Abstract

ROMANELLI, RMC et al. MRSA outbreak at a transplantation unit. Braz J Infect Dis [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.1, pp.54-59. ISSN 1413-8670.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-86702010000100011.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections frequently complicate the post-operative course of transplant recipients, and despite nasal carriage and endemic colonization, MRSA outbreaks are not commonly described. This study reports a case of MRSA outbreak and discusses infection control measures and recommendations for this situation.

Keywords : MRSA; outbreak; surgical site infection; liver transplantation; RAPD.
