syndrome is a condition that was first observed and described in the early 20th
Century by a pair of pediatricians for which the condition is named. This
disease is potentially fatal due to the toll it takes on the body while a
patient is suffering from the lesions and sores that can form both
superficially and internally. However, due to the advancements of medicine, the
mortality rate has decreased significantly in both adults and children
diagnosed with Stevens-Johnson syndrome.
Stevens-Johnson syndrome, or SJS, is a potentially fatal condition that presents with patches of dying skin over a patient's body and face. There are many causes for this condition, however, there are no disease-specific treatment options available for Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Many people recover from this condition without any recurring conditions if they receive immediate medical care, but without immediate medical care significant complications can arise as this disease has the potential to cause severe damage to the dermis and organs.
Stevens-Johnson Syndrome Pictures
Stevens-Johnson syndrome pictures typically portray the different external symptoms associated with this disease. As portions of the skin begin to change in color and die, a patient will often have dark patches of skin associated with the conditions of this illness. Other Stevens-Johnson syndrome pictures depict the associated illnesses that a patient may develop alongside the presenting illness; this includes lesions, ulcers and open sores on the patient's body and face.
