Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN) Lawsuits Reviewed Nationwide
Toxic Epidermal Necrolsysis syndrome (TENS), which is also known as Lyell’s Syndrome, is a more severe form of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS). It is a debilitating skin condition which could be caused by side effects of several different medications.
The product liability lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. investigate potential Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis lawsuits throughout the United States for individuals diagnosed with TEN or SJS.

- Fever or flu-like symptoms
A diagnosis of Toxic Epidermal Necroslysis is usually clinically made when skin lesions cover greater than 30% of the body.
