Cox·i·el·la bur·ne·ti·i

a bacterial species that causes Q fever in humans; it is more resistant than other rickettsiae and may be passed in aerosols as well as in living vectors. Acute pneumonia and chronic endocarditis are also associated with this species. The type species of the genus Coxiella.

Coxiella burnetii

a gram-negative bacterium that grows preferentially in the vacuoles of the host cell and causes Q fever. It is distributed globally. Humans are very susceptible to infection, and the infectious dose may be very low. Also called Rickettsia burnetii.
