Fatal Septicemia Linked To Transmission Of MRSA Clonal Complex 398 In A Hospital And Nursing Home, Denmark
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus
Pubmed Central ID:PMC4861525
Description:We describe 2 fatal cases of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) clonal complex 398 septicemia in persons who had no contact with livestock. Whole-genome sequencing of the isolated MRSA strains strongly suggest that both were of animal origin and that the patients had been infected through 2 independent person-to-person transmission chains.
