Abstract

A 24-year-old female patient complained of odynophagy, rhinitis, general apathy and fever (38.5 degrees C) which had persisted for 5 days. Treatment had initially been a combination of paracetamol, ibuprofen and acetylsalicylic acid and when no improvement occurred amoxicillin was prescribed. Nutrition and fluid intake was not possible due to excessive odynophagy. In addition to leukocytosis and increased C-reactive protein, there were pronounced erosive, reddened edematous and fibrin-covered alterations of the whole oral, pharyngeal and laryngeal mucous membranes as well as conjunctivitis. The lips were red with hemorrhagic scabs. The diagnosis was Fuchs' syndrome which is a severe medication-induced skin reaction. Abstinence from the agent (medication) responsible and early cortisone therapy are decisive.
