Introduction to Gram-Positive Cocci
Many gram-positive cocci are commensal organisms that cause infection only when they find their way into normally sterile areas.

Although they are generally susceptible to a broad range of antibiotics, certain strains have developed resistance to many available antimicrobial drugs.
