We describe 2 men with prostatic abscesses due to community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Neither of them had diabetes mellitus, prior prostate disease, recent health care exposure or urinary instrumentation and had no evidence of bloodstream infection at the time of presentation. Both were treated with surgical drainage and prolonged antibiotics.
