Management of Drug-Induced Epidermal Necrolysis (DEN) in Pediatric Patients: Moving from Drug-Induced Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, Overlap and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis to a Single Unifying Diagnosis of DEN.

Paediatr Drugs 2022 Jul 9;24(4):307-319. Epub 2022 Jun 9.

Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Pediatric Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) are rare but life-threating blistering diseases triggered by medications that affect the skin and mucosae. Drug-induced epidermal necrolysis is a better term for medication-triggered cases because there is a spectrum of disease severity that otherwise is divided into the separate entities of SJS, overlap SJS/TEN, and TEN. This manuscript reviews the management of drug-induced epidermal necrolysis (DEN), including diagnosis, investigations to exclude differential diagnoses, and treatment. Read More

Angioimmunoblastic T-cell Lymphoma Mimicking DRESS Syndrome.

Cutis 2022 Mar;109(3):E29-E32

Department of Dermatology, Naval Medical Center, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) is a rare and aggressive lymphoma arising from follicular T-helper cells. Cutaneous findings and nonspecific systemic symptoms often associated with this malignancy can closely resemble those of more common entities, such as a viral exanthem or drug eruption, depending on the history and context. These similarities in presentation to more common entities can cause a delay in the diagnosis of AITL and subsequent initiation of treatment, which has considerable implications for morbidity and mortality.
