Enterococcus hirae
(bacterium incl. VRE)



True pieces of jewellery: the spherical cocci form long strings of pearls.

The Gram-positive, anaerobic Enterococcus hirae bacterium belongs to the Enterococcaceae.

The virulence of this spherical bacterium is low and it is a rare cause of infections like endocarditis.

The major transmission of Enterococcus hirae is still unknown.

Increasing resistance makes the use of antibiotics more difficult.
