agreement with other data about significant prevalence of macrolide resistance in MRSA, as it is known that resistance to multiple antibiotics arises more often in MRSA strains than in MSSA [ 3, 13, 14, 25 ]. Wide differences in the geographical distribution

. According to the last national point prevalence study of HAIs conducted in 2010, 51% of all S. aureus infections were caused by MRSA strains [14] . In 2013, Serbia has joined the CAESAR (Central Asian and Eastern European Surveillance of Antimicrobial

results showed that all of the isolates from patients, personnel, and surfaces had hospital origin. In agreement with other studies [ 11 ], SCC mec type III was the most frequent strain among MRSA strains. SCC mec type III has been found to be the main

the emergence of community-acquired methicillin-resistant S. aureus (CA-MRSA) strains is an alarming problem, possessing increased virulence and spreading abilities compared with the hospital-acquired methicillin-resistant S. aureus isolates [ 9
