This is the case study which help to identified the bacteria
A 20 year old woman was hospitalised for a simple operation on her back. The operation was carried out successfully and the woman was healing gradually. However just before she leaves the hospital she noticed a red, sore bump at her back which grew to become a pus producing lesion. A specimen was taken from the lesion, examined microscopically, and cultured on microbiological media. The results of both microscopy and culture revealed a Gram positive cocci that was catalase positive and proved to be resistant to methicillin.
