The antimicrobial susceptibility of 229 strains of Staphylococcus aureus isolated from various skin infections was determined against 22 antimicrobial agents by the agar dilution method. The clinical isolates were most sensitive to vancomycin, teicoplanin, mupirocin and fusidic acid. No strains were resistant to vancomycin or teicoplanin. Three strains were highly resistant (MIC > or =100 mg/l) to mupirocin and eight strains to fusidic acid. The MIC(50) of all antimicrobials, except for… CONTINUE READING
