Description Coagulase negative staphylococci (CoNS) cause various diseases in both human and animals. In this study we analysed antimicrobial resistance and plasmid content in 62 CoNS strains of human and veterinary origin. We detected resistance to all classes of antibiotics in most strains. The majority of strains harboured 1-6 resistance plasmids. CoNS are important source and carriers of antimicrobial resistance genes.
