Abstract :

MRSA, or Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, is a type of bacterium that has developed resistance to many commonly used antibiotics. It's a significant concern in healthcare settings because it can cause difficult-to-treat infections. Review articles on MRSA typically cover various aspects, including its epidemiology, mechanisms of antibiotic resistance, clinical manifestations, treatment options, and prevention strategies. MRSA represents a formidable healthcare-associated and community-acquired pathogen characterized by its ability to resist multiple antibiotics, its diverse clinical manifestations, and its impact on public health. Effective strategies for prevention, surveillance, and treatment are essential for mitigating the burden of MRSA infections and reducing their associated morbidity and mortality. In conclusion, veterinarian doctors are responsible for protecting food safety and public health since MRSA is regarded as an emerging zoonotic pathogen that affects both humans and animals.
