- The 3 gram-negative germs belong to the physiological flora, but are optionally pathological in immunosuppression.
- Acinetobacter species are frequently found inguinal, axillary, perineal and interdigital without disease value, but can also lead to sepsis due to secondary wound infection.
- Moraxella can be etiologically significant for the development of eye infections, reactive arthritis and septic vasculitis.
- Branhamella catarrhalis is a trigger of purulent bronchitis.
