A 5-year-old, previously healthy, white boy presented to the clinic because of a nonpruritic, generalized erythematous rash and fever. He was seen in the clinic on day 2 of fever and was started on cefalexin for a presumptive diagnosis of scarlet fever. However, he remained febrile despite the antibiotic, even to day 5 of illness. His rash had then spread over the entire body.
