ABSTRACT: Enterococci are commonly encountered pathogens in our laboratory. However penicillin resistance among them is not as high as is recorded in western literature or as it is reported from elsewhere in India. Between January and June 1996, 10.2 percent of Enterococci from urine cultures were penicillin resistant. Representative resistant strains were speciated and penicillin and ampicillin resistance was studied.
