Abstract

Staphylococcal Scalded Skin Syndrome (SSSS) and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN) though rare are among the few emergencies in dermatology practice. Distinguishing between the two is vital for management. We report an 8-month-old baby with erythema and exfoliation of the skin. Certain subtle clinical clues helped to arrive at a correct diagnosis of Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis. This case exemplifies the need for a detailed history taking and astute clinical examination.
