The Genus Actinobacillus

  • James E. Phillips


Organisms of the genus Actinobacillus were first described by Lignières and Spitz (1902) in actinomycotic lesions in cattle in Argentina. The authors referred to this organism as “l’actinobacille” based on its morphology and its association with the pathological lesion. In 1910, Brumpt proposed the name of Actinobacillus lignieresii.
