ABSTRACT

A 78-year-old female developed sore throat, fever and dyspnea, and was hospitalized to Saitama Cardiovascular and Respiratory Center (our hospital) for bilateral pneumonia. We diagnosed her as having influenza-associated pneumonia complicated with methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA), based on a positive influenza virus rapid antigen test result, and positive culture results for MSSA from sputum and blood. Although we administered a neuraminidase inhibitor with several antibiotics, she unfortunately died and expanding ground-glass opacities and multiple cystic lesions were found in both lung fields. We considered that the multiple cystic lesions were pneumatocele complicated by pneumonia. Only 4 cases of MSSA infection were included among 210 influenza-associated pneumonia cases at our hospital, and there were no cases of pneumatocele development.
