Caption

Wound infected with MRSA. Open wound on a patient's arm that has become infected with the bacteria MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). Infection can lead to boils, pustules and abscesses, and in some cases the potentially fatal toxic shock syndrome (TSS). Some strains of MRSA can still be treated with certain drugs, but others have developed wide- ranging antibiotic resistance. The spread of MRSA can be prevented by health workers washing their hands between patients and before procedures.
