Abstract: Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis are some of the most serious, usually drug-induced, skin reactions. We report a case of severe toxic epidermal necrolysis in a child, which in addition to ophthalmic sequelae, caused extensive hypertrophic scarring of the skin. Such a course is uncommon and has rarely been described in the literature.
