Toxic Shock Syndrome - Prognosis

When treated promptly and correctly, both TSS and STSS can be cured. TSS tends to recur within a period of about six months. The bacteria that cause the two diseases can also spread to other parts of the body and can produce complications in the liver, kidneys, lungs, and other organs. Untreated toxic shock syndrome can be fatal.
