Abstract: Osteomyelitis due to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a challenging illness to treat because of limited antibiotic options. Ceftaroline is a novel cephalosporin with activity against MRSA. It is currently approved for the treatment of adults with community-acquired pneumonia (but not from MRSA) and bacterial skin and skin structure infections. This case report describes a patient with osteomyelitis from MRSA cured with ceftaroline.
