Abstract

There are currently no clear consensus recommendations for the treatment and prevention of community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus skin and soft tissue infections in pediatric patients. We surveyed over 100 Pediatric Infectious Diseases consultants and found considerable variability in both the treatment of skin and soft tissue infections and the strategies used for the management of children with recurrent MRSA disease.
