Abstract

The outcome of patients who were treated with oral trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole or oral clindamycin after hospitalization at Texas Childrens Hospital for community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus skin and soft tissue infections was compared. No significant differences were observed in the percentage of patients who returned to the emergency center or clinics because of worsening or incomplete resolution of the infected site.
