In this study a total of 49 sterile-sites isolates of Streptococcus pneumoniae were tested for their susceptibility to penicillin G (benzylpenicillin) with agar dilution method during a period from March 1992 to March 1994. Of 49 isolates, 11 strains (22 %) had low level resistance to penicillin G (MIC = 0,125-1 mg/l). Non of the strains had high level resistance. © 1995.
