We provide information on the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of eyes. Eye symptoms are highly likely to be after-effects.

SJS and its severe type, TEN, cause rash and blisters on the skin and mucous membranes of the whole body with sudden high fever. They are thought of as serious drug side effects (severe drug eruption), but they are so rare diseases that there are little specialists with it.
About 70 to 80% of patients have eye symptoms. If patients have them from the acute phase, visual impairment and severe dry eye may maintain after the general condition recovers.

This website provides information on diagnosis, treatment, social security, etc., especially focusing on eye symptoms, for the purpose of supporting SJS/TEN patients.
