The present study was undertaken to determine the antibiotic resistance profile and the prevalence of  community-associated methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CAMRSA) in Ile-Ife, south-Western  Nigeria. Ear, eye, skin and soft tissue swabs were collected from 50 subjects at the Primary Health Centre of a university teaching hospital at Ile-Ife. Isolation, identification and susceptibility pattern of the isolates was  determined. The methicillin resistant strains were confirmed by the… CONTINUE READING
