Özet

Background: Emergence of high-level aminoglycoside and glycopeptide resistance causes more severe prognosis, higher mortality, and recurrence in enterococcal infections. The present study was conducted to investigate the antimicrobial resistance patterns, prevalence of AMEs, erm and van genes of enterococci isolated from various clinical samples at Istanbul University, Cerrahpasa Medical School hospital.
