Objective: This study was conducted to observe the antibiogram, vancomycin MIC (Minimum Inhibitory Concentration), and inducible clindamycin resistance in clinical isolates of MRSA (Methicillin-Resistance Staphylococcus aureus). Methods: Drug resistance pattern was studied by Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion methods. MIC of vancomycin was determined by agar dilution method. Results: MRSA was found to be highly resistant to gentamicin (76%), erythromycin (67.03%) and ciprofloxacin (65.09%) while glycopeptides showed uniform susceptibility. Conclusion: Though there was no drug resistance observed against vancomycin and linezolid, it’s wise to use these antibiotics safely as emerging resistance has been reported for these drugs from all over the world.
