                  Abstract

                  Coagulase-negative staphylococci are known to be frequently isolated from clinical specimens and represent the most common cause of bacteraemias in hospitalized patients. Particularly, venous catheter-related bloodstream infections are often due to non-aureus staphylococci. These are opportunistic pathogens in immunocompromised hosts and may behave as reservoirs of antibiotic resistance determinants.1
