A case of multiple furunculosis caused by methicillin-resistant staphylococcs aureus

Abstract

Staphylococcus aureus is one of many causative agents of the fu uncles. As the S. aureus strains resistant to penicillinase-repsistant penicillins (methicillin-resistant S. aureus, MRSA) are more frequently isolated, their accuiate identification became a very important step in selection of an appropriate therapeutic regimen. We report herein a case of multiple furunculosis caused by metkicillin-resistant S. aureus in a 11-year-old male patient, who was successfully treated with sulbactam/ampicillin and amikacin.
