Staphylococcal scalded-skin syndrome (SSSS) or staphylococcal-induced toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) is a severe blistering disease of young children. The causative organism is Staphylococcus aureus. We describe the clinical characteristics of this disease in 6 children seen at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation between 1970 and 1979.
