Turicella otitidis and Corynebacterium auris: 20 years on


von Graevenitz, A; Funke, G (2014). Turicella otitidis and Corynebacterium auris: 20 years on. Infection, 42(1):1-4.

Abstract

Turicella otitidis and Corynebacterium auris, described as new species 20 years ago, have been isolated mainly from the external ear canal and middle ear fluid. While their taxonomic position has been clearly established, their diagnosis in the routine laboratory is difficult. The question of their pathogenic potential in otitis is still open but might be elucidated better if corynebacteria are speciated more often.
