Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We describe three cases of non-toxigenic Corynebacterium diptheriae infection in immunocompetent adults. The strains were isolated and identified as C. diptheriae, their toxin minus status and biotype (gravis) was confirmed by the reference laboratory. Our report confirms the increasing importance of non-toxigenic C. diptheriae strains as causes of disease in immunocompetent individuals. A review of recent cases in Scotland provides further justification for continued surveillance of this organism.
