Normal oropharyngeal floraEdit
The name is formed from their initials:
- Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans
- Cardiobacterium hominis
- Eikenella corrodens
All of these organisms are part of the normal oropharyngeal flora which grow slowly, prefer a carbon dioxide rich atmosphere, and share an enhanced capacity to produce endocardial infections, especially in young children.
Actinomyces species that cause human disease do not exist freely in nature but are normal flora of the oropharynx.
