Toxic shock syndrome was first described in children in 1978. Two years later the strong connection between this disease and the colonization of vaginal tampons with certain strains of Staphylococcus aureus was noted. Even from the earliest descriptions, however, it has been clear that the same clinical picture may be caused by staphylococcal infections elsewhere, and that the presence of foreign materials in the body is not mandatory. We describe a patient with toxic shock syndrome after augmentation mammaplasty.
