Endocarditis and valve-ring abscess caused by Staphylococcus epidermidis - An opportunistic pathogen keeping pace with progress

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The lowly 'Staph. albus' is coming into its own as an opportunistic pathogen. The opportunism is not related to immunosuppression, but to surgical implantation of foreign materials in some part of the body. Effective chemotherapy of this kind of infection often becomes a complex and difficult problem.
