Toxin-Related Staphylococcal Infections Necrotizing fasciitis, necrotizing-hemorrhaghic pneumonia, toxic shock syndrome, and scalded skin syndrome: There has never been a clinical trial that specifically addresses antibiotic treatment of staph TSS, thus we are left to base treatment upon in vitro susceptibility data. In addition, suppression of toxin production has been demonstrated with clindamycin Genetics of MRSA: The United States and Worldwide 39 and linezolid, and these may offer an advantage in treating patients with toxic shock syndrome.

The proportion of Staphylococcal infections due to CA-MRSA has reached the point where empiric coverage against this pathogen should be considered in many cases. Recognition of typical skin lesions, pneumonia associated with influenza-like illnesses, and identification of historical risk factors will help institute appropriate therapy early. REFERENCES 1. Salgado CD, Farr BM, Calfee DP. Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus: a meta-analysis of prevalence and risk factors.

In addition, the propensity of MRSA to cause more severe soft tissue infections is suggested by the fatal cases recently reported from the Midwest of the United States (6), by the reports of necrotizing fasciitis caused by CA-MRSA and by fulminant necrotizing hemorrhagic pneumonia following influenza. Similarly, severe staphylococcal infections in France have been reported to be associated with the Panton-Valentine leukocidin (17–21). Recent studies in the United States Genetics of MRSA: The United States and Worldwide 37 have shown that this toxin is found in 77% of CA-MRSA strains compared to 14% of HA-MRSA and 0% of methicillin-sensitive strains (22), including bacteremia, pneumonia, and soft tissue infections.
