Recently vancomycin-resistant and sporadically linezolid-resistant Enterococcus species have been described in adults.

Abstract

Recently vancomycin-resistant and sporadically linezolid-resistant Enterococcus species have been described in adults. We report what we believe to be the first case of a child with prolonged bone marrow aplasia following haematopoietic stem cell transplantation developing a fatal sepsis caused by Enterococcus faecium resistant to glycopeptides and linezolid. © 2010 SGM.
