Increasing Clindamycin and Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazole Resistance in Pediatric Staphylococcus aureus Infections.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The epidemiology of Staphylococcus aureus infection in children is dynamic. We conducted a retrospective observational study on pediatric clinical cultures, performed between 2005 and 2017, that grew S aureus to determine temporal trends in antibiotic resistance. Although methicillin resistance declined, clindamycin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole resistance increased significantly, especially among community-onset isolates.
