Staphylococcus epidermidis is a coagulase-negative, gram-positive cocci bacteria that form clusters. It is also a catalase-positive and facultative anaerobe. They are the most common coagulase-negative Staphylococcusspecies that live on the human skin. In its natural environments such as the human skin or mucosa, they are usually harmless. There are 33 known species that belong to the Staphylococcus genus. S. epidermidis is among the many bacteria that make up the normal skin flora. This particular bacterium was first differentiated from other forms of Staphylococcus in 1884 by Friedrich Julius Rosenbach (1). S. epidermidis does not usually is not usually pathogenic Staphylococcus epidermidis is a leading nosocomial pathogen. In contrast to its more aggressive relative S. aureus, it causes chronic rather than acute infections.In highly virulent S. aureus, phenol-soluble modulins (PSMs) contribute significantly to immune evasion and aggressive virulence by their strong ability to lyse human neutrophils.Members of the PSM family are also produced by S.
