Descriptor síndrome de Stevens-Johnson
Scope note: Rara erupción cutánea caracterizada por intensa apoptosis de QUERATINOCITOS que conduce a un desprendimiento de la piel con afectación de la mucosa. Con frecuencia está provocado por el consumo de drogas (ej. antibióticos y anticonvulsivantes) o va asociado a NEUMONÍA POR MYCOPLASMA. Se considera un continuo de la necrolisis epidérmica tóxica.

Scope note: Rare cutaneous eruption characterized by extensive KERATINOCYTE apoptosis resulting in skin detachment with mucosal involvement. It is often provoked by the use of drugs (e.g., antibiotics and anticonvulsants) or associated with PNEUMONIA, MYCOPLASMA. It is considered a continuum of Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis.

Concept UI M0007553
Scope note An exfoliative disease of skin seen primarily in adults and characterized by flaccid bullae and spreading erythema so that the skin has the appearance of being scalded. It results primarily from a toxic reaction to various drugs, but occasionally occurs as a result of infection, neoplastic conditions, or other exposure.
