Resumen: The susceptibilities of 54 clinical isolates of Neisseria meningitidis to penicillin, cefotaxime, ceftriaxone, cefepime, imipenem, ciprofloxacin, chloramphenicol, and rifampin were determined by the microdilution method in both cation-adjusted Mueller-Hinton broth (CAMHB) and Haemophilus test medium (HTM). Poor growth was observed in 16.6 and 9% of the strains in CAMHB and HTM, respectively. As a result, the growth of the 54 N. meningitidis strains was evaluated in three other commercially available hatches of CAMHB and in one in-house batch of HTM. Poor growth was observed for 9.3 to 16.6% of the strains in all four batches. More important, three of the CAMHB batches failed to support growth for 3.7 to 33.3% of the strains; 3.7% of the strains did not grow in the in-house-prepared HTM. Ten (18.7%) strains were relatively resistant to penicillin (RRP; MIC, >0.125 μg/ml) in CAMHB and 13 (24%) strains were RRP in HTM. The percentages of agreement obtained by using CAMHB as the reference...
