Mycoplasma pneumoniae and atypical Stevens-Johnson syndrome in a hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipient.Pediatr Blood Cancer. 2008 Jun; 50(6):1278-9.PB
Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) is not typically reported following hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT). The most severe form of SJS, which is toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) has been reported following HSCT, albeit very rarely. We describe a case of Mycoplasma-associated SJS following HSCT. While this association is commonly reported in previously healthy children, it has not been reported in patients following HSCT.
