Abstract

This case-control study of 25 cases with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacteremia with vancomycin minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) ≥ 2 g/mL and 391 controls (MIC < 2 g/mL) characterized the clinical characteristics, treatments, and outcomes associated with elevated vancomycin MIC. Elevated vancomycin MIC was associated with baseline hemodialysis, prior MRSA colonization, and metastatic infection.
