Streptococcus

Bryan Applications, S

The round type of bacterium is called a streptococcus when it occurs in chains resembling tiny strings of beads. Streptococci cause many diseased conditions. They are present in spreading inflammations, like erysipelas and cellulitis, in puerperal fever, septicemia, pyemia and many abscesses.

They are also thought to have a possible connection with scarlet fever and acute rheumatism.
