  • Migratory Polyarthralgias and Skin Rash: Rat Bite Fever with a Positive Anti-Cyclic Citrullinated Peptide. [Case Reports]
    Mayo Clin Proc Innov Qual Outcomes. 2020 Apr; 4(2):223-227.Shadrin IY, Albitar AAH, … Wilson WR
  • Rat bite fever is a rare, underdiagnosed disease caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis in the United States, and is typically characterized by leukocytosis, elevated C-reactive protein, migratory polyarthralgias, and pustular skin rash. Rat bite fever is frequently misdiagnosed as either a viral illness or a rheumatologic disease and carries a high mortality risk if untreated. We report the firs…
  • Streptobacillus canis sp. nov. isolated from a dog. [Journal Article]
    Int J Syst Evol Microbiol. 2020 Mar 25 [Online ahead of print]Eisenberg T, Heydel C, … Ewers C
  • From a phlegmon in a dog an aerobic and facultatively anaerobic, indole-, oxidase- and catalase-negative, non-motile bacterium was isolated in 2019 in Germany that stained Gram-negative and showed a pleomorphic, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming appearance. Based on the results of 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses, strain IHIT1603-19T was assigned to the genus Streptobacillus with sequence similarities…
  • Near-fatal Periprosthetic Infection with Streptobacillus moniliformis: Case and Review. [Case Reports]
    J Bone Jt Infect. 2020; 5(1):50-53.Smallbones M, Monem M, … Sofat R
  • Case presentation of a 66 year old female with penicillin hypersensitivity, who suffered late acute periprosthetic infection of her total knee replacement. After emergency surgery and admission to intensive care, the responsible organism was later identified as Streptobacillus moniliformis. This serves as the first documented case of Streptobacillus moniliformis prosthetic joint infection. As sta…
  • A rare cause of vertebral osteomyelitis: the first case report of rat-bite fever in Portugal. [Case Reports]
    Rev Soc Bras Med Trop. 2019; 53:e20190328.Pena E, Jordão S, … Neves I
  • Rat-bite fever is a rarely diagnosed illness caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis . Although this disease is distributed worldwide, there have been few cases reported in Europe. Here, we report a case of vertebral osteomyelitis and sternoclavicular septic arthritis caused by S. moniliformis in a Portuguese patient previously bitten by a rat. Laboratory diagnosis was performed using molecular id…
  • Bacterial species to be considered in quality assurance of mice and rats. [Review]
    Lab Anim. 2019 Jun; 53(3):281-291.Hansen AK, Nielsen DS, … Hansen CHF
  • Bacteria are relevant in rodent quality assurance programmes if (a) the animals are at risk and (b) presence in the animals makes a difference for animal research or welfare, for example because the agent regulates clinical disease progression or impacts its host in other ways. Furthermore, zoonoses are relevant. Some bacterial species internationally recommended for the health monitoring of rats…
  • Rat bite fever on Vancouver Island: 2010-2016. [Journal Article]
    Can Commun Dis Rep. 2018 Sep 06; 44(9):215-219.Hryciw BN, Wright CP, Tan K
  • CONCLUSIONS: This is the largest single case series of RBF in Canada. Diagnosis requires a high index of suspicion by clinicians and early intervention is necessary to prevent morbidity and mortality.
  • Rat-Bite Fever in Human with Streptobacillus notomytis Infection, Japan. [Case Reports]
    Emerg Infect Dis. 2018 08; 24(7):1377-1379.Ogawa Y, Kasahara K, … Mikasa K
  • We report a case of rat-bite fever in a 94-year-old woman with Streptobacillus notomytis infection. We established an epidemiologic link between exposure to rats and human infection by performing nested PCRs that detected S. notomytis in the intraoral swab specimens obtained from rats captured in the patient's house.
  • Clinical infection in house rats (Rattus rattus) caused by Streptobacillus notomytis. [Journal Article]
    Antonie Van Leeuwenhoek. 2018 Oct; 111(10):1955-1966.Michel V, Ulber C, … Eisenberg T
  • Rat bite fever is an under-reported, under-diagnosed emerging zoonosis with worldwide distribution. Besides Spirillum minus, Streptobacillus moniliformis is the major causative microorganism although it usually colonises rats without any clinical signs. A group of house rats (Rattus rattus) kept in a zoo exhibition for educational purposes suffered from neurological signs including disorientation…
  • [Infections after bite wounds : For example rat bite fever due to Streptobacillus moniliformis]. [Journal Article]
    Unfallchirurg. 2018 Sep; 121(9):764-768.Hof H, Binder R, … Bode K
  • Rat bite fever due to Streptobacillus moniliformis induces typical but not pathognomonic clinical signs, such as local purulent wound infection followed by maculopapular exanthema, myalgia as well as purulent joint infections. Severe complications, such as osteomyelitis and endocarditis are possible. it seems that this infection is rarely diagnosed but this infection could be much more common bec…
  • Rat-bite fever due to Streptobacillus notomytis isolated from a human specimen. [Case Reports]
    J Infect Chemother. 2018 Apr; 24(4):302-304.Fukushima K, Yanagisawa N, … Imamura A
  • Rat-bite fever (RBF) is a disease that usually presents with fever, arthralgia and skin rash. Streptobacillus moniliformis was considered the main cause of RBF among the genus Streptobacillus. Although with similar clinical presentation, RBF due to Streptobacillus notomytis is unusual in humans. To the best of our knowledge, we present a case involving the first isolate of S. notomytis in humans.…
  • [Rat bite fever in a three-year-old child]. [Case Reports]
    Ugeskr Laeger. 2017 Aug 14; 179(33)Marmolin ES, Lis-Tønder J, … Grosen D
  • Rat bite fever (RBF) is rare in Denmark. It can be very difficult to diagnose, as the causative agent is an extremely fastidious organism which needs microaerophilic conditions to grow. We report a case of arthritis in the right ankle due to Streptobacillus moniliformis in a three-year-old girl who fully recovered after 14-day treatment of intravenous administrated penicillin followed by four wee…
  • StatPearls: Rat-bite Fever (Streptobacillus moniliformis, Sodoku, Spirillum Minor) [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL)Gupta M, Bhansali RK, … Oliver TIBOOK
  • Rat-bite fever, also known as streptobacillosis, spirillary fever, bogger, and epidemic arthritic erythema, is a zoonotic illness, which is manifested by acute relapsing fever with migratory polyarthralgia. It is transmitted from rodents to humans either by rodent urine or from mucosal secretions. It is a rare disease and can be caused by two kinds of bacteria namely  Spirillum minus and Streptob…
  • Streptobacillus moniliformis Bacteremia in a Pet Shop Employee: Case Report and Literature Review. [Case Reports]
    Open Forum Infect Dis. 2017 Spring; 4(2):ofx038.Suzuki K, Hirai Y, … Naito T
  • A 39-year-old pet shop employee who sustained a bite from one of his store's rats developed fever and arthritis. Streptobacillus moniliformis was cultured from the patient's blood, confirming a diagnosis of rat-bite fever. Treatment with standard antibiotics was successful. Although rat-bite fever is commonly considered a zoonosis transmitted by wild or laboratory rats, our case emphasizes that i…
  • A bacterial ABC transporter enables import of mammalian host glycosaminoglycans. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep. 2017 04 21; 7(1):1069.Oiki S, Mikami B, … Hashimoto W
  • Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), such as hyaluronan, chondroitin sulfate, and heparin, constitute mammalian extracellular matrices. The uronate and amino sugar residues in hyaluronan and chondroitin sulfate are linked by 1,3-glycoside bond, while heparin contains 1,4-glycoside bond. Some bacteria target GAGs as means of establishing colonization and/or infection, and bacterial degradation mechanisms of…
  • A spinal epidural abscess due to Streptobacillus moniliformis infection following a rat bite: case report. [Case Reports]
    J Neurosurg Spine. 2017 Jul; 27(1):92-96.Hammer A, Wolff D, … Bogdan C
  • The authors describe the case of a 40-year-old man suffering from an epidural abscess in the thoracic spine due to a rarely isolated pathogen, Streptobacillus moniliformis, the causative agent of rat bite fever. Besides diffuse abdominal pain, ataxia, paresthesia, hypesthesia, and enhanced reflexes of the lower extremities, the patient suffered from a decreased sensation of bladder filling. His h…
