A 19-year-old man had been admitted to the Hospital because of septic shock and large scale suffusions all over the body. The pathogen had proved to be Neisseria meningitidis serogroup C. In his stabilization period two superinfectious attacks arose. One of them was a bacteremia, caused by a vancomycin-sensitive Enterococcus faecium. The second was a wound infection in his deep colliquating necrotised tissue of the heel. Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis (VREF) was isolated from this lesion with some Gram-negative oppurtunistic pathogens. The strain contained the vanA gene. After systemic and topical treatment, furthermore plastic surgical interventions the patient recovered. This is the second report on VREF from Hungary colonizing/infecting a patient with an underlying disease.
