Abstract

Introduction: Although diabetic foot infections are polymicrobial, gram-positive microorganisms comprise the majority. Daptomycin is a novel agent in treating infections due to multidrug-resistant gram-positive pathogens. In this multicenter study, the outcomes of the daptomycin treatment were evaluated retrospectively in the treatment of diabetic foot infectious without osteomyelitis.
