[Stevens-Johnson syndrome associated with esophageal stenosis].


Stevens-Johnson syndrome consists of inflammatory bullous lesions of the skin and mucous membranes and seems to be associated to several pharmacologic and/or infectious triggering factors which might share a common immunologic way. Esophageal stenosis secondary to Stevens-Johnson syndrome is very rare. During the last 40 years, only two cases in children have been reported. In the present work, we report clinical features and anesthetic management of a 6-year-old girl requiring seven general anesthesia procedures with ketamine and isoflurane for correction of esophageal stenosis.
