Bronchiolitis obliterans in children with Stevens-Johnson syndrome: follow-up with high resolution CT

Pediatr Radiol. 1996;26(1):22-5. doi: 10.1007/BF01403698.


About one third of children with Stevens-Johnson syndrome have pulmonary involvement. As a consequence of airway epithelial injury, bronchiolitis obliterans can occur in these patients. Two cases of Stevens-Johnson syndrome-associated bronchiolitis obliterans in children were diagnosed and followed by high resolution CT without open lung biopsy. Serial changes of high resolution CT features of bronchiolitis obliterans are discussed and the literature is reviewed.
