DRUG-INDUCED STEVENS-JOHNSON SYNDROME AND TOXIC EPIDERMAL NECROLYSIS

ABSTRACT

Steven-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) are rare diseases that appear following the administration of risk drugs. Both are severity grades of the same condition and are considered medical emergencies, because they are potentially lethal. They are characterized by mucocutaneous tenderness, erythema, necrosis and bullous detachment similar to extended burns. We report 3 cases of SJS/TEN in which the etiology was probably drug-related (Paracetamol, Atomoxetinum, Sulfamethoxazolum + trimethoprinum), with restitutio ad integrum following the administration of intravenous immunoglobulins.

Keywords: Steven-Johnson syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis, drug-related etiology, intravenous immunoglobulins
