Haemolytic Rhodococcus equi isolated from a swine lymph node with granulomatous lesions.

Abstract

Rhodococcus equi is generally thought to be non-haemolytic although some earlier investigations reported minor haemolytic activity. A case of a haemolytic R. equi isolate from a swine lymph node with granulomatous lesions is described. This is a new contribution to knowledge of the cultural properties of R. equi.
