Abstract

Nasal carriage of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus was detected in 18 (32%) of 57 children with community-acquired methicillin-resistant S. aureus infection and 30 (25%) of 121 household contacts. By genotyping comparison, 94% and 64% of the colonization isolates from the patients and the contacts, respectively, were indistinguishable from the clinical isolates.
