Abstract:

Enteroccocci are bacteria that are normally present in the human intestines and are often found in the environment. Recently there is an increase in prevalence of Multidrug resistance and other hospital strains like Vancomycin resistant Enterococcus and Linezolid resistant Enterococcus.  Enterococci isolated from clinical samples were identified by standard phenotypic methods and susceptibility testing by Disc diffusion method.  E.fecalis was common species constitute 80%. Majority of the isolates were multidrug resistant strains. Low resistance was observed against Vancomycin, Teicopalanin and Linezolid. Drug resistance has significantly varies with the different methods in detection of resistance. MIC detection can help in confirming the resistance.
