Eubacterium

 [u″bak-tē´re-um]
a genus of gram-positive, anaerobic, rod-shaped organisms occurring as saprophytes in soil and water. They are normal flora of the skin and body cavities and occasionally cause soft tissue infection. Species include E. alactoly´�ticum, E. len´tum, and E. limo´sum.

Eubacterium

(yū'bak-tēr'ē-ŭm),
A genus containing more than 40 species of anaerobic, non-spore-forming, nonmotile bacteria containing straight or curved gram-positive rods that usually occur singly, in pairs, or in short chains. Usually these organisms attack carbohydrates. They may be pathogenic, and rarely are associated with intraabdominal sepsis in humans. The type species is Eubacterium limosum.

Eubacterium

/Eu·bac·te·ri·um/ (u-bak-tēr´e-um) a genus of bacteria of the family Propionibacteriaceae, found as saprophytes in soil and water, and normal inhabitants of human skin and cavities, occasionally causing infection of soft tissue.

Eubacterium

[yo̅o̅′baktir′ē·əm]
a large genus of nonsporulating gram-positive anaerobic rod-shaped bacteria normally found in soil and water. The organisms are also found in the skin and cavities of humans and other mammals, where they may cause soft-tissue infections. One species has been found in dental tartar; another synthesizes vitamin B12. Eubacterium is susceptible to penicillin, cliridamycin, and metronidazole.

Eu·bac·te·ri·um

(yū'bak-tēr'ē-ŭm)
A genus of anaerobic, non-spore-forming, nonmotile bacteria containing straight or curved gram-positive rods that usually occur singly, in pairs, or in short chains. Usually these organisms attack carbohydrates. They are often associated with mixed infections involving the abdomen, pelvis, or genitourinary tract. The type species is E. limosum.

Eu·bac·te·ri·um

(yū'bak-tēr'ē-ŭm)
Genus containing more than 40 species of anaerobic, non-spore-forming, nonmotile bacteria containing straight or curved gram-positive rods that usually occur singly, in pairs, or in short chains. Usually these organisms attack carbohydrates; may be pathogenic, but rarely are associated with intraabdominal sepsis in humans.

Eubacterium

(ū´baktē´rēəm),
n.pr a genus of anaerobic, non spore-forming, nonmotile bacteria containing straight or curved gram-positive rods that usually occur singly, in pairs, or in short chains. They usually metabolize carbohydrates and may be pathogenic.

Eubacterium

a genus of gram-negative, rod-shaped bacteria found in the intestinal tract as parasites, and as saprophytes in soil and water. Belong to the family Lactobacillaceae. Found sporadically in purulent lesions but are probably secondary invaders.

Eubacterium suis
causes pyelonephritis and cystitis in swine. Previously called Corynebacterium suis, now called Actinobaculum.
