Background & Aims: Stevens Johnson syndrome (SJS) is a severe hypersensitive reaction and a life-threatening, immunologically mediated and usually drug-induced disease. Sulfonamides, allopurinol, and cold medicines are some of these allergen drugs. pregnant women comprise a subset of individuals at risk for SJS development. The aim of the article was to report a success pregnancy and delivery in a woman after 5 years of SJS diagnosis.
Case Report: This case report study was conducted at Imam Khomeini Hospital in Khalkhal, Iran. In this study, we discussed on the history of pregnancy and delivery in a woman 5 years following SJS diagnosis with vaginal stenosis resulting from Azithromycin and Naproxen treatment for cold. This study showed that there is a possibility of successful pregnancy and delivery in the people with SJS and long-term complications caused by it.
Conclusion: Health care providers must be careful concerning drug reactions, especially the occurrence of SJS, which is a potentially harmful and fatal condition.
