Abstract: 

14(18.4%) of 76 Staphylococcus aureus strains were isolated from patients who referred to central pathobiology laboratory in Kashan found to be resistance to vancomycine. The resistance pattern was carried out using the agar screen plate according to NCCLS procedure. The resistance rates to other antibiotics were oxacillin 96.1%, penicillin 92.1%, cloxacillin 63.2%, cephalothin 23.7% and gentamicin 4.5%. The S.aureus strains isolated in our laboratory have been found to be multiple resistant. Since the resistance of S. aureus to vancomycin is emerging and increasing, which are particularly important in nosocomial infections, it is very important to carry out a drug susceptibility test before attempting to treat.
