Macrolide resistance in Streptococcus pneumoniae is usually caused by the presence of the erm(B) or mef(A) resistance determinants. The aim of the present study was to identify the predominant macrolide resistance mechanisms among erythromycin-resistant S. pneumoniae isolated in a university hospital, Ankara, Turkey. A total of 669 S. pneumoniae strains were isolated from clinical specimens of patients admitted to the hospital between 1994--2002. The minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of… CONTINUE READING
