TOXIC SHOCK SYNDROME-A TAMPON DISEASE

Author: SMANA POTHUGANTI, K.SAMYUKTHA, E.SUSHMA, KRISHNA MOHAN CHINNALA
Abstract: Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is a rare, life threatening complication marked by high fever, lower blood pressure, rash and the shut-down of multiple organ systems produced by the toxins of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria and also by group A Streptococcus bacteria. The earliest cases of TSS involved women who used tampons during their menstruation, so it is called as a “tampon disease”. TSS can also occur with skin infections, burns and after surgery. The condition can also affect children, postmenopausal women and men. A new vaccine has been designed to reduce the TSS which has undergone phase-I trial. The vaccine will need to undergo more clinical trials to find an optimum dose and test it out in a much larger group of volunteers.
