“… 18,32–35 As in other tropical areas, Streptococcus pyogenes (group A streptococcus; GAS) is usually the primary pathogen. 36–38 Staphylococcus aureus is commonly found in pyoderma lesions but is usually a secondary wound colonizer. 37 While there is some evidence that impetigo in affluent temperate Australian cities may be increasingly due to S. aureus as a primary pathogen, 39 this assumption requires further study and does not appear to be applicable to Aboriginal communities, where over 80% of pyoderma lesions may still be GAS culture positive.…”

“…In tropical regions, the major pathogens of pyoderma are Group A streptococcus ( Streptococcus pyogenes ; GAS) and Staphylococcus aureus; with S . pyogenes considered the dominant and usually primary pathogen [ 4 , 10 , 11 ]. This is also the case for remote Indigenous communities in northern and central Australia [ 4 , 10 – 12 ].…”

“…In Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory the prevalence has been reported at between 10 and 70% [ 1 - 4 ]. Pyoderma is important not only because of its local effects as a skin infection, but more importantly because the primary pathogen underlying skin infection in Aboriginal children is a Group A Streptococcus (GAS) [ 5 ]. GAS infections of the skin are believed to be an important factor in acute post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis (APSGN) and acute rheumatic fever (ARF) [ 2 , 4 , 6 , 7 ].…”
