Farlex Partner Medical Dictionary © Farlex 2012
A now-retired genus of gram-negative bacilli of the Salmonella tribe of the Enterobacteriaceae family; infection is uncommon, and usually an extension of colonization
The name ‘Arizona’ appears to have been applied in one form or another to a group of Salmonella-like organisms since the late 1930's according to the 7th edition of Bergey's Manual (1957) where it was called Paracolobactrum arizonae. Serological similarity with Salmonella was usually a noted feature along with the atypical (for Salmonella) tendencies to ferment lactose and liquefy gelatin. Later names included Arizona arizonae, Arizona hinshawii and Salmonella arizonae before being completely absorbed into the modern Salmonella scheme as two of the recognized subspecies.
