Hence, AGEP is known to have a good prognosis and to be life-threatening only in elderly patients or patients with Chronic diseases [1]. Both of our patients responded well to corticosteroids and one of them required intravenous immunoglobulin [2]. He presented with rash and Fever several weeks after introduction of lamotrigine, having been on valproic acid for seizure disorder [3]. Treg migration toward epithelial Cells is regulated by certain chemokines, including TARC/CCL17 and MDC/CCL22 [4]. Patients with SJS/TEN were assessed clinically using the SCORe of Toxic Epidermal Necrosis (SCORTEN) Scale [5].

In most patients with aqueous-deficient dry Eye, pharmaceutical tear substitutes are used to control symptoms and prevent ocular surface damage [6]. However, in severe dry Eye conditions caused by cicatricial disorders, such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome and ocular cicatricial mucous membrane pemphigoid, noninvasive treatments are insufficient, and patients are at risk of developing complications that can lead to blindness [7]. By contrast, little is known about the shared and unique enhancer regulatory mechanisms in different ectodermally derived epithelial Cells [8]. Furthermore, we found that two SNPs previously linked to corneal diseases, astigmatism and Stevens-Johnson syndrome, fall within corneal epithelial enhancers and alter their activity by disrupting transcription factor motifs that overlap these SNPs [9]. In Ikzf1 Tg, we observed Dermatitis and mucosal Inflammation including the ocular surface [10].

A cyclic Recurrence of her symptoms was noted, and the diagnosis of autoimmune progesterone dermatitis was made by an intradermal progesterone challenge [11]. The use of immunosuppressive agents such as Corticosteroids and intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) is controversial [12]. Recent studies have revealed that the prevalence of SJS/TEN is associated with genetic backgrounds, such as polymorphisms in human leukocyte antigens (HLAs) [13]. Although most cases are mild, some patients have extrapulmonary complications including mucocutaneous Eruptions including Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) and erythemamultiforme (EM) [14]. The SCORTEN score (SCORe of Toxic Epidermal Necrosis) for establishing the seriousness is 1 [15].
