ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 77-year-old woman who was taken to the emergency department with back pain. The patient had also intermittent fever and chills. It states that she had a medical history of dialysis-dependent chronic kidney disease secondary to diabetic nephropathy and hypertensive nephrosclerosis, and Crohn disease status after colectomy. The blood culture during laboratory evaluation revealed methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia.
