Trigeminal trophic syndrome (TTS) is a condition whereby persistent facial ulceration presents consequent to central or peripheral insult to the trigeminal nerve. Lesions are created by repetitive self-inflicted manipulation and trauma of dysaesthetic skin within the trigeminal dermatome. We discuss four cases with aetiologies varied from presumed microvascular compromise to resection of cerebral meningioma, cerebrovascular accident, and herpes zoster ophthalmicus. We discuss the management of the under-recognised associated periocular skin ulcerations that result from physical manipulation of dysesthic skin and prove to be persistent and challenging to treat...

Drug hypersensitivity syndrome or Drug Rash with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms or DRESS syndrome is a severe and potentially life-threatening toxidermia. It should be suspected in patients developing cutaneous reaction following drug intake. We report the case of a 45-year old patient treated for pulmonary tuberculosis (TPM+) who developed DRESS syndrom induced by antibacillaries.

Drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) or drug-induced hypersensitivity is a severe adverse drug-induced reaction. Aromatic anticonvulsants, such as phenytoin, phenobarbital, and carbamazepine, and some drugs, can induce DRESS. Atypical crystalluria can be seen in patients treated with amoxycillin or some drugs and can cause acute renal failure. We describe a 66-year-old man who presented fever and rash and acute renal failure three days after starting amoxycillin. He was also using phenytoin because of cerebral metastatic lung cancer...

Background It has been recently suggested that second-generation antipsychotic long-acting injection (SGA-LAIs) are underutilized in clinical practice, despite that their costs significantly impact on national health system budgets. Hence, an updated analysis of safety data shown by SGA-LAIs may contribute to clarify their role in clinical practice. Materials and methods English-language, peer-reviewed articles reporting updated, primary findings on the SGA-LAI safety were identified (updated through an electronic search of five databases - PubMed, EMBASE, PsycInfo, DARE and the Cochrane Library)...

DRESS syndrome is a cutaneous and systemic drug reaction with severe complications and a long course that can be fatal. Recognition may be difficult, and the condition is just rare enough that clinicians will eventually see it but may not be familiar with it. This review will focus on key elements to help clinicians with the challenges of recognition and differential diagnosis.

Drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptom (DRESS) is a serious idiosyncratic drug reaction. It is characterized by skin eruption, fever, hematologic abnormalities, and multi-organ involvement. Diagnosis is challenging because of the wide clinical spectrum. Its association with aromatic antiepileptic drugs, such as phenytoin, phenobarbital, and carbamazepine, has been well described in adults. There are few reports of DRESS syndrome in children, and knowledge about the relationship between new antiepileptic drugs such as oxcarbazepine and this syndrome is limited...
