STSS is a rapidly progressive and fatal disease caused by beta-hemolytic streptococcus infection with GAS as the most common pathogen [1].
"It is conceivable that a growing number of patients with STSS have been infected with bacteria other than group A streptococcus," Ken Kikuchi, a professor of infectious diseases at Tokyo Women's Medical University said.
aureus and clade C GCGS organisms had severe infections: 2 patients, 1 of whom died, required renal replacement therapy; 1 was an intravenous drug user with endocarditis; and 1 was a 60-year-old man with diabetes who sought medical care for STSS from an unknown source and subsequently died.

STS is calculated using a number of different validated testing instruments, including the STS subscale of the Professional Quality of Life (ProQOL) measure, the Compassion Satisfaction and Fatigue Test (CSFT) [5], and the Secondary Traumatic Stress Scale (STSS) [6].
