Abstract

Through a CAMP test, we first observed a Staphylococcus delphini strain (ATCC 49172) to release β-haemolysin. Production of the latter in this coagulase-positive species of the 'Staphylococcus intermedius Group,' in fact, has been labeled to be undetermined, thus far. Of course, a wider number of strains have to be investigated in order to define whether this property is constitutive (like in Staphylococcus (pseud)intermedius), or strain-dependent (like in Staphylococcus aureus), and which clinical impact it has; nevertheless, we can state that S. delphini ATCC 49172 indeed produces this toxin.
