AbstractWe identified deep diabetic foot infections by culture and conducted a case-control study examining the risk factors for moderate to severe methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PsA) diabetic foot infections. Our MRSA prevalence was lower than literature values; PsA was higher. Gangrene may be predictive of Pseudomonas infection.
