Staphylococcus lugdunensis is a gram-positive bacterium that behaves like Staphylococcus aureus and is frequently misidentified because of their similar appearance when cultured.  S. lugdunensis causes skin and soft tissue infections such as furuncles, cellulitis and abscesses.  S. lugdunensis has emerged as an important pathogen implicated in both community-acquired and nosocomial infections.
