Abstract

Menstrual toxic shock syndrome (MTSS) is a rare and potentially life-threatening illness. We present a case of recurrent MTSS initially associated with tampon use that continued to recur when tampons were discontinued, which was successfully treated with rifampicin and clindamycin.

Keywords: antibiotic therapy; clindamycin; menstrual toxic shock syndrome; rifampicin; tampon use.
