In this episode we will discuss the diagnosis and management of TSS and are privileged to be joined by Jim Todd, MD who first discovered TSS in 1975.
Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is a cluster of symptoms that involves many systems of the body. Certain bacterial infections release toxins into the bloodstream, which then spreads the toxins to body organs and can cause severe damage and illness.
Dr. Todd is the previous Section Head of Infectious Diseases, Jules Amer Chair, and Community Pediatrics and Director of Epidemiology at Children’s Hospital Colorado. He is also a Professor Emeritus in Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
