2 Antimicrobial regimens for TSS [3, 57] Organism GAS S. aureus (MSSA) S. 11 Purpura Fulminans Purpura fulminans is seen in three clinical settings: hereditary deficiency of protein C or S; acute infectious purpura fulminans; and idiopathic purpura fulminans [64]. The acute infectious purpura fulminans is the most common form and is discussed in this section [19]. A number of infections induce this syndrome, but the two most common are Neisseria meningitidis and streptococcal infections [65]. Infectious purpura fulminans begins with dermal discomfort that progresses within hours to petechiae that then coalesce to form purple ecchymoses [66] (Fig.

If severe enough, the pain can be misdiagnosed as an acute abdomen or myocardial infarction, depending on the dermatome involved. Patients usually present with tingling and paresthesia in the dermatome where cutaneous lesions eventually develop. Diagnosis is often delayed as the cutaneous lesions are not present at the onset of disease and mortality rate remains high despite initiation of antiviral therapy [91]. Immunocompromised patients are at an increased risk not only for uncomplicated herpes zoster infections but also for complications of Fig.

Complications include encephalitis in 60–75% of cases, severe coagulopathy, liver dysfunction, pulmonary involvement, and a high mortality rate [75, 79]. Neonatal HSV infection should be treated with intravenous acyclovir 10–20 mg/kg every 8 h for 10–21 days. Immunosuppressed patients are at risk of developing fulminant herpes infections. Vesicles enlarge to form hemorrhagic blisters and deep ulcers [80] (Fig. 4). Death is often secondary to visceral involvement and despite early treatment with intravenous acyclovir 10 mg/kg ideal body weight every 8 h for 7–14 days, herpes encephalitis carries significant morbidity and mortality [81].
