Description

The article discusses case-control study revealing an increased risk for developing community-acquired Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia (SAB) with the use of systemic glucocorticoids. Topics discussed include data collected from a population-based registry from northern Denmark, use of conditional logistic regression to calculate crude and adjusted odds ratios (ORs) and pathophysiologic mechanisms by which steroid use might predispose to community-acquired (CA-SAB).
