delayed cerebrospinal-fluid shunt infection in children.twelve patients with shunt infection occurring more than 6 months following shunt implantation or revision were identified and their charts reviewed. these cases were accumulated over a 9-year period, and delays from shunt surgery to detection were as long as 11 years. for 5 patients, no antecedent infection or surgery could be identified as a presumptive cause of the shunt infection. propionibacterium species and staphylococcus epidermidis species were the most common organisms identified. the ...19892702349

species distribution of coagulase-negative staphylococcal isolates at a community hospital and implications for selection of staphylococcal identification procedures.a total of 499 coagulase-negative staphylococci (cons) were isolated from a variety of clinical specimens at a community hospital. ten different species and many strains of cons were identified. staphylococcus epidermidis was the most common isolate. the species distribution suggests that s. saprophyticus and, to a lesser extent, s. haemolyticus may be important in urinary tract infections. s. lugdunensis may be a significant isolate from wound infections. frequently, mixed cultures were found w ...19938501235
