Treatment of vancomycin-resistant enterococcal infections

Vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) are a growing healthcare concern, and since 2012 the incidence has increased eightfold in Denmark. Treatment options for infections with ampicillin-resistant VRE are sparse, and there are no Danish guidelines concerning this topic. For treatment of uncomplicated VRE urinary tract infections, ciprofloxacin or nitrofurantoin can be used.

Combination treatment is recommended for complicated infections and/or prolonged therapy.
