Abstract

Abstract: Antimicrobial resistance to Enterococcus faecium has been an increasing problem in the hospital setting. This case report describes a patient with multidrug-resistant E. faecium bacteremia that was nonsusceptible to daptomycin. At this time, there are only a limited number of reports in the literature; a review of these articles, including in vitro and in vivo findings, is discussed.
