Corynebacterium diphtheriae

the specific etiologic agent of diphtheria, which also causes skin infections. The organisms are separated according to cultural characteristics into three biovars: mitis, intermedius, and gravis, which apparently are not related to pathogenicity. Most strains produce a potent exotoxin. Called also Klebs-Lцffler bacillus.
