Stevens-Johnson Syndrome Information and Warnings

Stevens-Johnson Syndrome is a condition usually brought on by an allergic reaction to a drug. It can be fatal or produce horrific permanent injury.
The condition was first discovered in 1922 by two doctors named Stevens and Johnson, who had two young male patients with skin lesions, fever, inflamed mucosa, and conjunctivitis. Stevens and Johnson thought the condition was an infectious disease. As the condition has been studied over the years, researchers have debated whether there are various similar diseases, or whether two other conditions – erythema multiforme major and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) – are different diseases or just various degrees of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. The names of these conditions are often used interchangeably.
The cause of Stevens-Johnson syndrome is not exactly known, but it may involve damage to blood vessels in the skin that leads to tissue damage. Stevens-Johnson Syndrome is very often associated with herpes simplex or mycoplasma infections. Death of skin and mucus membrane tissue can cause serious problems. Loss of protective skin can lead to secondary infections, and the sloughing of tissue in the lungs can cause breathing problems and severe injury to the lungs.
Serious effects of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome include permanent scarring of the skin as though it had been seriously burned; inflammation of the lung, heart, kidney, or liver; and shock and systemic infection.
