Abstract

The study was carried out to determine antibacterial resistance profiles of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) isolates from clinical samples of patients during the duration, from January 2019 to July 2020 in five governmental and private medical laboratories of Aden governorate, Yemen. A total of 267 MRSA isolates were tested with a disc diffusion method from 4 clinical specimens. The isolates were examined for methicillin resistance using vancomycin, erythromycin, amikacin, and gentamicin.

The results revealed a large number of MRSA isolates showed resistance to erythromycin (43.5%) and Vancomycin (28%). A lower number of MRSA isolates showed resistance to amikacin (6.25%), gentamicin (11.75%). A majority of MRSA isolates were from urine specimen (162) followed by (56) wounds, (34) pus, and (25) semen specimens. The highest proportion of MRSA isolates were obtained from Al-medina medical laboratory (31%) and Alborg laboratory (24%).
