Atopobium parvulum (strain ATCC 33793 / DSM 20469 / JCM 10300 / VPI 0546) is a non-motile and obligate anaerobic Gram-positive bacterium. A.parvulum is of high interest because it is frequently isolated from the human oral cavity, especially from the tongue dorsum, where it is associated with patients suffering from halitosis (oral malodor). It is not found to be significantly associated with chronic periodontitis, though a participation in periodontitis can not be fully excluded. Nevertheless, it is associated with odontogenic infections, e.g. dental implants, but also with the saliva of healthy subjects. A. parvulum is susceptible to chloramphenicol, clindamycin, erythromycin, penicillin G, and tetracycline. It produces acid (final pH < 4.7) from cellobiose, esculin, fructose, galactose, glucose, inulin, lactose, maltose, mannose, salicin, sucrose, and trehalose; erythritol and xylose are weakly fermented.
