what are the nursing and medical management of steven johnson syndrome
Response from Dr. Henry
The range of symptoms with Stevens- Johnson syndrome can be very broad but in the worst cases the problems can resemble those with severe burns with skin sloughing, mucous surface irritation/sloughing, lung involvement, and problems with fluid and electrolyte balance. Often an eye specialist, skin specialist, or a burn specialist may need to be involved. Sometimes intravenous hydrations and corticosteroids are used. KH
