What is important to know about Pseudomallei group in prescribing antibiotics?
ALL resist
-Polymyxin B and Colistin
-were previously Pseudomonas but now are Burkholderia.
What are the three members of the Pseudomallei group?

The common nonfermentors are:
#1=Pseudomonas aeruginosa
#2=Acinetobacter baumannii
#3=Stenotrophomonas maltophilia
What are distinctive characteristics of Stenotrophomonas?
-Smells like ammonia!
-Oxidizes Maltose/Glucose
What is the distinctive characteristic of Shewanella putrefaciens?
-Only NF GNB to produce H2S
What are the 2 species of acinetobacter?
Acinetobacter lwoffii
Acinetobacter baumannii
What distinguishes both acinetobacter species?
-Oxidase neg
Which 3 NF GNB are normal flora and where?
-Acinetobacter - vagina
-Moraxella - mouth/GI tract
-Eikenella - mouth/GI tract
How are the acinetobacters different?
Baumannii oxidizes glucose
Lwoffi doesn't oxidize at all
Are moraxella cocci?
NO; they are true bacilli, but coccobacilli.
What is the yellow nf GNB?
Chryseobacterium meningosepticum
Where does Eikenella corrodens often cause infections?
in human bite wounds b/c it's normal flora in mouth.
what does c. meningosepticum cause?
nosocomial neonatal meningitis.
Which 2 nf GNB are oxidase neg?
Which nf GNB don't oxidize glucose?
-bordetella bronchiseptica
-eikenella corrodens
acronym for the non glucose oxidizers:
morax, alcal, bordatll, eik,
Which nf GNB oxidize maltose?
1. Ps. stutzeri
2. Burkholderia cepacia
3. Stenotrophomonas
4. Chyrseobacterium meningos.
(Acinetobacter baum. varies)
Which species doesn't do ANYTHING? Except...
Acinetobacter lwoffi - only grows on MAC and is GNCB
Which nf GNB are coccobacilli?
Which nf GNB oxidize lactose?
-Burkholderia cepacia
-Stenotrophomonas MIGHT
which nf GNB does EVERYTHING? what doesn't it do?
Burkholderia cepacia
-no specific morphology.
Which nf GNB doesn't grow on MAC?
-Eikenella corrodens

Which pseudomonas is yellow?
which pseudomonas is wrinkly?
How do you tell P. putida and stutzeri apart?
Putida = gelatin +
Stutzeri = gelatin -

-Both are pos oxidase
-Both neg on all carbs
-Ekenella doesn't grow on MAC
-Eikenella isn't motile
Which nf GNB is urea pos?
Bordetella bronchiseptica
Which nf GNB is yellow?
