Most Staphylococcus aureus small-colony variants (SCVs) are auxotrophs for menadione, hemin, or thymidine but rarely for CO(2). We conducted a prospective investigation of all clinical cases of CO(2)-dependent S. aureus during a 3-year period. We found 14 CO(2)-dependent isolates of S. aureus from 14 patients that fulfilled all requirements to be considered(More)
We conducted a retrospective study of 99 patients with methicillin-suseptible Staphylococcus aureus catheter-related bacteremia in which vancomycin MIC was determined by Etest. High vancomycin MIC (>1.5 ug/mL) was the only independent risk factor for development of complicated bacteremia caused by methicillin-susceptible S. aureus (odds ratio 22.9, 95%(More)
Molecular epidemiology of Staphylococcus aureus strains causing bacteremia in neonates during 2002 to 2005 revealed seven clones, with four MSSA clones responsible for 80% of the cases. Some clones persisted or reappeared throughout the study. Three bacteremic clones were found colonizing health care workers (HCWs), particularly clone C, which was harbored(More)
Our report highlights an alarming situation in Réunion Island. Reemergence of CS after the increase of early syphilis in women of childbearing age must be considered as a public health alert, especially in countries where health care is supposed to be effi cient. CS is easy to prevent with adequate screening of the mother and good follow-up of seropositive(More)
INTRODUCTION Staphylococcus aureus is a major cause of neonatal community-onset infections. The emergence of methicillin-resistant S. aureus infections in this age group has been reported in USA in the last few years; however there are no studies in Spain. The aim of this study is to describe the epidemiological, clinical and microbiological characteristics(More)
Myxomas are rare mesenchymal tumors that can appear in many anatomical locations, although they are mainly seen in heart and skin. To date, only twelve cases of pure renal myxomas have been reported in the literature. We describe a case of a young Cuban woman with an asymptomatic irregular cyst lesion in her left kidney which was eventually diagnosed as(More)
