I. Organism Information

A. Taxonomy Information

1. Genus

a. Haemophilus

i. Taxonomy ID: 724

ii. Description:

Haemophilus is a genus of Gram-negative, pleomorphic, coccobacilli bacteria (1). Haemophilus bacteria are typically small coccobacilli, they are categorized as pleomorphic bacteria because of the wide range of shapes they can assume. The genus includes obligate parasites and commensal organisms. Some significant, pathogenic strains area H. influenzae, a cause of sepsis and bacterial meningitis in young children, and H. ducreyi, the causative agent of chancroid. All members are either aerobic or facultatively anaerobic. A group of organisms that are either obligate parasites or commensa lorganisms found in animal mucous membranes. Almost all Haemophilus species need important growth factors from their hosts, including either heme or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide.
