Resumen: The susceptibilities of 135 coryneform bacteria isolated from clinical samples to ampicillin (AMP), cephalothin (CR), cefoxitin (FOX), cefotaxime (CTX), erythromycin (E), ciprofioxacin (CIP), tetracycline (TE), amikacin (AK), vancomycin (VA), and rifampin (R) were determined by disk diffusion, broth microdilution, and the E-test. The following species (number of isolates in parentheses) were included: Corynebacterium urealyticum (30), Corynebacterium minutissimum (20), coryneform CDC group ANF-1 (20), Corynebacterium striatum (20), Corynebacterium jeikeium (15), coryneform CDC group 12 (8), Listeria monocytogenes (7), Corynebacterium xerosis (5), and other coryneform bacteria (10). Agreement within one twofold dilution between the E-test and broth microdilution was 31% (VA), 64% (AK), 71% (CTX), 77% (FOX and CIP), 79% (TE), 84% (AMP), 87% (E), and 88% (CR and R). For the 1,350 combinations of microorganisms and antimicrobial agents, 85 (6.3%) discrepancies in interpretive category wer...
