In addition vomiting 24 hours before admission several times. The patient developed culture of lesion infiltration puncture affected area of the right leg positive for Streptococcus pyogenes multisusceptible which was referred to the Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology Research Institute in Health Sciences for molecular characterization in which the bearing was detected virulence factors speA, speB and speC.
