Recurrent Urinary Tract Infection
  • Clinical examinations were performed in the emergency department and the patient was hospitalised with the diagnosis of recurrent urinary tract infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Infectious Mononucleosis
  • Abstract It is rare to see a concurrent infection with infectious mononucleosis and community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in Tianjin, China.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Poor Feeding
  • A 24-day-old boy presented with fever, irritability and poor feeding. Blood culture grew methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Dry Cough
  • We describe a case of life-threatening necrotizing pneumonia due to PVL-positive CA-MRSA in a 15-year-old previously healthy female who presented with high fever, shivering, a dry cough, and dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Lower Abdominal Pain
  • A 6-year-old boy was referred to a tertiary children's hospital for a 6-day history of right lower abdominal pain and fever. Radiographic findings showed hepatic abscesses and soft tissue abscesses around the left femur.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Buttock Pain
  • We herein present a 37-year-old female patient with no previous medical history who developed pyogenic sacroiliitis with severe right buttock pain 7 days after cesarean delivery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Although the patient required long-term teicoplanin treatment, a further decline in renal function was not observed, and blood culture remained negative after the start of treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Fifteen (71%) patients received anti-MRSA treatment with vancomycin or linezolid, where linezolid-treated patients showed better prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Besides this cohort study, Soriano et al composed 163 matched pairs of patients with MSSA and MRSA bacteremia on basis of preexisting comorbidities, prognosis of underlying disease, and length of hospitalization prior to the bacteremia.[doi.org]

Etiology

  • INTRODUCTION: Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a common etiological agent of a life-threatening infection in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The role of S. aureus and MRSA in the etiology of these complications is very strong [ 28, 29 ]. Vascular surgery The incidence of SSIs at the groin after vascular procedures ranges from 3 % to 44 % [ 30 ].[doi.org]

Epidemiology

  • Several of the strains detected indicated epidemiological links to the Middle Eastern/Arabian Gulf region.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The purpose of this review was to summarize available data to help describe the epidemiology of MRSA in the community.[doi.org]

Age distribution

Pathophysiology

  • However, the pathophysiology of spontaneous skin and subcutaneous infections is different from that of SSI. Spontaneous MRSA abscesses are likely to develop in people with other local or systemic illnesses that predispose them to such abscesses.[doi.org]

Prevention
