Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) is a rare but severe mucocutaneous epidermolysis commonly triggered by medications. SJS is characterized by mucocutaneous lesions of the trunk, face, and limbs, as well as the oral cavity, gastrointestinal tract, and respiratory tract. Although uncommon, laryngeal involvement in SJS can lead to severe respiratory, phonatory and deglutitive complications. Providers caring for patients with SJS should maintain a high index of suspicion for laryngeal involvement and low threshold to solicit Otolaryngology consultation. Laryngeal complications can be more expediently managed when anticipated early in the course of disease. Laryngoscope, 2021.
