LP16662-6   Staphylococcus aureus
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) are cocci-shaped gram-positive bacteria that assemble in grape-like clusters and cause a wide variety of infections. Up to 50% of adults carry S. aureus on their skin or in their mucous membranes. It is highly adaptable, resulting in drug resistant strains: methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), methicillin-susceptbile S. aureus (MSSA), vancomycin-intermediate S. aureus (VISA) and vancomycin-resistant S. aureus (VRSA). Examples of human infections caused by S. aureus: bacteremia, gastroenteritis, infective endocarditis, meningitis, osteomyelitis, pulmonary infections, septic arthritis, skin and soft tissue infections, toxic shock syndrome, and urinary tract infections. Diagnosis of S. aureus infection may vary by infection site, e.g., clinical signs and symptoms for skin infections, blood or tissue cultures for other infection types. People with chronic health conditions, weakened immune systems or IV drug users are at a greater risk, as are patients in intensive care units (ICUs) and those with a history of certain types of surgeries and patients with implanted medical devices.
