Abstract

Necrotising pneumonia caused by Panton-Valentine Leukocidin Staphylococcus aureus confers a high mortality. We describe a child presenting with sepsis and necrotising pneumonia. Septicaemia caused by Panton-Valentine Leukocidin Staphylococcus may not be adequately treated with antibiotics to which it appears sensitive through standard culture techniques. Some evidence suggests that early anti-toxin therapy may better optimise clinical outcomes.
