Actinomycosis is a subacute-to-chronic bacterial infection caused by filamentous, Gram-positive, non-acid-fast
In fact, these organisms are anaerobic, non-acid-fast
, filamentous, branching bacteria.
Rothia is a genus of Gram-positive, non-acid-fast
bacteria proposed by George and Brown in 1967.
Pathologic examination in cases of actinomycosis usually reveals non-acid-fast
gram-positive organisms with filamentous branching that appear grossly as sulfur granules.
It is caused by Gram-positive, pleomorphic non-spore-forming, non-acid-fast
anaerobic or microaerophilic bacilli of the genus Actinomyces.
It is caused by a non-acid-fast
, non-spore-forming Gram-positive filamentous bacteria.
