We collected 705 isolates of enterococci (1 per patient) from cultures of a variety of anatomic sites from patients at eight tertiary-care hospitals in six geographic regions of the United States. A total of 632 (90%o) Enterococcusfaecalis, 58 (8%) E. faecium, 5 E. gaUinarum, 4 E. avium, 3 E. casseliflavus, 1 E. raffinosus, and 1 E. hitae isolate and 1 biochemical variant of E. faecalis were identified; 606 (86%) of these isolates were associated with clinical infections. The most common sites… CONTINUE READING
