Description:This Gram-stained photomicrograph revealed the presence of numerous Gram-positive, Oerskovia turbata bacteria, which can be seen arranged in small clumps, however, as you can see in PHIL 15699, O. turbata bacteria can be seen arranged in chains.
Only rarely is Oerskovia turbata found to be a pathogen to either man, or animals, though it is now classified as an opportunistic human pathogen, which indicates that those with a compromised immune system are most susceptible to O. turbata’s pathogenicity.
