Resumen

PALAVECINO R., ELIZABETH. UPDATE ON MICROBIOLOGICAL TOPICS OF ENTEROCOCCI - YEAR 2001: IDENTIFICATION OF SPECIES AND ANTIMICROBIAL SUSCEPTIBILITY TECHNICS. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2001, vol.18, n.2, pp.95-100. ISSN 0716-1018.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-10182001000200003.

In recent years, enterococci have emerged as important pathogens. These organisms are now the third most commonly encountered nosocomial bloodstream infection pathogens in many part of the world. Due to increasing frequency with which multi-drug resistant enterococci are isolated from clinical specimens, there is a need for rapid reporting of results of identification tests and tests for susceptibility testing to antimicrobial agents. In 1999, we published an update of regarding the identification of the different species of enterococci as well as the recommendations for accurately detecting resistance among these isolates. In the current report, we will discuss additional tests for identification of enterococcal species as well as, the current recommendations for susceptibility testing
