PMID 23258838

Abstract

Perianal streptococcal dermatitis (PSD) is an uncommon superficial cutaneous infection of the perianal area, almost exclusively described in children and mainly caused by group A streptococci. We report here a case of PSD caused by Streptococcus dysgalactiae subsp. equisimilis, Lancefield group G, in an adult man due to heterosexual oral-anal sexual contact.
