Abstract:

Staphylococcus aureus is an important nosocomial pathogen responsible for mortality and morbidity in nearly most of the patients admitted in tertiary care centre because of its ability to induce methicillin resistance and its ability to show resistance to macrolides, lincosamides, type B streptogramin type and other groups of antibiotics resulting in treatment failure. MLSB strains whose expression can be constitutive (CMLSB) or inducible (iMLSB) is encoded by ermA and ermC genes. MLSB strains of Staphylococcus species were isolated in a tertiary care centre at Thanjavur from January 2018 to June 2018 by antimicrobial susceptibility testing (D test) and strains were confirmed by PCR. This study signifies the importance of early detection of resistant strains of Staphylococcus species at tertiary care centre to ensure appropriate management and strict antibiotic policies which reduces the patient mortality and morbidity due to Staphylococcus species infection.
