Distinguish anatomic sites of invasive Kingella kingae infections
Because of the improved culture methods (8,9) and sensitive nucleic acid amplification assays (NAAAs) (10-14) developed in recent years, Kingella kingae, a gram-negative coccobacillus of the Neisseriaceae family, is increasingly recognized as an invasive pathogen of early childhood.
His main research interests include Kingella kingae infections, human brucellosis, and pediatric skeletal system infections.
Kingella kingae, a short Gram negative bacillus, is best known for being a constituent of the HACEK group of organisms; i.
Kingella kingae was originally placed under the Moraxella genus and named Moraxella kingii after Elizabeth O King of the US Centers for Disease Control(CDC) who isolated the bacterium in 1960 (3).

Using primers to detect the mecA and nuc genes of Staphylococcus aureus and the cpn60 target on the chaperon gene of Kingella kingae
, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was performed using the purulent drainage obtained from the knee.

Population-Based Study of Invasive Kingella kingae Infections
To the Editor: For most of the 3 decades since the first description of Kingella kingae, this gram-negative bacillus was considered a rare cause of human disease (1).
