Skin Detachment and Regrowth in Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis

Case Rep Dermatol. 2010 Apr 30;2(1):60-64. doi: 10.1159/000313866.


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.
