A massive outbreak of the staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome due to an organism with an unusual phage pattern, occurred during a 115-day period and involved 68 newborns. Generalized exfoliative dermatitis was seen in 24 babies, and Staphylococcus aureus was isolated from 23. Fourteen isolates were phage typed, with 13 reported as the epidemic strain 29/79/80/3A/3C/54/75. Eight babies had generalized scarlatiniform eruption without exfoliation (staphylococcal scarlet fever). Cultural data were… 

Regional outbreak of staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome in healthy children

TLDR
A regional outbreak of Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome in previous healthy children over 3 years in healthy children is experienced and guidelines for treating SSSS due to methicillin resistant S. aureus should be established.

Neonatal staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome: clinical and outbreak containment review

TLDR
Results of staff screening underlines the need for vigilance and compliance in hand disinfection strategies in maternity hospitals especially during neonatal screening and preventive procedures.

Staphylococcal scalded-skin syndrome in a very low birth weight premature infant.

TLDR
A 1378-g premature male infant who was born at 29 weeks' gestation and developed SSSS on day 3 of life, with no clinical signs of neonatal sepsis is described, and the need for new adjunctive therapies for this disease is stressed.

Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome related to an exfoliative toxin A- and B-producing strain in preterm infants

TLDR
The carrier of this strain had contact with both patients, suggesting that this individual was the vector between the two patients but not necessarily the source of the original infection.

Case Report: Staphylococcal Scalded Skin Syndrome in A Neonate

TLDR
A male neonate who developed SSSS on day 15 of life, with no clinical signs of neonatal sepsis, is described and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment is highlighted.

STAPHYLOCOCCAL SCALDED SKIN SYNDROME IN A NEONATE

TLDR
A male neonate who developed SSSS on day 15 of life, with no clinical signs of neonatal sepsis, is described and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment is highlighted.

Staphylococcal Scalded Skin Syndrome Developing during Burn Treatment

TLDR
The frequency of asymptomatic carriers of ET‐producing strains should be studied so that strategies to prevent such infections can be formulated.

Molecular epidemiology of staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome in premature infants.

TLDR
Molecular epidemiology investigation supported a unique S. aureus strain responsible for this event and the presence of bidirectional spread between staff and patients of non-toxin-producing strains.
