TIBAVIZCO, Diego et al. Enfoque terapéutico de la bacteriemia por Staphylococcus aureusTherapeutic approach to Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia. Biomédica [online]. 2007, vol.27, n.2, pp.294-307. ISSN 0120-4157.

Staphylococcus aureus is an important human pathogen, responsible for 11-33% of the bacteremias acquired in the hospital setting and nearly 50% of those acquired in the community at large. The epidemiology of S. aureus bacteremia is discussed, with an special emphasis on the situation in Colombia and the resistance mechanisms against the major drug groups used for the treatment. The clinical keys and laboratory support for the appropriate clinical approaches are presented together with the therapeutic strategies for the treatment of patients with S. aureus bacteremia.

Keywords : Staphylococcus aureus [pathogenicity]; bacteremia [therapy]; bacteremia [epidemiology]; anti-bacterial agents [therapeutic use].
