Stevens Johnson Sydrome

7:05 PM Ritz 1 Comments

It's my first to handle a patient with a Stevens Johnson Syndrome. This disease is a rare condition common in adults but not true to all. My patient is a child, a 10 year-old girl. Look at the picture below. That's how a person looks like with Stevens Johnson Syndrome.

Stevens Johnson Syndrome is caused by drug allergies, infections and genetics. As for my patient, the doctor is still looking what causes her present disease. I just hope that my patient will be cured. While she's in the hospital, I'll give her the best care I have.

  1. Ouch that looks painful. I had my clinical exposure in the burn unit for almost a month. I've never heard of this condition before. Thanks for putting it up. I will do some research on it. I hope your patient gets well soon.
