Abstract

Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) bacteremia is an uncommon infection in Korea. Typically, staphylococcal bacteremia is associated with various metastatic infections, such as multiple liver and spleen abscesses, infectious spondylitis, or infective endocarditis. Solitary cholecystitis as the only manifestation of CA-MRSA bacteremia has not been reported. Therefore, we report a case of CA-MRSA bacteremia complicated by acute cholecystitis.
