Bacteria are single-celled prokaryotic microorganisms of small size and different shapes. They are present everywhere and are vital to the ecosystem. Many are beneficial to health, but a relatively small number of bacterial species, approximately 200, cause disease in both humans and animals. Treatment is with antibiotics, but some of them, due to their adaptive capacity, can generate resistance to these drugs. Antibiotic resistance is currently one of the biggest threats to global health, causing millions of deaths annually. If the infection is not treated, it can spread to the bloodstream, causing bacteremia. The diagnosis of bacterial diseases can be made by culture and microscopy, biochemical and metabolic tests, serological tests for detection of antibodies or antigens, or by molecular diagnosis.
