    Gram negative bacteria as possible etiological agents in respiratory diseases and syndromes associated with heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and humidifying systems are reviewed. A case study of an outbreak of hypersensitivity pneumonitis possibly linked with a gram negative bacterium, Cytophaga, is presented, and sampling and culturing procedures for the enumeration, isolation and identification of gram negative bacteria are discussed.
