What Is Cloaca Cloacae?

Cloaca Cloacaae is a bacteria that is found in water, soil, sewage, and food. It also tends to contaminate many different kinds of medical, intravenous, and hospital devices. Outbreaks of this bacteria have been connected with surgical equipment and related cleaning solutions. It was first named as Cloaca Cloacae in 1919, although it was first described in 1890.

Symptoms of Cloaca Cloacae

Cloaca Cloacae can lead to experiencing a number of symptoms, usually when coming into contact with something contaminated with the bacteria. The major symptoms are generally the following:
⦁ Blood poisoning
⦁ Skin inflammation
⦁ Respiratory inflammation
⦁ Internal organ inflammation
⦁ Urinary tract infection
⦁ Eye infection
⦁ Endocarditis
⦁ Pneumonia
⦁ Septicaemia
⦁ Wound infection
⦁ Meningitis in newborns


Before treatment can occur, this bacteria must be identified as inhabiting the body. This is done using tests conducted that look for the bacteria within the blood, bone marrow, and other bodily fluids. Additionally, a blood test may also be conducted to identify antibodies that exist against the bacteria. After identifying the bacteria within the body, antibiotics will be prescribed to use against the bacteria. The recovery time will usually last a few weeks.


Given the vast prevalence of Cloaca Cloacae, it is challenging to fully prevent becoming infected with this bacteria. However, you can take precautionary steps to avoid getting infected by avoiding direct, or event indirect, contact with anyone or anything that is contaminated. This bacteria can even be transmitted by infusion solutions and blood products, so ensuring those solutions and products are free from bacteria is important.

Since it may be challenging to know whether a person or thing is contaminated with Cloaca Cloacae, the best way to prevent infection is to apply proper sanitation methods when touching suspect people and things. This means you should follow appropriate sanitizing procedures after coming into contact with anyone or anything that may seem as if it is infected.

Taking these steps will help ensure that this dangerous bacteria will not infect you.


Currently, antibiotics are the most successful method of curing Cloaca Cloacae infections. However, this bacteria tends to develop resistance, which is why two antibiotics need to be prescribed and taken simultaneously. For more severe infections, antibiotics must be delivered intravenously one every 6-8 hours, until fever dissipates. After that, antibiotics can be administered orally. When there is just a mild infection, you can be cured by orally taking an antibiotic every 6-8 hours for two weeks.
