Nasal Carriage, Risk Factors and Antimicrobial Susceptibility Pattern of Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus among School Children in Ethiopia

Anterior nares are the most consistent site of colonization for Staphylococcus aureus. Carriage of S. aureus, including MRSA), is common in children, and genetic evidence suggests a relationship between nasal carriage of S. aureus and MRSA and subsequent invasive staphylococcal infection. The carriage of CA-MRSA was significantly higher among children than among adults. Moreover, living with young children was associated with increased risk of MRSA colonization in adults.
