Nevertheless, physicians should be aware of the age-specific distribution of GABHS and GBBHS infection and must account for these differences when deciding to use GABHS-RADT for screening PSD.
GABHS isolates are rarely resistant to erythromycin or clindamycin, whereas higher resistant rates for both antibiotics were observed in GBBHS isolates.
Only 42% of adult patients with PSD are successfully treated with the first course of oral antibiotics, possibly due to the higher minimal inhibitory concentration for penicillin in GBBHS compared to GABHS, hence a higher dosage of the same antibiotic might be necessary, whereas some advocate prolonged treatment (6, 32).
To conclude, we observed seasonal and age-specific distribution of GABHS, GBBHS, and non-group A or B BHS in rectal and perianal skin bacterial cultures.
