Abstract

A 15-month-old girl presented with rash, fever, and vesicles around the mouth that worsened after erythromycin was administered. Subsequently, she was diagnosed with toxic epidermal necrolysis. Ocular involvement was treated with repeated complete corneal, conjunctival, and lid margin coverage with amniotic membrane. She recovered with minimal ocular sequelae despite persistent systemic symptoms.
