ABSTRACT: Since the early 1980s, there has been a shift in the typical pathogen isolated from the febrile granulocytopenic patient, from Gram-negative bacilli to Gram-positive cocci, especially coagulase negative staphylococci and alpha - hemolytic streptococci. Methicillin resistant staphylococci and penicillin resistant streptococci are increasingly being reported. Other emerging pathogens include penicillin - resistant pneumococci, vancomycin - resistant enterococci and multiply resistant Gram-negative bacteria.
