A total of 165 strains of coagulase positive staphylococci (CPS) and 39 strains of coagulase negative Staphylococci (CNS) isolated from various clinical specimens studied for biochemical and enzyme profile showed overlapping of the key characters of pathogenicity. Anaerobic mannitol fermentation (69.20%), phosphatase (58.97%) and penicillinase (58.97%) production was remarkable amongst CNS. Both CPS and CNS showed increased resistance to penicillin and other antimicrobials. Besides increased frequency of isolation of CNS from pathological specimens, they elaborate singly or in combination, the recognized virulence factors.
