Abstract

Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) is a cytotoxic immune disorder that causes serious damage to the skin and mucous membranes. SJS is a rare disorder that is triggered by particular medications or infections. De Man (1979), for the first time, described an abnormal root development due to SJS. While systemic complications were frequently reported, the abnormal root development in SJS has been rarely reported as an oral and maxillofacial complication of SJS. In this case report, a 26-year-old woman who had experienced SJS at the age of 9 year exhibited excessive tooth wear on whole dentition. While multiple teeth with incomplete root development showed slightly increased mobility, these teeth were not pathological and were erupted up to their normal functional position. Therefore, full-mouth rehabilitation procedures were completed to protect the worn dentition and improve the masticatory function and anterior esthetics.
