Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS) encompasses a spectrum of superficial blistering skin disorders caused by the exfoliative toxins (ETs) of some strains of Staphylococcus aureus. In this case report, we present a case of SSSS in an 8-day-old neonate. Furthermore, we tried to highlight the importance of early diagnosis by history and physical examination and isolation of the infected neonates because of the risk of spread of infection to other neonates in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
