Abstract
During a 1-year period, 87 methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolates were collected from 4 major Cuban hospitals for epidemiological analysis. The majority (86%) were related to the community-associated USA300 clone, whereas the remaining belonged to a new clone ST72-V. Interestingly, no hospital-associated clone was found in these Cuban hospitals.
