Abstract:

is a common cause of upper and lower respiratory infections in persons of all ages. Tracheobronchitis is the most common clinical syndrome, but pneumonia commonly occurs and extragenital infections have been described. A review of human disease caused by ( ) contains more detailed information about clinical aspects of infections due to this organism.
