Multiple myeloma presenting with pyomyositis caused by community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus: report of a case and literature review (Journal article)

Kalambokis, G./ Theodorou, A./ Kosta, P./ Tsianos, E. V.


Pyomyositis is infrequently reported in patients with multiple myeloma. Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) is emerging as an important cause of soft tissue infections, including pyomyositis. Here, we report on the first case of CA-MRSA pyomyositis in a patient with multiple myeloma and review the relevant literature.
