Flavobacterium

 [fla″vo-bak-tēr´e-um]
a genus of gram-negative, aerobic or facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria, characteristically producing a yellow pigment. Organisms occur widely in soil and water and are opportunistic pathogens in humans. F. meningosep´ticum causes a highly fatal meningitis with septicemia in premature and newborn infants and a milder bacteremia in adults; F. odora´tum occurs in wound infections and urinary tract infections.

Flavobacterium

(flā'vō-bak-tēr'ē-ŭm),
A genus of aerobic to facultatively anaerobic, non-spore-forming, motile, and nonmotile bacteria (family Achromobacteraceae) containing gram-negative rods; motile cells are peritrichous. These organisms characteristically produce yellow, orange, red, or yellow-brown pigments. They are found in soil and in fresh and salt water. Some species are pathogenic. The type species is Flavobacterium aquatile.
