Role of superantigenic strains in the prognosis of community-acquired methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia

Abstract : Methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) strains can produce superantigenic toxins that may trigger a massive release of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which are involved in the onset of septic shock. This 1-year prospective pilot study assessed the role of the production of superantigenic toxins in the outcome of immunocompetent patients hospitalised for community-acquired MSSA bacteraemia. Thirty-seven patients were enrolled, of whom 14 died in hospital. Fourteen patients had septic shock, and the mortality rate in this subgroup was 56%. Twenty-seven (73%) isolates produced at least one superantigenic toxin, but this did not influence the rate of occurrence of septic shock or death.
