Abstract

lukF-PV was present in 36% of skin and soft tissue infection (SSTI)-derived methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) strains and comprised six distinct clones, which contained fewer enterotoxin genes than strains without lukF-PV. Clinical presentations and outcomes of lukF-PV(+) methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) and MSSA SSTIs were comparable. In multivariable analysis, the presence of lukF-PV remained a significant predictor for incision and drainage among MSSA strains.
