Abstract
Introduction: Toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) is a severe mucocutaneous adverse reaction that is generally rare, but potentially life-threatening and commonly drug induced. The incidence of TEN is 1.2-6/million person-years. The average reported mortality rate of TEN is 25-35%;Phenytoin is commonly prescribed antiepileptic drugs. The incidence of phenytoin induced TEN was found to be 13.04%. Case presentation: Our patient is 38 years old male Nepalese patient who presented with seizures. His CT brain revealed neurocysticercosis. He has been discharged on phenytoin as prophylactic therapy. One month later he presented with fever, sore throat and rashes for the last month. Amoxicillin/Clavulanate prescribed to him for assumed tonsillitis. 3 days later, patient presented with extensive skin peeling of 100% of body surface area with mucous membranes involvement. Management and outcome: Supportive care started in ED and patient has been admitted to ICU for continued management. Discussion: Although unpredictable, serious sequelae of TEN can be prevented by early recognition and withdrawal of the culprit medications.
