We present a case of concomitant Streptococcus pyogenes (GAS; Group A Streptococcus) and Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) who responded to conservative therapy with adjunctive Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIG) and Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) therapy. TSS is a devastating illness with a high mortality rate; therefore, we stress the importance of early multidisciplinary approaches including early administration of IVIGT and HBOT.
