Abstract

We report 4 cases of community-acquired infections due to Staphylococcus aureus producing Panton-Valentin leukocidin (SA-PVL) with uncommon multivisceral localizations. These cases highlight the need to screen for PVL in patients with serious staphylococcal infections. All patients were cured. Two of them received intravenous immunoglobulins in addition to antibiotics.
