Abstract: Staphylococcus aureus can cause a spectrum of exfoliative skin conditions including staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS) which can present as a severe and life threatening illness in extremely premature neonates. We describe a case of an extremely premature neonate with SSSS and discuss relevant pathology and issues in clinical management.
