In order to explore the clinical significance and risk factors for true bacteremia caused by coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS) other than Staphylococcus epidermidis, a retrospective cohort study of 160 patients with at least one blood culture positive for non-epidermidis CNS was performed. True bacteremia was diagnosed in 32 (20%) of the patients.
