Résumé
We report the first case of meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) with the mecC gene in a patient in western Switzerland. After this first identification, a polymerase chain reaction protocol was established to investigate the occurrence of this new mecC gene in the population of this region. Enrichment broths were investigated from 1062 patients screened for MRSA, meticillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus isolates from clinical specimens from 475 patients, and 80 MRSA isolates (from 2005 to 2011) showing discrepancies between genotypic and phenotypic meticillin resistance. None was positive for mecC, suggesting that it is rare in the patient population of this region.
