Staphylococcus aureus is known to exacerbate atopic dermatitis with production of bacterial enterotoxins and superinfection of lesions [1-3]. We report the first case of severe atopic dermatitis in a human exacerbated by Staphylococcus intermedius, which has been associated with exacerbation of atopic dermatitis in dogs. After failing first and second-line therapies, our patient had significant improvement with high-dose IVIG treatment.
