The case involves a 17-year-old male swimmer in otherwise good health who presented to a dermatologist with a boil in his left groin area. The patient was given a cortisone shot and sent home. Several days later, the patient presented with a soft tissue infection. The patient went back to the dermatologist and was found to have cellulitis. The patient was placed on Amoxicillin for 2 weeks and was told to follow up at the end of the antibiotic course. When the patient presented for his follow up, the infection had not subsided, however, no culture was obtained. The dermatologist continued on the patient’s Amoxicillin treatment. Several weeks later, the patient began experiencing night sweats and high fever. He was taken to the hospital and diagnosed with viral sepsis. It was alleged that the proper steps were not taken to rule out complications of infections.
