The spectrum of antimicrobial resistance among methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in a tertiary care centre in India


, : The spectrum of antimicrobial resistance among methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in a tertiary care centre in India. Indian Journal of Medical Research 103: 212-215

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a major nosocomial pathogen globally, including India. Staph. aureus strains isolated from pus or blood of patients during January 1993 to November 1994 were tested for antimicrobial susceptibility using Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion technique. Among 1382 isolates of Staph. aureus, 332 (24%) were MRSA. Among the latter, 97 per cent were resistant to trimethoprim-sulphamethoxazole; 85.5 per cent to gentamicin and 45 per cent to amikacin.
