Objectives: Propionibacterium acnes is increasingly recognized as a cause of delayed infection after spinal instrumentation or shunting for hydrocephalus. Biofilm development by this organism has recently been demonstrated. We therefore investigated the effect of two different courses of three anti- biotics (penicillin, rifampicin and linezolid) on...
