  1. Diphtherie. Isolierung eines endemischen Corynebacterium-diphtheriae-Stammes in Südniedersachen.

    Article - En allemand

    Traduction en anglais : Diphteria: isolation of an endemic Corynebacterium diphteriae strain in southern lower Saxony.

    After decades of only limited epidemiological and clinical importance diphtheria (especially of the upper respiratory tract) is regaining increasing interest of public health officials, as recent case reports in national and international publications clearly demonstrate.

    In March 1993 we observed a case of tracheobronchial Corynebacterium diphtheriae mitis infection in a 66-year old man from the South of Lower Saxony with clinical presentation of mucopurolent exacerbation of chronic bronchitis.

    The C. diphtheriae mitis strain was identified by microbiological and biochemical tests; however, its expression of toxin remains scientifically controversial.
