INTRODUCTION: The aim of this prospective single-center study was to determine the changings in incidence of invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD), serotype distribution and the antimicrobial resistance patterns of S. pneumoniae in children with IPD after the period (1 to 7 years) of vaccination with PCV7 (2008) and PCV13 (2011). POPULATION AND METHODS: The study was conducted on 39 Turkish children with IPD between ages 1 month and 18 years in Ankara, Turkey. Streptococcus pneumoniae was identified using standard laboratory procedures from blood, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), pleural fluid, and other sterile body fluids and tissues...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the predominant genotypes of outer membrane porin I (PI) and to determine the correlation between G120 as well as A121 mutations in PI proteins and drug resistance in Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolates in the local area. METHODS: A double PCR to simultaneously detect both pIA and pIB genes, was established in this study. The target amplification products were T-A cloned and then sequenced to determine the mutations at G120, A121 and the specificity of double PCR...

Nasopharyngeal carriage of Streptococcus pneumoniae plays an important role for the development of invasive disease and the spread of resistant strains within the community. The aims of this study were to determine the carriage rate of nasopharyngeal S. pneumoniae at healthy school children, to search the susceptibility of the strains to various antibiotics and to evaluate the risk factors for nasopharyngeal carriage of penicillin-resistant pneumococci. A total of 1440 healthy children (age range: 6-13 years old) attending to three primary schools which were chosen randomly in Mersin province (Mediterranean region of Turkey) were included to the study between April 2003 to March 2004...

Emergence and dissemination of multiresistant strain of Proteus mirabilis have made infections treatment more difficult that this bacterium is responsible. The aim of this study is to determine the implication of the enzymatic mechanism and to describe the properties of ESBLs (extended spectrum beta-lactamases). A clinical strain of Proteus mirabilis SM514 isolated in the intensive care unit at the Military hospital in Tunisia during the period 2004 was found to be highly resistant to cephalosporins and penicilins...

Hepatitis is a rare clinical manifestation of syphilis. In this report a 50 years old male patient who was diagnosed as secondary syphilis presenting with hepatitis has been discussed. The patient was admitted to the hospital with high fever and skin rash, and his history revealed a suspected sexual contact. He indicated that he had been admitted to a health center eight months ago because of the presence of a penile wound, however VDRL (Venereal Disease Research Laboratory) test was negative at that time. Fever (39...

The genus Ruminococcus which are anaerobe Gram positive cocci, previously classified as Peptostreptococcus, may colonize the upper respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract, vagina and skin of humans and animals. In this report a case of liver abscess and a case of infective endocarditis caused by Ruminoccocus productus, which is very rarely encountered in the clinical practice were presented. The first case was a 32 years old male who was admitted to the hospital in 2002, with the complaints of fever lasting for 20 days and pain while breathing...

Antibiotic resistance in Streptococcus pneumoniae has become an important issue in the last years. Penicillin resistance rates vary among countries and among different regions in countries. It is important to know penicillin resistance rates among isolates, in planning empirical antimicrobial therapy in pneumococcal infections. In this study, the antibiotic resistance rates of S. pneumoniae strains isolated from sterile body sites were investigated with both E-test and disc diffusion methods for penicillin, erythromycin, levofloxacin, and with only disc diffusion method for chloramphenicol, ceftriaxone, vancomycin, rifampin, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX), clindamycin, and tetracycline...

The prevalence of gonococcal infections among sexually transmitted infections is decreasing particularly in developed countries, but the increase in antimicrobial resistance of Neisseria gonorrhoeae is an emerging issue. There is lack of data about the epidemiology and the resistance pattern of the pathogen in our country. Gonococcal infections are recently included among the reportable diseases in Turkey. The specific laboratory tests are difficult, expensive and seldomly used for diagnosis in our country...
