Even with prompt surgical exploration and initiation of antibiotic therapy the prognosis of streptococcal toxic shock syndrome (STSS) and associated myositis is poor. Due to often non-specific symptoms a rapid diagnosis is difficult. Emergency magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is recommended in patients with sepsis and muscle pain. Rapid progression of the disease may occur and the outcome is mainly determined by the extent of multiple organ failure.
