Abstract
Brain abscess is an uncommon complication of bacterial meningitis or sepsis in neonatal and young infants. Especially, brain abscess associated with staphylococcal bacteremia in early infancy is serious and very rare. So, Staphylococcal bacteremia in infants should be vigorously treated to prevent life-threatening complications. We report a case of the premature infant who developed brain abscess 2 months after an episode with Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) sepsis.
Key Words: Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Brain abscess, Premature infant
