Comparative Study of Frozen and Paraffin-Embedded Sections: Evaluation of Inflammatory Dermatoses.

Isr Med Assoc J 2019 Feb;21(2):82-84

Department of Dermatology, Sourasky Tel Aviv Medical Center, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Background: Frozen section (FS) is often performed when histopathological evaluations are urgently required for implementation of therapeutic measures. In dermatology, this method is most commonly used to evaluate excision margins of tumors. FS are also routinely employed to differentiate toxic epidermal necrolysis from staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome. Read More

Reliability and accuracy of smartphones for paediatric infectious disease consultations for children with rash in the paediatric emergency department.

BMC Pediatr 2019 Jan 31;19(1):40. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Department of Pediatric Emergency Department, Dr. Behçet Uz Children's Hospital, İzmir, Turkey.

Neonatal Skin Emergencies.

Pediatr Ann 2019 Jan;48(1):e36-e42

Although the majority of neonatal skin rashes can be safely monitored without intervention, there are a significant few that are dermatologic emergencies. When called to assess a neonate, it is important to distinguish what requires immediate diagnosis and treatment from those that represent benign etiologies. The skin may be the first clue to certain infections such as herpes simplex virus, syphilis, varicella, cytomegalovirus, fungal infections, and staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome, all of which require immediate testing and some of which may lead to severe sequelae.

Emergence of staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome associated with a new toxinogenic, methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus clone.

J Med Microbiol 2019 Jan 12;68(1):48-51. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

4​2nd Department of Paediatrics, School of Medicine, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece.

A sharp increase in staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS) cases has been recorded in our settings since 2015, with 31 cases having been documented during the period 2014-2017. The molecular investigation of strains from the above period showed the emergence of a methicillin-susceptible, mupirocin- and fusidic acid-resistant Staphyloccocus aureus clone that belongs to the ST121 complex and carries both epidermolysin (eta/etb) genes. We concluded that the SSSS caused by the newly emerged, highly virulent community-associated-methicillin sensitive S. Read More

A Unique Pattern of Staphylococcal Scalded Skin Syndrome-Like Erosions in Patients with Atopic Dermatitis: Dermatitis flammeus.

Skinmed 2018 9;16(5):309-313. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong SAR.

We describe the clinical features of a novel complication in patients with atopic dermatitis (AD). Twenty patients, mean age 23 years, with AD who presented with staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS)-like lesions were included between January 2008 and September 2010. Skin lesions followed a triphasic progression pattern from erythema to hyperpigmentation and then erosions. Read More

Department of Dermatology, University of California Irvine, Irvine, California.

A 6-month-old boy was referred to our burn unit with a recurrent bullous dermatitis, fever, and emesis, originally diagnosed as staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS) at an outside hospital. Infectious workup was negative and shave biopsy revealed a dense, diffuse dermal infiltrate of mast cells, consistent with diffuse cutaneous bullous mastocytosis-a rare variant of cutaneous mastocytosis. Treatment included a prolonged course of corticosteroids and antihistamines. Read More

Acrodermatitis acidaemica.

Clin Exp Dermatol 2018 Apr 15;43(3):315-318. Epub 2018 Jan 15.

Department of Dermatology, St George's Healthcare NHS Trust, London, UK.

Methylmalonic acidaemia (MMA) is an inborn error of amino acid metabolism that may be associated with cutaneous manifestations mimicking other diagnoses, including staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS), psoriasis and acrodermatitis enteropathica. Whether this is due to the underlying metabolic disorder itself or occurs as a consequence of dietary restriction has yet to be elucidated. Skin biopsies typically show histological features shared by a number of other metabolic disorders and nutritional deficiency-associated diseases. Read More

Department of pediatrics, Sahloul University Hospital, 4054, Sousse Tunisia.

Primary immune deficiencies associated with hyper-IgE syndrome are rare diseases with clinical features dominated by recurring cutaneous and visceral bacterial infections, particularly infections due to Staphylococcus species. Most of these infections are associated with milder inflammation compared to normal.

Department of Dermatology, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, Tennessee.

Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS) in premature infants is a rare condition. We present SSSS in an extremely low-birth-weight (ELBW) infant with recurrent and confirmed bacterial sepsis. We present it to emphasize the importance for clinicians to not only recognize the clinical manifestations of SSSS, but also the need to closely monitor infants, especially very low-birth-weight (VLBW) and ELBW infants with SSSS for recurrence and bacterial sepsis.

Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS) is the medical term used to define a skin condition induced by the exfoliative toxins produced by Staphylococcus aureus. The disorder is also known as Ritter disease, bullous impetigo, neonatal pemphigus, or staphylococcal scarlet fever. The disease especially affects infants and small children, but has also been described in adults. Read More

The symptoms of Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS) include blistering of skin on superficial layers due to the exfoliative toxins released from Staphylococcus aureus. After the acute exfoliation of skin surface, erythematous cellulitis occurs. The SSSS may be confined to few blisters localized to the infection site and spread to severe exfoliation affecting complete body. Read More

Benign impetigo can progress into a potential fatal staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS) if prompt diagnosis and correct therapy is not established rapidly. Local and systematic antibiotics as well as Lactulose are crucial in order to stop SSSS from progressing. Burns units should be involved when skin lesions are extensive. Read More

Frozen section is a valuable tool that is often underutilized in the setting of in-patient dermatology. Traditionally, frozen section has been used in dermatology to diagnose toxic epidermal necrolysis, with some additional utility in staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome in the new born period. We report a newborn female with ruptured bullae on the face, chest, back and extremities with a clinical differential diagnosis that included staphylococcal scalded skin, bullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma/epidermolytic hyperkeratosis and epidermolysis bullosa.

Introduction: Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS) was often endemic in the past but is nowadays rare. The hematogeneous spread of exfoliative toxins A (ETA) or B (ETB) produced by specific Staphylococcus aureus strains causes a scald-like eruption with disseminated bullous lesions.

Case Report: A perioral impetigo lesion occurred on day 14 of life in a preterm male infant (1,065 g, 30 weeks of gestational age). Read More

Skin biopsy: Biopsy issues in specific diseases.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2016 Jan;74(1):1-16; quiz 17-8

Department of Dermatology, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, Maryland.

Misdiagnosis may result from biopsy site selection, technique, or choice of transport media. Important potential sources of error include false-negative direct immunofluorescence results based on poor site selection, uninformative biopsy specimens based on both site selection and technique, and spurious interpretations of pigmented lesions and nonmelanoma skin cancer based on biopsy technique. Part I of this 2-part continuing medical education article addresses common pitfalls involving site selection and biopsy technique in the diagnosis of bullous diseases, vasculitis, panniculitis, connective tissue diseases, drug eruptions, graft-versus-host disease, staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome, hair disorders, and neoplastic disorders.
