Abstract

spp. are a leading cause of bloodstream infection (BSI) and are associated with high mortality rates. Biofilm production is a virulence factor of spp., and has been linked with poor clinical outcome. The aim of our study was to assess biofilm production of bloodstream isolates at our institute, and to determine whether biofilm production is associated with any clinical characteristics of infection. During the four-year study period, 93 cases of BSI were analysed. The most frequently isolated species was (66.7 %), followed by (9.7 %), (9.7 %), (9.7 %) and (4.3 %). Biofilm production was more prevalent among non spp. (77.4 %) than (30.6 %) ( = 0.02). Abdominal surgery was identified as a risk factor of BSI caused by biofilm producing non- isolates. No risk factors predisposing to bloodstream infection caused by a biofilm producing isolate were identified. Biofilm production was not verified as a risk factor of mortality.
