TABLE 1

Susceptibility of MRSA in This Patient to Antibiotics and MIC Breakpoints for MRSA

AntibioticsMIC of MRSA in This Patient, mg/LMIC Breakpoint, mg/L (Sensitive)
Vancomycin=2≤2
Gentamicin>8≤4
Panipenem-betamipronNo dataNo data
Teicoplanin<2≤8
Arbekacin<1≤16
Clindamycin<0.5≤0.5
Fosfomycin<1≤4
DaptomycinNo data≤1
Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole<1≤2
Rifampicin<1≤1
Linezolid=2≤4
Erythromycin<0.5≤0.5
  • We used the MIC interpretive standard of the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute for all except fosfomycin. Because the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute does not have an MIC interpretive standard for fosfomycin, we used the standard of Beckman Coulter, Inc, instead.
