Abstract

Background/Purpose: To report a case of toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) involving 90% body surface area, successfully treated with a nanocrystalline silver dressing (Acticoat, Smith & Nephew, Largo, FL). Methods: A review of the hospital and acute wound center patient records and the recent English medical literature regarding TEN and nanocrystalline silver dressing. Results: We found only 1 report of TEN treated with a nanocrystalline silver dressing. The nanocrystalline silver dressing was both effective in preventing wound infection and convenient for treating our patient with TEN. Conclusion: The use of nanocrystalline silver dressing should be considered for the treatment of TEN.
