Erythema Multiforme, Stevens Johnson Syndrome, and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis are insidious, deadly variants of the same condition in which the body fools itself into thinking the skin, mucus membranes, and internal body organs are foreign invaders: so the body literally attempts to rid itself of the skin and internal organs. Survivors of this horrific, life-changing condition face untold challenges. Many physicians are unsure how to treat this condition and accurate information is scarce on the long-term ramifications. This book details all known information about this condition: the causes, signs / symptoms; treatment, and long-term health ramifications never before understood. Includes medical management protocols for physicians, a chapter devoted to the eyes by Dr. Tseng, and interviews with survivors. This valuable book contains information that may save your life, or it may help the survivor come to terms in living with this condition by knowing what to expect. Highly acclaimed by the medical community.
