The DRESS syndrome: a literature review.
Clinical classification of cases of toxic epidermal necrolysis, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, and erythema multiforme.
This study suggests that an illustrated atlas is a useful tool for standardizing the diagnosis of acute severe bullous disorders that are attributed to drugs or infectious agents.
Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) – A clinical reaction pattern
There seems to be a subgroup with characteristic clinical features and a typical course which is mostly caused by drugs for which the term acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) has been established.
Drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS): an original multisystem adverse drug reaction. Results from the prospective RegiSCAR study
Cases of severe drug hypersensitivity, demonstrating a variable spectrum of cutaneous and systemic involvement, are reported under various names, especially drug reaction with eosinophilia and
SCORTEN: a severity-of-illness score for toxic epidermal necrolysis.
It is demonstrated that the risk of death of toxic epidermal necrolysis patients can be accurately predicted by the toxic epidescent severity-of-illness score, and the Simplified Acute Physiology Score and burn score appear to be less adequate.
Severe adverse cutaneous reactions to drugs.
Adverse cutaneous reactions to drugs are frequent, affecting 2 to 3 percent of hospitalized patients, and prompt withdrawal of the offending drug is often the most important action to minimize morbidity.
Risk factors for acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP)—results of a multinational case–control study (EuroSCAR)
Background  Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) is a disease characterized by the rapid occurrence of many sterile, nonfollicular pustules usually arising on an oedematous erythema
