Abstract

13 of 54 blood culture isolates taken from HIV+ septicemic patients during the 6 years-period 1986-92 were found to contain coagulase-negative Staphylococci - CNS - (24%). Longer hospitalization and lower mean CD4 count (72/mmc), were the factors which resulted in being associated with CNS bacteremia. 77% of patients were full-blown AIDS. 40% of CNS isolates were resistant to rifampicin and/or oxacillin.
