Rod-shaped bacteria (bacilli)

Corynebacterium ulcerans



Curved, straight or bean-shaped: bacilli come in many variants and are widely spread.

Corynebacterium ulcerans is a Gram-positive, rod-shaped bacterium of the Corynebacteriaceae family.

The bacterium is closely related to the human pathogen Corynebacterium diphtheriae and may elicit diphtheria-like symptoms by producing the diphtheria toxin.

Transmission mainly occurs via droplets or particles in the air.
