Rights and Permissions

Quinupristin and dalfopristin combination has been advocated as a drug of choice for multi-drug resistant (MDR) gram-positive cocci (GPC). We are reporting two cases of neonatal septicemia, caused by the methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), showing primary in vitro pristinamycin resistance. The Minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) for pristinamycin in these two cases were 30 µg and 25 µg, respectively. Universal advocacy of pristinamycin for the therapy of MDR GPC infections should be re-evaluated.
