MICROBIOLOGY

  • Bordetella are small, aerobic Gram-negative coccobacilli.
  • Organisms are fastidious, need special media (such as charcoal blood agar with cephalexin, Regan Lowe or Bordet-Gengou media) for isolation.
  • Species:
    • B. pertussis: most common etiology of whooping cough and exclusively a human pathogen.
    • B. parapertussis: leads to less severe but similar symptoms.
    • B. bronchiseptica (agent of kennel cough)
    • B. holmesii: rarely have been implicated to cause human respiratory disease. May cause sepsis in immunocompromised patients.
    • B. trematum: rarely found in wounds and ear infections.
