A case of non-menstrual toxic shock syndrome

A 20-year-old woman was admitted with a short history of high fever, rash, gastrointestinal symptoms, vaginal discharge and hypotension. Whilst toxic shock syndrome was considered, no gynaecological source of infection was found. Subsequent isolation of Staphylococcus aureus from a cutaneous blister led to confirmation of the diagnosis.
