Twenty three isolates of Staphylococcus aureus were isolated from 100 different samples of (urine, nose, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), blood, and wound) between January/ 2017 and May/ 2017. Fifty samples for each of Sulaimania and Erbil were identified according to the culture characteristic, morphological and biochemical examinations.The antibiotic susceptibility tests for all isolates were conducted to two antimicrobials agents including [penicillin (p) and vancomycin (VA)] and using the disk diffusion method. The results showed 20 (86.9%) of the S. aureus strains were resistant to penicillin and 3 (13.04%) were vancomycin resistant among MRSA. Two of these isolates that were resistant to vancomycin were obtained from Sulaimania and one of them was obtained from Erbil. The confirmation by PCR was done and a 290bp amplicon product was obtained for VRSA isolates. Only 2 out of 3 of the isolates were corresponding to VRSA, one for each city.
