Staphylococcal Infections

  • Patrick Duff


Staphylococci are responsible for a number of serious disorders in pregnant women, including infections of the skin, subcutaneous tissue, genitourinary tract, cardiopulmonary system, and central nervous system. Staphylococcal organisms also may cause serious neonatal infections such as scalded skin syndrome, osteomyelitis, bacteremia, and meningitis.
