2020 Indian Journal of Forensic Medicine & Toxicology  
Infections triggered by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and onset Resistance to significant anxiety in healthcare environments worldwide from vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VRSA).. Aim:To discover Staphylococcus aureus resistant to methacillin and vancomycin by detecting (Mec A ,Van A and Van B) genes by PCR technique. Methods: A total of 250 samples from patients with different clinical cases whom admitted to Hospitals in Al Muthanna province during a period

Staphylococcus aureus were isolated and identified by using cultural and biochemical testes.The extracted DNA of isolates were amplified by PCR to detect (mecA, vanA, and vanB) genes. Results: The results showed that 72/ 250 of Staphylococcus aureus isolates contained mecA gene, indicating that all isolates are Methicillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA), only five isolates contained van A gene and only nine isolates contained van B gene. Conclusion: Appropriate monitoring and control measures appear to be crucial to avoid the development and transmission of MRSA and VRSA strains in our nation.
