What is it about?
We report the case of a boy who developed Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) during a SARS-CoV-2 infection. The early diagnosis of SJS by urgent skin biopsy allowed the successful treatment of the disease with corticosteroids. No evident causative agent was specified and SARS-CoV-2 infection was suggested to have a role in the development of SJS.
