Forty two of Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium obtained from various clinical specimens were identification by using vitek-2 compact system. The presence and compared of virulence factors as gelatinase, biofilm, capsule and other factor among different clinical isolates was also study. The results showed E. faecalis the high percentage (68%) in comparison with E. faecium ( 21%) and other Enterococcus species (11%) from total clinical samples. E. faecalis strains produce 81.3, 59.3 and 25% of biofilm, protease and gelatinase, respectively, as compared to 50, 10 and 10% produce by the E. faecium strains, respectively.
