Abstract

Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is increasingly recognized as an important pathogen causing skin and soft tissue infections. We report a case of severe necrotizing pneumonia caused by community-acquired methicillin-resistant S. aureus in a peripartum woman. This case illustrates that community-acquired methicillin-resistant S. aureus must be considered as a potential pathogen in severe community-acquired pneumonia.
