Summary

The methicillin resistant strains were isolated from 62.2 per cent of the cases with acute purulent-inflammatory processes in the lungs. High resistance levels to all widely used antibiotics, stability to the effect of heavy metal salts, as well as virulence were characteristics of methicillin resistant staphylococci. Successful elimination of the determinants of methicillin resistance from some strains and their stability in the others indicate to the dual nature of methicillin resistance in clinical staphylococcal strains.
