Despite antibiotic therapy with vancomycin, ceftriaxone, and ciprofloxacin (quinolone), our patient succumbed to the VSSS which may be due to delayed proper antibiotic use in face of the mild prodrome.
In our patient, the indolent symptoms were indicative prodrome of endocarditis and 11 days later the patient developed VSSS.
gordonii-related VSSS in our case included a mild prodrome including myalgia, arthralgia, and purpura with dominant symptoms only on the left foot lasting for approximately 2 weeks, which is easily overlooked and misdiagnosed.

VSSS, in which any k out of n participants also operate as dealers.
In particular, most VSSSs [6-7, 28] only support post-verification property that each participant submits his secret share for doing reciprocal verifications.
A good F2 hybrid to try is the new disease-resistant, wrinkled Tyee, sold by JSS, RHS and VSSS
