Abstract

Staphylococcal toxic shock syndrome (TSS) has rarely been reported without rash and desquamation. This study describes a patient who met all criteria for TSS except erythroderma and desquamation. The associated staphylococcal superantigen was enterotoxin B. We demonstrate that erythroderma depends on preexisting T cell hypersensitivity amplified by superantigenicity.
