Blood cultures revealed Granulicatella adjacens and transthoracic echocardiogram revealed an aortic valve vegetation consistent with endocarditis requiring 6 weeks treatment with intravenous vancomycin.
In particular, it was shown that Neisseria elongata, Corynebacterium spp., and Streptococcus mitis decreased, while Granulicatella adiacens and Porphyromonas gingivalis increased [140, 141].
By this method, many isolates were probably mistakenly identified as alpha-haemolytic Streptococcus or Granulicatella species, especially in the presence of other contaminating flora [19].
