Version 2.77


Staphylococcus aureus is a bacteria that produces many enterotoxins which are a major cause of food poisoning. These toxins are also allergens that activate IgE and worsen skin infections by stimulating inflammation. Staphylococcus aureus enterotoxin E (SEE) is one of six enterotoxins secreted by S. aureus that often colonizes patients with atopic dermatitis. Those colonies secrete enterotoxins which penetrate the lesions of the area of dermatitis. Patients with IgE to the toxin and S. aureus on the skin have much more severe dermatitis.[] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
