Abstract:

Curved and spiral-shaped bacteria have a common microscopic morphology but represent diverse bacterial pathogens. Most bacteria in this group are isolated from patients with gastrointestinal tract-related infections. spp., spp., spp., and spp. are the common species in the gastrointestinal tract. Other species, such as spp., , , and , may be isolated from other sources. The spirochetes spp. and spp. cause systemic infections and may be isolated in the lab with specialized methods. spp. of clinical importance are diagnosed using microscopic, serologic, and molecular methods.
