Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) continues to emerge as a cause of serious infections. We present the first case of abdominal mycotic aneurysm caused by Panton-Valentine leukocidin-positive CA-MRSA. This case adds another presentation to the clinical spectrum of CAMRSA infections, and highlights the problem encountered in the choice of the therapy of serious communityacquired infections in an era of increasing CA-MRSA infections.
