Molecular and phenotypic characteristics of methicillin-resistant and vancomycin-intermediate staphylococcus aureus isolates from patients with septic arthritis.

Abstract

Staphylococcus aureus is one of the most common pathogens in community- and hospital-associated infections and frequently causes severe and intractable infections in osteoarticular tissues. S. aureus isolates that are resistant to methicillin (meticillin) (MRSA isolates) and intermediately resistant to vancomycin (VISA isolates) have emerged. In this report… (More)
