Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus small colony variants may cause soft tissue infections. However, any case presenting with soft tissue abscess after a fracture surgery is not been reported yet. In this report; a case of methicillin-resistant S.aureus small colony variant that was isolated from a 68-years-old man who has a fracture surgery history and recurrent abscess developing in his left thigh was reported. This variant was recovered from aspiration material of the open wound. Daptomycin was used successfully in the treatment of the bacterial infection which is resistant to rifampin. J Microbiol Infect Dis 2013; 3(2): 89-92
