterium

 [kahr´de-o-bak-tēr´e-um]
a genus of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria that are part of the normal flora of the nose and throat; C. ho´minis is a cause of endocarditis.

Cardiobacterium

(kar'dē-ō-bak-tē'rē-ŭm),
A genus of nonmotile, pleomorphic, gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria found in the nasal flora and associated with endocarditis in humans. The type species is Cardiobacterium hominis.

Cardiobacterium ho´minis  a species that is an etiologic agent of endocarditis.

Cardiobacterium

a gram-negative genus of facultative anaerobic rod-shaped bacteria that is part of the normal flora of the human nasopharynx region. It is associated with endocarditis, causing 5%-10% of cases.

HACEK refers to gram-negative bacilli: Haemophilus species (H parainfluenzae, H aphrophilus, and H paraphrophilus), Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, Cardiobacterium hominis Eikenella corrodens and Kingella species.
In summary, while the endocarditis-associated classic Gram negative bacteria, HACEK (an acronym that refers to Haemophilus species, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, Cardiobacterium hominis, Eikenella corrodens, and Kingella species) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa have been well documented, the emergence of Providencia stuartii as a source of endocarditis has not been established.
It is most commonly associated with a group of gram-negative bacilli collectively known as HACEK (for Hemophilus parainfluenzae, H aphrophilus, Hemophilus paraphrophilus, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, Cardiobacterium hominis, Eikenella corrodens, and Kingella kingae).
