Abstract: Ceftaroline is a novel broad-spectrum cephalosporin that has activity against gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. It was approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of community-acquired bacterial pneumonia and acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections in October 2010. We report 2 cases of S aureus vertebral osteomyelitis treated effectively with ceftaroline.
