A retrospective chart review was performed on 92 patients from whom 118 isolates of Aerococcus sanguinicola (n = 52) or Aerococcus urinae (n = 66) were obtained from urine cultures between October 2007 and June 2008 to assess clinical presentation and antimicrobial susceptibilities. The mean patient age was 82 (range 24-101) years. The majority was female (76% and 87% for A. sanguinicola and A. urinae, respectively) and institutionalized (61% and 60%, respectively). The majority of male… CONTINUE READING
