  1. Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in children with no identified predisposing risk.

    Article - En anglais

    Context. - Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections in children have occurred primarily in individuals with recognized predisposing risks.

    Community-acquired MRSA infections in the absence of identified risk factors have been reported infrequently.


    To determine whether community-acquired MRSA infections in children with no identified predisposing risks are increasing and to define the spectrum of disease associated with MRSA isolation.


    - Retrospective review of medical records.


    - Hospitalized children with S aureus isolated between August 1988 and July 1990 (1988-1990) and between August 1993 and July 1995 (1993-1995).


    - The University of Chicago Children's Hospital.

    Main Outcome Measures

    - Prevalence of community-acquired MRSA over time, infecting vs colonizing isolates, and risk factors for disease.


    - The number of children hospitalized with community-acquired MRSA disease increased from 8 in 1988-1990 to 35 in 1993-1995.

    Moreover, the prevalence of community-acquired MRSA without identified risk increased from 10 per 100000 admissions in 1988-1990 to 259 per 100000 admissions in 1993-1995 (P<. 001), and a greater proportion of isolates produced clinical infection.

    The clinical syndromes associated with MRSA in children without identified risk were similar to those associated with community-acquired methicillin-susceptible S aureus. (...)
