Work-related MRSA CC398 carrier status had serious psychosocial consequences to a farmer
We describe a case of work-related methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) CC398 carrier status in a 33-year-old male working at a pig farm. The case was complicated since his pregnant girlfriend had also MRSA CC398 carrier status. Although she remained without con­tact to farm animals the MRSA could not be eradicated. Conflicting messages from health-care workers complicated the case and the psychological consequences became traumatizing to the patient and caused sick leave and psychotherapy. This case shows the importance of better information of MRSA CC398 positive patients in the future, especially for MRSA-exposed occupations.
