Abstract

The clinical features of the toxic shock syndrome are well established. It is rapidly developing disease and may be lethal if not recognized and treated in time. Once the syndrome was associated with the use of tampon by menstruating women. Recently this syndrome has been reported as due to Staphylococcus aureus infection. A severe case of toxic shock syndrome in a 18-years-old patient after reduction mammoplasty is reported, and the importance of an early diagnosis is emphasized.
