Drug Reaction/Rash with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms (DRESS) vs. Steven Johnson (SJS) vs. Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN)
This CHOC grand rounds video, featuring Dr. Laura Pruitt, pediatric resident, PGY-3, provides an overview of the syndromes of DRESS, SJS and TEN to compare the similarities and highlight the differences of these distinct diseases. The presentation covers the common presenting symptoms, the underlying causes and current proposed treatments.
The goal of this presentation is to improve recognition of each of these syndromes by both general pediatricians and hospitalist physicians, allowing for earlier intervention and treatment.
