Steven Johnsons Syndrome

Dr. Rajesh Shah, MD

Introduction

Stevens - Johnson syndrome is a rare but serious disorder of the skin and mucous membranes characterized by inflammation of the mucous membrane leading to the red or purplish rash. Stevens - Johnson syndrome is often an unwanted gift of the conventional drugs. One of the major groups of drugs is pain killer medicines which are often bought over the counter such as Paracetamol, NSAD, etc.

Causes of Stevens - Johnson syndrome

The exact cause is not fully understood. However it is considered that it is a specific type of allergic reaction to medications or infections. Medications:

  • NSAID
  • Cox-2 inhibitors
  • Sulfonamides or penicillin for infections
  • Anticonvulsants

Infections:

  • Herpes (simplex or zoster)
  • Influenza
  • HIV
  • Diphtheria
  • Typhoid
  • Hepatitis

Rare causes:

Physical stimulus given by UV rays or radiation therapy.

Others:

Existing medical conditions which lower the immunity of the body for e.g. HIV or SLE increase the risk for this syndrome.

Genetic:

Carrying a gene called HLAB12 may make you susceptible to SJS.
