The Association Between Onset of Staphylococcal Non-menstrual Toxic Shock Syndrome With Inducibility of Toxic Shock Syndrome Toxin-1 Production
TLDR
The onset of staphylococcal toxic shock syndrome caused by TSST-1-producing CC-5 strains seem at least partially initiated by serum induction of TS ST-1, which is regulated by the mutation of putative SarA-binding site at the tst promoter.

TLDR
The aim of the study was to describe the clinical features and short-term prognosis, as well as assess the 2011 Centers for Disease and Control diagnostic criteria, of critically ill patients with m-TSS, and to assess the CDC criteria for clinical diagnosis at ICU admission.
Toxic shock syndrome associated with menstrual cup use

Disparate effects of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection on renal function in IgA-dominant infection-associated glomerulonephritis and menstrual toxic shock syndrome: a case report and literature review
TLDR
Clinicians may help clinicians to understand these distinct renal lesions and make optimal therapeutic decisions expeditiously by examining acute kidney injury in IgA-dominant infection-associated glomerulonephritis and menstrual toxic shock syndrome.
Thrombus formation and ischemic necrosis of the uterus and adnexa due to purpura fulminans: A case report
TLDR
A 45‐year‐old Japanese woman, G2P2 (vaginal delivery), developed fever and lower abdominal pain and the histopathological diagnosis was hemorrhagic necrosis due to extensive thrombus formation, and the possibility of pathologic conditions progressing to the female genitalia was considered.
Non-sexually transmitted bacterial infections of the vulva
TLDR
This review focuses on the non-sexually transmitted, bacterial infections of the vulva, which are well known to dermatologists and venereologists and are classified into sexually transmitted and non- sexually transmitted infections.
IL-35 is critical in suppressing superantigenic Staphylococcus aureus-driven inflammatory Th17 responses in human nasopharynx-associated lymphoid tissue
TLDR
An aberrant T cell regulation on SAg-Sau-driven Th17 activation is revealed and IL-35 is identified as a critical cytokine to control superantigenic S.aureus-activated Th17 responses.
Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Schools in Low- and Middle-Income Countries: A Systematic Review and Implications for the COVID-19 Pandemic
TLDR
A systematic review of peer-reviewed literature on WASH in schools in low- and middle-income countries found a lack of adequate WASH conditions and menstrual hygiene management requirements in all countries.

Nonmenstrual toxic shock syndrome: a review of 130 cases.
TLDR
Cases show that toxic shock syndrome occurs in a wide range of clinical settings and is associated with Staphylococcus aureus infections at a variety of sites: focal cutaneous and subcutaneous lesions, surgical-wound infections, postpartum infections, adenitis, bursitis, deep abscesses, and "primary" bacteremia.
Prevalence of Toxic Shock Syndrome Toxin 1-Producing Staphylococcus aureus and the Presence of Antibodies to This Superantigen in Menstruating Women
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the majority of teenagers have antibody titers (≥1:32) to TSST-1 and are presumed to be protected from mTSS, and the findings suggest that black women may be more susceptible to m TSS than previously thought.
Lesson of the month 2: toxic shock syndrome.
TLDR
Clindamycin is superior to penicillin in the treatment of this condition and significantly decreases the mortality rate in TSS, and there is also an important role for intravenous immunoglobulins (IVIG).
Toxic Shock Syndrome: Still a Timely Diagnosis.
TLDR
Although the incidence of TSS has decreased in recent years, it is crucial that clinicians rapidly recognize and treat this life-threatening condition.
Toxic-shock syndrome: epidemiologic features, recurrence, risk factors, and prevention.
TLDR
Surveillance for toxic-shock syndrome in Wisconsin detected 38 cases with onsets from September 1975 through June 1980; 37 of the patients were women, 35 cases occurred during menses; 38 patients were white; and one patient died.
Staphylococcal Toxic Shock Syndrome 2000–2006: Epidemiology, Clinical Features, and Molecular Characteristics
TLDR
TSS incidence remained stable across the surveillance period of 2000–2006 and compared to past population-based estimates in the 1980s, and tst-1 continues to be the superantigen associated with the majority of menstrual cases.
Toxic-shock syndrome in menstruating women: association with tampon use and Staphylococcus aureus and clinical features in 52 cases.
TLDR
To determine the risk factors associated with toxic-shock syndrome (TSS) in menstruating women, a retrospective telephone study of 52 cases and 52 age-matched and sex-matched controls found no significant differences in brand of tampon used, degree of absorbency specified on label, frequency of tampons change, type of contraceptive used, Frequency of sexual intercourse, or sexual intercourse during menstruation.
[Toxic shock syndrome with multi-organ involvement].
TLDR
A search for a focus of infection is essential for differentiation from a non-menstrual TSS, even if there is as association with menstruation.
