Neisseria
Gram negative non-motile pyogenic cocci. Two species are serious pathogens, N. meningitidis (see meningitis) and N. gonorrhoeae. The latter associates specifically with urinogenital epithelium through surface pili. Both species seem to evade the normal consequences of attack by phagocytes.
