Toxic epidermal necrolysis treated with intravenous immunoglobulin and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor.

Abstract

We report a case of toxic epidermal necrolysis who was successfully treated with intravenous immunoglobin and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor. He had poor prognostic factors such as extensive epidermal loss, neutropenia, acute respiratory distress syndrome and candida sepsis, but nonetheless made a complete recovery.
