 The PHLS in Uppsala needs help with identification of a very 
 fastidious organism possibly a member of the alpha subgroup:
 
 "From the plasma of a patient with peaks of high fever 41.5C 
 three times per day has a motile bacterium been isolated on cell 
 cultures.
 Partial 16S rDNA sequences indicate a high homology with genera 
 like Sphingomonas, Methylobacterium, Caulobacter or Nitrobacter. 
 Our question is has anyone tested this kind of bacteria for 
 antibiotic susceptibility ?"
 
 Any suggestions are welcome.
