Practice guidelines for the diagnosis and management of skin and soft-tissue infections.
TLDR
It is the recommendation of this committee that patients with soft-tissue infection be distinguished by signs and symptoms of systemic toxicity (e.g., fever or hypothermia, tachycardia [heart rate,] and so on).
Practice guidelines for the diagnosis and management of skin and soft tissue infections: 2014 update by the infectious diseases society of America.
TLDR
This guideline addresses the wide array of SSTIs that occur in this population and emphasizes the importance of clinical skills in promptly diagnosing SSTI, identifying the pathogen, and administering effective treatments in a timely fashion.
Streptococcal infections of skin and soft tissues.
TLDR
The recent resurgence of invasive group A streptococcal infections is a reminder that the pathogen can cause a variety of skin and soft-tissue infections, some of which are severe and even life-threatening.

Severe group A streptococcal infections associated with a toxic shock-like syndrome and scarlet fever toxin A.
TLDR
From the study of this cluster of severe streptococcal infections with a toxic shock-like syndrome, it is concluded that in the Rocky Mountain region, more virulent group A Streptococci have reappeared that produce the pyrogenic toxin A associated with scarlet fever.

Linezolid versus vancomycin for the treatment of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections.
TLDR
Hospitalized adults with known or suspected methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections were treated with linezolid or vancomycin, and both regimens were well tolerated, with similar rates of adverse events.

Severe group A streptococcal infections associated with a toxic shock-like syndrome and scarlet fever toxin A
TLDR
Twenty patients from the Rocky Mountain region who had group A streptococcal infections from 1986 to 1988 that were remarkable for the severity of local tissue destruction and life-threatening systemic toxicity are described.
