Drug-resistant strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae have now been reported from all continents and have become the predominant pathogens in some areas; many strains are resistant to multiple agents. Because of the importance of pneumococci in the etiology of meningitis, the criteria used to assess susceptibility are conservative: strains with minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of penicillin G of less than or equal to 0.06 microgram/mL are regarded as susceptible, those with MICs of 0.1-1… CONTINUE READING
