We report a case of borderline oxacillin-resistant S. pseudintermedius (BORSP) in a rheumatoid arthritis patient with severe osteoporosis. The organism is also resistant to erythromycin and clindamycin. We also present clear evidence on transmission from the family dog.

Keywords: Staphylococcus pseudintermedius; human infection; oxacillin-resistant.
