Streptococcus pneumoniae
General Susceptibility

General Susceptibility

  • Penicillins
  • Cephalosporins
  • Vancomycin
  • Levofloxacin
  • Linezolid

Variable Susceptibility:

  • Clindamycin
  • Tetracyclines
  • SMX/TMP

  • Penicillin and ceftriaxone resistance exists, therefore vancomycin should be added to all empiric meningitis regimens

  • For invasive infections, susceptibility profiles with MIC data should be obtained
