Abstract:

Enterococcus are emerging as an important cause of nosocomial infections and are gaining clinical importance because of multi drug resistance especially the increasing prevalence of Vancomycin Resistant Enterococci (VRE). The present study was conducted in a tertiary care centre in India with the aim to study prevalence of enterococcal infections in various clinical specimens and their antibiotic susceptibility pattern, especially against Vancomycin. A total of 50 isolates of Enterococci were identified from various clinical specimens. Maximum VRE isolates were from urine samples followed by pus and blood. Also, most sensitive drug for VRE was Linezolid. Least sensitivity was seen with Penicillin and Ampicillin.

Keywords: Enterococcal infections, Vancomycin Resistant Enterococci, Linezolid.
