Abstract

Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) skin infections have few treatment options in modern medicine. Nevertheless, according to the guidelines of the Infectious Diseases Society of America clindamycin is an option in managing this issue in outpatient clinics. The present report describes the case of a man with carbuncle during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021, in which clindamycin-resistant S. aureus (mecA, Sccmec-IV) was identified in two blood samples.
