We report the case of a 15-year-old girl who developed high fever, syncope, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, myalgia, pharyngitis, and a desquamating rash eight days after a diagnostic peritoneal lavage. The diagnostic peritoneal lavage wound was erythematous and tender. Incision of the site yielded 10 mL of exudate that cultured Staphylococcus aureus. The patient was treated with a first-generation cephalosporin and recovered without sequelae. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of toxic shock syndrome following diagnostic peritoneal lavage.
