Description:This image depicts the eyes of a 19 year-old, who’d pulled his lower lids downward, thereby, exposing the bilateral erythematous conjunctival membranes, which had been attributed to Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), also known as erythema multiforme major.
Erythema multiforme is an allergic reaction in response to medications, infections, or illness and require only symptomatic therapy. SJS can be life-threatening, whereupon, due to epidermal necrosis, the epidermis separates from the underlying dermis.
