Toxic shock syndrome in children aged 10 years or less.

Pediatrics 1984 July
Eight children aged 10 years or less had toxic shock syndrome, and medical records were reviewed for seven of them. There were four boys and three girls, ranging in age from 5 5/12 to 10 8/12 years; all seven met the Centers for Disease Control case definition of toxic shock syndrome. One boy died. The illness was generally characterized by fever, followed by erythroderma, gastrointestinal complaints, and mucous membrane hyperemia.

In four of four cultures performed prior to the institution of antibiotic therapy. Staphylococcus aureus grew from one or more sites. One boy also met the case definition of Kawasaki syndrome and has had multiple coronary artery aneurysms demonstrated in early and late follow-up.
