Abstract Staphylococcus aureus has been recognized as an important human pathogen for more than 100 years. S aureus has been able to adapt and evolve in terms of its resistance traits and virulence factors; it is among the most important causes of human infections in the twenty-first century. Rapid molecular identification in the clinical microbiology laboratory of these resistance and virulence factors expressed by S aureus will play an important role in the future in decreasing the morbidity and mortality of infections. This article addresses the emerging aspects of infections caused by S aureus, including microbiology, epidemiology, clinical presentation, pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis, and immunity. 2010 Elsevier Inc.
