This colony topography of M. tuberculosis is reflective of its lipid content, which imparts a hydrophobic aspect to colonies. In liquid media, growth occurs in the form of granules, composed of strands (cords) of interwoven bacilli. One commonly used automated liquid media system uses 14C-labelled palmitic acid which is metabolized by mycobacteria releasing radioactively labelled 14CO2 which is detected and quantitated, rendering a growth index. An index greater than or equal to 10 is considered positive.
Lower body temperature in extremity favors growth of this species strains have been linked to a cholera-like diarrhea associated with a serogically cross-reactive cholera toxin-like enterotoxin. Dysenteric-like diarrhea has also been associated with A. hydrophila. Aeromonas species produce a wide range of exoenzymes, including proteases, such as elastase, thought to play a major role in cutaneous infections, septicemia, and pulmonary disease. Bacteremic aeromonads are serum-resistant. Wound infections in normal and compromised patients are fairly common in association with fresh water trauma and can range from cellulitis to ecthyma gangrenosum.
