Invasive GAS Infections Figure

Invasive GAS disease has been the subject of several studies since the late 1980s and early 1990s because of its apparent reemergence during this period. Although the common manifestation of invasive GAS disease is cellulitis and other types of skin and soft-tissue infections (almost 50% of invasive disease cases), it is notoriously difficult to diagnose microbiologically because bacterial isolates are seldom recovered from infected tissue. Most invasive infections are confirmed because of bacteraemia.
