High level gentamicin resistance in enterococcal and streptococcal isolates from blood culture.

The combination of an aminoglycoside with a cell wall active agent is often necessary for the satisfactory management of serious enterococcal and streptococcal infections. High level gentamicin resistance (MIC > 1000 micrograms/ml) eradicates the synergy between these two classes of antibiotics and treatment of these infections becomes difficult. Over a… (More)
