Abstract

A multiresistant community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus clone (sequence type 59) established itself as a significant cause of nosocomial bloodstream infections soon after emergence in the communities. Multiresistance might be one of the characteristics that could have contributed to its quick adaptation to hospital environments.
