Abstract

SUMMARY

Eight isolates of micrococci from the 15100(181163111 of six patients obtained under circumstances suggesting a pathogenic role were studied in detail. The organisms were remarkably uniform in cultural, biochemical and antibiotic-susceptibility characters. All strains showed high resistance to methicillin and hydrolysed arginine. The characters found did not correspond with those of any hitherto described species, but were closest to
