Little research has been carried out on recurrences of catheter-related bloodstream infection due to coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS-CRBSI). The main objective of this study was to characterize patients with CoNS-CRBSI and infection recurrence after catheter removal. We included 184 CoNS-CRBSI episodes. Only 8 patients experienced recurrent bacteremia and none of them developed secondary infection of preexisting orthopedic or intravascular implant material.
