Hello doctors.
I'm studying micro using kaplan notes.
It says under major exotoxins:
Endotoxin enhancer - staph aureus (TSST-1) and strep pyogenes (exotoxin A)

I am confused becauses endotoxins are found in gram negative organisms..
And s.aureus and s.pyogenes are gram positive organisms..

Could that be just a typo error?

Thank you for sharing hour knowledge! smiling face
