A 23-year-old man developed cellulitis and ascending lymphangitis of the right leg. Blood cultures and skin saline aspirates were sterile. Gram stain of the aspirate did not show any bacteria. Direct and indirect immunofluorescent staining with polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies to Streptococcus pyogenes revealed streptococci in the reticular dermis. The cellulitis resolved following treatment with intravenous cefazoline.
