Abstract

Group A Streptococcus has emerged as an increasingly prevalent cause of invasive skin and soft tissue infections. We report the case of a 41-year-old man who presented with a necrotic index finger. To our knowledge, this is the first case of unexplained digital arterial thrombosis in the setting of group A Streptococcus cellulitis.
