This chapter focuses on species of non- species of staphylococci (NAS) selected for their pathogenic potential and those for which recent discoveries have had a significant outcome on the general knowledge of staphylococcal biology. is a human commensal more pathogenic than most other NAS, causing primary infections of the human. is known as a frequent cause of acute urinary tract infection among female outpatients. is regarded as an emerging nosocomial pathogen with a tendency to develop antibiotic resistance. is a rather genetically homogeneous species, since a very limited polymorphism is detected by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) or plasmid analysis. was originally isolated from goat milk; it is the most prevalent NAS in mastitis-free goat milk and has not been isolated from cow or sheep milk. has the usual characteristics of the NAS and can cause significant infection both in the community and in the hospital. strains are phenotypically similar to strains, but a clear-cut distinction between these two species may be obtained by comparing their rRNA gene restriction patterns. has been isolated as a rare cause of human infection including urinary tract, wound, bone, and joint infections; vertebral osteomyelitis; septicemia; and native valve endocarditis. is the most important NAS that produces coagulase; it is, however, taxonomically distinct from . It is the predominant coagulase-positive staphylococcus in the mouth and in skin infections of dogs.
