Personal Injury Law Firm Issues New Infographic Detailing a Potential Link Between Stevens Johnson Syndrome and Common Children’s Medicines
Date:5/24/2013

(PRWEB) May 24, 2013

According to the National Institutes of Health, Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS) is a form of toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) that affects the skin and mucous membranes. SJS occurs most commonly in children and young adults under the age of 30 (i). In the early stages SJS presents flu-like symptoms, including fatigue, sore throat, and fever. As SJS advances, it affects the mucous membranes such as the eyes, mouth (lips and tongue), genitals, and anus. Inflammation of the eye causes conjunctivitis (pink eye). Inflammation of the mouth causes the lips and tongue to swell making it difficult and painful for the patient to swallow. Serious cases of SJS affect skin all over the body causing rashes, blisters, breaks in the skin, and can even cause nails to fall off (ii).

There have been several serious cases of SJS among children that have been reported in the news. In January 2005, The Seattle Times reported on two cases of SJS involving Heather Rose Kiss and Kaitlyn Langstaff (iii). The article reported that in March 2003 three-year-old Heather Rose Kiss passed away from SJS and TEN within a week of taking Children's Advil. In December 2003, nine-year-old Kaitlyn Langstaff died after a 20-month battle with SJS. According to the article, she had taken Children’s Motrin. In February 2013, CBS News reported that a Boston jury returned a $63 million award for injuries caused to Samantha Reckis by SJS when she was seven-years-old. The article reported that Samantha took Children's Motrin which caused her to suffer SJS, lose 90% of her skin
