Abstract:
Staphylococcus aureus nasal carriers in medical staffs are one of the important causes of nosocomial infections. They can easily be treated by Mupirocin ointment. We studied the effect of the Mupirocin ointment in the treatment of Staphylococcus aurous nasal carriers in clinical wards staffs. This cross-sectional study was done on 18 cases. One week and 1 to 3 months after Mupirocin application in their anterior nasal vestibules, nasal cultures were done. Between them, 83.3% after one week of their treatment had negative cultures. Ninty three percent of the above group after one month had negative cultures and 86% of them after 3 months had negative cultures. All of the isolates were sensitive to vancomycin. It seems that Mupirocin is effective in treatment of nasal carriers of Staphylococcus aureus.
