Abstract

Mastitis is frequent and may lead to severe mutilations if initial treatment is not adequate. Community-acquired MRSA infections have been increasing in prevalence and incidence, including mastitis. We conducted a prospective observational study to evaluate the incidence of MRSA infections in community mastitis in Vitória, Espírito Santo. In the 24 months of study conducted at the genecology and obstetrics emergency room of the Santa Casa de Misericórdia hospital, 52 patients with mastitis and indication of drainage had the etiological agent identified. The most important was Staphylococcus aureus, with 96% (50 / 52), of these 72% (36/50) were MRSA. Half of these patients were lactating. In the community mastitis treated in this service, there is a high incidence of MRSA, with potential failure in the initial treatments and risk of colonization and infection in newborns in the puerperal mastitis.

Keywords:  Mastitis; MRSA infections; antibiotics.
