Studies have shown that Capnocytophaga
bacteremia is associated with severe oral pathology and neutropenia, which can also result in abscess, fulminant sepsis, lung abscess, endocarditis, and meningitis [9-12].
canimorsus septicemia: fifth report of a catassociated infection and five other cases.
canimorsus is the main human pathogen associated with dog bites; this organism causes septicemia, meningitis, endocarditis, and rare ocular infections (3,4).
Another pathogen that likewise causes severe [ILLEGIBLE TEXT] infection in hosts with elevated iron is Capnocytophaga
Although rare, the bacteria Capnocytophaga
canis, which occurs naturally in dogs' mouths and is estimated to be in up to 70% of dogs, can be transmitted to humans through bites, scratches, or licks that come into contact with open wounds or mucous membranes.
germs can spread to people through bites, scratches, or close contact from a dog or cat and may cause illness, including sepsis," the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (https://www.cdc.gov/capnocytophaga/index.html) said.
An emerging zoonotic cause of sepsis, endocarditis, and meningitis is Capnocytophaga
canimorsus, a Gram (-) bacterium first named in 1989.
canimorsus is a gram-negative, rod-shaped, usually commensal bacteria of dog and cat oral flora that causes rare but potentially severe infections in humans (1,2).
When he was eventually taken to the hospital, doctors found he had contracted a rare blood infection caused by capnocytophaga
bacteria that are commonly found in the saliva of cats and dogs and that rarely lead to people getting sick.
Doctors diagnosed Manteufel with a rare blood infection caused by Capnocytophaga
canimorsus, which is commonly found in the saliva of most healthy dogs and is usually not harmful to humans, the Post reported.
Jaco, of Chorlton, Manchester, developed sepsis after a rare reaction to Capnocytophaga
canimorsus, carried by up to three-quarters of dogs.
Others are facultative anaerobes such as Capnocytophaga
, Eikenella, Neisseria, among others.
