Abstract
Community-acquired methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) usually causes skin and soft tissue infections. However, community-acquired methicillin resistant S.aureus has been identified as a causative agent of many invasive infections like necrotizing fasciitis, pneumonia and bacteremia. Risk factors such as immunodeficiency and skin and soft tissue infections have been identified for acquiring bacteremia. We present four cases of bacteremia caused by communityacquired methicillin resistant S.aureus, risk factors and outcome.
