Pictures Of Staph Scalded Skin Syndrome

Scalded Skin Syndrome Bullae

Figure 2.25. This infant who developed a mild scalded skin syndrome (toxic epidermal necrolysis; Ritter's disease) at the age of seven days had Staphylococcus aureus sepsis (methi-cillin-sensitive). Note the large bul-lae at this very early stage of the staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome. This is rapidly progressive. The skin is erythematous with vesicular and bullous formation, and there is widespread wrinkling and loosening of the epidermis, which results in the scalded skin appearance.
