  We describe here an inhibitor of Staphylococcus aureus exfoliative toxin. The toxin was extracted from an S. aureus strain isolated from a case of staphylococcus scalded skin syndrome. The activity of the toxin was compared in tryptic soy broth and brain heart infusion broth. Both supported growth of S. aureus but the culture filtrate of brain heart infusion broth lacked exfoliative toxin activity. Furthermore it appeared to contain a substance that neutralized the action of exfoliative toxin. This suggests the possibility of a treatment for staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome and bullous impetigo.

  Over an 18- month period 485 throat swabs and sputum samples were taken from patients admitted to Basra General Hospital, Iraq, with a clinical diagnosis of pneumonia. Most patients [94.0%] had community- acquired pneumonia; 29 [6.0%] had hospital- acquired pneumonia. Patients aged < / = 15 years and males had the highest incidence of pneumonia. Cases were analysed by type of pneumonia: bronchial [76.3%] versus lobar [23.7%], and primary [81.0%] versus secondary [19.0%]. The most common pathogen was Streptococcus pneumoniae [43.9%] followed by Mycoplasma pneumoniae [19.4%]; a low percentage were Proteus spp. [1.2%]. Twenty patients were infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
