The species composition of pathogens causing purulent diseases of soft tissues
Summary. We studied the species composition of pathogens causing purulent diseases of soft tissues. The wound material was isolated from 37 patients, including those with diabetic foot syndrome. The dominant pathogen is Staphylococcus aureus (50.0%), and its resistance to penicillin was found in 100% of strains, to ceftriaxone — in 14.3%, to fluoroquinolones (levofloxacin and ciprofloxacin) — in 7.1%. A study of Staphylococcus haemolyticus strains has also established a resistance to penicillin in 100% of cases, to ceftriaxone — in 50%, to fluoroquinolones (levofloxacin, ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin) — in 16.7%. No resistance of none of these pathogens to amikacin, tobramycin, netilmicin, linezolid, vancomycin and teicoplanin was observed.
