Opalescent grouped vesicles over the face: an important indicator of staphylococcal septicemia.


PMID 21906154

Abstract

We present a report of three cases with vesicles containing opalescent fluid grouped over the face and scattered on the trunk and limbs. Culture of the fluid aspirated from the vesicles grew Staphylococcus aureus in two of the three cases. The observation of vesicles grouped on the face in a sick febrile child should prompt the diagnosis of a severe staphylococcal septicemia.
