"Is MRSA really an emerging threat
to all infants – especially recently
circumcised baby boys?

Yes. Circumcision makes a baby boy 12
times more likely to get a MRSA infection.9
MRSA is an emerging threat in the 21st
century, just as HIV was in the 1980s, and
the risk increases as MRSA becomes more
common. MRSA infection is spread in
nurseries. Boys are more susceptible to
skin colonization and infection.Infants
have immature immune systems, so are less
resistant to infection. A localized infection
can quickly become a life-threatening,
invasive systemic infection."
