Stevens-Johnson Syndrome is a serious disorder of the mucous membranes. It is a potentially fatal disorder that manifests itself through painful blisters and the erosion of the skin surface.
It can also cause flu-like symptoms, including aches, coughing, headaches, and fever. Around 15% of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome cases result in death.
Stevens-Johnson Syndrome is caused by a number of factors, including the use of certain prescription drugs, cocaine use, and radioactive treatment for cancer.
Failure to Disclose Stevens-Johnson Syndrome as a Side Effect on Prescription Drugs
The manufacturers of prescription drugs that cause Stevens-Johnson Syndrome sometimes fail to document the disorder as a side effect.
These failures contribute to countless cases of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome each year.
Prescription drug users who were not informed of the risk the drug presented upon receipt of their prescription and later contracted the disorder should take the time to contact a Personal Injury Lawyer to understand their legal rights.
