Staphylococcus aureus is the most common human pathogen. In hospital and community settings in which methicillin-resistant S. aureus skin and soft tissue infections are widely and increasingly prevalent, methicillin-sensitive S. aureus infections are resurging at an alarming rate. We present 4 extremely rare infections in 3 infants and a young child caused by methicillin-sensitive S. aureus, namely, pyomyositis of the sternocleidomastoid muscle, urachal abscess, necrotizing soft tissue infection (necrotizing fasciitis) of the thigh, and spinal epidural abscess.
