Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in two child care centers.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has not been studied in child care centers. The prevalence of MRSA colonization was determined at two centers with an index patient. Two (3%) of 61 children at center X had MRSA; strains from both children and the index illness were pulsed-field gel electrophoresis type B. Nine (24%) of 40 children at center Y had MRSA; strains from 5 children and the index illness were type B, and strains from 4 children were type A. Ten of 11 colonized children were in classes with 2- and 3-year-old children. Colonization with MRSA was not associated with health care contact by subjects or by members of their households. MRSA in child day care centers indicates accelerated spread of MRSA in the community.[1]
