Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) | Complications


What complications can result from MRSA?

Healthy people who develop MRSA skin infections rarely develop more serious problems. But people who have weak immune systems and who get HA-MRSA can develop serious, even life-threatening infections. These can include infections of the blood, bone, heart valves or lungs, and infections at the site of surgery.
