High genetic diversity of Staphylococcus aureus in a tertiary care hospital in Southwest Nigeria.

Abstract

Phenotypic and genetic characterization of 62 Staphylococcus aureus isolates recovered in Nigeria indicated a high proportion of Panton-Valentine leukocidin-positive isolates and a high genetic diversity among the 22 methicillin-resistant S. aureus. This underlines the need for infection control in Africa to prevent further dissemination of potentially… (More)
