Purpura fulminans is a hemorrhagic condition associated predominantly with meningococcal and other gram negative septicemias. It occurs mainly in infants and younger children. Features include tissue necrosis, small vessel thrombosis, disseminated intravascular coagulation, multi-organ failure and death. Other causes include clotting factor deficiencies and idiopathic varieties. The condition is uncommon due to gram positive bacterial sepsis. We report one such case with gram positive bacterial infection.
