İhsan Kafadar, Betül Diler, Nazan Dalgıç Karabulut, Özlem Haşim

Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a rare, potentially life-threatening syndrome that occurs two months after exposure to anticonvulsants drugs such as phenobarbital, phenytoin, carbamazepine and lamotrigine. The use of the offending drug must be terminates immediately to prevent potentially fatal outcomes. In this study, we report a patient diagnosed generalized seizures, and who had received Lamotrigine but developed generalized skin rash at the second week of treatment and the drug was stopped.

Keywords: Lamotrigine, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, skin rash
