Treatment failure due to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) with reduced susceptibility to vancomycin

Anthony J Grabs and Reginald SA Lord
Med J Aust 2002; 176 (11): 563.
Published online: 3 June 2002

To the Editor: We read with interest the case report of Ward and colleagues, describing methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus with reduced susceptibility to vancomycin in a patient being treated for lower-limb ischaemia.1 We conclude that this antibiotic resistance may not have developed if the patient had been treated with conventional vascular therapy.
