Staphylococcus epidermidis normally is a commensal inhabitant of the healthy human skin and mucosa, but also a common nosocomial pathogen in immunocompromised patients. Living at the edge between commensalism and pathogenicity, S. epidermidis has developed interesting strategies to conquer the hospital environment as a novel ecological niche and to transform into a notorious pathogen. Recent progress in genome analysis and molecular epidemiology gave interesting insights into the enormous… CONTINUE READING
