In preparation of my upcoming talk on #dermatology emergencies for the @SHMlive conference, I thought I'd put together my first #tweetorial on Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS). Having never done this, apologies in advance for subpar tweeting! Here we go!

SJS and its more severe cousin, Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN), are life-threatening dermatologic toxicities, usually caused by a drug trigger. In rare cases, they can be triggered by infection (more commonly seen in the #pediatric population).

#SJS usually presents with an atypical targetoid macular (flat) eruption with +nikolsky. This is in contrast to another entity on the ddx, erythema multiforme, which has classic target papular (raised) lesions. See the difference? (hands are EM, back is SJS). CC @dermnetnz!
