Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) is a severe mucocutaneous skin reaction with extensive necrosis and detachment of the epidermis. Nevirapine is one of the high risk agents implicated in development of SJS. Here, we present a case of 27 years old male with HIV infection who was diagnosed to have SJS following administration of nevirapine. [Int J Basic Clin Pharmacol 2014; 3(2.000): 401-402]
