[Erythromycin resistance of group A beta-hemolytic streptococci isolated from patients with upper respiratory tract infections].

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the erythromycin resistance of group A beta-hemolytic streptococci (GABHS) isolated from throat cultures. GABHS were isolated from 74 (10.4%) throat cultures of 710 patients with upper respiratory tract infections. Penicillin resistance was observed in none of the strains. Of these strains, 4 (5.4%) were found to… (More)
