Skin detachment and regrowth in toxic epidermal necrolysis


Feldmeyer, L; Harr, T; Cozzio, A; French, L E; Navarini, A A (2010). Skin detachment and regrowth in toxic epidermal necrolysis. Case Reports in Dermatology, 2(1):60-64.

Abstract

Toxic epidermal necrolysis is a rare but clinically well-described dermatological pathology. However, clinical pictures of this disorder in text books do not reflect its dynamic evolution. Usually, the desquamative post-bullous stage is represented, neglecting the initial bullous stage as well as the skin healing. With one clinical case, we provide a day-after-day illustration of the evolution of a patient suffering from toxic epidermal necrolysis. During one month, a skin area of a limb was regularly photo-documented.
