Staphylococcal pathogens of chronic relapsing infections, such as cystic pneumosclerosis and osteomyelitis are characterized by atypical morphology of the colonies (atypical variants of staphylococci) and present a subpopulation in clinically significant staphylococci. Since the loss of some phenotypic characteristics important for the genus Staphylococcus due to mutations, identification of such staphylococcal variants is difficult and sometimes impossible. An algorithm of identification of… CONTINUE READING
