This article is from BMC Public Health, volume 14.AbstractBackground: Enterococci are the most important multidrug resistant organisms associated with immunocompromised patients. Data are lacking about the epidemiology of vancomycin resistant Enterococci VRE in Ethiopia. This study aimed to assess the prevalence of VRE, their susceptibility patterns to different antibiotics and associated risk factors in fecal samples of Human Immunodeficiency Virus HIV positive and HIV negative clients. Methods: A cross sectional study was carried out in a total of 226 113 HIV positive and 113 HIV negative clients, from July 1-2013 to September 30-2013 at the University of Gondar Teaching Hospital. Data on socio-demographic characteristics and risk factors were collected with a short interview guided by pre-tested structured questionnaire. The enterococci were isolated and identified from stool sample using standard bacteriological procedures. Kary Bauer disk diffusion method was used to determine the susceptibility patterns of Enterococci isolates. Data were entered and analyzed using SPSS version 20 statistical package. Results: The overall colonization of Enterococci was 88.9% 201-226 of which 11 5.5% were VRE. The prevalence of VRE among clients with and without HIV infections were 87.8% and 33.1%, respectively. Ninety percent of the Enterococci isolates 181-201 were resistant to two or more antibiotics tested. Isolates of Enterococci recovered from stool samples of HIV infected patients were more resistant to amoxicillin and amoxicillin-calvulinic acid than HIV negative clients P  0.05. Conclusion: The high prevalence of VRE in this study signals the emergence of VRE in the study area. Prior antibiotic treatment was associated with VRE colonization. Therefore, rational use of antibiotics and more detailed study using phenotypic and genotypic methods are needed.
