Capnocytophaga ochracea

Capnocytophaga ochracea

A gram-negative, microaerophilic, CO2-requiring gliding bacillus, which is found in normal human microflora and an opportunistic pathogen. 

Clinical findings
C ochracea causes sepsis in immunocompromised patients and less severe infections—e.g., endometritis, endocarditis, peritonitis and septic arthritis—in the immunocompetent; sepsis in an immunocompetent patient is a case report rarity.

The following species were also eliminated: Bacteroides uniformis and Parabacteroides distasonis classified as Gram(-) anaerobes; Acinetobacter freundii, Burkholderia cepacia, and Neisseria sicca (Gram(-) aerobe), as well as Staphylococcus epidermidis MSCNS (Gram(+) aerobe), which can cause opportunistic infections, including sepsis.The microflora gained the following species, Gram(+) anaerobes: Atopobium minutum and Clostridium butyricum, Gram(-) anaerobes: Capnocytophaga ochracea and Prevotella melaninogenica, Gram(+) aerobes: Microccus spp.
The number of the following bacteria declined in the control group: Blautia producta, Clostridium clostridiforme, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Capnocytophaga ochracea, and Streptococcus sanguinis, and the number of the following bacteria increased: Actinomyces israelii, Actinomyces naeslundii, Campylobacter gracilis, Streptococcus mitis, Streptococcus salivarium, Escherichia coli, and Neisseria subflava, as well as fungi Candida albicans (Table 5).

(6) Although TEM type beta lactamases are most often found in Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae, they are also found in Enterobacter spp., Salmonella spp., Morganella morganii, Proteus mirabilis, Serratia marcescens, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Shigella dysenteriae, Capnocytophaga ochracea and Citrobacter (7,8,9,10).
Most microorganisms involved in these disease are gramnegative bacilli, anaerobes (Porphyromonas gingivalis, Prevotella intermedia, Fusobacterium nucleatum, Campylobacter rectus) or capnophiles (Aggregatibacterium actinomycetemcomitans, Eikenella corrodens, Capnocytophaga ochracea ...) [3].
