Epidemiology of staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome in Germany



Epidemiology of staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome in Germany



Journal of Investigative Dermatology 124(4): 700-703



Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS) is a blistering skin disorder caused by Staphylococcus aureus. The "Dokumentationszentrum schwerer Hautreaktionen", a unique population-based registry for severe skin reactions, included SSSS during a time period of 2 y in Germany. Statistical calculations indicated a low overall incidence between 0.09 and 0.13 cases per 1 million inhabitants per year with 95% confidence interval of [0-4]. The age distribution showed two clusters; one in young children and one in adults. The mortality rate was much lower in children than in adults. Young age was the main risk factor, whereas immunosuppression and consumptive infectious disease were the detected risk factors in adults.
