Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) or erythema multiforme (EM) major is a complex immunological syndrome characterized by acute blistering, affecting skin and at least two mucous membranes. Toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) is the most severe form of EM involving skin, which sloughs in sheets. Corneal damage is the most severe long-term complication for survivors of SJS and TEN. Conjunctival inflammation is commonly encountered in Ophthalmic practice. In children, allergy and infections form the most common etiology of conjunctivitis and antibiotics are often prescribed for all conjunctival inflammations presenting with red eye. The purpose of this report is to report the rare case of SJS with topical use of fluroquinolone.
