Abstract: Ceftaroline is a novel broad-spectrum cephalosporin approved in October 2010 by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of community-acquired bacterial pneumonia and acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections caused by different organisms, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. We report 2 cases where ceftaroline was used effectively to treat complicated methicillin-resistant S aureus bacteremia.
