Abstract

Staphylococcus toxic shock syndrome is a severe illness caused by infection with toxin producing Staphylococcus aureus and is associated with a poor outcome. We report a case of Staphylococcus TSS presenting with cough and expectoration along with multiple pneumatoceles visible on the chest radiograph that progressed to acute respiratory distress syndrome with eventual foci in brain. The patient was aggressively managed and recovered completely.
