BACKGROUND The majority of research about community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) infection has focused on skin and soft-tissue infections. No literature has been published on the clinical features and outcomes of adult patients with CA-MRSA bacteremia in comparison with patients with community-acquired methicillin-susceptible S. aureus (CA-MSSA) bacteremia. METHODS From 1 January 2001 through 31 December 2006, the demographic data and outcome of 215… CONTINUE READING
