A 29 year-old man developed skin eruption with inflammed conjunctiva and buccal mucosa after taking some analgesia of unknown name. The appearance and history were characteristic of drug-induced Steven-Johnson's syndrome. The patient recovered with only reduced tear production as detected on Schirmer's test.
