Enterococcus faecalis. Computer artwork of Enterococcus faecalis bacteria (previously known as Streptococcus faecalis). The bacterium is in the process of dividing through binary fission. E. faecealis exists as part of the normal flora of the human alimentary tract, but may cause infections in the urinary tract. It may cause bacterial endocarditis following gynaecological or genito-urinary surgery and also pneumonia. The bacteria is one of the so called superbugs, which are resistant to antibiotics in some stages of their development in the system of a patient.
