  • ↵a Abbreviations: ST, stool; UR, urine; BL, blood; TR, tracheal lavage; AB, abscess; GA, gastric aspirate; PR, peritoneal fluid; TB, tissue biopsy specimen; AS, ascitic fluid; SP, sputum. For simplicity, isolates from blood, peritoneal fluid, tissue biopsy specimens, abscesses, and ascitic fluid are referred to as BSI isolates in the text, since 28 of the 30 infected patients (93%) had BSIs. Sequences of anatomic origin and dates of collection are noted.
