To the Editor
I write in response to the article by Dr. Kessler et al. on Inadequate Postgraduate Training of Skin and Soft Tissue Infections in an Era of Community-Associated Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus.1
I congratulate Dr. Kessler et al. for their attention to resident education. They document a remarkable knowledge deficit, in that their respondents did not appreciate the commonness of community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA). We agree that this is hard to believe, given all the attention paid to this organism in the medical literature and the lay press during the last 10 years.
