Abstract

Toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) has been shown to occur following administration of many different medications. Recently, we observed a patient who sustained a severe case of TEN shortly following the administration of foscarnet. Since this agent has not been previously associated with this complication, we report the first case of TEN occurring secondary to treatment with foscarnet.
