Abstract

Introduction: The increasing antibiotic resistance of staphylococci, an important factor among societal and hospital-sourced infection factors, reduces the treatment choices available. Fusidic acid (FA), the use of which has recently come to the agenda again, is thought to form a new alternative treatment for staphylococci infections. The aim of our study is to identify the FA resistance situation at certain centers compared to generally increasing antibiotic resistance, to present epidemiological data on new antibiotherapy methods and to aid in treatment planning.
