Haemophilus parasuis is a gram-negative bacillus, responsible for Glässer’s disease, a disease with worldwide distribution characterized by fibrinous polyserositis, polyarthritis, and meningitis in swine. The incidence and prevalence of H. parasuis infection are especially high in developed countries, where it is one of the main causes of lethality and economic loss. This article make a characterization from a molecular perspective of β-Lactam resistance in Haemophilus parasuis.
