Abstract:

In current study, 140 clinical isolates of Staphylococcus aureus were collected from different hospitals in Baghdad and Diyala. 113 of them were diagnosed as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) by two different methods were used; phenotypic method was done by chromogenic MRSA agar and genotypic method was done by Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technique to detection mecA gene. Multiplex PCR technique has been used to investigate accessory gene regulator (agr) in 113 MRSA isolates and the results were 84(74.34%) isolates were belonged to agr group III, 26(23.01%) isolates were belonged to agr group I and 3(2.65%) isolates were untypable , while agr groups II and IV were absent.
