Abstract

The Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a severe manifestation of erythema multiforme associated with multisystem involvement. It is extremely unusual for patients with this syndrome to present with indications for eye surgery. Respiratory tract involvement can make the management of the airway and tracheal intubation difficult. We describe herein the perioperative management of a patient with this disease who underwent surgery for amniotic membrane transplantation.
