Abstract

Streptococcus pneumoniae is one of the primary causes of community-acquired pneumonia. The vaccine serotypes were dominant and could be isolated in 14% of adult patients, with serotype 3 being the most predominant (25%), followed by 6A, 6B, and 7F. Approximately, 44% of the isolates showed resistance to tetracycline.
