THE MOST RECENT DATA FROM THE National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Neonatal Research Network revealed that in late-onset sepsis events in very low birth weight neonates proven by blood culture, 70 percent were caused by Gram-positive organisms. Coagulase-negative staphylococci accounted for 68 percent of these Gram-positive infections, and Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus species, and Group B Streptococcus were isolated in the remainder.1Staphylococcus epidermidis continues to be the most common coagulase-negative Staphylococcus species isolated in culture, and S. capitis, S. warneri, S. haemolyticus and S. hominis have also been implicated in neonatal infection.
