Preview

Although the rate of ceftriaxone resistance in methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) is reported at approximately 3% in the literature, findings at our institution suggest it is grossly underestimated. Eighty-seven percent of MSSA isolates tested were non-suceptible to ceftriaxone and activity of this antibiotic could not be predicted using other beta-lactams.
