Abstract:

Obligately anaerobic, Gram-negative rods of clinical relevance belong mainly to the phyla and . Anaerobes are detected typically in polymicrobial infections associated with mucosal surfaces close to the site where they reside; e.g., members of the group are often involved in intra-abdominal infections, with considerable morbidity and mortality. When Gram-negative anaerobes gain entrance to the bloodstream and trigger a systemic inflammatory response, this may result in sepsis or infective endocarditis, with a fatal outcome. Knowledge abou

t the resident microbiota and awareness of their role in disease permit clinicians to anticipate the likely infecting species at different body sites. Considering the current reports of considerable frequencies of anaerobic bacteremia and fusobacterial infections, especially -associated invasive diseases, and increasing rates of resistance of spp. to various antimicrobials, training for anaerobic techniques and introduction of advanced methods for the detection and precise identification of anaerobes are needed in clinical microbiology laboratories. New methods, such as matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization–time of flight (MALDI-TOF) analysis, are increasingly used, but novel Gram-negative anaerobes are rather poorly integrated into the databases. Also, most laboratories neither perform the accurate species-level identification of the isolated organism nor test the susceptibilities of anaerobic isolates. Without knowledge of the local susceptibility patterns, the choice of proper antimicrobial therapy can be hampered and make the treatment outcome of anaerobic infections less predictable.
