We report a case of bacteremic nonmenstrual staphylococcal toxic shock syndrome (STSS) producing staphylococcal enterotoxins A and C. The bloodstream isolation of Staphylococcus aureus, as well as the production of enterotoxins A and C, are unusual as separate entities, and distinctly uncommon when found together.
