Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) isolates are widespread in many countries, with varying distribution and epidemiology. The aim of this study was to collect and characterise the CA-MRSA isolates circulating in Italy, since only some case reports have been published. Eighteen Panton–Valentine-positive CA-MRSA isolates were collected from different Italian hospitals during the period 2005–2009 from severe infections (skin and soft tissue infections, n = 10… CONTINUE READING
