Abstract:

Diabetic foot infections (DFIs) is a chronic form of diabetes mellitus (DM) associated with a high economic and social problem worldwide. Approximately 60% of these amputations is preceded by the presence of infected ulcers. Recently, Enterococci, mainly Entrococcus feacalis (E. faecalis), is considered one of the most frequent microorganisms isolated from hospital associated infections in in many parts of the world. The aim of this manuscript is to provide a present concept review on the history of infections, virulence genes, identification and antimicrobial resistance of E. faecalis isolated from patients suffering from diabetic foot infections which are considered the most thoughtful and common problems encountered in patients with diabetes mellitus. A literature review on E. faecalis with emphasis on history of diseases, virulence genes, anti-microbial resistance and identification methods has been carried out in details.
