Case 11d: A 61-year-old female from Mexico presented with ulcerative skin lesions that were not improving despite empiric antibiotics. She had been treated with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole for presumed MRSA infection with no improvement. Initially she had two or three lesions on her thighs and arms that began as a pimple, and later ulcerated. She had been in the United States for two months, but had previously been working for a mulch company in Mexico.
