SJS Lawyers and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis Litigation

Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) is a serious disorder of the skin and mucous membranes. It begins with flu-like symptoms and eventually develops into a painful red or purplish rash that spreads and blisters.

Depending on the severity, it can take weeks to months to recover from SJS.

Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN) is also a skin disorder with symptoms similar to SJS. However, TEN typically involves more of the victim’s body surface being covered than SJS.

Both of these skin disorders can cause serious injury or even be fatal. Injuries can include:

  • Scarring
  • Photophobia
  • Organ damage
  • Disfigurement
  • Blindness
  • Varying degrees of skin detachment

SJS and TEN may be caused by many different types of common prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Some of these drugs include sulfonamides, anticonvulsants, chlormezanone, allopurinol, and NSAIDs. Over-the-counter drugs that have been linked to these disorders consist of aspirin and ibuprofen.
