ABSTRACT
After two decades of decline of Group A streptococcal infections, the recent years are witnessing a resurgence in the incidence and severity of infections caused by Group A Streptococcus including necrotizing fasciitis and streptococcal toxic shock syndrome sometimes with fatal outcomes. We present an unusual case of Group A streptococcal infection in a 4-year-old boy who did not have any predisposing factors for Group A streptococcal infection.
