INDUCED STEVENS-JOHNSON SYNDROME IN A HUMAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS PATIENT: A CASE REPORT
Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) is an acute life-threatening condition. In 95% of case reports, drugs were found to be an important cause for the
development of SJS. About 100 drugs have been identified to causes of SJS. Very few reports were published on diclofenac-induced SJS. The incidence
rate of SJS is approximately 1-2/1000 individuals with human immunodeficiency virus. In this case report, we present a 58-year-old female developed
SJS after taking of diclofenac tablets.
Keywords: Stevens-Johnson syndrome, Diclofenac, Human immunodeficiency virus patients.
