Three strains of vancomycin-resistant Gram-positive cocci, belonging to the family Streptococcaceae, were isolated from patient samples. Two were identified as Leuconostoc species, the other one as Enterococcus (Streptococcus) faecium. The clinical significance of vancomycin-resistant Gram-positive bacteria is discussed.
