Abstract

Staphylococcus aureusis a leading cause of life-threatening community and hospital-acquired infection. Methicillin-resistant S. aureus(MRSA) was initially limited to the hos-pital environment [healthcare-associated MRSA (HA-MRSA)]; however, in Australia, community-acquired MRSA (CA-MRSA) is now commonly isolated, particularly in Indigenous Australians.
