    Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrom is a bullous dermatosis induced by exfoliating staphylococcal exotoxins. Children are most often affected. We report the case of a 6-month-old infant who had angina in the few days before leading up to bullous erythroderma and whose skin biopsy showed characteristic appearance of staphylococcal scalded skin syndrom. The development was rapidly unfavourable and the infant died in a refractory septic shock chart, despite the introduction of norepinephrine and anti-SAMR antibiotic therapy. The term staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS) was separated from the toxic or allergic epidermal necrolysis by Lyell into the opposite anatomical aspect of these two entities: in scalded skin syndrome, Skin detachment is done by cleavage of the superficial part of the epidermis at the granular layer, while in toxic Lyell syndrome, the cleavage sits deeper at the level of the mucous body.
