Cardiobacteriaceae, within the order, Cardiobacteriales, in the class, Gammaproteobacteria, was described as a novel family, based upon the 16S rRNA sequence-based relationships of Cardiobacterium hominis, Dichelobacter nodosus, and Suttonella indologenes, representing distinct lineages within a common phylogenetic cluster. The two species of Cardiobacterium, one species of Dichelobacter, and two species of Suttonella are Gram-negative, rod-shaped, fastidious, facultatively anaerobic, strictly anaerobic or microaerophilic chemoorganotrophs, manifesting pathogenicity in humans and animals. Strains of the species are isolated from human and animal samples. C. hominis, C. valvarum, and S. indologenes are typically recovered from the blood cultures of patients with endocarditis. D. nodosus is a causative agent for foot-rot disease in cloven-hoofed animals, and S. ornithocola is implicated in pulmonary necrosis in birds of the tit family. Rarely are bacteria of the Cardiobacteriaceae detected in nonclinical samples. © 2014 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. All rights are reserved.
