Abstract:

Staphylococcus aureus is one of the most important causes of skin and soft tissue infection and also causes serious fatal systemic disease. S. aureus is a commensal in human body and shows a high rate of carrier state in the general population. The emergence and dissemination of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a global concern in both health care and community settings now a days. To detect the incidence of Community acquired MRSA (CA- MRSA infections) in skin and soft tissue infection. To determine the antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of CA-MRSA isolates. Under standard guidelines pus swabs collected and processed. Under CLSI(2106) guidelines, Screening & phenotyping confirmation of Methicillin resistance was detected by Cefoxitin disc diffusion method which predicts the results for mecA-mediated Oxacillin resistance. Out of total (81) Staphylococcus aureus isolate 24(29.6%) were identified and confirmed phenotypically as MRSA by using Cefoxitin (30μg)disc diffusion method. Since the emergence and dissemination of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a global concern in both health care and community settings now a days, early detection of CA-MRSA will be useful for effective and appropriate antibiotic therapy.
