Evidence Grading System
Strength of recommendation
A Good evidence to support a recommendation for or against
B Moderate evidence to support a recommendation for or
against use
C Poor evidence to support a recommendation
Quality of evidence
I Evidence from >= 1 properly randomized, controlled trial
II Evidence from >= 1 well-designed clinical trial, without
randomization; from cohort or case-controlled analytic studies
(preferably from > 1 center); from multiple time-series; or from
dramatic results from uncontrolled experiments
III Evidence from opinions of respected authorities; based on
clinical experience, descriptive studies, or reports of expert
What is the management of skin and soft tissue
infections (SSTIs) in the era of community associated
For cutaneous abscess incision and
drainage (I &D) is the primary treatment
For simple abscess I &D alone should be
Additional data needed to determine role
of antibiotics, if any
Antibiotic therapy recommended
In addition to I & D for
– Severe abscesses
– Multiple abscesses
– Rapid progression with cellulitis
– Signs or symptoms of systemic illness
Send culture to guide antibiotic therapy if
Antibiotic therapy recommended
In addition to I & D for
– Co-morbidities or immunosuppression
– Extremes of age
– Difficult to drain abscess site (face, hand,
– Septic phlebitis
– Lack of response to I & D alone (A-III)
For Outpatients with purulent cellulitis
Send culture
Empiric therapy for CA-MRSA
5-10+ days (follow patient response)
Empiric therapy for Beta-hemolytic
streptococcus likely not needed (A-II)
For outpatients with non-purulent
cellulitis (no purulent exudate, pus or abscess)
Empiric therapy for beta hemolytic strep
Role of CA-MRSA unknown
Add CA-MRSA coverage if
– No response to strep treatment –or– Systemic toxicity
Treat for 5-10+ days, need to follow
patient response
Treatment options for CA-MRSA
outpatient empiric therapy
Adult Dose
Doxycycline or
Minocycline 100 BID
Clindamycin 300-450 TID
Evidence Grade
For coverage for both beta hemolytic
streptococcus and CA-MRSA
Clindamycin alone (A-II)
TMP/SMX or a tetracycline (doxy or mino)
A beta-lactam (i.e.. amoxicillin, cephalexin,
dicloxacillin ) (A-II)
 Linezolid alone (A-II)
32 y/o M with 3 days of an enlarging, painful lesion on his L thigh that he
attributes to a “spider bite”.
T 36.9 BP 118/70 P 82
What is the appropriate
management of this patient?
A. Incision and drainage alone
B. Incision and drainage plus oral antiMRSA antimicrobial agent
C. Oral anti-MRSA antimicrobial agent alone
D. Therapy for Group A streptococcus alone
Treatment of Complicated SSTIs
Deeper soft tissue infections
Surgical/traumatic wound infection
Major abscesses
Infected ulcers/burn
 Surgical debridement
 Send cultures
 Start empiric therapy for MRSA
Inpatient therapy for complicated
SSTIs (empiric to cover MRSA)
Vancomycin IV 15-20mg/kg/dose q 8-12
hours (A-I)
Linezolid (IV / PO) 600mg q 12 hours (A-I)
Daptomycin 4mg/kg IV q 24 hours (A-I)
Televancin 10mg/kg IV q 24 hours (A-I)
Clindamycin 600mg IV/PO TID (A-III)
Inpatient therapy for non-purulent
Could start a beta lactam alone
(e.g. cefazolin)
Then add MRSA coverage if no response
Length of therapy for inpatient
7-14 days + of therapy
Need to individualize based on patient
Usually start with IV and don’t switch to
PO until the cellulitis is nearly resolved to
prevent relapse, exception to rule is
linezolid which has excellent oral
absorption nearly 100%
Management of recurrent MRSA
Emphasize good personnel hygiene,
wound care and environmental cleaning
– Regular bathing
– Frequent hand washing, esp. if touch wound
– Keep draining wound covered
– Avoid sharing or reusing razors, linens, towels
– Clean high touch surfaces with commercial
Consider decolonization if
Recurrent SSTI despite good wound care,
hygiene and cleaning
Ongoing household transmission
Nasal mupirocin BID x 5-10 days +/Daily chlorhexidine gluconate baths/showers x
5-14 days
Reserve oral antibiotics for active infections
Use oral agent plus rifampin plus topical agents
if have relapse despite doing all of the above
What is the management of MRSA
bacteremia and endocarditis?
Uncomplicated bacteremia
– No prosthesis, lines removed, fevers resolved
in 72 hours, blood cultures negative after 2-4
days, no metastatic focus of infection
– Endocarditis excluded
Echocardiogram recommended, TEE>TTE
Give antibiotics x at least 14 days
– Vancomycin 15-20mg/kg IV q 12 hours (A-II)
– Daptomycin 6mg/kg IV q 24 hours (A-I)
Complicated MRSA bacteremia
4-6 weeks of antibiotics recommended
– Vancomycin 15-20mg/kg IV q 12 hours
– Daptomycin 6mg/kg IV q 24 hours
– Some experts recommend high dose
daptomycin 8-10mg/kg IV q 24 hours (B-III)
Off label dosing
MRSA endocarditis
6 weeks of antibiotics recommended
– Vancomycin 15-20mg/kg IV q 12 hours
– Daptomycin 6mg/kg IV q 24 hours
– Some experts recommend high dose
daptomycin 8-10mg/kg IV q 24 hours (B-III)
Off label dosing
Addition of gentamicin or rifampin not
recommended for native valve endocarditis
Prosthetic valve MRSA
endocarditis treatment (B-II)
Vancomycin IV 15-20mg/kg IV q 8-12
hours x 6 weeks
Plus gentamicin 1mg/kg IV q 8 hours x 2
Plus rifampin 300mg PO/IV q 8 hours
X 6 weeks
May need early valve replacement surgery
Indications for surgery for MRSA endocarditis
