    A strain of Klebsiella aerogenes is described which was unable to grow from light inocula on 5% lysed horse blood diagnostic sensitivity test (DST) agar. It was able to grow on DST agar without added horse cells and MacConkey and nutrient agar. Growth on a deficient medium was promoted by sulphonamides and nitrofurantoin as well as by para-amino benzoic acid, para-amino salicylic acid, procaine hydrochloride, thymine, and uracil.
