The etiology of the patient's exfoliative erythroderma remains unclear, with psoriasis or atopic dermatitis as the most likely cause.

NSAIDs can cause serious skin adverse events such as exfoliative dermatitis, Stevens - Johnson Syndrome (SJS), and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), which can be fatal.
The strain had an agr type 1 allele and the lukS-PV/lukF-PV genes encoding PVL (Figure), but harbored no toxin genes (sea through see, tsst, eta, and etb genes encoding staphylococcal enterotoxins A though E, toxic shock syndrome toxin, and exfoliative toxins A and B, respectively).
PCR was used to detect the exfoliative toxin genes eta and etb as previously described (16).
These strains were sent to the French Reference Center for Staphylococci, where genetic sequences encoding accessory gene regulator (agr) subtypes, enterotoxins, exfoliative toxins, toxic-shock syndrome toxin-1, hemolysins, and LukE-LukD leukotoxin were detected by polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based methods.
Some strains produce additional exoproteins that may be responsible for particular clinical manifestations, including the staphylococcal enterotoxins, the toxic-shock syndrome toxin-1, the exfoliative toxins, and the Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL) (3).
