Increasing incidence and sociodemographic variation in community-onset Staphylococcus aureus skin and soft tissue infections in New Zealand children.

Abstract

We analyzed all cases of community-onset Staphylococcus aureus skin and soft tissue infection in children presenting to our hospital between 2007 and 2010. A total of 1860 children were included. There was significant sociodemographic disparity, with the incidence disproportionately higher in Maori and Pacific Island children residing in deprived areas.
