Abstract:

This chapter on the genus is a review and update of basic topics of interest to clinical microbiologists, such as taxonomy, epidemiology, isolation, and identification procedures and antimicrobial susceptibility testing. It includes all new validated species proposed since the 10th edition and any new sources of infection, as well as the latest recommendations for the appropriate antimicrobials to be tested and the appropriate CLSI guidelines.
