This case involves an 8-year-old female who initially presented to her pediatrician after injuring her knee on the school playground. The patient experienced persistent pain and intermittent fevers following the injury, and she was sent for imaging and blood work. Her white blood cell count was noted to be very elevated. After reviewing the labs, the pediatrician prescribed aspirin for pain management. A week later, the patient was brought in with complaints of a swollen neck and a knot in her jaw. She was diagnosed with acute parotitis and prescribed antibiotics. Within 2 days of beginning the antibiotic regiment, the child suffered from high fever, altered mental status, and trouble breathing. She was taken to the emergency room and became unresponsive upon arrival. The patient was emergently intubated but expired within minutes. An autopsy determined the cause of death to be toxic shock syndrome and sepsis.
