Bordetella

brief description

Bordetella species are non-spore-forming encapsulated bipolar, coccoid (pale-staining) Gram-negative bacilli (about 0.3-0.5 mm thick and 1 mm long). The genus consists of the human parasites B. pertussis and B. parapertussis, and B. bronchiseptica which causes enzootic infections in various wild and domestic animal species. Bordetella pertussis produces a single disease syndrome in man known as pertussis of whooping cough. It is a highly contagious childhood disease (appr. 80% of cases occur before the age of 5 years) which is transmitted by respiratory contact and is associated with a high mortality rate (about 1-2% in the first year of life, lateron about 1%o). In the absence of immunization, essentially no one escapes pertussis.
