Enterocolitis caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus: molecular characterization of respiratory and digestive tract isolates.

Abstract

We investigated the mechanism of outbreak of enterocolitis caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Five epidemiological markers [coagulase type, enterotoxin type, toxic shock syndrome toxin-1 (TSST-1) production, beta-lactamase production and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE)] of 45 strains of MRSA isolated simultaneously from… (More)
