Chi Niu, Hsiu-Chin Chen
Dermatol Sinica 9: 121-126, 1991

A 12-month-old female infant had suffered from fever and erythema with tenderness on perioral skin initially, then the rashes spreaded rapidly and geneeralizedly, with the formation of bullae and pustules, and the Nikolsky sign was positive. The histopathological examination of the erythematous lesions showed an intraepidermal cleavage through the granular layer. The bacterial culture from the bullae was negative, but showed staphylococcus aureus from the nose and the throat. Under the diagnosis of "staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome", she received intravenous injection of oxacillin and skin lesions healed within one weeek.
