Abstract

Two familial cases of perianal streptococcal dermatitis in a 3-year-old girl and her 5- 1/2 -year-old brother are reported. The clinical features of well-demarcated perianal erythema variably associated with itching, painful defecation with subsequent constipation, rectal bleeding, and proctitis are reviewed, together with suggestions for the best therapy.
