Antibiotics were the culprit in 5 out of 10 patients. One patient with the diagnosis of TEN died, given extensive skin involvement complicated by sepsis. Antibiotics and antiepileptics were the culprits in 8 out of 10 patients. Toxic epidermal necrolysis and Stevens-Johnson syndrome are acute inflammatory skin reactions [ 1 ]. Studies showed increased incidence with age and the number of medications taken [ 3 ]. The onset is generally caused by exposure to a medication such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents, antibiotics, and anticonvulsants [ 3 ]. It generally presents with skin blistering and desquamation with involvement of mucosal surfaces.
Although Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis were once thought to be separate conditions, they are now considered part of a continuum. Stevens-Johnson syndrome represents the less severe end of the disease spectrum, and toxic epidermal necrolysis represents the more severe end. Within a few days, the skin begins to blister and peel, forming very painful raw areas called erosions that resemble a severe hot-water burn. The skin erosions usually start on the face and chest before spreading to other parts of the body. In most affected individuals, the condition also damages the mucous membranes, including the lining of the mouth and the airways, which can cause trouble with swallowing and breathing. The painful blistering can also affect the urinary tract and genitals. Because the skin normally acts as a protective barrier, extensive skin damage can lead to a dangerous loss of fluids and allow infections to develop.
Supportive care remains the mainstay of treatment, and includes wound care, fluid and electrolyte management, management of medical co-morbidities, and infection control. The value of adjuvant therapy remains unclear, but new recent retrospective studies suggest that the combination therapies may be efficacious. Supportive care is the most universally accepted therapy, although specific strategies may vary among institutions. Adjuvant therapies include corticosteroids, IVIG, cyclosporine, TNF alpha inhibitors, and plasmapheresis but prospective data is still lacking. Clinical trials that may better elucidate their efficacy are currently under way. This is a preview of subscription content, access via your institution. Rent this article via DeepDyve.

Toxic epidermal necrolysis TEN is an acute and severe skin disease with clinical and histological features characterized by the destruction and detachment of the skin epithelium and mucous membranes. Onset may occur at any age, but the risk increases after 40 years. The initial manifestations are nonspecific: a seemingly banal rash, fever, and a burning sensation involving the eyes, mouth and genitalia. The rash rapidly progresses to become vesicular and bullous on the face and body.

Widespread apoptosis of keratinocytes is provoked by the activation of a cell-mediated cytotoxic reaction and amplified by cytokines, mainly granulysin. Confluent purpuric and erythematous macules evolving to flaccid blisters and epidermal detachment often start on the upper trunk and spread to the limbs associated with mucous membrane involvement. Histopathology shows full-thickness necrosis of epidermis associated with mild mononuclear cell infiltrate.
Various etiologies like infections, drugs and malignancies have been proposed. The aim of the present study was to know the incidence, common causes, clinical course of SJS and TEN and to estimate the morbidity and mortality. A detailed examination to know the cutaneous and mucosal involvement was done. Biopsy was done in 3 patients. The incidence of erythema multiforme, Stevens Johnson syndrome and Toxic epidermal necrolysis.

Поэтому отключение представляло собой сложную серию подтверждений и протоколов, гораздо более сложную, чем запуск ядерной ракеты с подводной лодки. - У нас есть время, но только если мы поспешим, - сказал Джабба. - Отключение вручную займет минут тридцать. Фонтейн по-прежнему смотрел на ВР, перебирая в уме остающиеся возможности. - Директор! - взорвался Джабба. - Когда эти стены рухнут, вся планета получит высший уровень допуска к нашим секретам. Высший уровень.
Беккер глубоко вздохнул и перестал жаловаться на судьбу.
Беккеру это показалось дурным предзнаменованием. Он подбежал к кассе. - El vuelo a los Estados Unidos. Стоявшая за стойкой симпатичная андалузка посмотрела на него и ответила с извиняющейся улыбкой: - Acaba de salir.
Медленно, словно после укола транквилизатора, он поднял голову и начал внимательно рассматривать пассажиров. Все до единого - панки.
Common culprits are antimicrobials, anti-epileptic drugs and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents NSAIDs.
