Our study was to delineate clinical characteristics and outcome of cSSTIs involving extremities caused by K. pneumoniae. Adult patients aged 16 years or more with community-acquired cSSTIs, which involved the extremities and were caused by four common aerobic pathogens at a medical center in southern Taiwan during a 54-month period, were reviewed. Of 76 cases enrolled, Staphylococcus aureus… CONTINUE READING
