Abstract

Antimicrobial susceptibility patterns of 28 clinical isolates of Flavobacterium sp. were determined by standard disk diffusion technique and by antimicrobial dilution in agar. Rifampin, clindamycin, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, cefoxitin, and vancomycin are among the antimicrobial agents which may be clinically useful to treat infections caused by flavobacteria. All 28 isolates were resistant to erythromycin with minimal inhibitory concentrations of 32 μg/ml or more. Currently recommended interpretive zones of inhibition by disk diffusion did not reliably predict antimicrobial susceptibility of the 28 flavobacteria isolates when compared with the agar dilution technique, and therefore, a more direct measurement of minimal inhibitory or bactericidal concentration is recommended.
