Krankheiten durch Erreger der Mimea-Herellea-Gruppe

  • O. Gsell
Part of the Infektionskrankheiten book series (INNEREN)


Es handelt sich um eine Gruppe weitgehend ähnlicher, gramnegativer, kulturell anspruchsloser Bakterien, deren Nomenklatur und systematische Zugehörigkeit verschieden und inkomplett beurteilt werden, die oft als Saprophyten gelten, aber zunehmend einerseits als direkte Ursache lokaler Infekte (Conjunctivitis, Urethritis), anderseits als meist sekundäre Erreger allgemeiner infektiöser Krankheitsbilder (Meningitis, Pneumonie, Endokarditis, Sepsis) isoliert werden und damit auch im Problem des Hospitalismus eine Rolle spielen.
