Abstract:

Methecillin resistant Staphylococcus (MRS) is problematic, as the therapeutic outcome of MRS infection is much worse than those caused by methicillin sensitive strain. This study was conducted to determine the occurrence and antimicrobial sensitivity pattern of MRSA and MRCoNS isolated from different clinical samples. MRSA and MRCoNS were identified among 215 Staphylococcus isolates, isolated from various clinical samples. All isolates were identified as per CLSI guideline and AST pattern was determined by Kirby Bauer disc diffusion method. A total of 215 Staphylococcus isolates were prolcessed of which 122(56.74%) were coagulase positive Staphylococcus aureus and 93 (43.26%) isolates were Coagulase negative Staphylococcus. Among 122 coagulase positive Staphylococcus aureus 64(52.46%) were MRSA, whereas among 93 CoNS, 36 (38.7%) were MRCoNS. Among the MRSA and MRCoNS isolates maximum resistance was seen with Penicillin-G which was 90.62% and 88.88% and both MRSA and MRCoNS was least with Vancomycin and Linezolid (100%). The regular surveillance of MRSA and MRCoNS will be useful for select an appropriate antibiotic and for limiting use of powerful antibiotic like Vancomycin as initial treatment and life threatening staphylococcal infection.
