Abstract: We report a 10-year-old girl in whom Stevens–Johnson syndrome (SJS) (with acute gingivostomatitis and conjunctivitis) was associated with a pustular eruption clinically and histologically similar to Sneddon–Wilkinson subcorneal pustulosis. This is a very rare form of SJS, the true incidence of which is probably underestimated.
