Subject

Acute skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) are commonly encountered in clinical
practice, yet they can be challenging to diagnose and manage. SSTIs range from
mild cases of cellulitis to potentially life-threatening conditions, such as necrotizing
fasciitis and shock from staphylococcal scalded-skin syndrome. Infections of the
skin and soft tissues may be caused by bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites. They
may lead to significant complications, including osteomyelitis, bacteremia, endocarditis, and death
