A pure enterococcal abscess after cesarean section.
The pathogenic role of the enterococcus in pelvic infections is controversial. This case report of a pure enterococcal abscess developing after cesarean section supports the view that this organism can be a primary pathogen in obstetric and gynecologic infections. Because of its unusual sensitivity pattern, the enterococcus requires specific antibiotic therapy.
