Rhodococcus equi (previously known as Corynebacterium equi) is a gram positive, obligately aerobic, intracellular coccobacillus that establishes itself in macrophages by interfering lysophagosomal fusion and multiplies within macrophages; lead to formation of granulomas and eventually necrosis (Prescott, 1991).
