Nasopharyngeal colonization with Staphylococcus aureus in newborn
Staphylococcus aureus is an important agent during neonatal period. Staphylococcal infections are responsible to a high rate of morbidity and mortality of neonates. This study is retrospective over 3 years on 148 newborns. It was evaluated the nasopharyngeal colonization of these patients and the different strain patterns encountered. Correlations were made with demographic information correlated and inflammatory markers. In our study the most encountered pathogen that colonized the nasopharynx was Staphylococcus aureus MSSA. Also there were MRSA strains that were associated with living in urban area and parenteral smoking. We found no statistical correlation between colonization and any of the considered inflammatory markers.
Key words: colonization, newborn, strain pattern, antibiogram
