Cardiobacterium

 [kahr´de-o-bak-tēr´e-um]
a genus of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria that are part of the normal flora of the nose and throat; C. ho´minis is a cause of endocarditis.

Cardiobacterium

(kar'dē-ō-bak-tē'rē-ŭm),
A genus of nonmotile, pleomorphic, gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria found in the nasal flora and associated with endocarditis in humans. The type species is Cardiobacterium hominis.

Cardiobacterium ho´minis  a species that is an etiologic agent of endocarditis.

Cardiobacterium

a gram-negative genus of facultative anaerobic rod-shaped bacteria that is part of the normal flora of the human nasopharynx region. It is associated with endocarditis, causing 5%-10% of cases.

paraphrophilus, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, Cardiobacterium hominis, Eikenella corrodens y Kingella kingae) que son agentes mas raros en la etiologia de endocarditis infecciosa (38,39); asimismo, otros organismos, como hongos, son responsables hasta de 15% de los casos de endocarditis infecciosa de protesis valvulares (39); mientras, los microorganismos del grupo HACEK causan 3% de casos de endocarditis infecciosa adquirida en la comunidad.
In summary, while the endocarditis-associated classic Gram negative bacteria, HACEK (an acronym that refers to Haemophilus species, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, Cardiobacterium hominis, Eikenella corrodens, and Kingella species) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa have been well documented, the emergence of Providencia stuartii as a source of endocarditis has not been established.
It is most commonly associated with a group of gram-negative bacilli collectively known as HACEK (for Hemophilus parainfluenzae, H aphrophilus, Hemophilus paraphrophilus, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, Cardiobacterium hominis, Eikenella corrodens, and Kingella kingae).
Implanted endovascular devices are main cause of endocarditis due to bacteria other than Haemophilus Actinobacillus Cardiobacterium Eikenella and Kingella species (Non-HACEK).
Con esta informacion, se concluye que la El del paciente debio ser ocasionada por un microorganismo de crecimiento dificil como las bacterias del grupo HACEK (Haemophilus influenzae o parainfluenzae, Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, Cardiobacterium hominis, Eikenella corrodens, Kingelia kingae) o por alguno de los hongos, que son mas probables en pacientes inmunocomprometidos, portadores de valvulas protesicas, lineas venosas, dispositivos cardiacos o con falla renal (10).
corrodens is of the HACEK grouping of organisms, the other members being Haemophilus aphrophilus, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, Cardiobacterium hominis, and Kingella kingae.
