Gram-negative enteric bacilli account for the majority of cases of bacterial shock. The organisms most commonly implicated include Escherichia coli, Klebsiella-Enterobacter, Proteus, Pseudomonas, Bacteroides and Salmonella. In some instances, gram-positive cocci may produce infections which account for bacterial shock. Systemic infection due to Neisseria, Clostridia and infections by organisms other than bacteria, including viruses, rickettsiae, and fungi also occasionally may be complicated by shock.
