Abstract

In this paper I will present background information on the emergence of drug-resistant S. pneumoniae and information regarding laboratory methods used to detect antimicrobial susceptibility. I will then present the results of surveillance for penicillin-resistant S. pneumoniae in 1992-1993 and 1995-1996, changes in laboratory susceptibility testing practices that occurred between 1993 and 1995, and an assessment of the accuracy of susceptibility test results reported by hospital laboratories in 1995-1996.
