Jaundice as a manifestation of scarlet fever rarely has been recorded in the American and English literature. Osler in 1900 (1) and Crandall in 1920 (2) did not mention it, which is a particularly interesting omission in view of the greater severity of scarlet fever in their era. Similarly, recent texts and reviews have not mentioned this clinical combination (3-12). Descriptions of jaundice occurring with scarlet fever emphasize its occurrence after the second week rather than during the acute phase of the exanthem (13).
Within one year, 3 adults whose onset of scarlet fever was associated with jaundice were observed
