Corynebacterium jeikeium

I'm C. jeikeium.
I'm a Gram Positive rod.
I can't make spores and I have an irregular shape.

I live on your skin.
When I get into prosthetics or metal pieces I set up shop and have a party.
I also cause septicaemia and endocarditis.
I got my name because I was part of a group of bacteria called "JK".
