  We describe a 6-month-old infant with blistering distal dactylitis. Bacterial culture from the skin lesion grew methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus. No carriage of this bacterial agent was identified in her family. She responded to vancomycin administration and incision and drainage of the lesion. This is the first reported case of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus-associated blistering distal dactylitis in an infant.
