Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) due to toxic shock syndrome toxin 1 (TSST-1) released by Staphylococcus aureus is sometimes fatal. Therefore, appropriate and urgent treatment of TSS are needed. Recently TSS cases following sinonasal surgery have been reported. However, the patients with the correct diagnosis of TSS seemed rare. We experienced a patient with TSS after Caldwell-Luc operation, and the patient was treated successfully with hydration, appropriate antibiotics, γ-globin, local irregation of disinfectant, etc, we discuss on making diagnosis and prediction of TSS.
