BACKGROUND Emergence of high-level aminoglycoside and glycopeptide resistance has significantly contributed to the mortality, particularly in serious enterococcal infections. OBJECTIVES This study was aimed to determine the prevalence of high-level gentamicin resistance (HLGR), high-level streptomycin resistance (HLSR) and vancomycin resistance in enterococcal isolates recovered from patients with bacteremia. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 110 blood culture isolates of enterococci were… CONTINUE READING
