Hey there, I'm C. freundii.
I'm a Gram negative bacteria in the enterobacteriaceae family.
I'm part of tribe 4, the Citrobacter tribe.
My cousin C. diversus and I like to hang around hospitals.
We cause nosocomial (hospital) pneumonia
In infants, we like to cause pneumonia and sometimes meningitis.
In the community, we cause urinary tract infections.
