Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is an important pathogen in Cystic Fibrosis (CF), with increasing incidence in recent years. We examined the association between bacterial colonization in the sputum (MRSA with or without pseudomonas (PA)) and computed tomography (CT) scores in CF patients.

Abstract

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is an important pathogen in Cystic Fibrosis (CF), with increasing incidence in recent years. We examined the association between bacterial colonization in the sputum (MRSA with or without pseudomonas (PA)) and computed tomography (CT) scores in CF patients.
