Abstract

Community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) threatens human health. A local CA-MRSA with ST8/SCCmecIVl (CA-MRSA/J) has emerged in Japan, being associated with progression from bullous impetigo to potentially fatal invasive infection. We found that CA-MRSA/J has unique bacterial surface structures, spikes, spikes with a cap, and long spikes, reflecting clinical origins. Copyright © 2020. Published by Elsevier B.V.
