Streptococci are non-motile, Gram-positive cocci with widely varying pathogenic potential that occur in pairs or chains. Streptococcus equi subspecies zooepidemicus, a Lancefield group C Streptococcus (GCS), is primarily an opportunistic pathogen of a wide variety of non-human animal species, including domesticated species such as horses, cows, pigs, sheep, and dogs, and is a pathogen of veterinary concern. It is a well-known cause of mastitis in cows and mares, and is the most frequently isolated opportunistic pathogen of horses. S.equi zooepidemicus rarely causes human invasive infections, which usually originate either from zoonotic transmission from domesticated animals to humans or by ingestion of improperly pasteurized milk or milk products. S.equi subsp. zooepidemicus (strain MGCS10565) was responsible for a virulent outbreak of poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis (PSGN) in Brazil from December 1997 to July 1998 following consumption of cheese made with unpasteurized milk. PSGN, a common cause of preventable kidney disease, is thought to result when antibody-antigen immune complexes become lodged in the kidney glomerulus, triggering proinflammatory immunologic processes, and producing organ injury. Unusually this organism has no prophages (adapted from PubMed 18716664).
