MRSA as a causative factor for ecthyma gangrenosum: a rare case report
Ecthyma gangrenosum is a skin manifestation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in immunocompromised individuals. Here we report a case of a 64-year-old diabetic female with Ecthyma gangrenosum lesions on both lower limbs, admitted for surgical debridement. Pus culture taken during surgery showed growth of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. The patient was started on appropriate antibiotics with reasonable glycemic control using parenteral insulin. The patient responded well to the above treatment and was discharged.
