ABSTRACT
Determines the outcome of Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia (SAB) on mortality. Impact of methicillin resistance and an initial delay of appropriate antibiotics; Role of noneradicable or noneradicated foci, underlying cirrhosis and cancer as independent predictors of mortality; Absence of differences in the associated mortality rate between methicillin-resistant SAB and methicillin-susceptible SAB; Independent association of underlying cirrhosis and methicillin-resistant SAB with mortality.
