Résumé (français)  :

Abstract (English)  :

A healthy 31-year-old woman showed a severe septic shock syndrome a few days after vaginal delivery. In the episiotomy wound were found Group A Streptococci and E. coli. Although an antibiotic therapy was instituted immediately, the condition of the patient worsened. Platelet counts fell below 5000/microliter and she developed respiratory, cardiocirculatory and renal insufficiency, so that mechanical ventilation, high-dose-catecholamine therapy and continuous venovenous hemodiafiltration had to be performed. In the course of the disease the patient showed a reversible cardiomegaly with pulmonary hypertension and an extensive desquamation of the skin. Fever persisted in spite of the fact that in all following clinical and laboratory examinations no septic focus could be revealed any longer. She recovered slowly and could not be weaned from the respirator for four weeks because of a severe critical illness polyneuromyopathy.
