Abstract

We report an infection with a linezolid-resistant S. aureus in a patient with a left ventricular assist system. Linezolid should be used with caution when invasive devices or foreign materials are in place or therapeutic courses last longer than 14 d. Previous cases of linezolid-resistant S. aureus are summarized.
