BACKGROUND Although osteomyelitis was once commonly due to methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA), methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)--which causes more virulent and invasive infections--has emerged as an increasingly important cause. Differentiating clinically between MRSA and MSSA can be challenging, but is necessary in order to promptly administer appropriate antibiotics and maintain vigilance against possible sequelae of MRSA osteomyelitis. The purpose of our… CONTINUE READING
