PMID:  3339655     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) associated with Staphylococcus occurs most commonly in menstruating women, although cases in both sexes have been reported. This report describes a severe case of TSS after a relatively minor stab wound. The male patient exhibited all of the major characteristics of this multisystem disease including anuric renal failure. TSS, which can be fatal, may result from surgical and traumatic wound infections and demands prompt recognition and treatment.
