Journal Title:Indian Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology

Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN) is a rare, life-threatening dermatological manifestation which usually develops after intake of some culprit drugs. These drugs often belong to antibiotics, sulfonamides, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and anti-convulsants. We here report a fatal case of an elderly male patient who developed TEN soon after the intake of levetiracetam.
