Another infectious disease that is widespread, MRSA

A review article abstract, which is often plenty good for the lay person.

On Methicilin Resistant Staph Aureus, a very common and widespread cause of skin infections and sometimes more than that.

Notorious for its resistance, used to be a nursing home infection of great importance–now in the population. Soldiers, athletes are prone to it from skin and hygiene problems.

I see it a lot as a jail doctor, dealing with people whose hygienic and health problems are somewhat more problematic.

So heres the review from the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)>

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), which was traditionally a nosocomially-acquired organism but now frequently occurs in the absence of health care exposure, is the predominant cause of suppurative skin and soft-tissue infections in many parts of the US.1,2 Community-associated MRSA usually causes furunculosis, purulent cellulitis, and abscesses, but necrotizing fasciitis, necrotizing pneumonia, and sepsis can also occur.
