A Severe Pneumonia due to Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Clone USA 300: Implications of Vertical Transmission

Issue: 
Pages: 
145–7
Synopsis: 
Aggressive antibiotic therapy is essential for the management of patients with methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) pneumonia and this therapeutic approach will also help to prevent the passing of the organism on to other individuals.

 

ABSTRACT

Staphylococcus aureus is an important pathogen in both community and healthcare associated pneumonia. We describe a case of severe pneumonia caused by the methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) clone USA 300 in a 44-year old post-partum woman and the subsequent vertical transmission of this virulent organism to her neonate.
