Pseudomonas spp.

Pseudomonas spp. is a genus of Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacteria of the Pseudomonadaceae family. Pseudomonads are aerobic, although some species also grow under anaerobic conditions.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Pseudomonas stutzeri are important human pathogens of this species. They may trigger catheter-associated urinary tract infection, infection of the lower respiratory tract, wound infection, or sepsis. Pseudomonas spp. frequently cause nosocomial infections.

Transmission mainly occurs via contaminated water and food respectively.
