While dermatologic manifestations of adverse drug reactions are frequent, drug-induced liver injury is rare. Numerous drugs are implicated in either Drug-Induced Liver Injury or Drug-Induced Skin Injury. However, concomitant Drug-Induced Liver Injury and Drug-Induced Skin Injury are uncommon, not well characterized and appear to be caused by a limited number of drugs. Read More

Purpose: To estimate the specific incidences of Stevens-Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis (SJS/TEN) among new users of drugs frequently reported to be associated with this serious event.
Methods: We performed a case-population approach, which combined data from a registry of SJS/TEN cases from the Madrid region (numerator) during the study period 2005-2015 and a primary healthcare database from the same catchment population. The proportion of new users of drugs estimated in the primary healthcare database was stratified by calendar year, sex and age (5-year bands), and then applied to the same strata of Madrid's population census to compute the number of new users (denominator).

What Is Known And Objective: Drug-induced liver injuries (DILI) are overall rare and often associated with use of medications. Medications are also the most common aetiology of Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), but SJS is seldom seen concomitantly with liver injury. Many common drugs can cause either one of these conditions; however, there are no reported cases of concomitant DILI and SJS secondary to fluoxetine. Read More

Drug-induced skin sensitization is prevalent worldwide and can trigger life-threatening health conditions, such as Stevens Johnson Syndrome. However, existing in vitro skin models cannot adequately predict the skin sensitization effects of drugs administered into the systemic circulation because dermal inflammation and injury are preceded by conversion of parent drugs into antigenic reactive metabolites in the liver and subsequent activation of the immune system. Here, we demonstrate that recapitulation of these early tandem cellular processes in a compartmentalized liver-immune coculture array is sufficient to predict the skin sensitization potential of systemic drugs.

Lamotrigine (LTG) is associated with the potential for a life-threatening rash (eg, Stevens-Johnson syndrome or toxic epidermal necrolysis). The incidence has been linked to rapid titration and an interaction with valproic acid that can increase the level of LTG. Providers often have difficulty discriminating between serious versus benign rashes, and the package insert recommends discontinuing the medication at the first sign of a rash. Read More

Background: Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), and SJS/TEN overlap syndrome are severe drug-induced cutaneous adverse reactions with high mortality. Acute kidney injury (AKI) was a common complication in an SJS/TEN group and noted as an independent risk factor for mortality in patients with SJS/TEN. To determine whether AKI staging can predict the outcome of patients with SJS/TEN, we compared the discriminative power of an AKI KDIGO staging system with that of SCROTEN, APACHE II, APACHE III, and SOFA.
