Nimesulide induced Stevens Johnson syndrome (SJS); managed successfully with combined approach of steroids, intravenous immunoglobulin and placentrex gel: A case report


There is a high mortality rate in Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS) and it ranges between 5%-15%. At present, there is no definite consensus regarding treatment in SJS although the effectiveness of intravenous immunoglobulin’s (IVIg) and immunosuppressive like cyclosporine have generated new hopes in the lives of these patients. But the options of combination therapy of steroids, IVIg and Placentrex gel have not been fully exercised in SJS. Henceforth, we report a case of Nimesulide induced SJS; managed successfully with a combined approach without any recurrence during a 12 months follow-up.
