Toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) and Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) present with extensive epidermal detachment of the skin and mucous membranes as well as systemic involvement. Drug hypersensitivity is the major culprit for TEN/SJS and viral infections such as COVID-19 might also induce SJS/TEN. Drug eruptions are often clinically indistinguishable from viral infections. Here we present a case who reported with SJS/TEN syndrome after taking medications for COVID-19. She was a 70 yr old lady diagnosed and being treated carcinoma breast. She contracted COVID-19 infection and her treatment had to be withheld . She took medications for COVID-19 and later developed SJS/TEN syndrome with pruritic maculopapular rashes involving entire body.
