    Abstract

    The aim of this study was to investigate the trends of hospitalisation for cellulitis in Western Australia. There was a strong association between socioeconomic status and rate of cellulitis, with the most disadvantaged quintile of the population (1.7% of residents) accounting for 34% of cellulites cases. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were almost seven times over-represented, compared with non-Indigenous Western Australians.
