Abstract

Perianal streptococcal dermatitis is generally considered a childhood disorder caused by β-hemolytic group A streptococci. It should also be considered in cases of therapy-refractory gluteal erythema in adults. We report two cases of perianal streptococcal dermatitis in adults. In both, the microbiological examination of the skin swabs showed β-hemolytic group G streptococci. Therapy of choice is penicillin.
