MDInfectious Diseases in Clinical Practice: September 2011 - Volume 19 - Issue 5 - pp 367-369 doi: 10.1097/IPC.0b013e3182099db9 Case Reports Abstract Author Information Abstract Group B streptococcus (GBS) is widely known as a cause of infection in neonates and peripartum women, but the incidence of adult infections with GBS appears to be increasing. We report a case of GBS erysipelas with associated toxic shock syndrome and secondary leukocytoclastic vasculitis. Vasculitis has been reported with other streptococcal infections, but to our knowledge, this is the first report of vasculitis with GBS.
