Background Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is an important public health issue. The study aimed to characterize the patient demographics, clinical features, antibiotic susceptibility, and clinical outcomes of keratitis caused by S. aureus, and to make a comparison between MRSA and methicillin-sensitive S. aureus (MSSA) isolates. Methodology/Principal findings Patients (n = 59) with culture-proven S. aureus keratitis treated in Chang Gung Memorial Hospital between Jan...

Purpose To assess the in vitro susceptibility of Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus and coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) ocular isolates to antibiotics, and identify changing trends in resistance over a 10-year period. Methods All isolates from ocular infections collected between 2000 and 2009 were prospectively tested against several antibiotics in vitro . S. pneumoniae isolates ( n = 93) were tested against 20 and S. aureus ( n = 120) and CoNS ( n = 214) against 19 antibiot...

Objective To review the distribution, current trends, and resistance patterns of bacterial keratitis isolates in Toronto over the last 11 years. Design Retrospective, observational, case series. Participants Microbiology records of suspected bacterial keratitis cases that underwent a diagnostic corneal scraping and cultures from January 1, 2000, through December 31, 2010, were reviewed. Methods Culture results and antibiotic sensitivity profiles were reviewed and analyzed. Main Outcome Measures ...

Purpose To characterize the patient demographics, clinical features, and antibiotic susceptibility of ocular infections caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), including community-associated (CA) and healthcare-associated (HA) isolates. Design Retrospective, observational study. Participants Patients (n = 519) with culture-proven S. aureus ocular infections seen between January 1, 1999, and December 31, 2008, in Chang Gung Memorial Hospital. Methods Data collected included ...

Purpose To determine the scale of antibiotic resistance in microbial keratitis in East Kent, United Kingdom. Design Retrospective, observational case series. Participants Corneal scrapes over a 10-year period to December 2008 were identified using the local microbiology database, which provided culture results and antibiotic sensitivity-resistance profiles. Testing Isolate sensitivity to chloramphenicol, cefuroxime, gentamicin, and ciprofloxacin was determined by microdilution using the Microsca...

Purpose: In this study we investigated pathogenic organisms, antibiotic susceptibility, and clinical characteristics of patients with Gram-negative bacterial keratitis and elucidated risk factors for poor visual outcomes. Methods: The authors performed a retrospective chart review of 161 eyes (169 isolates) with Gram-negative bacterial keratitis between January 1998 and December 2012 at Yeungnam University Hospital. The study was divided into 5 periods for analysis of the bacteriological profile...
